Aloha E Komo Mai ~ Hello and Welcome!
Traditional Chinese medicine has been used for at least 3,000 years to restore, promote, or maintain good health. Acupuncture is one of the most well known modalities used within Chinese medicine. Acupuncture points are stimulated with ultra fine, sterilized needles, to balance out the body’s own natural energy. Acupuncture is used to treat a wide variety of health concerns including: musculoskeletal/pain disorders, enhancing the immune system, body detoxification, emotional imbalances, digestive problems, gynecology and infertility issues, headaches/migraines, stress, insomnia, facial rejuvenation, weight loss and general health maintenance.
