Acupuncture is a 5000 year old complete diagnostic medical system from China that can accurately diagnose, treat and even prevent illness. It is a safe, effective and painless way to treat a wide variety of health conditions and concerns. We all have life energy called QI (chee) flowing through specific pathways or meridians. Sometimes blockages can occur. When this happens we experience symptoms of pain, sickness or more accurately imbalances. Acupuncture is the insertion of pre-sterilized, single-use needles into points along the body that access this Qi and re-establish balance in the individual.
Chinese Herbal Medicine

There are over 350 herbs we choose from to treat a wide variety of symptoms. They are easier for the body to process than western pharmaceuticals.

Nutrition Response Testing
NRT is a non-invasive system of analyzing causes of ill health. When these are corrected through safe, natural, nutritional means, the body can repair itself in order to attain and maintain more optimum health.
Nutrition Response Testing is very precise and scientific. However, if I were to analyze you using Nutrition Response Testing before it was explained to you, you might find it strange, or simply not believable – only because it is probably very different from anything you may have experienced before.
I can understand this because when I first saw this type of work being done, my first reaction was “Hmm, what is this strange stuff?” No one was more skeptical than I was. As a result, I studied Nutrition Response Testing extensively to see if it was for real, and I sure am happy I did, because it has greatly helped me improve my health and the health of many patients. Because of Nutrition Response Testing, we are here and are able to help you improve your health.
If you want to get healthy and stay healthy, it is important that you understand what Nutrition Response Testing is and what our recommendations are based on.
Otherwise, you are less likely to follow through and actually do what you need to do to get well. If you don’t follow through, you won’t get well. And if you are not going to get well, why do it in the first place?
The results we have been having with Nutrition Response Testing are often in the 90% and better range. The only reason we are here is to help you get well. We have no other reason for being here and hopefully you are here for that same reason. That is why I want to make sure you get the correct understanding of what Nutrition Response Testing is right from the start.
Tuina is Chinese Massage and, like Chinese Medicine, it started around 2700B.C. Techniques within the practice of Tuina focus on pressure points located on the body that will have a curative effect on the patient. Tuina is much more specific than general massage in application but the same wonderful relaxing benefits are felt by those who experience this ancient style of bodywork.
