I decided to try acupuncture because I was experiencing significant pain in my lower back. I went to see Mark two times about a week apart.  After the first treatment, the pain become more manageable. After the second treatment, I got the best nights sleep I'd been able to have in weeks and woke up virtually pain free. - Kristi McIver, Retail Store Manager

Welcome to Five CrossRoads Acupuncture

I practice Classic Acupuncture as taught by Japanese Master Kiiko Matsumoto. This style of acupuncture is extremely effective in treating many of our modern complaints: Pain, Lack of Energy, Broken Sleep and Stress. One way acupuncture works is to reset our natural cycles to ignite healing. I invite you to come in for a single treatment and see how acupuncture will bring greater Health to Your Life.

For those new to acupuncture the needles are hair-thin and the insertion is fairly shallow. One may experience a pinch that quickly passes. Many patients fall into a Deeply Relaxed State. No matter what reason you come for treatment many report Better Sleep, Brighter Spirits and Greater Energy.

One of the principles reasons why people seek out acupuncture is Pain Relief for any and every body pain. Every day I work with patients in pain whether acute or chronic. Many are taking pain medication such as hydrocodone or oxycodone types of synthetic opiods. These medications do help patients limit their pain but they do not promote healing. Acupuncture promotes healing. After a series of treatments patients are either able to limit or eliminate their medications. For those whose pain does not require pain medication acupuncture works wonderfully fast and is very effective. Patients report getting their Life Back.

Patients often ask how Acupuncture Works. The simplest answer is that inserting acupuncture needles in the body Stimulates Blood Flow thus igniting healing. The more blood flows into vital organs, muscle, fascia, tendons and ligaments the greater the possibility of relief and healing. After a single treatment you will know whether acupuncture has worked. You will know if you feel better. And the treatment will continue to work after the needles are removed.
