Classical Acupuncture sees and treats illness very differently from “Western Medicine.”  There is such a difference in perspective, in fact, that there is no direct one-to-one correlation with most “western” and “acupuncture” diagnoses.

I am not a MD. I don’t treat medical conditions. What I do is treat the imbalance that symptoms describe to me. Healing is something a healthy body can do by itself.   Jon-Erik Lido, L.Ac.

We invite you to explore our website to learn more about how our special approach to treatment can help you, your family and friends to achieve your own unique health goals. We treat a variety of conditions in order to help you have a healthier and better life. We can help you with:

  •  Sleep Issues Including Insomnia or Somnolence Quality sleep makes a huge impact in your well-being and quality of life. Acupuncture can help you find better sleep, find relief from insomnia, and have lots of energy to get through the day.
  • Back Pain Acupuncture can help break viscous cycles of poor posture, muscle guarding, knotted and cramping muscles, and low levels of activity that can lead to each other when we are in pain. Increasing blood flow, releasing tight and knotted muscles, restoring blood circulation, allowing a return to proper function and alignment are all possible through acupuncture.
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome People with CFS have either an over-abundance or a deficiency of qi in their kidneys, spleen, liver and lungs. An imbalanced qi can contribute to CFS. Qi, or the vital energy that flows through the body, can be balanced using acupuncture. By balancing the qi, you’ll experience a reduction of overall symptoms.
  • Fertility So many things need to go right in the bodies of both the female and male for pregnancy to happen and be maintained! Acupuncture can help the body to function properly so it’s easier to get and stay pregnant.
  • Depression People dealing with all sorts of mental conditions can be treated with acupuncture, including those dealing with depression.
