Acupuncture Overview

Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is one of the oldest and most commonly used medical treatments in the world. Hundreds of acupuncture points in the human body are connected by meridians, which conduct energy. This energy regulates our spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical well-being. Disruptions to these pathways are believed to be responsible for disease.

Hair-thin needles are gently inserted at specific points on the body to help balance the Yin and Yang, unblock stagnant energy, and restore health to the body and mind.

Millions of Americans have safely received acupuncture for the treatment of a broad spectrum of health conditions including pain relief.

Acupuncture Techniques at Soaring Crane

Acupuncture: Eric's technique is gentle and calming. Please refer to the "What Can Acupuncture Treat?" section below to learn how acupuncture may benefit you.

Acupuncture & Massage: A synergistic effect is created when receiving acupuncture followed by bodywork. Acupuncture opens the meridians and allows a person to be more receptive to bodywork.

Smoking Cessation Program: This program consists of a series or acupuncture treatments designed to help you quit smoking.

Eric's approach to smoking cessation is discussed in the following published articles:

Quite possibly. I am currently a preferred Acupuncture provider with Aetna. I also specialize in PIP (automobile accident-related injury) claims.

Please check with your insurance company regarding your health benefits. Most plans allow you to self-refer for acupuncture.
