Acupuncture is a gentle and effective way of healing the body naturally. It is based on the theory that a vital energy nourishes the entire body through a network of channels. Acupuncture regulates the flow in these channels allowing the body to heal itself.
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete medical system that has diagnosed, treated, and prevented illness for over twenty-three centuries. Millions of people have found acupuncture to be a better solution than drugs or surgery, successfully addressing chronic ailments and managing pain. Acupuncture has been recognized by the National Institute of Health (NIH) as well as by the World Health Organization (WHO).

As the medical community increasingly recognizes the benefits of acupuncture, more insurance providers and HMO's are covering all or part of the cost of treatments. Health insurance policies vary, and should be reviewed to determine what benefits are provided. If you have insurance that covers Acupuncture the office will bill for you.
