Dr. Onofrey's family practice offers the following services:


Acupuncture is based upon the belief that living beings have a vital energy called qi (pronounced chee).  Qi circulates through specific energy pathways called meridians.   There are 14 main meridians in the body, each connected to specific organs and glands. An imbalance in the flow of qi can cause an imbalance in the body, mind, or spirit resulting in pain or disease.  Acupuncture creates the environment for the body to rebalance and heal itself.  Very thin sterile, one-time use needles are inserted in specific acupuncture points.   Gentle physiological and chemical responses occur, including the release of endorphins, a natural biochemical which reduces pain, improves and heals many conditions, and enhances a state of physical, mental and emotional well-being. 

Non-needle techniques are also available.


Call Dr. Onofrey for a free 15 minute telephone consultation to discuss your condition.

Nourishment for your body and soul!
