Acupuncture & Psychotherapy for the Mind Body Spirit
Have you heard of acupuncture but never considered it as a viable option? Acupuncture is the oldest continuously practiced medical system in the world and is used by one third of the world’s population as a primary health care system. It is likely that more people have been treated by Chinese medicine throughout history than by any other formalized system of medicine.
This highly effective system of medical care is based on natural laws, which govern the movement of vital life giving energy, both in nature and in the body. This energy, called “chi or qi”, moves through the body in precise channels supporting functions of the body, mind and spirit. When “chi” is moving dis-harmoniously, imbalance begins to surface in the form of specific symptoms. To address the underlying cause of a condition, these symptoms are viewed in relationship to the totality of a person. The gentle insertion of hair thin needles at specific points along the channels of chi energy, help restore harmony. In the presence of this subtle yet profound intervention, symptoms often resolve and patients frequently experience renewed vitality. To learn more about "chi" click here.
This universal symbol is the cornerstone of Chinese medicine. It represents the universal duality of all phenomena; forces are opposite and yet complementary, all things are balancing and rebalancing into a state of perfect harmony. Our bodies are always in a state of balancing and re-balancing. Acupuncture taps into this ancient method of helping the body to restore itself to good health.
“I promise to follow the way of the great physician. I will serve to live in harmony with nature, and teach patients to do the same.”
Excerpt from the Medical Practitioners Oath.
-Sun Si Miao
"The principle of using these fine needles is easy to say but difficult to master. Ordinary skills of acupuncture maintain the physical body; high skills maintain the spirit.... use spirit to reveal spirit…."

“One of the great joys about being a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine is that it teaches us so much about ourselves, and about nature. It brings us closer to nature, closer to real joy in life; and it gives us a sense of purpose. Thus we enrich our own lives by understanding more about our own bodies, minds and spirits.”
