Chinese medicine–a health care system used and proven for over 3,000 years.

Chinese medicine is an ancient and comprehensive system of healing that uses acupuncture, Chinese herbs, dietary advice, and specific exercise. Chinese medicine considers health a balanced state of being that relates to both our physical and emotional well-being. Chinese diagnosis evaluates particular dis-harmonies of energy systems in our bodies. There are specific pathways through which energy flows in our bodies, and these pathways relate to certain organ systems. Acupuncture is a means for stimulating and altering the flow of energy through these pathways. Needles, physical pressure, or heat may be used to stimulate the acupuncture points. Treatments are not painful, and many people find them very relaxing. Most insurance plans  cover our acupuncture treatments.

Arthritis and Knee Pain

Acupuncture can be a very effective treatment for osteoarthritis of both the knees and hips. A study done in 2004 and reported in the Annals of Internal Medicine  documented the effectiveness of acupuncture for knee pain associated with osteoarthritis of the knees.

I have been treating people for pain in both the knees, hips, and the spine associated with arthritis since 1987 with very good success.

If you are experiencing pain from arthritis, please call and schedule an appointment for an acupuncture treatment. There are also nutritional combinations of glucosamine sulfate, chondroitin sulfate, boswellia and MSM that can help to protect cartilage and reduce pain and inflammation.
