Chinese Medicine is one of the world’s longest standing systems of health. It has developed through continuous practical experience over thousands of years.

While the practice of acupuncture is relatively new outside of East Asia, it has a long recorded history of efficacy and is used by nearly one third of the world’s population as a primary health care system and by countless others as an adjunctive treatment.

Acupuncture balances the life force, thereby addressing the root of any distress or disease. Because the whole person (physical/mental/emotional) is being treated, the effects of treatment are often felt in areas beyond the main complaint. Initial signs of healing are improved sleep, better digestion, more energy, improved relationships, and a greater sense of well-being.

Traditionally esteemed as preventative medicine, acupuncture was used to correct minor imbalances before they developed into a more serious disease. The Chinese paid their acupuncturists when they were well, and stopped paying them if they became ill.

As life seems to become faster paced each day, the benefits of acupuncture in this society are increasingly recognized as a counter to this constant going and doing, more people are coming to understand the innate value of Chinese medicine as part of their preventive care to boost their immune systems and maintain greater overall health, well-being and vitality.

While you don’t have to be sick to receive acupuncture treatment, prominent health organizations such as the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) recognize the benefits of Chinese Medicine and endorse its practice as a safe, valid and effective form of medicine for many medical conditions, such as:
