What We Treat:

Acupuncture is an unusual tool for healthcare in that it can have an effect on almost any condition. It seems to work in two ways: by helping the body go into its “rest and repair” state, and by improving circulation throughout the entire body. Because of that, we successfully treat conditions ranging from pain to stress, anxiety to insomnia, chronic illnesses to just catching a cold.

    How are we doing?
  • I cut my finger chopping onions (don’t judge me) and wandered in looking for a band-aide. I was greeted by Demetra, who was unbelievably sweet! She hooked me up with a band-aide and talked to me briefly about acupuncture and I decided to try it! I was pleasantly surprised by the experience, and I would recommended this place to ANYONE! It is VERY reasonably priced and every friend that I’ve brought in loved it as well. Go check it out and see for yourself! I never thought I’d say this, but I’m glad I cut my finger that day because if I didn’t, I probably would have never found out about this place!

I will absolutely go there regularly, we need more community practitioners as giving as them!
