Welcome to North County Acupuncture

I believe that true and lasting health is achieved when our mind, body and spirit are in balance. This includes being balanced within ourselves as well as in relation to our external environment. As we improve the circulation and flow of blood and Qi (energy) through acupuncture, the internal aspects of our being become balanced and healthy.We feel better and function at a higher level. This in turn improves our relationship with our external environment. Our bodies become more resistant to disease and our ability to handle stress improves.This leads to a greater enjoyment of life and all it has to offer. I invite you to try acupuncture and see how it can change your life.
