Optimizing Health

Acupuncture can be used when you don’t have any diagnosable “disease,” yet you know you don’t feel the best you could be.  Simply put, health is not the absence of disease.

Using acupuncture in this way can bring your body systems back into balance so you can perform optimally.  Beyond that, it can also prevent you from going down a road to the point where your discomfort becomes a full blown disease.  This is why acupuncture is often referred to as “preventative medicine.”

It is the idea of improving your quality of life and not just the quantity.

If you’re ready to start feeling your best, please contact us today to schedule an appointment.

Lizzy’s treatments were both thoughtful and effective. She was always on par with what I needed and she helped me tremendously with my painful periods. Her gentle and sincere manner made her easy to talk to, and her technique was comfortable and always left me feeling great. Wish she still lived on the West Coast!
