Our Philosophy

We believe prevention is the best cure.
We believe you should walk out feeling better.
We believe in identifying and treating the root cause of problems, rather than band-aid treatments for symptoms. We treat the cause, not just the effect.
We believe you deserve the time to express concerns, hear all treatment options, receive a clear explanation, and experience the most attentive and compassionate care possible.
We believe that every individual is made up of a unique combination of lifestyle, family, environment, diet, emotions, beliefs, and so on, therefore every treatment is specifically tailored to you as a whole being.
We're scared of needles too. We've gone through extensive training and practice to hone our needle technique and make it as painless as possible. Most of our patients fall asleep and find acupuncture to be an incredibly relaxing experience. And that makes us so happy!
At The Point, we believe the best approach to wellness is a marriage between holistic medicine and the modern needs of today's patients. As health concerns like autoimmune disorders, infertility, allergies, and cancer are on the rise, it is clear we need to reshape how doctors and patients care for the body and mind.
We strongly support the integration of eastern and western medicine. Our training includes patho-physiology, biochemistry, pharmacology, and interpretation of lab data, enabling us to work in an integrative manner with you and your medical doctors to speed healing and provide you with truly comprehensive care.
If you are under the care of a medical doctor or specialist, we will coordinate treatments and provide referrals if necessary.
