Acupuncture is a therapy where small needles are inserted into energy points along the surface of the body. Scientific studies have shown how acupuncture utilizes the body’s own ability to heal which can lead to cures for many chronic conditions. Some of the most common conditions treated with acupuncture include:

  • Chronic pain and decreased mobility – from arthritis and back conditions

  • Neurologic conditions – including stroke, seizures, vestibular disease, paraparesis, and disk disease

  • Chronic kidney disease

  • Urinary incontinence and chronic urinary infections

  • Cancer– Acupuncture can be used to increase immunity, decrease pain, improve life quality, stimulate appetite and slow the spread and progression of cancer. It can also be used with chemotherapy and radiation treatments to increase white cells counts and decrease the side effects of these treatments.

  • Post Surgery – Acupuncture can improve recovery and help decrease pain and promote healing.

  • Inflammatory bowel disease

  • Chronic pancreatitis

herbal medicine

Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine is based on the same system of diagnosis that acupuncture utilizes.


Unlike western herbal medicine, Chinese herbal medicine uses herbs together in formulas of anywhere from three to twenty herbs. The action of the herbs is achieved by how the herbs work with either other and not just what the single herbs do alone.

When used together, Chinese herbs and acupuncture have a synergistic effect and can bring about more healing than the sum of both modalities separately.
