Acupuncture Therapy for Pain Management and Relief

Acupuncture is a complex branch of ancient Chinese medicine, but its practical principles and methods are easily understood. Acupuncture treats hundreds of symptoms and conditions with positive results. Among the conditions we frequently treat are:


  • Arthritis

  • Asthma

  • Back pain

  • Fatigue

  • Insomnia

  • Indigestion

  • Menopause

  • PMS

  • Stroke

  • Stomach problems​


Among self-regulation techniques, biofeedback training is unique because it teaches you how to control the way your body responds to stress while allowing you to monitor your progress both visually and audibly. You start to see results quickly, which provides you with the motivation to reach your goals.
