Some people wonder... is acupuncture right for me? You may wonder if acupuncture is a service that would be a good fit for treating your personal health concerns. What most people don't know is that for anything you can take a pill for in Western medicine, you can use acupuncture instead or in conjunction with Western medical treatments!

What is acupuncture? Acupuncture is a holistic treatment tool used under the umbrella of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine have been around for over 2,000 years. Licensed practitioners use sterile, one-time-use acupuncture needles the width of a human hair to stimulate acupuncture points located all over the body. Stimulating these points through acupuncture needles or acupressure can help bring more balance and harmony to the body. When we are in balance, we are pain free, stress free, and able to live our best lives.
Therapies other than acupuncture that fall under the Traditional Chinese Medicine umbrella are cupping, electrical stimulation, gua sha (also known as dermal friction), tui na (also known as Chinese Medical massage), herbal therapies, moxibustion, and more.
