In the spirit of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), a primary goal of Karin’s Acupuncture and Wellness, PLLC is to provide our patients with a broader understanding of health, a personalized TCM treatment that has proven results for thousands of years and a more lasting sense of well-being.

What this means is that patient and provider work together to develop an integrated assessment and therapeutic plan that will best address the patient holistically.
