Journey to healing

Acupuncture is an ancient healing art

It dates back to the 3rd century B.C. and is based on the theory that Qi (pronounced chee) regulates a person’s spiritual, emotional, mental and physical balance.

Acupuncture treatment

The foundation of health lies in the fact that everything is connected

I employ the Five-Element philosophy. It is based on nature and the principles of the five elements corresponding with each of the seasons. The Chinese observed the cycles of nature as reflected in these seasons and in the movement of all living things through all cycles of life.

Our clients are our voice

“I’m always amazed at my own transformation after my treatments with Lesley. The beauty and depth of acupuncture treatments coupled with Lesley’s expertise and therapeutic guidance is a gift; for me it’s the gift of life. I leave the office both physically and emotionally strengthened. Lesley has taught me how to accept myself and how to truly live with faith, courage, and commitment. I am forever thankful for Lesley’s kindness and friendship.”

“I have been under acupuncture treatment with Lesley for almost a year. I first sought acupuncture treatment for cystitis. After about three treatments my symptoms of urinary urgency and frequency were completely gone. Lesley has been working with me to heighten my awareness of bladder irritants and the mind body connection in general. I have had positive unexpected results from acupuncture treatment such as a decrease in nightmares and food cravings. I went from a reluctant and skeptical acupuncture patient to true believer in the power of aligning the body through acupuncture so it can heal itself. It has proven to be an amazing adjunct to Westernized medicine.”

“Since receiving acupuncture treatment I have noticed a general increase and balance of my internal energy. I am increasingly aware that this flow of energy assists me with decreasing my stress level and increases my ability to clarify the issues I may have brought with me to the treatment session. With this improved clarity and calm, which I gain from an acupuncture treatment, I have found that I am better able to manage my responsibilities as a parent, professional and life partner. In addition, I have an increase in physical energy that allows me to perform my general daily activities in a more effective, grounded manner.”
