Acupuncture has been recognized by the National Institute of Health (NIH) as well as by The World Health Organization.

Acupuncture is an ancient art therapy that stimulates a Self Healing response. Needles are applied in special areas of the body called acupoints. Acupoints are like doors or windows that offer easy access to the Qi or energy (pronounced as chi) of the body. You can get into a building through the door or through the walls, but it is much easier using the doors, similarly the acupoints are utilized in acupuncture to reestablish the balance of the body or to remove blockages that prevent the proper movement of Qi (pronounced as chi) and blood circulation. Such imbalances and blockages cause illness and pain. In cases of injuries, it is easy to observe black and blue areas, as well as tenderness or pain in such areas. Although sometimes these blockages are not so obvious, they still cause imbalances and pain in the body. The needles stimulate the acupoints to generate a response from the body, activating the Qi (pronounced as chi) and blood circulation, balancing the subtle energy fields, as well as releasing endorphins that are natural pain killers of the body.

Why should Acupuncture be used in Pain Management?


When someone suffers from pain, ACUPUNCTURE is the perfect solution. Not only is it safe and effective for general body pain, it is even more gentle than massage therapy and doesn’t have the harmful side effects experienced from medication. For this reason, acupuncture can be used to treat BOTH mild & severe forms of pain or trauma, and is also appropriate to be used before physical therapy or other strenuous modalities.
ACUPUNCTURE also speeds up the process of self-healing, by preparing the patient for more strenuous forms of physical therapy. In the long run, ACUPUNCTURE will enhance the effectiveness of any therapeutic steps taken thereafter.

Acupuncture Found Effective for Back Pain
Study finds it superior to usual care…
Daniel C. Cherkin, PhD, and colleagues examined a group of 638 patients suffering from back pain to determine not only if acupuncture is superior to usual care for treating back pain, but to see if needle insertion at individualized points is the mechanism of action by which acupuncture works best. A total of 10 acupuncture treatments was provided over the course of eight weeks.

According to Josephine P. Briggs, MD, director of the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine, "The findings of this research show that acupuncture-like treatments, including simulated acupuncture, can elicit positive responses. This adds to the growing body of evidence that there is something meaningful taking place during acupuncture treatments outside of actual needling. Future research is needed to delve deeper into what is evoking these responses."


“Eva’s treatments were the best thing I could have done… she helped me regain a semblance of a normal life. Words cannot express how grateful I am to her.”
“I have noticed a remarkable change in my pain. I do not need to take my prescribed medications on most days now… My entire body just feels better. I would recommend Eva as an acupuncturist to anyone with serious pain…”
“’I wish I had gone sooner’ is the response I get from family members and friends referred to Eva’s practice… For your healing, inspiration and generous sharing of knowledge – Eva, thank you.”



Chinese Medicine is a drug free healing tradition developed and perfected over thousands of years. It directs the body’s energy flows to promote the self-healing power each cell contains. It incorporates not only Acupuncture and Chinese herbs, but also a lifestyle which includes Qi Gong, Tai Chi and diet, as well as a mental attitude.

We are proud to offer acupuncture & Chinese herbal treatments for infertility, which have recently been accredited by the AMS as increasing the odds of impregnation in conjunction with western infertility treatments up to 40%-60% success (Acupuncture & IVF by Lifang Liang O.M.D.;Ph.D, L.ac.)



It can be used in conjunction with or separate from IVF treatment.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicines help to improve ovarian function, allowing for the development of better quality eggs and strong, healthy embryos. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can also regulate estrogen and progesterone levels, thereby thickening the lining of the uterus.
For those undergoing or considering IVF, a large number of patients who have tried IVF several times and were unsuccessful have soon become pregnant after acupuncture and Chinese medicinal treatments. In clinical observation, the ultrasound shows that, after acupuncture, the color of women’s ovaries change from cloudy to bright and clear. The follicles usually double in number, the lining of the uterus becomes thicker, and the number of embryos increase significantly. Patients experience less side-effects from the Western drugs, and feel more at ease and happy.

1. Improves the function of the ovaries to produce better quality eggs.
2. Regulates the hormones to produce a larger number of follicles.
3. Increases blood flow to the uterus and increases the thickness of the uterus lining.
4. Relaxes the patient and decreases their stress.
5. Prevents the uterus from contracting.
6. Lessens the side effects of drugs used in IVF.
7. Strengthens the immune system.
8. Improves semen to create better quality and quantity of embryos.
9. Decreases the chances of miscarriage.
