Weight Loss

Acupuncture puts your body in the best position to lose weight efficiently by:

  • curbing cravings
  • boosting metabolism
  • improving digestion
  • balancing hormones


Acupuncture can treat symptoms attributed to diabetes such as excessive hunger and/or thirst, frequent urination, fatigue, blurry vision, or slow-to-heal cuts or wounds. A treatment plan is determined and specific points are selected based on the patient’s medical history and presenting symptoms. Acupuncture works uniquely with each diabetes case, and can work to improve insulin resistance or target the pancreas to aid with insulin production, as well as assist with hormone balance and blood sugar management.

Chemotherapy Side-Effects

Research has shown that acupuncture can target certain neurotransmitters in the brain and spinal cord to reduce cancer-related symptoms and side effects of chemotherapy, including nausea and vomiting, lack of appetite, fatigue, pain, and anxiety. Once the practitioner acquires essential knowledge regarding the patient’s mental and physical well-being, condition, and cancer treatment and medications, a treatment plan will be determined based on the assessment and patients’ needs. Acupuncture needles are inserted throughout the body to open certain channels and restore the body’s natural flow of Qi, release serotonin and endorphins to relieve pain and anxiety, and target nerves to reduce other symptoms contributed by cancer.

Acupuncture has been shown to significantly reduce chemotherapy side-effects, such as:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • pain
  • poor sleep quality
  • anxiety


Acupuncture can treat insomnia by selecting certain points that help reset the body’s internal clock and promote a balanced sleep schedule, while also treating other symptoms leading to or related to sleep disturbances, such as: stress and anxiety, PTSD, pain, certain medical conditions or diagnoses, or lifestyle influences such as working late shifts, caffeine or nicotine consumption, eating late, or going to sleep late.

Pediatric Conditions

Acupuncture is a great treatment option to consider for children experiencing ADD/ADHD as well as other emotional disturbances, including but not limited to fear, anxiety, anger, and depression.  The acupuncturist will do a thorough consultation to determine the underlying root and assess a treatment protocol based on the presenting symptoms. Specific points are then selected to clear blockages and restore the mind and body, which work to improve focus and attention, regulate mood swings, reduce fidgeting and hyperactivity, aid in other presenting symptoms such as lack of appetite, low energy or insomnia, or bed wetting.
