The intent of acupuncture therapy is to promote health and alleviate pain and suffering. The method by which this is accomplished, though it may seem strange and mysterious to many, has been time tested over thousands of years and continues to be validated today.
The perspective from which an acupuncturist views health and sickness hinges on concepts of "vital energy," "energetic balance" and "energetic imbalance." Just as the Western medical doctor monitors the blood flowing through blood vessels and the messages traveling via the nervous system, the acupuncturist assesses the flow and distribution of this "vital energy" within its pathways, known as "meridians and channels".
The acupuncturist is able to influence health and sickness by stimulating certain areas along these "meridians". Traditionally these areas or "acupoints" were stimulated by fine, slender needles. Today, many additional forms of stimulation are incorporated, including herbs, electricity, magnets and lasers. Still, the aim remains the same - adjust the "vital energy" so the proper amount reaches the proper place at the proper time. This helps your body heal itself.
Acupuncture is just one form of therapy used within the coherent system of healing known as Oriental Medicine. Oriental Medicine includes herbology, physical therapy, dietetics and special exercises (such as Tai Chi and Qi Gong), and is a complete medical system unto itself and is not another branch of modern Western medicine. Acupuncture evolved from principles and philosophies unique to Oriental thinking and Oriental Medicine, and is most effectively applied when done in accordance with those principles.

Welcome to the Roselle Center for Healing
I highly recommend the Roselle Center for Healing for anyone with a chronic disease or seeking to improve their health.
After meeting Dr. Tom Roselle, DC at a Town Hall meeting, I made an appointment for a spinal cord/brain injury that resulted in Autonomic Dysfunction (POTS).
For the last ten years, I was fainting/passing out many times a day, had liable blood pressure, gastroparesis, neuropathy and severe pain.
My first appointment was with Dr. Tom Roselle, DC. His understanding of dysfunction of the body and its causes are exceptional. He took the time that was needed, explained the diagnosis and treatment plan in detail. I also saw Dr. Scott Lamp, Sue Roselle for nutrition, and Dr. Stephanie Pina for acupuncture-all very knowledgeable. The staff is welcoming and professional. The waiting room is calm and comfortable.
My health has significantly improved because of the Roselle Center for Healing. I was bedridden. I no longer pass out. I needed IV's and now I can eat and enjoy food. I used a walker and now I walk unaided. This past weekend, I hiked four miles! My many thanks to the Roselle Center for Healing-you have changed my life!
