Dr. Callison L.Ac

Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine

Dr. Callison’s Philosophy

“The acupuncture needle is just a simple tool. It’s not adding anything to the body or taking anything away. It’s like a key. Our job is to pick the right locks to open. Chinese Medicine works by cueing the body to heal itself and most people have the capacity to do exactly that. This goes to show that the potential to heal is already within you; with a little push in the right direction great change can be achieved.”
