Depending on how complicated your health concerns are, treatment may take just a few visits, a month, or several months. Along with acupuncture treatments, herbs may be prescribed as well.

We only use sterile, disposable needles and/or non-insertion needle techniques.

Loose, comfortable clothing is best as acupuncture therapy involves palpation and treatment of various parts of the body.
