What is Chinese Medicine?

Chinese Medicine uses a set of diagnostic tools and treatment modalities developed in China and other East Asian countries over the last 2,000 years, prior to the advent of modern medical inventions. 
At Sanctuary Acupuncture and Holistic Health we strive to treat your body in a holistic manner because everything is connected. Your body is capable of achieving optimal health and we will just be there to help your body learn how to heal itself with our modalities of acupuncture, Chinese herbs, cupping, massage and Reiki.


Acupuncture has existed for thousands of years and is one of the oldest medical practices in the world. It involves the application of hair-thin needles placed along the body at specific acupuncture points. The main goal is to direct the body's own natural resources in order to promote healing and a return to homeostasis.


Your First Visit

Your first visit will be about 75-90 minutes long, to complete a comprehensive health history. We will discuss your chief complaint for why you are coming to see us, as well as inquiring about your current state of health, past illnesses and family health history. We believe in understanding all aspects of your body and lifestyle that can contribute to your health, to create a complete picture.
