Acupuncture

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) have been practiced for over 2000 years.  Both are based on the basic premise that energy moves up and down our bodies in channels or pathways, and that we need to have good energy flow for optimal health.  Disease process and pain occur when the energy is out of balance being excessive, deficient or stagnant.  Small sterile needles are used to help restore balance to the system, and help to alleviate symptoms and root causes of disease and pain.  Acupuncture is effective for a multitude of symptoms and problems.  The National Institute of Health (NIH) recognizes acupuncture to the effective for the following:
