What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture treats both the pain and dysfunction in the body. Using the energy network traveling just below the surface of the skin which communicates from the exterior to the internal organs and structures of the body, harmony is restored to the circulatory, nervous, muscular, digestive, genitourinary and all other systems of the body. When this vital energy becomes blocked or weakened, an effect in a body system or anatomic location is evident. Stimulation of one or a combination of key “acupoints” on the body may restore harmony to the affected area. The human body’s energy flow courses over twelve meridians or channels that are normally well balanced. If a disruption of energy flow exists, it can alter the entire system, producing pain or symptoms in the body.
“More people have benefited from Acupuncture over the course of history than the combined total of all other healing sciences, both ancient and modern.”
It is Acupuncture's goal to restore normalcy to the body's energy balance by utilizing a combination of Acupoints located on the twelve meridians. This is accomplished by a variety of means, the needles are just one treatment option.
“Acupuncture treatment can reduce labor and recovery times by up to one-half.”
What Can a Patient Expect?
The average treatment plan for acupuncture is 8 to 12 visits.
Decreasing pain, edema, and increasing range of motion, within two to three days in most cases.
Difficult cases can take up to one year of treatment to attain the desired results.

What are Acupuncture Meridians?
Acupuncture meridians are invisible energy pathways in your body that have been used therapeutically for over 5000 years. These meridians conduct life-force energy, or Qi (pronounced “chee”) in and around all the parts of your body. Blockage or interference in these meridian pathways can result in energetic imbalances that may contribute to negative health conditions. The primary goal of acupuncture treatment is to restore energetic balance and proper energy flow to these meridians, thus allowing your body to function normally and return to health naturally

What does my P.I.E. score mean?
Within the P.I.E. chart, each wedge of the circle represents one meridian pathway. Those shown in green are balanced and functioning properly. Colors that do not extend to the edge of the circle identify and classify your meridian energy imbalances.
Your P.I.E. (Personal Integrated Energetics) score includes a complete analysis of all your meridian pathways and reflects the overall health of your meridian energy system. A perfect score of 100 reflects complete balance and unimpeded flow of your Qi energy. A lower score means there are various imbalances that we should address together.
