Pain is a very common problem caused by a variety of reasons. Acupuncture treatment for pain is varied and based largely on what is causing the suffering. Sometimes pain is caused by an old injury that was never fully healed, an acute injury, stress, repetitive motion, sports-related activities, or sometimes it occurs without any known reason at all. It is our job to figure out why you are in pain in the first place, and come up with a comprehensive treatment plan to best manage your pain.


digesetive symptomsWeight Gain, Loss, or Other Digestive Disorders?

Do you suffer from heartburn, gas, bloating, constipation or diarrhea? Digestive irregularities can restrict normal daily activities and even interfere with quality of life.

Have you ever been diagnosed with Irritable Bowel Syndrome or some other digestive disorder, and tried different treatments only to become discouraged at getting temporary relief at best?

Pharmacy shelves are lined with products that may provide temporary relief, but they do not address the underlying cause that creates these symptoms. If your digestive system is not working properly, many other areas of your body can be affected. By helping aid your digestion and metabolism, many patients notice a significant change with their weight through acupuncture treatment.


Depression, Irritability, or Anxiety?depression

Don’t let yourself become another statistic.

Depression and anxiety can manifest in a number of ways. In Oriental Medicine, we don’t only look at the symptoms you are experiencing, but at the cause of those symptoms. Months, years, and sometimes decades, of stress can affect your ability to function normally.

We look at the body as a whole to help regulate brain chemistry naturally. In many cases, acupuncture and herbs have helped decrease the need for medication.

You shouldn’t have to fight so hard just to make it through another day. Our holistic approach will often include the use of acupuncture, herbs, and nutritional therapy.
