Acupuncture involves the therapeutic stimulation of the channels and collaterals (Jing Luo) on the body's surface using extremely fine needles, in order to regulate and balance the flow of energy (qi) and blood circulation. If you are seeking relief from pain or chronic ailments, acupuncture is a safe and non-invasive option to consider.

Herbal Medicine

Traditional Chinese herbal medicine formulas are the result of over 2000 years of knowledge and involve a complex combination of carefully selected herbs to increase therapeutic effectiveness while minimizing toxicity and side-effects. At our clinic, we personalize each formula to suit your individual needs. We offer herbal medicine in modern concentrated granule form, which is free from pollutants and heavy metals, highly potent, and easy to take.

No-needle Treatment

We understand that some individuals may have a fear of needles, which is why we offer needle-free treatments as well. Shonishin is a gentle needle-less manipulation technique for babies and children, while cupping therapy, moxibustion, ear acupuncture, and frequency acupressure stimulation are effective alternatives to acupuncture for adults. These treatments can help alleviate a variety of daily ailments, and our experienced practitioner will work with you to determine the best course of treatment for your needs.
