Chinese Acupuncturist Today!
Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical practice that has been shown to help address a variety of conditions. During the procedure, thin, solid, metallic needles are used to penetrate the skin at certain acupuncture points; these pins are then activated through gentle, specific movement. The resulting energy flow through your body is believed to help reduce disease and promote overall physical and emotional health. Today, acupuncture therapy is used to address issues such as chronic pain, asthma, carpal tunnel syndrome, and more. Acupuncture has also been thought to help with digestive problems, mental health struggles, and even infertility.

What is Traditional Chinese Medicine?
Chinese medicine (TCM) is a thousands-of-years-old practice that
originated in ancient China. It treats the body and
mind as one with the use of herbal medicines, acupuncture, qigong
and tai chi, thereby preventing and treating health problems.
Mike’s practice merges this ancient view with modern medical
principles. Call our Chinese Acupuncturist today.
How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture therapy works through your nervous system causing your body to heal itself or to restore balance in the way your body functions. One current view of acupuncture is that it accentuates certain feedback mechanisms that alert the nervous system about particular physiological processes. After a certain number of treatments, the nervous system remembers this effect and keeps the body in balance.
