About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a system of health care that features the insertion of extremely-fine, sterile, disposable needles into specific anatomical locations, to achieve therapeutic results.


Acupuncture originated in China thousands of years ago.  Currently, acupuncture is used by millions of people here in the United States.


5 Element Acupuncture applies a patient-centered-causative approach that addresses the whole person, in contrast to the conventional disease-centered approach that focuses on symptoms. 


5 Element Acupuncture facilitates healing and promotes an enduring state of wellness.


Ultimately, the goal of this dynamic health care system is to activate and optimize the self-healing abilities of the individual.  Acupuncture can also strengthen and support the body to prevent future illness, injury and disease.


Acupuncture is an incredibly effective, safe and natural way to achieve and maintain optimal health.
