Acupuncture for Every BODY

Traditional Chinese Medicine at SuNu

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a system of health care that has existed for over 3,000 years. Acupuncture is a branch of TCM. Over the past 2,000 years, it has treated more people in Asia and Europe than all other health care systems combined. This safe and effective healing modality is being accepted and used more and more in the United States, as research is increasingly proving it's efficacy.
Acupuncture involves the use of very small, sterile, disposable needles inserted into various points on the body to promote healing and prevent disease. There is little, if any, discomfort as the small needles are inserted. Most patients report a feeling of deep relaxation and overall well-being during and after treatments.

SuNu Celebrates AOM Day the week of October 24th and is offering FREE consultations and New Patient Visits for only $85!

Call to schedule your 15 minute complimentary visit or a New Client treatment 10/23-10/25 to receive this special promotion! 


Unlike the hollow hypodermic needles used in mainstream medicine to give injections or draw blood, acupuncture needles are solid. The points can be needled between 15 and 90 degrees in range relative to the skin’s surface, depending on treatment.

Acupuncture is thought to restore health by removing energy imbalances and blockages in the body. There are 12 major and 8 minor meridians. Qi regulates the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical harmony of the body by keeping the forces of yin and yang in balance. Yang is a principle of heat, activity, brightness, outwardness, while yin represents coldness, passivity, darkness, interiority, etc. TCM does not try to eliminate either yin or yang, but to keep them in harmonious balance. Acupuncture may be used to raise or lower the level of yin or yang in a specific part of the body in order to restore the energy balance.

Acupuncture’s record of success has been sufficiently impressive to stimulate a number of research projects investigating its mechanisms as well as its efficacy. Research has been funded not only by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), but also by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA), the National Institute of Dental Research, the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), and the National Institute on Drug Abuse. In 1997 a consensus panel of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) presented a landmark report in which it described acupuncture as a sufficiently promising form of treatment to merit further study. In 2000, the British Medical Association (BMA) recommended that acupuncture should be made more readily available through the National Health Service (NHS), and that family doctors should be trained in some of its techniques.

According to classical TCM theory, the stimulation of acupoints addresses the recipient's Qi (pronounced "chee"),- or energy - including the body, mind, and spirit. It is believed that discomfort and disease are caused by blockages in the flow of qi along the body's energetic pathways. Stimulation of points along these pathways can open blockages and ultimately treat the underlying causes of many illnesses and discomforts including, but not limited to:
  • Allergies
  • Anxiety
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Digestive Problems
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches and Migraines
  • Infertility
  • Insomnia
  • Menopausal Discomfort
  • Menstrual Discomfort
  • Pain
  • Sinusitis
  • Stress and emotional Upheaval
Acupuncture is also very effective in preventing disease and in the support of immune system health, and with all facets of pregnancy and delivery.

Many people try Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine as a “last resort” to serious and complex medical problems and find that it can help them when other treatments could not. 

Acupuncture is also often used as a preventative medicine. Many people see their acupuncturist only 2-4 times a year for a “tune up” or “balancing” treatment. This can prevent disease and promote health, energy and vitality.

Our acupuncturist, Carey Velenchenko, will have to look at the onset of your condition and see what your constitutional diagnosis is to determine if Oriental Medicine can help you.  Each case is unique and it would be difficult to determine how effective acupuncture will be for you without a full assessment.  Please contact our office to schedule an initial consultation: or 952.314.7035
