The goal of acupuncture is to restore and maintain balance to the body’s natural flow of energy, called Qi (chi). Blocked or impaired energy flow is a root cause of disease, so restoring the natural energy flow restores health. A qualified acupuncturist uses several techniques to manipulate Qi along 14 pathways, called meridians. Both noninvasive surface manipulations and insertions are used to restore proper energy flow and improve health.

The Japanese acupuncture styles practiced at our treatment facility in Watertown, MA are particularly beneficial. They work more directly with a patient’s energy than current Chinese styles, and utilize a wide range of very light, effective techniques to achieve dramatic results with a minimum level of intervention.  This is particularly true for children, who respond particularly well to noninvasive surface techniques–no needles!

Our leading acupuncturist, Martin Feldman, is a graduate of the highly respected New England School of Acupuncture. Martin also studied in Japan with the renowned masters of the Toyohari Association. Martin is a highly qualified health care professional with over 30 years of experience in the field.

Why not give acupuncture a try? This ancient, effective, holistic health care option has helped millions of people improve health, vitality and quality of life for generations.
