Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese medical art dating back over 2500 years. It is based on a system of meridians, or channels, that run throughout the body and carry Qi, or energy. Imbalances in the flow of Qi create pain, dysfunction and disease. Acupuncture involves using small gauge needles to correct imbalances at specific points along the meridians. It is extremely safe when performed by a licensed practitioner, and its efficacy has been demonstrated by a multitude of scientific studies and centuries of empirical evidence. Acupuncture can be used to treat a wide range of disorders from physical injuries and chronic pain to hormonal imbalances and depression.

Many medical conditions can be treated more effectively with foods and nutritional supplements than by other means. We see fewer complications and side effects than conventional medicine by using dietetics, natural hygiene and nutritional supplementation.

Mental attitudes and emotional states can be critical elements in healing illness. NDs are trained in counseling, biofeedback, life-style, and other mind-body techniques.
