Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine is an effective form of health care that has evolved into a complete and holistic medical system. We use a noninvasive medical system to diagnose. Our physicians will place fine, sterile, single-use needles at specific acupoints of the body. This activates the body’s Qi (life energy) and promotes natural healing by enhancing recuperative power, immunity and physical and emotional health. It also can improve overall function and wellbeing. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems. Qi is the life energy that flows throughout the body. Qi helps to strengthen the body and protect it from illness, pain and disease. Our health is affected when the Qi is not balanced. Qi can become deficient, excessive, move too fast or too slow, go the wrong direction or even be blocked. Any of these will cause a disharmony in the body and create health problems. The use of Chinese medicine can resolve the problem of Qi disharmony as well as help overall health.
