The body is dynamic, vibrant, and interconnected.
Every muscle, bone, organ, and nerve needs
the entire body in order to thrive.
This is the principal on which acupuncture is based.
The power of acupuncture comes from a system of thought, not from the needles. The needles are the tools through which a powerful system of thought is expressed.
Throughout time, people have sought to be healthy and pain-free. Over 1000 years ago, through careful observation, healers in China began to develop a system of health which viewed the body as a vibrant, interconnected whole. This system was developed, refined, and constantly improved into a profound way of understanding the body.
In today's world, where pain and illnesses are often treated as isolated conditions disconnected from the body as whole, acupuncture offers a powerful tool to view the body differently.
Acupuncture needles are incredibly thin, flexible, and surprisingly painless. They are the tools which best bring this underlying system of thought alive in the body. Anytime I work with a new client, I always demonstrate on myself the act of inserting a needle. I explain all techniques I use when working with any client.
