What is Acupuncture?

Several thousand years ago, East Asian practitioners discovered that the body forms disharmonies as a result of the various physical and mental stresses of life. Oriental medical theory explains these disharmonies as an imbalance of opposing forces called yin and yang. This imbalance disrupts the movement of the body's vital energy (qi) along the meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body's energy is thought to flow. Acupuncture restores the smooth flow of qi. By inserting and manipulating hair-thin needles at specific points, I am able to return the body to its natural balance and promote the body's ability to heal itself.

Acupuncture returns the body to its
natural state of balance and harmony.

Is Acupuncture Safe?

Yes. Acupuncture is used by millions of Americans every year. Acupuncturists are required to undergo extensive education, including detailed study of human anatomy and training in Clean Needle Technique.  I have passed comprehensive national board examinations administered by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and am licensed by the state.  As required by law, I use pre-sterilized, disposable, single-use needles to ensure your complete safety.

What Modality of Wai Acupuncture use ?

Wai Acupuncture uses modality of Community Acupuncture. In this setting, patients receive their treatment on reclining chairs, sharing a clean and calm environment.  Distal needling is used in this setting.  The points on the arms and legs can be used to access all corners of the body.  Please dress shorts or loose-fitting pants and a t-shirt to receive a complete acupuncture treatment.

What are the advantages of Community Acupuncture ?

Community Acupuncture is more affordable.  It allows a larger proportion of patients access to healthcare and continuity to their course of treatment. The effects of it are also many folds.  Depending on individual condition, it may take anywhere from 4 to 12 sessions to make lasting changes in a person's physiology.  Acupuncture works like regular exercise and proper nutrition, in a cumulative, steady and lasting way.  It improves circulation and vitality.
