Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been practiced in China for over 5,000 years using a combination of both Acupuncture and Herbal. Its effective diagnostic tools & treatments are based on centuries of documented clinical observation of patients and diseases. TCM uses a variety of modalities such as: Acupuncture, Chinese Herbs, Tui-na(Chinese massage), Cupping, Heat therapy, Moxabustion and Auricular Therapy, etc. During your visit, one or more of these treatments may be performed on you. Chinese Medicine views the person in its totality: Mind, Body & Spirit. The body is a dynamic interrelated system driven by Qi (life force energy) and your health is dependant on the free-flowing Qi. Chinese Medicine is a very effective and safe form of Health Care that has evolved into a complete holistic medical system and at its core is Acupuncture and Herbalogy.

How does Acupuncture work?
From a Western medicine perspective, research has shown that the body releases endorphins (the body’s natural painkillers) in response to acupuncture. Furthermore, it can be viewed that acupuncture causes a localized response. The body recognizes the needle as a foreign object which mediates a cascade of biochemical responses. The end result is an increase in the circulation of blood and oxygen and the removal of waste products. More recent studies have shown that acupuncture point stimulation can cause electrical activity in associated centers of the brain.
From a Chinese Medicine point of view, diseases/symptoms are formed when our body and/or mind are out of balance. Qi (energy) and Xue (blood) flows in a series of pathways in the body. By inserting needles into specific points on these pathways, it promotes natural healing and enhances the immune system. These positive results will reflect on both your physical and emotional health.
What are the benefits of Acupuncture?
Reducing Pain. The body after being inserted with needles can produce Morphon like neuro-chemical matter, called endorphin which is an analgesic matter that reduces pain without the side effects of cortisone injections.
Reducing spasm. Relieves and soothes the muscles and allows the organs to relax, so you can treat diseases like fibromyalgia, asthma, abdominal cramps, etc...
Reducing Inflammation. Could treat either bacterial/viral infection like flu or aseptic infection like bursitis or tendonitis, etc.
Reducing histamine. Could reduce the IgE level from the blood serum and so, your allergy symptom like allergic sinusitis or allergic dermatitis could improve.
Increasing your immune system, can be seen in T cell counts, PHA test, and IgG, IgM, IgA and CH 50 tests.
Increasing the serotonin level in your brain which is the nature neurochemical transmitters could make your mood change like anxiety, depression.
Does Acupuncture hurt?
Chinese Acupuncture is bu tong, painless. Since acupuncture needles are very thin, insertion is practically painless. Sensation may vary from feeling no pain to a small pinch. It is not the aim of the Physician to invoke pain or discomfort to the patient, but just the opposite.
What can I expect during a visit?
During your initial visit, you will be asked complete a health history questionnaire. This is followed by a consultation, with the Acupuncture Physician to discuss your symptoms, overall health, life style, physical exam, etc. A *diagnosis (TCM) is made and a treatment plan, which may include acupuncture and/or herbs, nutrition, etc are explained to the patient. Based on the diagnosis, needles are inserted in very specific locations and are removed approximately 20 minutes later. The initial visit is usually an hour to an hour and a half and subsequent visits usually last between 45 min to an hour.
How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments will vary from person to person. Some patients experience immediate or gradual relief, while others with chronic conditions (existing for 3 months or longer) may take several treatments to experience significant results. On the average, patients begin feeling some relief after the 2nd to 4th treatment and more lasting relief is achieved with subsequent treatments (incremental). Treatment frequency depends on a variety of factors: duration of the problem(s), severity, the patient’s constitution and amount of Qi (energy). I may suggest one to two treatments per week and eventually less frequent visit as the healthcare goals are achieved. The ultimate goal, of course, is to achieve the “maintenance” stage where little support is needed regardless of your condition, my goal and intension is to bring forth lasting wellness to you.
How effective is Acupuncture for treating pain?

What if I am currently under a physician care (MD)?
