Using acupuncture, Chinese medicine, massage therapy, herbal medicine, nutrition and lifestyle counseling we treat everything from chronic pain to common colds. We welcome complex and difficult cases where other treatment methods and medicines have not worked. Patients often come to see us because they want to avoid surgery or treatment with pharmaceutical drugs.

What People Are Saying
Acupuncture is the painless insertion of single-use, sterilized, surgical grade needles into specific acupuncture points on the body to alleviate pain and discomfort. James has training in classical Chinese acupuncture, five element acupuncture, Japanese acupuncture, auriculotherapy or ear acupuncture and electro-acupuncture.
Excellent research has been done on acupuncture that will convince the most hardened skeptic that it works. In 2012, The National Institutes of Health (NIH) competed a comprehensive systematic review that concluded acupuncture is effective for chronic pain. It is also worth noting that acupuncture and Chinese medicine are being utilized by millions of Americans and over a billion people all over the world.
