Acupuncture, or the insertion of fine wire-like needles into specific places on the body, is one of the oldest therapies known to mankind. The history of acupuncture speaks volumes to its therapeutic efficacy. It is gentle and safe and has no toxic side effects. Most patients experience an immediate sense of deep relaxation on the treatment table and fall asleep.
In Acupuncture theory, disease is due to blockages in the body’s energy circulation, which can give rise to pain, dysfunction, and emotional imbalances. Basically, treatment is aimed at opening these blockages and promoting a natural, smooth circulation of energies in the body. There are many different styles of acupuncture that we practice, some of which do not require any needle insertion at all, like gentle Japanese style techniques.
The conditions that acupuncture can treat are too numerous to list. Some common ailments that respond quickly to acupuncture are headaches, body pain, digestive issues, allergies, emotional stress and fatigue. No matter what condition we are treating patients notice increased energy and a heightened sense of well-being. Let acupuncture be the catalyst for the change that you are seeking. (45-60 minutes)

Children’s energy changes so quickly that we usually use more gentle, subtle techniques with them. There are many methods that can be used, such as magnets, ear pellets, non-insertion acupuncture techniques, massage techniques taught to parents, etc. We have glycerin-based (sweet) pediatric tinctures for many conditions.
