“Acupuncture is an alternative medicine methodology originating in ancient China that treats patients by manipulating thin, solid needles which have been inserted into acupuncture points in the skin. According to Traditional Chinese medicine, stimulating these points can correct imbalances in the flow of Qi through channels known as meridians.
“I have found that Stress seems to be the underlining cause for most complaints, be it physical or emotional. When we get tense, our energy doesn't flow well. Over time this tension can cause an imbalance that we experience as pain. The pain is there to let you know something isn't right and to pay attention to your body's message. So, my first goal is to help you relax using acupuncture, massage, and attention to your breathe, then we can figure out how to keep your energy flowing freely, without the pain.

Acupuncture in Oregon (OR) - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Oregon (OR) acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.
Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into a number of trigger points on your body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.
'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
