What does

acupuncture treat?

​Chinese herbs and acupuncture work well together to return your body to balance. In most cases with acupuncture, treatments don't happen everyday. Herbs, on the other hand, are taken on a daily basis. This will progress you more quickly and the effects will be more long lasting. This is especially true when working on issues such as insomnia, digestion, and menstrual/fertility issues. 

Herbs are dispensed a few different ways. Patented herbs in pill form are available at U-District Community Acupuncture. Sometimes a more customized formula is required. This can be obtained at an outside dispensary. These options can be discussed in more detail at your appointment. There is no additional charge for the herbal consultation.

U-District Community Acupuncture offers both acupuncture treatments and Chinese herb consultations to help restore you to your natural balance.


Acupuncture uses small needles inserted at specific points to stimulate the body's natural healing mechanisms and bring you back to a healthy balance. In ancient China, physicians discovered energetic pathways throughout the body called meridians. Points on these meridians can be used to stimulate any area of the body, including muscles, organs and tissues. By utilizing these points, acupuncture can address all sorts of complaints, whether they are of a physical, emotional, or spiritual nature.



  • Injury/Chronic pain

  • Insomnia 
  • Anxiety/Stress
  • Depression
  • ​Colds/Flu
  • ​Headaches/Migraines
  • Gynecological issues
  • Fertility​
  • Digestive issues
  • Heartburn/Reflux
  • Allergies/Sinus problems
  • Smoking cessation
  • Drug withdrawal

             Just to name a few!!

In most cases, it takes more than one acupuncture treatment to resolve a complaint.  Frequent treatments in a small amount of time will progress things more quickly than treatments spaced out over a long period of time.
