I learned about Acupuncture and alternative medicine first hand as a patient. I went through 15 years of not feeling well going to doctor after doctor. Finally, I decided to try the Holistic approach after 3 weeks of herbs, dietary rotation, and acupuncture treatments I felt better than than I had for years. After such an experience I decided there is something to Holistic Health and this will be my path of the future.

What is Acupuncture:
Chinese Medicine is a complete medical system that has diagnosed, treated and prevented illness for over twenty-three centuries. The goal of this dynamic and integrated health care system is to activate the natural, self-healing abilities of the body. While it can remedy ailments and alter states of mind, Chinese medicine can also enhance recuperative power, immunity and the capacity for pleasure, work, and creativity.

Pain and arthritis, PMS, menopause, stress, anxiety, perimenopause, irregular period or cramps, depression headaches and migraines, insomnia, colds and flu, asthma, indigestion, constipation, diarrhea, earaches, dizziness, eczema, herpes, stiff neck, back pain, bursitis, tendonitis, smoking cessation and addictions and many other treatable conditions.

Acupuncture is based on the assumption that Qi courses through channels, or meridians, in the body just as water flows from spring, to stream, to river and to sea. Qi is our energy force for movement, thinking, feeling and work. Thin, solid, sterile stainless steel acupuncture needles are inserted into acupuncture points invigorating Qi.


Cupping is a simple and effective therapeutic technique which has been used at different times in most parts of the world. The function of cupping is to warm, move Qi and move blood in the meridians and muscles. It is used for relief and stress relieving, reducing stiffness, muscle cramps, joint pain and scar tissue.


Auriculotherapy is a microsystem of the entire body that is 2,500 years old. The ear has a very rich blood and nerve supply, which contains both sympathetic and parasympathetic fibers from several spinal segments. Stimulation of specific points on the ear have a therapeutic effect elsewhere in the body. A wide variety of conditions can be treated including digestion, headaches, blood pressure and weight loss.


“You Are What You Eat” The old proverbial saying that has been around since the popular 1960’s hippy days. Over the past several decades, emerging scientific evidence about health and nutrition has resulted in changing food consumption patterns in the US. Nutrition and life style encourages more time and effort be spent on disease prevention instead of waiting to treat disease once it manifests. “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” - Hippocrates!


Moxibustion is a form of heat therapy applied to acupuncture points or certain locations on the body. The material used is mainly “moxa wool” made from the mugwort plant, a species of chrysanthemum, Artemisia vulgaris. This treatment strengthens the activity of the body cells, reduces inflammation, and strengthens the adrenal glands and immune system.


Herbal medicine has powerful healing properties. Western drugs control symptoms but does not affect the whole body. For example: antibiotics eliminate bacteria but does not help the immune system to fight off future infection. Herbs treat the underlying condition and rarely cause side-effects. Herbal medicine is made from whole food supplements that provide nutrients for the body to maintain balance and homeostasis. Herbal remedies are phytotherapeutic and nutritional.
