Unstick your qi and release your hidden superpowers.
Ancient Chinese cartographers mapped a network of channels in the body through which energy, or qi, flows. Tentatively known as The Inter Net, before that name was discarded as silly, these channels revealed that the uneven flow of energy can cause disease and pain. Certified and licensed acupuncturist Tom Ingegno will gently tap into those channels to get your energy flowing and improve your body's ability to heal itself.
Even if you're squeamish about the needles, Tom will put you at ease with his gentle technique and comprehensive explanation of your treatment; in fact, he specializes in dealing with first-time patients, and is certified to treat pets, which is a testament to his gentle touch. Unlike hypodermic needles, acupuncture needles aren't hollow; instead, they are super fine, enabling them to pinch less. Though some patients report a tiny pinch or tingling sensation, many acupuncture patients find their treatment relaxing and invigorating. After a brief consultation, your treatment is likely to last about an hour. Check out Ancient Arts Acupuncture's hours and call to schedule an appointment.
The National Institutes of Health concluded in 1997 that acupuncture is an effective treatment for a variety of conditions, including asthma, allergies, headaches, menstrual cramps, and back pain. Even fiddle-fit specimens of health can benefit from acupuncture treatment, as it is known to boost the immune system—just in time for flu season and the cataclysmic pole shift predicted to occur in 2012.

Reno Raines: Renegade Acupuncturist
The stunning popularity of acupuncture in modern America can be traced to a seminal cultural phenomenon: the hit 90s TV series Renegade. The first of many shows to bring the Eastern art of healing with needles into the mainstream, the series’ haunting intro continues to inspire idealistic young acupuncturists:
- Reno Raines. He was an acupuncturist, and good at his job. But he committed the ultimate sin, and testified against other acupuncturists gone bad. Acupuncturists that tried to kill him, but got the woman he loved instead. Framed for murder, now he prowls the badlands. An outlaw performing acupuncture, a rogue acupuncturist, a Renegade.
Independently wealthy, Raines accepted only kindness and handwritten letters of thanks in exchange for his services. Riding alone on his motorcycle, Diana, Raines stopped in his rambles just long enough to thwart local corruption, do some acupuncture, and capture the heart of any woman foolish enough to fall for him. A movie featuring Reno Raines, rogue acupuncturist, is set to be released soon, tentatively titled The Acupuncturist Who Travels Around and Gets Into Adventures.
