Acupuncture is a highly evolved system that utilized very fine and thin, hair-like needles to stimulate the bodies own ability to heal rapidly. It involves little to no pain. It utilizes a complex map of the human body consisting of channels and meridians that make up the point locations that are to be needled.
Needles placed at precise locations promote the body’s own natural healing providing a tremendous amount of relief.
Acupuncture has been used in China and other Asian countries for thousands of years. Originally it was a practice that was reserved only for the elite – the Emperor and the members of his Kingdom. It was renowned for its ability to create longevity and sexual vigor. Hence it’s the ability to extend an athlete’s career or even the life of a CEO under an unbearable amount of stress. Everyone can benefit from Acupuncture. With regard to sexual vigor, it is an excellent adjunct to infertility and a plethora of sexual dysfunctions.
Thanks to the astute wisdom of Ancient Sages … this information was written down and later translated and shared. Gratefully we are able to practice the Emperor’s medicine here in the West!

Are there any side effects from the needles?
There may be slight bruising from the needles or lightheadedness from getting up too quickly, however, most people experience a sense of calm and relaxation once the needles are in place. It is best to come to treatment after a light snack to avoid low blood sugar issues. After your treatment, give your body a moment to adjust. You may feel as if you've just woken up from a much-needed rest.
Strenuous activity before and after acupuncture is not recommended.
How many treatments are needed?
Generally, 6 to 12 treatments are needed to resolve existing health issues. The number of treatments will vary according to your condition. Chronic conditions take longer. We must also take into account your overall health and age with regards to how rapidly your body will heal.
What to wear?
It's best to dress in loose comfortable clothing that will allow easy access from the elbows and knees down. If access to the trunk of the body is needed accommodations can be made.
