How acupuncture works...

Acupuncture is Relaxing- People are surprised that acupuncture is relaxing, comfortable, and for most, completely pain free.

Acupuncture is Safe- Acupuncture is one of oldest and safest forms of medicine on the planet. When performed by a trained professional, Acupuncture carries little to no risks or side effects and is a safe compliment to other treatments.
Needle Free Treatment Options- Although most people find that they are very comfortable with acupuncture once they have tried it, some can never get past the idea of needles. We provide several treatment options that allow us to stimulate acupoints without needles. Examples include photonic acupuncture (shining a red light on acupoints), massage, and cupping.
