You can rely on our experienced, well-trained practitioners to provide safe, effective care.
What Is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture stimulates specific points on the body by inserting disposable hair-thin needles through your skin. Because the needles are so fine (less than .2 mm in diameter) and we use special techniques to place them, you won’t feel any pain.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Benefit from the holistic approach of Ping Yao, LicAc, who completed formal training in traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in Beijing as well as fellowships in the United States. TCM treats or prevents health problems using a combination of acupuncture, herbal medicines, diet therapy and mind-body techniques to improve your Qi, or energy flow.

Acupuncture for Cancer Patients
If you’re undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatments for cancer, talk with your doctor about integrating acupuncture into your care plan. Research shows that acupuncture can help ease side effects such as nausea, vomiting, pain, neutropenia (low white blood cell count) and fatigue.
Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture
Slow signs of aging without surgery or chemicals with cosmetic acupuncture. Your licensed acupuncturist will use very thin needles to encourage blood flow and relax facial muscles to soften fine lines and enhance skin tone.
