Welcome, and congratulations for considering a holistic approach to your health care: acupuncture.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a medical system that has been in practice for thousands of years. As a part of TCM, acupuncture is used to treat a broad range of conditions. Firmly grounded in the cycles and rhythms of nature, what sets TCM apart from other forms of medicine is that it seeks to address the underlying cause of illness in order to restore balance to the body, mind and spirit.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into the skin at specific points — called acu-points — which run along the surface of the body. The needles help to restore the body’s energy to its natural state. When the energy is restored, symptoms of disease improve.

Traditional Chinese Medicine also takes into consideration other factors that contribute to disease, such as diet, sleep habits, exercise and stress. New and realistic practices that support good health in the long term are an important part of the treatment process.

To create health, you need a new kind of knowledge, based on a deeper concept of life.
