Welcome to Dr. Park Acupuncture!

If you have been suffering from a health problem whether it is chronic pain, fibromyalgia, allergies, or the myriad of other diseases, you are not alone. Modern medicine has made it possible for Americans to live longer and decrease mortality rates, but the quality of health has not improved for many people. The current approach of pharmaceutical drugs and surgery may be effective for life threatening and severe conditions, but may be very limited and only provide symptomatic relief when applied to everyday or chronic health issues.
What would it be like to live a healthier, more productive and energetic life?
At Dr. Park Acupuncture we not only treat the symptoms, but also work with you to identify and treat the root cause of the symptoms.
Our belief is that when performed properly, Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine can stimulate the body’s natural healing mechanism to help you achieve your goal.

I look forward to helping your journey to optimum health.
