Our goal is to help you enjoy long-term wellness with the reliable, proven techniques of Chinese medicine. We integrate acupuncture (and electro-acupuncture), herbal therapies, cupping, Gua Sha, lifestyle, dietary suggestions, and functional medicine testing. We are:
Genuine - we only recommend and provide the treatments needed; what we would want for ourselves and families.
Present - we gauge our success not only in the outcome of our treatments, but also in the quality of our relationships with our patients.
Integrated - we recognize we are part of a larger whole, both in your life and in the larger community. We accept you where you are.
We have extensive experience with reproductive health care for men and women, addressing immunity, fertility, the menstrual cycle, neuroendocrine disorders, pregnancy, labor, postpartum, and menopause. In addition to reproductive health, we also have great success helping our clients with chronic and acute injuries, pain, digestion, inflammation, stress, sleep, and complementary cancer support. If you are curious how acupuncture can help you, please call us or schedule an appointment online.
