Acupuncture consists of the gentle insertion and stimulation of thin, disposable, sterile needles at strategic points near the surface of the body in order to promote the circulation of Qi and adjust the imbalance of Yin and Yang. The needles are much finer than the familiar hypodermic needle. After the insertion of the needles, patients may feel the pressure or distention, which means the arrival of Qi, instead of feeling pain. Acupuncture has been proven to stimulate the release of opiate-like hormones and induce a deep state of relaxation, balance and healing.
Chiropractic is a healing art which utilizes a natural and holistic approach to restore normal biomechanics to the spine and extremities. Chiropractors believe in patient care by focusing on a patient's total wellness, or well-being, instead of specific diseases, or ailments. It is this intricate physiological and biochemical interrelationship among various parts of your body-including its spinal, musculoskeletal, neurological, and vascular systems-that chiropractors dedicate themselves to exploring and treating, with special attention to nutrition, exercise, and healthy emotional and environmental relationships. When one or more of these systems is impaired, your body ceases to function normally and your resistance to disease is compromised.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a comprehensive medical system that includes acupuncture, acupressure, herbs, exercise and nutrition. It treats the whole person to maintain and restore energetic balance. TCM is based on a concept of balanced Qi (pronounced "chee"), or vital energy, that is believed to flow throughout the body. Qi is proposed to regulate a person's spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical balance and to be influenced by the opposing forces of Yin and Yang. Disease is proposed to result from the flow of Qi being disrupted and Yin and Yang becoming imbalanced.
TCM is recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and National Institutes of Health (NIH). The 1997 NIH Consensus Conference on Acupuncture stated, "The data in support of acupuncture are as strong as those for many accepted Western medical therapies. One of the advantages of acupuncture is that the incidence of adverse effects is substantially lower than that of many drugs or other medical procedures used for the some conditions." Also in the 2003 Acupuncture Review and Analysis of reports on controlled clinical trials, WHO published a list of over 100 conditions for which acupuncture may be effective. Some conditions include:
Pain conditions: sciatica, low back pain, neck pain, headache, arthritis
Women's health: menstrual problem, menopausal syndrome, fertility
Gastrointestinal disorders: diabetes mellitus, gastritis, irritable bowel syndrome
Respiratory conditions: sinusitis, allergic rhinitis, bronchial asthma
