I thank you God for most this amazing day:
for the leaping greenly spirits of trees and a blue true dream of sky;
and for everything which is natural which is infinite which is yes

About Us

We as acupuncturists believe that our patients have a blueprint for health within them. It is our job to connect them to it and marvel at how the body can heal itself.

Licensed Acupuncturist, NCCAOM

Josh first experienced acupuncture around 2000, for physical relief of sports related injuries. In 2001 he began treatment with a Classically Trained Acupuncturist for general wellness care.
