Five Element Acupuncture

Understanding Ancient Wisdom can lead us to a better understanding of health and wellness in modern times. Chinese Acupuncture is a 5000 year old medical tradition that brings balance to the systems of the body, mind, and spirit. After a systematic diagnosis, Chinese Acupuncture uses needles, prescribed herbs, and heat to help bring the mind, body, and spirit into a state of balance. With proper treatment, stress is reduced, the immune system is boosted, and healing more naturally occurs. Chinese Medicine can provide lasting relief from stress, fatigue, inflammation such as arthritis, chronic pain, nausea, allergies, and other common ailments. Chinese Medicine can aid in recovery from illness, speed the healing process, and bring a person to greater awareness of their mind and body.
