Acupuncture, a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine, is a 2,200 year old treatment strategy created to promote balance in the body. This ancient form of medicine places a focus on patterns of symptoms and their effects, rather than specific diseases and their causes. Acupuncture is administered primarily on the meridians of the body – which Eastern Medicine describes as channels in where ‘qi’, or ‘energy’, flows. Our goal is to identify patterns in the body and how they may be causing symptoms. With this information, we create a unique treatment plan to promote healing and balance.
