ACUPUNCTURE

 

Acupuncture is a healing art that has been practiced continuously for thousands of years. 

Our practice is based on the philosophy that each of us is a unique expression of nature with a purpose to fulfill and relationships to maintain. When the body, mind or spirit become out of sync with our true nature, purpose, or relationships, symptoms of pain, depression, anxiety, or other illness usually arise. These symptoms can be interpreted as a calling to realign life.  Health is a balanced expression of body, mind and spirit.  Acupuncture can help restore the body, mind and spirit to its own state of balance and happiness. 

Our successful treatment of patients, often resolving complex and chronic problems, has won us the trust of our patients, valued patient referrals, and  Philadelphia Magazine’s 2009 Best of Philly® award.
