Embark on Wellness

This ancient art of healing involves the painless insertion of fine, sterile needles into specific points to achieve a therapeutic effect in the treatment of a wide variety of health conditions. Acupuncture works with the natural systems of the body to promote its ability to heal itself and can benefit a wide variety of health issues.

Conditions frequently seen in clinic include pain, joint issues, musculoskeletal injury, migraine, depression, anxiety, insomnia, infertility and women’s health, immune support, digestive health, nausea, cardiovascular disease, addiction recovery, and neurological issues like Parkinson’s or stroke recovery.

A registered acupuncturist undergoes thorough training on the safe implementation of this treatment modality, and typically undergoes at least 2 years of undergraduate education followed by 3-4 years of postgraduate study. Most patients find treatments relaxing, and leave feeling calm and uplifted. While some cases may require an extended course of treatment, often pain relief and other benefits will be felt instantly after a session.
