Millions of patients have enjoyed the benefits of acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. They report the elimination or reduction of pain, an increase in function, and a greater sense of vitality and well-being. 



Maximizing Health  & Relieving Pain

 

Your body is a dynamic environment of interrelating and interconnecting networks. Some of these networks are obvious and other are more subtle. Western science has focused its attention on the obvious networks such as the nervous, circulatory, endocrine and lymphatic systems.


In contrast, Oriental medicine has over the centuries, mapped out the subtle networks  and interrelationships that reveal our bodies to be dynamic cellular ecosystems.


By using a system approach to health care, early Oriental practitioners discovered acupuncture  points. They found that upon stimulating these points a cascade of positive changes occur in the body.


Computer imaging of the brain show dynamic activity concurring in many regions and structure within the brain. This modern research has shown that stimulating an acupuncture point causes an increase in the production of endorphins and simultaneously activates the immune and endocrine system.
