Acupuncture is a Western term for what the Chinese call "needling therapy". Originally acupuncture began with the use of fine arrowheads or stone slivers called "bian" for bloodletting purposes. Acupuncture involving the insertion of fine metal needles was impossible until the development of metal needles, around 800 BCE. This makes acupuncture as we know it today roughly a 3000 year old practice. In fact very little has changed since its inception. 

Extremely fine acupuncture needles are inserted into acupuncture points in various parts of the body. These acupuncture points are now understood to be neurovascular junctures or nodes. By stimulating tissue associated with various nodal sites, the acupuncturist is able to regulate a host of functional activities of the body. 

Acupuncture adds nothing to the body, as its effects stem from its ability to restore functional balance and blood flow. Acupuncture promotes the circulation blood to various organs or tissues of the body. Blood has a tremendous potential to heal because it transports oxygen (qi), nutrients (ying), immune substances (wei), anti-inflammatory substances, and pain killing substances called endorphins and enkephalins. All of this together creates an extremely powerful tool to heal a wide host of health concerns. 

Acupuncture needles, or filiform needles are very thin stainless steel needles which come pre-sterilized for one time use only. All needles are disposed of in a sharps container after use. Acupuncture needles are so fine that they can actually fit inside a needle used to draw blood.

According the World Health Organization the following conditions can be effectively treated with acupuncture. This list is not exhaustive, but certainly allows an individual seeking acupuncture treatment to see that a large variety of diseases and ailments are treated effectively with acupuncture.

neck pain

Herbal formulas include medicinal substances such as plants, roots, tubers, stalks, flowers, and leaves. Of the many thousand different plant materials available, only hundreds are commonly used as herbal medicine, along with mineral and animal products as well. 

According to the theory of Chinese herbal medicine, each herb has a particular flavor and temperature. This temperature does not correlate with the actual temperature of the food, but rather to how the herb affects the person when consumed. The main pharmacological effects of the herbs are based on their temperature, while the physiological effects are based on their flavor.  

Herbal remedies can consist of a single ingredient or multiple ingredients can be used to make a formula.  The job of the herbalist is to form diagnoses based on a full examination of the patient, and prescribe the correct herbal formula to heal the patient. Herbal medicine comes in a variety of forms today, from raw herbs requiring decoction, to concentrated granules, pills, and tinctures. As well herbal medicine can be applied externally, typically for external conditions such as pain, laceration, or a variety of dermatological conditions. If used externally, herbs come in the form of compresses, plasters, poultices, liniments, creams, pastes, and soaks. 

It is clear that certain conditions require Western pharmaceutical treatments, yet there are a vast amount of conditions better suited to the milder more balanced approach of herbal medicine.

The following is a short list of conditions we treat using herbal medicine: 

  • Menopause
  • Pain/Trauma
  • Cold and Flu
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Digestive Disorders
  • Addictions
  • Infertility
  • Gynecological Disorders
  • and more.... 


Cupping is a technique involving the use of suction cups placed on different parts of the body. A cup is heated with fire and swiftly applied to the skin of the patient, once the air cools in the cup, a vacuum effect is created and major tissue expansion occurs. The tissue expansion allows for significant increase in blood flow to the area, making it effective for painful restricted conditions, as well as stretching the fascia around the tissue. As well, cupping stimulates the immune system making it effective in the treatment of colds and flus.

I know there is so much controversy between chiropractic and medical care, but if it were not for chiropractic I would still be in pain. A car accident left me with constant lower back pain. I tried everything from painkillers to preparing to have surgery. I heard stories from my friends who had surgery and to this day wish they never had it. So I decided to go to a chiropractor before the surgery and I am so thankful that I did. My back pains are gone and I am living my life to the fullest and pain free.
