Acupuncture has long been a therapeutic and effective tool to treat ailments of varying type and severity. In fact, in China, Traditional Chinese Medicine (of which acupuncture is a component of) is used in the treatment of chronic illness in a primary care setting. Our acupuncturists have been trained in TCM and are an excellent source for complementary treatment in chronic illness at the Stram Center.

Acupuncture has been shown to be an immensely effective treatment modality, specifically for the following conditions: asthma and/or allergies, chronic pain, depression, anxiety, migraines, hypertension, insomnia, IBS, menopause, stress and more. Along with acupuncture’s ability to create a sense of ease, it targets the origin of your illness by restoring normal body functions.

Acupuncture has little to no unpleasant side effects, making it an excellent option for those who are looking to prevent progression of symptoms leading to the need for more invasive therapies, and for those who need more regular maintenance to feel their best.

Each acupuncture session is an hour long. You may choose to participate in the session in a private room or, established patients may also choose a community setting where multiple patients experience acupuncture in the same room at once.
