Acupuncture Treatment

Acupuncture is a complete medical system that is used to diagnose and treat illness, prevent disease and improve well-being. It is effective for physical, psychological and emotional problems. Acupuncture originated in China more than 3,000 years ago and, due to its proven effectiveness, has been embraced throughout the world.  The average treatment fee is between $85 to $100. 

We utilizes fine, disposable needles to access the meridian pathways to help restore the normal balance and flow of energy so organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony. After the needles are placed, there is a 15~20 minutes therapeutic time of deep relaxation resulting in relief, restored balance and a renewed outlook. A mild and painless electric current may be used to enhance the stimulation. After removal of the needles, 10-15 minutes therapeutic procedures will be applied to enhance the treatment.



Cupping is a practice in which a cup is applied to the skin and the pressure in the cup is reduced (by using change in heat or by suctioning out air), so that the skin and superficial muscle layer is drawn into and held in the cup.

Cupping is great for muscle tension and spasm in the large open areas of the back where it is easiest to place the cup. Another excellent use of cups is for lung problems, especially coughing, bronchitis and asthma. The suction powerfully helps break up phlegm and congestion.


Chinese Herbs

Chinese herbs are often used in conjunction with acupuncture for added therapeutic effect.    There are thousands of herbs in the Chinese materia medica, of which about 300 are commonly used. You will generally receive a mixture of several different herbs in a formula that has been tailored to your condition.    Chinese herbs are extremely effective and normally have only mild side effects, however it is very important to tell  the doctors about all the medications and supplements you are currently taking so that we can avoid any unwanted interactions with your formula.
