Welcome to Sweet Air Acupuncture. Please take a few minutes to read a little bit about this traditional medicine, and if you have any questions don't hesitate to give us a call anytime and we'll do everything we can to get all of your questions answered.
Acupuncture has been practiced for over 3,000 years for everything from anxiety and depression, to simple physical aches and pains. Each patient we work with will be treated in a relaxed, caring and confidential environment. Western medicine works miracles every day and still many people find that what ails them is not best treated by what tend to be the big guns of Western medical treatment -- or they're tired of the way a prescription makes them feel. Chinese medicine, acupuncture and Chinese Herbs, is traditionally a preventative medicine and its focus is truly on helping your body achieve the wellness that is possible for everyone, and maintaining that balance. Everyone's body knows exactly what it needs to be and to stay well and sometimes it just takes a gentle reminder to help you learn to interpret those needs and to head off difficult symptoms before they arise.
