Acupuncture & Traditional East Asian Medicine

We specialize in Japanese Style Acupuncture using gentle yet powerful techniques, using the thinnest needles and very shallow needle insertion. Indeed, sometimes we use no needles at all. For those who are very sensitive, including children under 10 years old, we use blunt tools to stimulate points or stroke the surface of the skin.

Much emphasis is focused on pulse diagnosis, palpation of the abdomen, and limbs to identify the root patterns underlying your symptoms. By identifying patterns of tightness, pain, coldness, heat, dampness, dryness, or other findings, we determine which is your weakest system and strengthen it so that it functions better. If your weakest system starts functioning better, all of you will function better and you will heal yourself. Before you leave, you will directly feel some of the changes that have occurred throughout your visit.
