Acupuncture has been a part of Chinese medicine for over 2,000 years. We use super thin, sterile, single-use needles that are inserted into acupuncture points in various parts of the body. Chinese medicine - with the use of acupuncture, herbs, and lifestyle - can treat a wide range of health challenges, including pain, inflammation, high blood pressure, stress, anxiety, depression, digestive disorders, insomnia, fatigue, women’s health, including pms, irregular menses, supporting pregnancy, infertility, menopause, and other health issues.
