Our Goal and Healthcare

Our goal : To provide a quiet, relaxing environment for our patients to receive personalized, professional health care supporting each patient's individualized healing experience. 

Providing Individualized Treatment & Healthcare:  Acupuncture and Herbal treatments focus on treating the individual, not only help to relieve the signs and symptoms of many health problems,  also help to uncover and resolve the underlying root causes of those symptoms.  A treatment plan may include acupuncture (using thin, sterile, disposable stainless steel needles), moxibustion (used to warm and stimulate acupuncture points), suction cupping, herbal prescriptions and other modalities— depending on the individual and their presenting symptoms — all with the goal of addressing not only the complaint that brings you to the clinic but also the related underlying imbalances. We also work to promote your overall health and wellness, and strengthen immunity to prevent illness.      

Financial Support and Healing Space

Making the treatments  affordable:  Acupuncture is most effective if you can make frequent and regular visits to your practitioner. At E-W Acupuncture & Herbal Center treatments are priced affordably, so you can make acupuncture a regular part of your health and wellness routine, not just an occasional event or a last resort. Your health should never come at the expense of  cost, therefore, we also participate with several health insurance plans and our staff will work with you to ensure your care comes first. 

Providing a Relaxing & Healing Space: The space offers an alternative to the traditional medical practice. The space is designed intentionally to enable patrons to come to relax and let go of stress.

Acupuncture at Mayo Clinic

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the flow of energy or life force — known as qi or chi (CHEE) — believed to flow through pathways (meridians) in your body. 

By inserting needles into specific points along these meridians, acupuncture practitioners believe that your energy flow will re-balance.
