acupuncture needling

Distal needling is when needles are inserted at a distant site to the area of pain or concern. This area is a carefully chosen site to stimulate the brain and activate a healing response.

Local needling involves inserting needles near or into the site of pain to reduce muscle tension and improve blood flow.

acupuncture journey

Acupuncture is a journey that treats the whole body from head to toe.

Each acupuncture treatment builds on the one before it.

Acupuncture is cumulative, with the best results acquired by allowing your body the necessary time needed to heal.

acupuncture healing

Healing takes time, whether physically, mentally or emotionally. This often involves retraining the mind and body through a personalized treatment plan.

The goal of acupuncture is to maintain your health by treating both the root of the issue and symptoms simultaneously.


Our licensed acupuncturists meet with each patient prior to their first treatment to ensure they are a suitable candidate for acupuncture, but most men and women looking for a natural approach to overall wellness are candidates for acupuncture. Those who are not eligible for acupuncture include those with hemophilia or contagious skin diseases. We take special precautions when working with those on blood-thinning medication or tend to bruise easily.


Even though acupuncture has been around for centuries, it’s a new territory for many. Demystifying acupuncture and helping people understand that not only does it work, but it treats the whole person. Side effects are minimal but may include fatigue, slight bruising, tenderness at needle site, lightheadedness, temporary worsening of symptoms, and emotional release. It is best to consult with your acupuncturist on what you can expect from your personalized treatment plan.

We are revolutionizing the way we pursue pain, stress and skin health treatments.
