Better health starts here.

Do you suffer from chronic pain or other ailments that conventional medicine and prescription drugs have failed to adequately address? If so, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers natural, safe, and drug free alternatives such as acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine that can often provide relief when other methods have failed.

Did you know that: 

Controlled clinical trials have been done by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO)  demonstrating the effectiveness of acupuncture in treating over 43 common disorders?

Research published in January 2013 shows that acupuncture is effective treating Chemotherapy/Radiation Therapy side effects such as nausea/vomiting, constipation, joint pain, xeropthalmia (dry eyes), xerostomia (dry mouth), and neuropathy?

Both the military and the VA use acupuncture as part of integrative care treatments for conditions such as pain, headaches, dizziness, insomnia, depression and PTSD

Acupuncture for low back pain was found superior to the usual medical treatment of prescription drugs, primary care, and physical therapy? 

I would like to invite you to experience Traditional Chinese Medicine. Why not discover for yourself the benefits of this very gentle yet profoundly powerful ancient holistic healing art and science? TCM has been used for over 2,500 years and is the oldest continuously practiced medical system in the world. Currently almost one fourth of the world's population, including over 10 million Americans, use acupuncture annually. It's a natural, safe, and drug free alternative that works with your body's own innate power to heal.
