Acupuncture is the best known part of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Our other therapies include herbal formulas, nutrition, and breathing/meditation exercises. We always treat on two levels: primary is your complaint(s), and the other is the eastern energy diagnosis that has thousands of years experience and works effectively. This approach gets the fastest, most complete and most long-lasting results.
