Acupuncture is a safe and effective modality of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Acupuncturists view diseases and health disorders as an imbalance/obstruction of the body's energy, which flows along well defined pathways called meridians. A well trained acupuncturist can determine where the imbalance is through a thorough examination.
The acupuncturist will correct the flow of energy by inserting fine needles at specific points along the meridians. Acupuncture stimulates the body's own natural healing mechanisms to improve functioning of the organs.
Other modalities of Traditional Chinese Medicine may be incorporated into your treatments. These include acupressure, tui na massage, cupping, guasha, dietetic therapy and herbal medicine.

What to Expect
Your initial visit will consist of a comprehensive health interview and examination followed by an acupuncture or massage therapy treatment. The examination will include inspection of the tongue, pulse analysis, and palpation. Your medical history, presenting signs and symptoms, lifestyle and diet will also be reviewed. These are all important factors in developing a diagnosis and determining the best treatment plan for you.
