Manuel Avancena says...

The future of healing is comfort

Laser acupuncture is the perfect combination of effectiveness and patient comfort.  It involves  a simple and quick testing method.  Treatment follows using  a low-level laser in coordination with auricular points.  This form of treatment is completely non-invasive and great for kids of all ages.

Chinese and Western Herbs

In some cases the use of herbal medicine can significantly speed up the rate of healing.  We use herbs from both Chinese medicine as well as traditional Western herbs.  They are easy to take in tablet or tincture form.

A Powerful Traditional Therapy

With my Acupuncture therapy, patients claim to feel relaxed and renewed after each session. I'm trained in holistic therapy techniques, so I tailor your session to work on your specific goals and needs. I love showing my patients how just a few treatments can make an enormous difference to their health.
