Are you experiencing one of these health issues in your life right now?

  • You’ve felt stressed for so long you don’t remember what it’s like to feel energized anymore.
  • You don’t know the last good night’s sleep you had because you have trouble falling asleep and you wake up every few hours.
  • You’ve taken medication every day for years—for pain, heart disease, psychiatric issues, or even allergies—and you worry about the long term side effects.
  • Your body just doesn’t feel good most of the time. You have recurring pains and strains, which limit the active life you want, and you have trouble losing weight or regulating your digestive system. You’ve had surgery, and the doctors said you should have felt better weeks ago, but you’re still waiting for your body to “bounce back.”You’ve suffered from chronic autoimmune disorders, with no answers from doctors. They’ve given up, and you wonder if there really is any hope for you returning to normal health.
  • Even if your doctor has no “diagnosis,” you just feel off.
  • You’re going through a major life transition—pregnancy, postpartum, menopause, a job change, retirement—and you feel physically and emotionally run-down.

You’re not stuck with the health you have!

Acupuncture, Chinese Medicine and an Integrative approach can help to restore your health.

Your body’s systems are complex and interrelated. An imbalance in one system can cause a ripple effect of health issues throughout your body that can severely deflate the quality of your life.

Your body operates as one, unified system. Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Integrative Medicine treats your body as a whole to find patterns of imbalances and then uses a combination of herbs, nutrition, acupuncture, and modern science to help the body restore itself to a healthy state.

Traditional Chinese Medicine’s “clinical ideal”
—the picture of health we move toward with treatment—

  • You fall asleep easily, stay asleep all night, and wake up feeling refreshed.
  • You have sustained energy throughout the day.
  • You have a Warm Digestion and eat a wide variety of foods with no reactions.
  • You feel good and empowered to have a fun and active lifestyle.
  • You look forward to the future, knowing that you will be able to enjoy life.
  • You experience no chronic pain or discomforts.
  • Your urination is normal, you don’t get up at night to urinate, and you have one healthy bowel movement daily.
  • Your emotions are appropriate to your situations and fluctuate accordingly.
  • If you are a woman, you have regular menstrual cycles, and you generally transition through life changes (such as pregnancy, postpartum and menopause) with ease.
  • If you are a child, you transition through developmental stages with good health.
