Acupuncture takes time and training. Don't let unlicensed or untrained individuals perform needling on you.

Acupuncture is an ancient Traditional Chinese Medicine healing technique that involves stimulating specific points in the body by inserting fine needles. Centuries ago the Chinese determined that inserting needles on specific body points helped restore the smooth flow of “qi”, or energy flow, through the body. In Chinese philosophy, the application of Acupuncture extends beyond pain relief to the treatment of many other health ailments.

Many conditions are successfully treated with Chinese Medicine; these include digestive disorders, anxiety, depression, fatigue, chronic pain, insomnia, weak immunity, infertility, sciatica, PMS, menstrual cramps, menopausal symptoms, allergies, addictions, stress management, and many more. We look forward to helping you stay healthy.

Chinese Herbals

Chinese herbal medicine is a major component of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) which like Acupuncture treatment, focuses on restoring the balance of energy in the body rather than treating a particular disease or medical condition. Herbal formulas and herbal recommendations are used with the intent of restoring the body’s natural energetics.

Many times herbal treatments are used in conjunction with Acupuncture to increase the effectiveness of the treatment plan.

I have been enjoying Acupuncture for many years. It has helped me with sinus problems, muscle pains and now with an essential tremor. I was on neurological medication that made me forget ordinary things and slur my words, but now that I am not having those problems and I have gone off much of my medication.
I recommend Acupuncture for most ailments and Jim is a great practitioner!

Pain level before acupuncture…8-9. Pain level this morning…0. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I was overwhelmed with joy during a very slow short walk because there was zero pain today. I am so grateful.
