Acupuncture Pre-Dates Western Medicine

 

As a form of healing, acupuncture dates back more than 2,000 years. The World Health Organization recognizes acupuncture and traditional Oriental medicine’s ability to treat over 200 commonly encountered clinical disorders. In many cases, clients seek my acupuncture services to complement their western treatments, or because they have not had much success with other treatments for their conditions.

 

I was trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and specialize in Five Element acupuncture.  Five Element acupuncture is built on the premise that our bodies share the rhythm with nature’s seasons, and that that there is a relationship between a person’s physical and emotional conditions.
