Welcome to Karin’s Acupuncture and Wellness website! We hope you will enjoy browsing through our website, and that you will find a lot of useful information here.

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. Instead of the traditional disease-centered focus of conventional medicine, TCM principles integrated with a patient-centered approach address the whole person rather than just simply his or her symptoms.

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.
