Acupuncture is a great way to manage your physical, mental, and emotional symptoms.


Modern neurologists are coming to understand that the body acts as the unconscious for the mind. Physical discomfort and disease can reflect mental traumas – and mental traumas can be treated with physical interventions, such as medications and acupuncture.


Emotions do not just occur in the mind, they reflect changes in the body’s chemistry and can result in physical sensations.


Acupuncture is an ancient medicine that treats conditions in the mind and body simultaneously. The original metaphor was that it treats the body’s “qi” (or energy), which flows through specific pathways and points through the body. Western science has confirmed the therapeutic value of acupuncture and assigned this effect to other physiological triggers.


Acupuncture is safe, natural, and comfortable. Most people find it relaxing and helpful on a holistic level for all of their physical and emotional symptoms.


The World Health Organization (WHO) has endorsed acupuncture for treating more than 40 conditions, including addictions, allergies, depression, digestive disorders, headaches, menstrual disorders, sleeping problems, pain, and stress. Along with these physical and mental issues, the system of traditional acupuncture is widely recognized as treating the spirit, which can also be interpreted as deep emotional energies and motivations.
