Acupuncture is effective in treating multiple chronic and acute ailments (joint pains, gastrointestinal issues, nicotine addiction, sports injuries and post-stroke symptoms)


Acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used medical procedures in the world. It was developed in China over 3000 years ago and has been growing in popularity in the United States since 1972. In 1973, the World Health Organization recommended acupuncture for 43 kinds of illnesses and symptoms, including nausea and vomiting, asthma, dental pain, and rehabilitation from the neurological damage of stroke. According to statistics taken in China, acupuncture is proven to effectively treat more than 200 kinds of diseases and symptoms. In 2004, a study in the U.S. by the National Institutes of Health shows acupuncture relieves pain and improves function in people with osteoarthritis of the knee.

What our patients have to say

“I am so thankful for the Born Clinic! The team has been so friendly and are good at what they do. Acupuncture made a huge difference for me, as well as food intolerance testing. Amazing office, especially if you feel like you need more help than traditional medicine has been able to provide you.”
