waterfall-elementModern living places a variety of stresses on our bodies that can result in pain or other issues that diminish our experience of well being and vitality. In our practice, we specialize in naturally restoring health through traditional Oriental medicine (acupuncture and herbal therapy), cold laser therapy, body work, and nutritional approaches.

According to traditional Oriental medicine, physical or emotional problems result from blockages in the flow of energy or “qi” in the body. The various techniques we use release these blockages and stimulate the body’s inherent healing capacity in order to treat the root causes of health problems.
