For more than 2,500 years, acupuncture has been a safe, effective, and drug free form of medical treatment. No matter the condition, acupuncture addresses the whole person and aims to restore balance and prevent disease.

Rachelle has received international training in and practice Japanese Meridian Therapy. Key features of this form of acupuncture are:

Diagnostics- based on the channel or meridian system as the foundation for manual assessment and sensitive palpation of the channels along with pulse taking and tongue diagnosis.
Treatments- light and shallow needling that is often combined with direct moxibustion or moxa-needle techniques.
Size of needles- tend to be smaller and finer with gentle insertion or contact techniques that are painless.
Root and branch therapy- restore the channels to balance so that the body will hold the correction, allowing a more lasting effect.
Incorporation of Kampo Herbal Medicine as supplementary care to acupuncture.

Acupuncture works by improving the body’s functions and promoting natural self-healing processes with the gentle insertion of very fine needles into specific acupuncture points that stimulate the distribution and movement of Qi, blood, and fluids along the meridians (channel pathways) of the body. If imbalances or deficiencies along these meridians are not addressed, pain and disease occur.

Anyone can benefit from acupuncture treatment. We accept adult and pediatric patients.
