Welcome to Acupuncture Journeys!

I was once told that life will never be a destination, but a continuous journey. When I was young my mother taught me that ‘without one’s health, one has nothing.’ Our health is our vitality, but is something all too often overlooked, put to the side or completely forgotten all together. Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) are an effective form of treatment that has evolved into a complete holistic health care system. They can enhance recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and well-being.

Acupuncture is safe, natural and effective. However, it is much more than an aid to alleviate symptoms and achieve optimal health, but truly a road towards self-discovery and vitality. Vitality is defined as: exuberant physical or mental vigor; the continuation of a meaningful or purposeful existence; power to live or grow; and vital force or principle. Vitality is not a destination, it’s a continuous journey…and acupuncture can support you in that process of discovery.

Acupuncture promotes natural healing which in itself is empowering. It has been around for over 3,000 years and the reason it has been around for so long is simple. The question is not whethe­­r acupuncture works, but how acupuncture is going to work for you. Join us on your journey and discover how acupuncture can help you learn, heal and live a fuller more vital life.

Those who have cystic fibrosis have a defective gene that impairs epithelial cell function. This can lead to a buildup
