Safe. Painless. Effective.

Acupuncture is a form of healing therapy that stimulates points on the body to activate and replenish the bodies ability to rebalance & restore itself naturally. Disruptions to the bodies flow of energy, or "qi" can cause a disrupton to your physical, emotional and mental well being.  Acupuncture allows Qi to flow toward areas where it is deficient and away from areas where it is in excess, thus restoring balance, which promotes general health and resistance to disease.
