Buddha with flowerWelcome to Family Acupuncture Associates. I am pleased to offer you the highest standard of care in Oriental Medicine, melding the best of Classical 5 Element, modern Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Japanese acupuncture, and now Ayurvedic medicine from India as well.

At Family Acupuncture Associates we have treated people from 8 days to over 80 years, and we dedicate ourselves to treating the whole person, in a gentle and caring environment. Through sensitive listening, pulse taking, and gentle palpation an individual treatment program is crafted which is designed to heal the imbalances which are at the root of the disharmony, or illness.

What to expect

What to expect when you come for acupuncture? At Family Acupuncture Associates we provide one on one treatment in a private setting. On your first visit you will participate in a very thorough intake. Health, diet, and lifestyle will be investigated in addition to the illness or symptom which may have brought you in. After a thorough health intake you will receive treatment. The first session will take 1 to 2 hours. Subsequent sessions will be 45 minutes to 1 hour each. Children's intake sessions are usually one hour, with subsequent sessions a half hour.

How many sessions will I need?

Acupuncture,  when performed to it's highest standard, consists of completely individualized treatments. Even if ten people in a row came in with asthma, no person would be treated alike, because no two people are alike. One of the basic tenets of Oriental  Medicine and Ayurveda is that it treats the person, not the disease. A course of treatment is based on many factors; the symptom and it's underlying causative factors.
