Most of patients state that they feel stress free and calm after acupuncture.

Other Benefits of Acupuncture:

1. Improved Health and Quality of Life

Our lifestyles, thought patterns and diets create an imbalance in the body (and emotional pain). Acupuncture helps to balance these energy systems through acupuncture points.

2. Stress Reduction

3. Pain Reduction

Helping with chronic and acute pain is one of the most common applications of acupuncture. Arthritis, neck pain, back pain, menstrual pain, carpal tunnel, plantar fasciitis, joint sprains & strains, digestive pain, etc., are very commonly helped by acupuncture. If you experience migraines, clusters and other headaches, you can often find relief immediately while laying on the table. The results can be amazing.

4. Improved and Faster Recovery from Injury, Illness and Surgery

This can be accomplished using acupuncture to increase circulation, reduce inflammation and reduce scarring. Many professional sports teams have staff acupuncturists.

5. Emotional Balance

6. Respiratory Health

This can be very effective for allergies, asthma, sinusitis, and rhinitis. These are conditions that are positively impacted with acupuncture every day.

7. Insomnia Relief

Insomnia and other sleep issues are also very commonly addressed by acupuncture. An acupuncture treatment can easily focus on insomnia and sleep disturbances.

8. Strengthening Your Immune System

This can be accomplished through balancing your body’s energy systems with acupuncture. Stress, illness, environmental toxins, and allergies, are just a few of the causes of a weakened immune system.

9. Premenstrual (PMS) and Menopausal Symptom Relief.


These conditions are very common, of course, and acupuncture is very effective in treating the symptoms associated with them. Headaches, cramping, sleep disturbances, mood swings, night sweats, short/long cycles.

10. Reduction of Side Effects of Chemo and Radiation Therapies

This is a very powerful benefit of acupuncture. Please head to and input “acupuncture” in their search box for much more detailed information including studies that have been conducted showing acupuncture’s effectiveness. The side effects acupuncture can help include, (but are not limited to); coughing, fever, anxiousness, nausea, depression, night sweats, dry mouth, pain, diarrhea, and constipation. Improved quality of life is, without a doubt, experienced by every cancer patient I have treated.

What is Oriental Medicine?

 Oriental Medicine, also known as, Traditional Chinese Medicine, is a comprehensive system of health care, with a continuous clinical history of over 3000 years.  Oriental Medicine combines the use of acupuncture, Chinese herbology, bodywork and dietary therapy.  Doctors of Oriental Medicine often recommend exercise, breathing disciplines, and meditation in the forms of Chi Gung and Tai Chi as part of  an ongoing, holistic wellness program. These therapies work with the natural, vital energy inherent within all living things, to promote the body’s ability to heal itself. 

How does it work?

Oriental Medicine is based on an energetic model, rather than the biochemical model of Western Medicine.  The ancient Chinese recognized a vital energy behind all life forms and life processes.  They called this energy Qi (pronounced chee).  In developing an understanding of the prevention and cure of disease, these healing practitioners discovered that this energy flows along specific “gates,” or pathways called “meridians,” that travel deep into the body.  Each pathway is associated with a particular physiological system and internal organ.  Disease is considered to arise due to a deficiency or imbalance of energy in the meridians and their associated physiological systems.  Acupuncture points are specific locations along the meridians.  Western doctors are discovering medications can suppress or stimulate electrical impulses within the body, but they cannot regulate it in the way in which acupuncture can.

What Can I Expect?

Many conditions may be alleviated very rapidly by acupuncture and Oriental Medicine.  However, some conditions that have arisen over a course of years will be relieved only with slow, steady progress.  As in any form of healing, the patient’s attitude, diet, determination, and lifestyle will affect the outcome of a course of treatment.  Patients are encouraged to actively participate in their healing process.  Although Oriental Medicine can treat most conditions, there are circumstances that can be dealt with more effectively by Western medicine.  In such cases, your acupuncturist will recommend you contact a Western medical doctor.  Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine should be seen as complementary to Western Medicine.

 Is Acupuncture Painful?

 Acupuncture bears no resemblance to the feeling of receiving an injection, since the main source of pain from injections is the larger diameter, hollow needle, and the medications being forced into the tissue by pressure.  Acupuncture needles are very fine and flexible, about the diameter of a human hair.  In most cases, insertion by a skilled practitioner is performed without discomfort.  You may experience a mild initial sensation upon entering, followed by a tingling, numbness, dull ache, or traveling warmth.  Most patients find the treatments very relaxing and may even fall asleep during treatment.
