Traditional Chinese Medicine is an ancient healing art and medicine that encompasses multiple modalities of treatment. Acupuncture is usually the most well known. This comprehensive medical system is still used safely and effectively today with no side effects. Treatments strive to rebalance the body's vital energy (Qi) to allow the body to heal itself; in other words, it boosts the immune system. Any abnormal condition or malady is the body’s warning that something is out of internal balance. Once the root cause is determined, your acupuncture treatments are guided by the symptoms from your body’s internal imbalance. The process of rebalancing can take as little as a few sessions, but in many cases, it will require a greater number of treatments to return the body to homeostasis.  The body will guide the treatment plan and let your Acupuncturist know when it’s time to spread out your visits.  As your health begins to improve, the maintenance phase will keep the your internal energy balanced.  Balanced energy is the best way to keep the body functioning optimally and prevent future conditions from developing.
