Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient system of medicine, with over 2,500 years of practice. In essence, it is based on the idea that the body's energy (“qi”) circulates through channels that connect to organs called “meridians”. Through interview, tongue and pulse diagnosis, Dr. Jasper, ND can create a custom program to help address a variety of health issues and pain syndromes. Acupuncture activates the meridians and has the ability to address pain, balance the nervous system, improve circulation and overall wellness. Each needle is hair-thin, sterile and single-use. Despite common assumptions, acupuncture treatments can be very soothing and calming.
