"Rachel is a great acupuncturist. It seems to me that she is always learning and eager to support her patients. She cares about her patients so much. I have been dealing with a terrible pain for years after a fall I experienced four years ago. With her knowledge, care and professionalism I was able to get much better. I am very thankful for her support. Thanks to her I am able to have a more normal life."

The Many Benefits of Acupuncture Include:

Mental & Physical Relief

Most people experience quick pain relief. Many also find it improves their mood. Patients have described their feeling after treatment as calm, relaxed, euphoric, and on top of the world.

Increased Energy

Freedom From Medication Side Effects

Unlike opioid painkillers, acupuncture doesn't cause constipation; in fact, it can gently and effectively relieve constipation.

Medication Reduction

With reduced pain and stress comes a reduced need for medication. Communicating with both your doctor and your acupuncturist as you go through this process is important.

Healthy Aging

Taking care of your body and mind is especially important as you approach middle age and beyond. We offer lifestyle and dietary advice, along with acupuncture and herbal tonics, to help you feel as good as possible for as long as possible.

Natural Treatment, Real Results

Acupuncture stimulates your own healing power. And you don't even have to believe in it for it to work.
