Traditional Five Element Acupuncture is a powerful system of medicine designed to address patients on a body, mind and spirit level. Practiced for over 3000 years in China, the benefit of acupuncture treatment is now clearly recognized and well documented in western medical journals and in medical institutions across the United States. Because of its relatively low cost and its noninvasive nature, acupuncture has become a highly popular form of complementary health care. In this gentle form of medicine, each treatment is designed uniquely to address imbalance as it is specifically experienced by each individual.

Nancy, this experience has made me more aware of myself and my place in the universe


The physical improvements after these sessions have been relief of chronic knee pain from an old injury, an increased peak flow and no exacerbations of asthma for the first time in 2 years. In general felt as though I had a whole body tune up as well as a lightening up of an often too serious mind.


I believe the acupuncture is helping me become stronger in all of the aspects of my life…


Nancy listens and takes the time to understand your needs. She is very compassionate, knowledgeable, and is always full of encouragement. Nancy has a passion for her work, and I look forward to my appointments. Because of Nancy, acupuncture has become a mainstay in my life.

New Website

Welcome to the new website! My niece’s son created it using some of the content from the other site. I love the blue and gray look. So much of acupuncture is about movement, and color inspires a sense of movement that goes along with it’s mood. Summer with its great variety of color and shapes inspires movement in every way. Happy Summer!
