Inspired by the tenets of traditional Chinese medicine, Acupuncture Center’s David and Kim Yoo strive to create balance and harmony in the body through non-Western medical techniques. Their hair-thin acupuncture needles unblock energy flow along the body's 71 meridians, and cupping sessions draw stagnant qi out from its nap on the soul’s couch. The doctors Yoo also employ moxibustion, a 3,000-year old practice of applying a stick of burning mugwort over an acupuncture point to stimulate and strengthen the blood and life energy. Acupuncture Center works in conjunction with primary-care physicians, often receiving referrals from MDs and augmenting traditional treatments of maladies such as lower back pain, arthritis, migraines, and sleep disorders.
