A millennia of Chinese medicinal wisdom describes the human heart as the organ that physically pulses us forward and energetically allows to connect with those around us. Equally important, is our ability to connect to ourselves.

Our bodies are in constant conversations with us. Sometimes subtle, sometimes awakening, the body always invites us to be in harmony and balance. Intuitively, we may know this language well, but sometimes that conversation can get lost amidst the many things that demand our attention throughout the day. Chinese Medicine offers us a clear path towards interpreting the body’s unwavering desire for you to live in optimum health. You deserve your health, and with it, a confidence in your own longevity. Hear your heart, heart your health.

Acupuncture is the insertion of ultra-thin, sterile needles into specific acupuncture points on the body which correspond to channels or meridians. Acupuncture helps maintain overall balance of qi (vital energy) and blood. Acupuncture is a complete form of holistic health care for medical prevention and treatment. Traditional Chinese Medicine is a noninvasive treatment method and promotes natural healing. It can enhance the immune system and recuperative power, support physical, mental, emotional health and overall wellbeing. It is safe and painless.
