Elder Health Quality Care

We live in an amazing time.  The efforts of so many people have built the amazing country in which we live and and are extending our lifespans through surgical and pharmaceutical therapies.  Research shows that life expectancy in the United States has grown by about 14 years over the last century, and is likely to expand for some time to come1.

Research is just beginning to track an even more important statistic: Healthy Life Expectancy2.  This is a measure of how long humans live without major disability and while maintaining their capacity to enjoy life activities.


While medication and surgery can improve certain factors in our bodies and minds, they are rarely the panacea that we all want them to be.   Symptoms and side effects may still need to be addressed.  This is where Acupuncture Medicine can help add longevity and, more importantly, quality longevity to the human experience.  Not only can it manage specific symptoms, but it helps the body enter its natural healing state of being.  Western science and our own common sense tell us that stress induces various changes in our organ systems and blood chemistry that are bad for our health.

Now imagine a state of being that is the opposite of feeling stressed out.


This is the state of being most patients report experiencing during and after an Acupuncture Treatment.  This is why so many patients report that Acupuncture Medicine was the missing key to unlocking their health and helping to integrate other therapies they use to manage their health.  This positive state of being is where our bodies and our minds need to be in order to heal from injury, trauma, and stress.  Time we spend in this state of being is how we add years to our lives, and, more importantly, years of health to our lives.  This is one way that Acupuncture Medicine can help you live the life you want.


Acupuncture Medicine is used in so many health care treatment strategies.  Major institutions and private practices around the country use it for prevention of and recovery from stroke, heart attack, broken bones, chronic pain, stress, anxiety, and depression.  And that list will continue to grow.

Please refer to our online resource about the growing body of amazing research about Acupuncture Medicine and how this research is convincing the general public and the medical establishment to include it as a part of overall health care management.
