Acupuncture is a integral part of Chinese Medicine practice, which may help patients to manage a range of symptoms that including pain, stress and fatigue. Acupuncture focuses on improving the overall wellbeing of the individual patient. Acupuncture originated from ancient China and treats patients by manipulating thin needles inserted into the skin to trigger specific acupuncture points. According to Traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of qi through channels known as meridians. Rather than treating disease, an acupuncturist treats patterns of disharmony (or symptom clusters) in a patient.
Our acupuncture treatments are not only based on specific acupuncture points from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) principles, but also complimented and derived from many years of our clinical experience and research. For complicated cases, our acupuncture practitioner and Chinese medicine practitioner may collaborate to discuss and execute an optimal treatment regimen. We also prescribe Chinese medicine to compliment acupuncture according to the patient’s condition to restore wholistic balance in the body, improve overall circulation, and enhance treatment outcome.
