In Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) there is a concept called Bow and Ben. Bow are your symptoms – which is usually what drives someone to seek us out. Ben is the root cause – an accurate but overused term – which identifies how you ended up in the cycle of sub-health. We treat both the Bow and the Ben to give immediate relief of symptoms, and to reverse the root cause.

It seems that most people seek acupuncture to relieve pain. For good reason, as acupuncture is world-renowned for pain relief. For chronic conditions, start with the 10-week pain program. Includes not only acupuncture, but also stretches to re-balance your frame, information on the connection between inflammation and foods, herbal remedies if needed, and more.

Did you know that most headaches can be eliminated or greatly reduced in a single session?

And of course, mental wellness is just as important as physical health. Stress, anxiety, depression or PTSD, are all easily relieved. Acupuncture has an immediate effect on the nervous system and restores a calm state of mind.
