I believe that there are three fundamental elements of a happy, contented life. One, we need to be able to eat, digest, and eliminate every day. Two, we need to be able to sleep well. Third, we need good sex life. Based on these three elements, we build life and pursuit dreams. However, stress, unhealthy diet and eating habits, and many environmental pollutions make the foundation of our lives unbalanced, thus, we experience depression, anxiety, digestive disorder and sexual dysfunction.

Acupuncture in El Cerrito - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. El Cerrito acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into the body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
