About the Clinic

Relaxing Acupuncture Clinic offering affordable health care. Acupuncture is a process so it is rare that a problem will be resolved in just one visit. In China, where community acupuncture is common, it is not unusual to have regular treatments for many months for a chronic condition or daily for something acute. I strive to make treatments affordable so patients will continue with care through the entire process allowing you to get better and stay better.

I treat general conditions such as pain syndromes, acute and chronic conditions. For those who are interested in 'speeding the process' I am certified in acupuncture injection therapy using vitamins, homeopathics and herbs. I also offer 10 week facial rejuvenation and weight loss packages that include an entire program.

Acupuncture treatments provided in a comfortable and relaxing community style setting. In addition to acupuncture I also offer weekly Qigong (Chinese yoga) classes at the clinic. Call the clinic for times available.
