We promote holistic health care because we believe good health is more than just physical health. At 8 Branches we also focus on mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being to help our patients find balance and improve their quality of life. Our approach is to provide exceptional care through personal connection. As individuals, we are complex and unique and require an open ear and someone who really cares to listen.
At 8 Branches we practice Chinese Medicine, one of the oldest and most comprehensive models of care with medical texts and tools dating back thousands of years. Through this lens, the body is seen as a whole and not treated in parts. Our practitioners look for connections between symptoms and diseases to find common patterns in each individual. All symptoms and dysfunction lead to a root cause of imbalance. By treating the whole person, and not just the disease, we help bring the body back to its natural state of balance and see overall improvement in quality of life, while also treating the back pain, anxiety or sinus pressure you initially came in for.
To help you attain optimal health, we go one step further in our care and address external influences at the same time we are treating any internal dysfunction. We understand how strongly our health is affected by our environment, not just our immediate surroundings (home, office, etc.), but also our relationship with nature and the changing seasons. By incorporating the foods, activities and care appropriate to each season, you can make positive changes to your health and well being. Let us be your guide.
The eight branches of Chinese Medicine represent the comprehensive nature of our practice. We offer a full spectrum of services to meet the needs of each person we see.
Holistic health care IS for the whole family- from birth and beyond. You will notice a difference in our personalized care as we help you understand how traditional medicine can fit effectively into your modern lifestyle.

Non-pharmacological treatments for pain are becoming more popular as patients are looking to avoid opioid use. Acupuncture is effective at treating chronic and acute pain in conditions like migraines, TMJ, carpal tunnel, back pain, sciatica, arthritis, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, and more. The American College of Physicians has recommended acupuncture as an alternative treatment to drug therapy.
