Pursuing acupuncture for health in our lives may not be the first choice, but it is the smartest choice. Robert Frost, a great American poet, wrote:
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”*
When you come to acupuncture with an ailment we ask about your symptoms, then feel your pulse and look at your tongue to figure out what imbalance is responsible for your condition. We use this information to make a Chinese medicine diagnosis and create a treatment plan to correct the imbalance. We then give you a medical treatment (acupuncture) to start healing your health problem.
In other words, you come in with a problem and we actually treat you for that problem. After your very first appointment you leave a different person. Changes are already taking place in your body after just one session that are pointing you more in the direction of health.
It’s not magic, and we don’t claim to fix every health condition 100%. But it’s amazing how many conditions we can improve, and in many cases resolve. Acupuncture for health uses the body’s innate healing capacity to restore balance. This process is able to alleviate many health issues, including pain, digestive issues, women’s health problems, sleep conditions and emotional imbalances.

Is Acupuncture Right For You?
Ask yourself these questions to help determine if acupuncture for health is right for you:
1. Are you satisfied with the level of your health right now?
2. Are you taking medications to manage health conditions, but would rather resolve the issue at the root level?
3. Is your sleep quality good?
4. Is your energy level good?
5. Do you have pain in your body?
6. Have you been diagnosed with a “medical condition” and feeling frustrated about the medical care you are receiving?
If you answered YES to any of these questions, give acupuncture a try. Within four to six visits you will know that it can make a positive difference in your life.
