We believe that acupuncture is a powerful tool for individuals to access their healing power within, enabling the body to relieve pain and promote wellbeing. Our individually customized treatments focus on what is most important to you, help you reach your goals, and get you back to your healthy self. 


By activating your inner healing power and treating the roots of any health disorder, we aim to promote your long-term well-being. Our special interests include musculo-skeletal disorders, internal problems such as respiratory, digestive, and gynecological conditions, fertility, anxiety and depression, pediatrics, and cancer treatment support.
