About Acupuncture & Herbs

Acupuncture is the insertion of sterile, fine needles into the body at specific points shown as effective in the treatment of specific health problems. Acupuncture points have been well documented for thousands of years in Asia as a means to regulate and balance the body's "Qi" (life force energy). Recent research in the US is also supporting the many health benefits of acupuncture.

Chinese herbs are considered safe for most people as they restore balance to the body and strengthen the body's ability to heal. The gentle action of herbs can complement standard western care with careful monitoring of herb/drug interactions. Herbs are grown and prepared under the highest standards to ensure consistent quality and potency.

You may need more than one treatment, depending upon the duration, severity, and nature of your complaint. You may need only a few treatments for an acute condition. A series of 4 to 15 treatments may resolve many chronic problems. Some degenerative conditions may require many treatments over time.
