Acupuncture is the anchor of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and is a complete medical system to treat ailments, promote health, & prevent disease. It involves the placement of fine sterile needles into specific points on the body to activate Qi (a term used to represent the collective biological activity in your body). This stimulates your body's internal mechanisms to heal disease, restore balance, and promote health. 

We are thrilled to partner with AcuBalance: Acupuncture & Integrative Medicine to offer a wide variety of acupuncture and body therapies. We can treat nearly any condition you would go to a primary care physician for - from chronic pain & inflammatory conditions to hormonal imbalances & emotional imbalances. As part of your visit, our providers may customize your session with the following body therapies: cupping, Gua Sha (fascial scraping), acupuncture with electrical stimulation (similar to a TENS unit), and/or acupressure & Tui Na.

Tai Chi is described by the Harvard Medical School as "medication in motion," due to its many health and well-being benefits for individuals of all ages and abilities. Tai Chi is a low-impact physical and mental practice that consists of slow, circular movements. Meant to be practiced regularly to receive its full benefits, Tai Chi can be easily adapted to meet your unique mobility and fitness needs. Regular Tai Chi practice has been shown to improve balance, cognitive functioning, blood pressure, and even alleviate arthritic pain. Its mental health benefits include stress reduction and improved concentration. 



Establishing a regular yoga practice can have significant mind and body benefits that help us feel balanced and strong. A regular and diverse yoga practice can build strength, muscle tone, flexibility, aerobic fitness, and balance - all areas that are critical to maintaining our functioning as we age. Additionally, yoga has the ability to reduce chronic pain and inflammation. In terms of its mental benefits, yoga has also been shown to improve our cognitive abilities while reducing stress, anxiety, and even depression.
