What is Acupuncture?

Several thousand years ago, East Asian practitioners discovered that the body forms disharmonies as a result of the various physical and mental stresses of life. Oriental medical theory explains these disharmonies as an imbalance of opposing forces called yin and yang.

This imbalance disrupts the movement of the body's vital energy (qi) along the meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body's energy flows. Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi enabling the body to rebalance itself and heal. By inserting and manipulating hair-thin needles at specific points, we are able to return the body to its natural balance and promote the body's ability to heal itself.

Acupuncture returns the body to its
natural state of balance and harmony.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

Yes. Acupuncture is used by millions of Americans every year. Acupuncturists are required to undergo extensive education, including detailed study of human anatomy and physiology. We are licensed by the State of California. As required by law, we use pre-sterilized, disposable, single-use needles to ensure your safety.
