Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine

Did you know that acupuncturists are recognized as Primary Care Physicians and hold the title of  "Doctor" in some states?  In addition, all acupuncturist have Master's Degrees, and have undergone extensive clinical and classroom education, which in most cases takes four years to complete.  

Chinese Medicine, which includes Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine and Lifestyle Instruction, is a sophisticated and complete medical system that uses the principles of holistic balance and harmony that are observed in nature. Seeing the body as an integrated whole, the acupuncturist addresses the root cause of imbalance leading to a more longterm, sustainable state of health.


Acupuncture stimulates Qi, which is translated as "vital force," and is simply movement.  Without this movement the structure of the body would not have function, and thus would not have life.  The better your Qi moves, the more alive and healthy you feel.  Acupuncture gets your Qi flowing, resulting in better health, resolution of dis-ease patterns and an increased feeling of aliveness.
