Health Through Balance
Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are based on an understanding of health through balance. Health is a state of optimal balance, where all of your systems are working as they should.
Symptoms, such as pain or insomnia, are alerts to an imbalance.
To diagnose the imbalance, practitioners look for patterns through observation and by asking questions about the patient’s experience
Treating from the Root
With treatments focused on the root of the imbalance and not just the symptoms or disease, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can treat an enormously wide range of conditions.

Why I Do What I Do:
“I started going to acupuncture for my own sports injuries and was amazed at how much it helped. I remember going to my first appointment at 16, and after that appointment knowing that this is what I needed to do with my life. Treating patients with acupuncture and seeing their symptoms disappear is the best feeling in the world. My injuries were helped tremendously and I want to provide my patients with that same relief. I understand people that are in pain are not just hurting physically, but the emotional side effects and the day-to-day disruptions are also big pieces of this puzzle. Set up an appointment today to start living pain free!”
