Acupuncture is a holistic medicine that addresses the person as a whole with both physical and psychological aspects. Acupuncture consists of introducing fine needles at strategic points of the body to restore energy balance. According to Chinese medicine, a balanced person is a healthy person.

Officially recognized by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the National institute of Health (NIHL), acupuncture was included in Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 2010

Our body has 12 meridians on which 361 acupuncture points lie.

Professional Acupuncture and thread embedding has a wide range of benefits, and some of these benefits may help with weight loss. Thread embedding is a special acupuncture technique aimed at producing a continuous acupuncture-like effect by embedding self-absorbed surgical thread into acupoints to improve your problems. This therapy is used to lose weight by balancing your digestive system and improving your body’s internal environment.Particularly, these effects may help with weight loss:Improve Your Digestion – Gastrointestinal issues such as bloating or constipation can lead to more weight gain and less weight loss. A trained acupuncturist can target acupuncture points to improve digestion and reduce gastrointestinal issues, leading to more weight loss.Reduce Inflammation – Inflammation can slow down your metabolism and hinder your immune system leading to slower weight loss. By stimulating your body to reduce this inflammation, your body can focus more on losing weight.Balance Your Hormones – An imbalance in your hormone levels can have seriously negative effects on your body, including weight fluctuations and difficulty with weight loss. By triggering certain acupuncture points in your body that are related to hormone production, it can help you regulate your hormones and improve your general health.Boost Your Metabolism – Your metabolism is very important when it comes to weight loss. Your pituitary gland is one of the key parts of your body that correlates to your metabolism rate and, by stimulating it, you could potentially improve your metabolism. With a better metabolism rate, your body will have an easier time burning fat.Reduce Your Appetite – Some people have found that acupuncture has reduced their appetite. If you feel the need to consume fewer calories, you’ll have an easier time losing weight.Improve Your Mental Health To Help You Fight Unhealthy Urges – Losing weight isn’t just a physical battle, especially if you struggle with unhealthy tendencies when dealing with food. Many people turn to food when dealing with stress or anxiety, however, if you find other ways to deal with your emotions, you could turn to food less. Acupuncture can be a great experience that helps you let go of stress, perhaps making it easier to resist the urge to overeat.What You Can Do To Boost Your Chances Of Losing Weight – Acupuncture can clearly help you with weight loss, but you should not rely on it alone. You should do your best to incorporate acupuncture’s benefits into your weight loss plan by including healthy lifestyle changes that’ll improve your health and help you lose some weight.Course of Treatment – Every 14 days for three months.


Cosmetic Facial Acupuncture is acupuncture for cosmetic purposes. Acupuncture needles are used to stimulate the skin and underlying muscles of the face. It is said to help improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and give the face a more youthful appearance. Proponents of cosmetic acupuncture report that there is a range of skin benefits that have been shown to help reduce the depth, severity, and frequency of wrinkles, fade fine lines, remove age spots, lift droopy eyelids, and stimulate the production of collagen, which indicate a youthful face.Tiny acupuncture needles are inserted into specific acupuncture points on the face in each acupuncture session. This stimulation helps to increase collagen production and improve blood circulation. As a result, you can see an improvement in skin elasticity, reduced wrinkles, and a general brightening of the complexion. This is fast becoming a great alternative to Botox or other injectables. It is much less expensive and has none of the potential side effects that come with more invasive procedures. Additionally, it is quite relaxing. Course of Treatment – once a week for 8-12 weeks and then once a month for maintenance. However, this may vary depending on individual needs and goals.


Neck and/or Shoulder Pain aka “Tech Neck” – In TCM neck and shoulder pain is caused by wind and cold, overexertion and blood stasis or Liver and Kidney deficiency. Acupuncture is used to dispel wind and cold, stretch tendons and activate blood or nourish and strengthen the liver and kidneys to relieve the pain. Cupping along with acupuncture is recommended. Moxibustion is also sometimes used. A suggested initial course of treatment is 2 times per week for 3 weeks, then 1 time per week for 3 weeks. Therapeutic results differ based on etiological factors.


In TCM Lower back pain (chronic or acute) is brought on by wind, cold, dampness or lumbar sprain causing an obstruction of Qi and blood in the meridians causing pain.  Additionally a deficiency of the kidneys fails to nourish the meridians of the lumbar region  and the malnutrition results in pain.  Acupuncture dispels the wind, cold and/or dampness to activate the blood to relieve the pain.  In patients with kidney deficiency, acupuncture strengthens the kidneys.  Cupping along with acupuncture is recommended.  Moxibustion is also sometimes used.  A suggested initial course of treatment is 2 times per week for 3 weeks, then 1 time per week for 3 weeks.   Therapeutic results differ based on etiological factors.

Acupuncture is one of the most common and dependable medical therapies used around the world. It is the oldest continuously practiced medical system in the world, used by nearly one third of the planet’s people as a primary health care system or as a supplemental therapy. It is by nature simple, safe and accessible health care. Acupuncture can be a powerfully effective and naturally relaxing form of medicine.

The needles are the size of hair and most do not feel them entering their skin.

Very thin, solid, hairlike needles are inserted at specific points on the body. The stimulation of these acupuncture points affects both the central and peripheral nervous systems. It stimulates the release of chemicals such as endorphins which help with pain and stress.

Yes, more and more insurance companies actually do cover medical acupuncture as it is difficult to oppose current studies showing acupuncture’s benefit. As with all her services, Dr. Chan can provide you with a receipt and breakdown of the service and you can request reimbursement from your insurance company. (Dr. Chan will be considered an out-of-network provider.)

Dr. Chan sees the benefit of using acupuncture and wants to make it as accessible as possible to you. Some people schedule a weekly appointment in the acupuncture room.

Dr. Chan sees the benefit of using No. We use disposable needles. They come in sterilized packages, we use them once, then we dispose of them in an approved container. room.

A typical acupuncture visit lasts about 45-60 minutes.

After checking in at the front desk and completing some paperwork, you will go to the acupuncture room and make yourself comfortable. After a brief conversation between the patient and practitioner, we may take your pulse and look at your tongue. Depending on a variety of factors, a specific point prescription is selected. Typically after this time people feel very sleepy and will nap for a while.

Please wear comfortable clothing. You’ll just have to roll your sleeves and pant legs up, in order to get ready for your treatment, as we use styles of acupuncture which allows us to select points primarily on the arms and legs.

We play quiet, relaxing music in the treatment room, but feel free to bring in headphones if you would like to listen to your own music.

Schedule an appointment! Dr. Chan will personalize a session for you. She has small magnetic beads that can be taped to your skin in acupressure points instead of using a needle; however, showing you how small the needle is and the very small depth it enters the skin may help eliminate your fears.
