Acupuncture & Chinese Medicine

Acupuncture is the #1 referred to medical treatment when doctors want to help patients avoid unnecessary surgery and reduce the amount of medications they take. It’s used to treat problems like back pain, knee pain, infertility, neuropathy, migraines, headaches and much more. It’s been scientifically proven acupuncture treatment can improve quality of life, reduce stress levels, and improve recovery time from both acute and chronic injuries. It also helps to balance hormones, reduce anxiety, lift depression and live a better life. Acupuncture has been practiced for over 3,000 years all over the world. Millions use and depend on acupuncture . Acupuncture works by stimulating very specific points on the body to release natural painkillers called endorphins, increase blood flow, and calm pain centers in the brain.

What happens at an acupuncture treatment?

When you come in for acupuncture, our first goal determine what the root cause of your health concern is, then we develop a personalized plan that fixes it. So we'll perform a careful examination, that includes asking you a bunch of detailed questions and performing a physical examination of any painful or tender areas. We also use a couple of unique diagnostic tools like tongue and pulse diagnosis which give us an idea of how your body is functioning.

Then the fun part starts!

You get to relax on a comfortable table while your body starts to heal itself. We use one time use, tiny little pins, and place them in really specific areas of your body.
Most visits last about 30 minutes and many people leave the office saying it's their favorite part of their week.

Does it hurt?

No! Some people might be a bit timid at the thought of giant needles but when it comes to acupuncture we use tiny little pins that are the width of just 2 strands of your hair. Most people find it is really relaxing. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked into the room and found a patient snoring during a relaxing nap.

How often do I need to come?

It depends on your condition, if you’ve had a problem for a long time, expect to come once or twice a week for a few weeks until we can get things under control.

I've had surgery, can I still come for acupuncture?

Yes! Acupuncture is used post operatively everyday across the world. It actually helps you to heal faster. Studies show acupuncture can speed up healing by 5 times.

Where are you going to put the needles?

It depends on your specific problem. Most go into your arms or legs, generally below the elbow or knee. The good news is it's super gentle.

Look What Our Patients Are Saying...

After multiple nerve blocks and never-ending pain, I had literally tried everything. My back pain was unbearable and it started messing up my day-to-day life. I went to Dr. Hanson from a freind’s referal and after about 4-5 sessions ... and a lot of trust (I was scared of the needles), he helped minimize my back pain. I’m working out, living a normal life, and so thrilled to say ... without any back pain!
