Stress & Emotional Issues
Acupuncture and herbs have been shown to be just as effective as antidepressants without harmful side effects. Stress, insomnia, depression, anxiety, and mood swings, brain fog, low energy, or hyperactivity are all treatable with Chinese medicine. Acupuncture and herbs can help reduce stress and restore emotional balance. Chinese medicine seeks to address the underlying cause rather than putting on a band aid to manifestation of symptoms.
Allergy & Immunity
Allergies are the body's immune system responding to a variety of relatively harmless substances but result in unfortunate symptoms that disrupt daily life. Allergic reactions can manifest in the form of coughing, wheezing and sneezing, itchy or dry eyes, or itching skin, and sometimes asthma. Combining acupuncture and herbal medicine is effective at treating allergy symptoms by getting to the root of the issue: a weakened immune system. Acupuncture can strengthen the immune system, reduce inflammation, reduce nasal congestion, and stop itchy watery eyes or skin. Chinese medicine also addresses what we call external invasions. The symptoms of such look like cold, flu, or respiratory infections. Some studies show that frequent acupuncture treatments actually increase immunity, preventing distress in the first place.
We recommend Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture as the primary treatment for many gastrointestinal conditions, such as constipation, diarrhea, indigestion, acid reflux, gastric pain, bloating, nausea, pain with bowel movement, gastritis, ulcers and more.

Are you uncomfortable in your own skin?? Skin irritations, acne, eczema, psoriasis, fungal infections, excessive sweating, or dryness can be due to different causes. However, in Chinese medicine, the skin is related to the Lungs, nourished by blood/circulation (qi), and effected by internal/external outside conditions like heat/dampness/dryness, and even emotions. If there’s a deficiency in the above, or an excess , skin issues will result. Acupuncture can alleviate symptoms. It can address issues that present as infections, and nourish the skin back to health. Acupuncture may be combined with herbs, or topicals, depending on the condition and cause.
Pain Relief & Migraine/Headaches
Acupuncture stimulates the nervous system, activating specific chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. The chemicals released by the insertion of the needles can break the cycle of chronic pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own system of regulation. Acupuncture has been shown to increase circulation, decrease inflammation, reduce spasms, and alleviate pain. Acupuncture has also been shown to be effective in stubborn pain conditions like trigeminal neuralgia and chronic migraines.
