Acupuncture is an ancient medical technique that originated in China and has been practiced for thousands of years. Acupuncture is recognized by the FDA as a professional medical practice. Yvette Arellano is our Doctor of Oriental Medicine. She is a licensed practitioner and is a current provider for BCBS, Presbyterian and United Healthcare insurances.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

TCM contains five different areas of medical practice; acupuncture, herbs, massage, lifestyle and nutritional counseling. These modalities may be used alone or in combination with one another when treating a patient. Dr. Arellano is adept in each area and has been practicing TCM with Lifetime Chiropractic since 2008.


The practice involves placing hair-thin needs in specific pressure points throughout the body. Pressure points are located within twelve bodily areas called meridians. Improper energy flow within meridians causes ailments such as depression. In fact, acupuncture is beneficial for many conditions:

  • Acupuncture stimulates and restores proper meridian energy flow and allows the body to utilize its natural self-healing capabilities, treating cases of depression or anxiety.
  • Acupuncture is a proven healing method for treating headaches, addictions, fibromyalgia, asthma, weight loss, infertility and arthritis.
  • Acupuncture is void of chemical side effects and is a safe way to promote wellness and relieve stress within the body.
