East West Acupuncture
Harmony of the body-mind and spirit is the goal of East West Acupuncture Clinic. Whether it’s using acupuncture to move stagnation in the body and thus relive pain, Chinese Herb’s to build energy or Tui Na Massage to loosen tight muscles, the goal is the same: to allow the body to heal itself. At East West we treat the underlying causes of the disease rather than just treating the symptoms, combining an experienced and gentle technique along with disposable, sterile needles. Emphasis is placed on understanding and treating the underlying cause of each individual’s imbalance.
For more than 3000 years many cultures have benefited from this method of treating and preventing diseases. Today Oriental Medicine is recognized world-wide. The World Health Organization recognizes over 43 conditions that can be treated with Acupuncture.
