About Us

Retreat Acupuncture and Wellness is a traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture, and massage outpatient clinic. Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has a history of more than 5,000 years as a primary medical system that has helped millions of people throughout the centuries with general health concerns as well as many challenging public health crises. From this comes time-honored medical experiences and healing wisdom that Retreat aims to uphold and utilize to the best of its ability for the betterment of its patients’ health and well-being.
This starts with an emphasis on individual patient care. Understanding an individual’s unique health situation through a careful intake and diagnosis is the cornerstone of TCM and its healing attributes. From a proper diagnosis comes a safe and effective treatment plan specific to each person. This is the manner in which TCM achieves consistent successful outcomes while simultaneously promoting wellness.
The Yellow Emperor said,
“When the five yin and six yang organs are diseased, it is like there is a thorn, a piece of dirt, a knot, or a blockage.

Although the dirt may be longstanding, it can be wiped away. Although the knot may be longstanding, it can be untied. Although the blockage may be longstanding, it can be opened.

Those who use needles should look for the cause of disease. Then the thorn can be removed, the dirt wiped clean, the knot untied, and the blockage opened. Even though a disease is longstanding, it can be stopped.

Those who say these conditions cannot be treated have not yet realized their skill.”
