Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine

Initial Consultation and Treatment:

During this session we discuss therapeutic goals and a treatment plan based on medical history and an individualized, holistic diagnosis and receive an introductory treatment. Patients find these initial sessions informative, relaxing and usually experience improvement of their primary issues.

These sessions focus on alleviating symptoms and supporting the body’s natural recovery power.
