The core of our acupuncture practice is focused on the holistic philosophy of balancing the Qi. This vital energy flows within us, carried by our blood and breath. Everyday stressors and environmental factors can disrupt this balance, impacting our health and well-being.

Our expertly trained acupuncturists utilize ultra-fine needles to unblock Qi along various meridians in the body, helping to restore your body’s natural equilibrium, priming it for optimal health. This can provide not only internal health benefits, but can actually make you look younger on the outside as well.

Among the many prescriptive treatments we offer are:


The stomach, gallbladder, spleen, and intestine connect with the brain through the blood vessels, nerve systems, and energetic channels known as meridians. Acupuncture can unblock those meridians.


Acupuncture can be effective for treating sleep disorders such as insomnia. It can help patients to fall asleep sooner, stay asleep with fewer episodes of waking up, and also reduce the anxiety a person feels when they have difficulty falling asleep.

Acupuncture provides relief for migraines and other headaches by releasing endorphins and other hormones, stimulating the circulatory system. This brings the patient relief from headache pain.

Acupuncture can provide fast relief of chronic lower back pain by opening the blocked meridians and moving the stagnated flow of qi and blood. Acupuncture can also stimulate the production of endorphins, the chemicals produced naturally by the nervous system to cope with pain.
