Personalized Care" is my practice motto. Balancing yin and yang in harmony is the key factor for maintaining health in Oriental Medicine. Acupuncture promotes well- balanced Qi (energy) flow to relieve pain and to strengthen the overall body function. Most acupuncture points are considered as "Communication Centers" as they are higher in surface electric conductivity to direct the body's net-working communication signals.
