Welcome to our website!
Our mission ultimately is to relieve suffering and to
help all of our patients achieve a state of peace, harmony, balance and wellness. Acupuncture
and other aspects of traditional Chinese medicine offer ways of unlocking the body’s healing potential. Working
in collaboration with western medicine and other healing traditions, we are committed to offering the best treatments possible
for the benefit of our dear patients.
Why the name “Plum Blossom?” In China, plum blossoms are noted for appearing in late
winter, often on snow-laden branches. Chinese paintings are profoundly symbolic and plum blossoms
are a common theme. They represent strength, courage, faith and hope, all attributes that will help us to do and
to be our very best.
