How it's Done


The human body has an extraordinary and enormous capacity to heal itself. Acupuncture is the most advanced technique for modulating and directing that natural healing system.

(Oh, and our patients always tell us how relaxing it is…)

Why Is Acupuncture So Popular?

Here are just a few reasons…

  • It's Incredibly Safe

    Acupuncture is proven to be one of the safest therapies on Earth, used by millions of people the world over on a daily basis. Sterile, single-use, disposable needles. No bleeding or pain. And, virtually no side-effects.

  • Proven Results

    Acupuncture is perhaps the oldest form of therapy. It has stood the test of time and continues to demonstrate effectiveness today. Study after study has shown it to be effective for a wide range of health conditions. Again, because it amplifies your body's natural healing mechanisms, it can help in virtually any situation.


    Acupuncture harnesses and amplifies the most powerful healing tool ever discovered – YOU. Its power is awakening and guiding your body’s healing resources.

  • Zen-Like Relaxation

    Acupuncture is one of the most relaxing therapies you’ll ever experience. You’ll look forward to its rejuvenating effects.

How Acupuncture Works

  • Calms And Balances The Neuro-Endocrine Axis

    When your nervous system is calm, your hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means more hormonal balance, less inflammation, better circulation, and nutrient absorption.

  • Releases Natural Painkillers

    When we insert a needle in your body, there is a signal that goes to your brain and your brain releases many substances, such as endorphins and enkephalins, which are very potent and powerful natural pain killers.

  • Promotes Normal Blood Flow

    Blood carries everything our body needs to heal, oxygen, nutrients, hormones, anti-inflammatory substances, and pain-killers. Promoting normal blood flow promotes and maintains health. When we use acupuncture to bring more blood flow to the glands and tissues that need the most support, those tissues naturally work better. This means key tissues like thyroid, liver, adrenals, ovaries, and others are able to function at peak levels.

  • Promotes Tissue Healing

    When you use acupuncture to stimulate your body’s healing process, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help you heal faster.

  • Helps Your Body Sustain Optimal Function

    When you apply acupuncture as a weekly therapy for several weeks, your body naturally and gently begins to undergo positive changes. This is different from drugs and surgery which represent drastic, sudden change your body may not be able to sustain. The changes induced by acupuncture are literally like new pathways your body won’t soon forget.

  • Acupuncture Reduces Stress

    Acupuncture regulates the parasympathetic nervous system. The parasympathetic nervous system is the one in charge of the “rest and digest” functions in our body, as opposed to the sympathetic nervous system, the one that keeps us in “fight or flight response”. In our modern world, most of us live in constant stress, chronically activating the  “flight and fight response”. Many autoimmune and chronic conditions have been linked to impaired parasympathetic function. By activating the “rest and digest system” (parasympathetic system), acupuncture induces a deep state of relaxation which is extremely beneficial and can help prevent many conditions.

Our mission is simple: Exceptional Caring. Exceptional Results.


“Over the past years, my husband and I have used the professional services of Karla on many occasions and for many different conditions.  We have found she has a true concern for her patients. She takes time to listen and then treats the problem(s). In each case, Karla did extra research to check the latest treatments and then proceeded to further treat us. The result has always been positive. We have both agreed that she treats you for a period necessary to show results and then releases you, rather than keep you coming back as some other practices do. Thank you, Karla, for your concern and the use of your hand in a tender way when inserting needles. It is often that we will say..."have you put a needle in?"...since we felt no pain or insertion. We will certainly be back whenever her skills are called for.”
