    Health Care with a History

Burton Moomaw, acupuncturist in Boone, NC

BURTON MOOMAW, L. AC.

Welcome to Burton Moomaw Acupuncture located in Boone, North Carolina.

Health is the natural state of the human being. As we live life this state is challenged by accidents, emotional insults, nutritional challenges, and environmental factors. In a healthy state our bodies have an inherent ability to heal themselves. When we become stressed, physically or emotionally, this ability is pushed to its limit and we may become sick.

Acupuncture is a medical practice based on traditional Chinese medicine which has been practiced in Asia for at least 3, 000 years. It is used to maintain health as well as treat acute and chronic illness. As an acupuncturist in our modern era, I am excited to experience the very real healing that can occur in patients when the ancient principles of diagnosis and treatment are employed. As your acupuncturist I will always do my best to meet your needs in a caring, professional way.

What Can Acupuncture Treat?
