Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine, in which extremely thin needles are inserted into the body, to stimulate circulation and move Qi (our life force).

When we injure ourselves – whether physically or emotionally, traces of that injury persist after healing. These traces can be in the form of knotted muscles, anxiety, insomnia, stiff joints, or any other forms of chronic injury. By using acupuncture needles and other techniques, we are able to free up these blockages, untie the knots. As a practitioner and patient, the ultimate goal is to get the body as balanced as it can be.
