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.    

Please do take a few minutes to explore our website and don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or wish to make an appointment. 

Thanks for visiting!
