What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the insertion of a single or multiple needles into the body to elicit a specific effect. The desired effect and the location of the problem will determine the number and location of needle placement in the body.

Depending on your condition, cupping, gua sha, moxabustion,  Chinese Herbal Medicine, Reiki, Massage, or Thai Bodywork,  may be suggested as part of  your treatment.
