It's in our name: we like to go to the root.

This is why your practitioner was trained for many years in China, the birthplace of acupuncture. Our goal is to guide you through your holistic journey to health, by understanding the root cause of your concern and allowing you to tap into all the avenues of healing. 


Our clinic is known for its calm and clean atmosphere, and for a painless, effective, and compassionate care. We aim to make you feel at ease and relaxed throughout your visit.

Why acupuncture?

Here are a few reasons why acupuncture is becoming more and more popular:

It is natural and holistic

Acupuncture works by regulating the circulatory, endocrine, digestive, immune, and nervous systems as the needles reduce local inflammation and increase local blood flow. 

Getting acupuncture is like fine-tuning your body's own resources and optimizing them for healing.

Because acupuncture considers the body as a whole instead of looking at isolated parts, it is useful for the treatment of many health concerns.

It is safe and feels good

Our style of acupuncture is generally painless and most people even report that it feels really relaxing. 

Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing arts, with over 3000 years of recorded history. It is one of the safest modalities of treatment, with little to no side-effects.

We use hair-thin, sterile, disposable (single-use) needles that are placed in specific points on your body. Then you rest for 20 minutes for your "acu-nap" while the needles do the work for you.

It is effective

3000 years of empirical experience are now being backed by modern science.

Countless studies have proven acupuncture to be effective for a wide range of health conditions.

The World Health Organization (WHO),  MDAnderson, Mayo Clinic, and many other major institutions now endorse acupuncture's efficacy.
