FAQs

What is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)?

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a comprehensive medical system that has diagnosed, treated, and prevented illness for over twenty-three centuries.  Chinese medicine treats most internal medical syndromes, including gynecological, digestive, neuromuscular, autoimmune, and chronic health problems.  Acu-Choice uses a combination of acupuncture, herbs, nutrition, and massage therapy to help you heal faster, with lasting relief.

What is acupuncture?

Acupuncture involves inserting thin, sterile needles into specific points along the skin to balance the energy, or chi, which flows throughout the body.  When energy is blocked, it can lead to injury or illness.  By freeing up the flow of energy, the body is better able to heal.

Do you treat children with needles?

Yes, we are a family and child-friendly practice that uses pain-free needle and non-needle techniques.
