Acupuncture & TCM
Relieve pain, strengthen the immune system, and promote the balance, harmony and integration of the functions of all bodily organs.
TCM has been in practice for over 2,000 years of recorded history. Through acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and modalities such as gua sha, tui na, cupping, and moxabustion, TCM takes a natural and supportive approach to bringing the body back into balance.
An acupuncture treatment considers all aspects of the human body, physical ailments, the emotional state of the patient, the individual spirit and the sort of lifestyle that the patient chooses to lead.

Do you offer TCM Herbs or supplements?
We only recommend supplements as part of a comprehensive treatment plan and do not sell them without an appointment over the counter. Ask your acupuncturist about herbs at your next visit!
What should I wear to my appointment?
Your acupuncturist will likely need to shift your clothing to access your arms, legs, and/or torso, so we generally recommend clothing that is loose, comfortable to rest in, and easy to slide or roll up for access. Separates and layers tend to work better than rompers, thick clothing, or long sleeves. However, if your clothing does not allow sufficient access, your therapist will provide a robe or gown for you to change into.
