We do not all experience mood disorders for the same reasons. This is often why certain medications that will help one person might make another feel even worse. In Chinese Medicine our emotional imbalances tend to do mostly with the heart or liver channel, but the stomach and microbiome are invariably involved as well. It is for this reason that people LOVE our ALL NATURAL approaches that have no gastrointestinal side effects, therefore no risk of making the root cause of the issue worse. OUR GOAL is to determine your unique pattern and affected channels and treat them with consistent care, however what distinguishes our practice is our complementary neurological knowledge and approach, as the brain's frontal lobe often requires just as much attention to harmonize through our advanced neuro-modulatory techniques.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt?

Acupuncture needles are the thinnest, most gentle needles in the world. Upon insertion you will most likely feel nothing, after which you may or may not feel a slight pressure point or nerve sensation to initiate the body's natural anti-inflammatory mechanism.

What are the needles doing?

When it comes to anxiety and depression, acupuncture excels at stimulating neurological pathways in a way that sends signals for them to self-regulate and/or properly modulate circulation. 

How long do I have to come to see results?

A standard course of medical treatment for chronic conditions is 12 visits over the course of 2 months. HOWEVER, you may see results as early as the very first week of treatment and absolutely should experience some progress during the first month.

Have you cured this before?

Of course. Every case is different, so there is never any guarantee of results, but this area is one of our specialties in which we've seen consistent improvement as well as full resolutions from consistent acupuncture. 

Will I be on a lot of supplements forever?

No. With herbal medicine we try to use the bare minimum to elicit maximum results and do not expect or desire for patients to be reliant on them in perpetuity. The purpose of our supplements is to help reduce inflammation and or regulate neurology to the point that the body no longer needs them.

Are these treatments safe?

Definitely. Acupuncture is considered to be one of the safest modalities in existence, with at worst the very occasional, mild soreness or bruise at the site of a point. As for herbal medicine, although it is BASED ON an ancient Chinese pharmacopeia, the products we actually USE & PRESCRIBE are harvested here in the U.S., mostly in California, Oregon, or upstate New York
