Acupuncture is one of the oldest medical procedures used in the world today. It began in China over 2000 years ago and has been used as a primary method of treatment ever since. One of the distinguishing characteristics of Oriental Medicine is that it looks at the body as a whole, rather than focusing on individual symptoms. This allows for more effective treatment by focusing on the root cause disease. According to Chinese medical theory, disease occurs because the body is out of balance. To restore harmony, acupuncture needles are inserted at specific points along pathways called channels or meridians. By stimulating these points, the body’s qi (pronounced chee), or vital energy, rebalances. The patient’s general condition of health is improved by strengthening the body’s ability to remain healthy and withstand disease or hardship.

Severe shoulder pain suffered for 1 year
“I cannot recommend too highly both the skill and personal approach to care exhibited at all times by Sarah Shupe. Having endured a year of pain in my shoulder, a condition that virtually disabled me on the right side and which defied traditional medical treatment, I turned to Sarah Shupe for help. From the first treatment session the shoulder improved and over a month the pain was relieved almost totally and I was again able to use my right arm without debilitating pain. My experience with acupuncture like my wife’s before me seems to have achieved a result that eluded standard medical treatment.” - Stephen G.
Sinus problems, headaches and migraines, muscle tension, anxiety
“I was very surprised I got some terrific relief on my first visit. Each visit gives even more relief. I walk out of the office feeling relaxed mentally and physically. I haven’t felt like this since I was a kid.” - Crystal B.
Tennis elbow, neck and back pain, headaches
“I was going to an orthopedic surgeon, for one year, getting steroid injections in my right elbow. The doctor told me the only thing left to do is repair the tendon. I was not ready for surgery. Then I decided to give acupuncture a try. I’m so glad I did, because after 6 treatments I could straighten my arm and had full use of my hand. Thank you Sarah for making me feel good again.” - Amy A.
