Chinese medicine is an ancient and comprehensive system of healing that uses acupuncture, Chinese herbs, dietary advice, and specific exercise. Chinese medicine considers health a balanced state of being that relates to both our physical and emotional well-being. Chinese diagnosis evaluates particular dis-harmonies of energy systems in our bodies. There are specific pathways through which energy flows in our bodies, and these pathways relate to certain organ systems. Acupuncture is a means for stimulating and altering the flow of energy through these pathways. Needles, physical pressure, or heat may be used to stimulate the acupuncture points. Treatments are not painful, and many people find them very relaxing. Most insurance plans  cover our acupuncture treatments.
