My introduction to Oriental Medicine was as a patient. I experienced the healing nature of Chinese Medicine and I now desire to share that with other needful individuals.

At the Acupuncture & Chinese Medical Clinic our first and foremost concern is your personal well being. The diagnosis first begins with observation of you as a person. We then evaluate other indicators of your health including our discussion with you about your health problems. We take the time to listen to YOU and your concerns.

Traditional Chinese Medicine has been around for over 5,000 years and it looks at the "Whole Body" and we treat the "Whole Person". Our entire staff is trained to become familiar with you as a person and your health concerns. The clinic atmosphere is very relaxed and the soft music in the treatment rooms is soothing and calming. Our goal is to "aid the body to heal itself."
