A form of healthcare that is over 2,500 years old. Acupuncture is effective in treating numerous health conditions. Hair thin needles are inserted into very specific points to promote balance and healing. The sensations felt with the needles are not painful. The needles are sterile, stainless steel and disposable. A thorough history and physical examination are obtained and an Oriental medical diagnosis is established prior to treatment.
Additional modalities may be used in conjunction with treatment, such as:
Herbology: Herbs are carefully selected to correct imbalances within the body to assist in treating many different health conditions. Formulas consist of two or more herbs and will be taken in capsule or tablet form.
