Acupuncture is a several-thousand year old practice of inserting hair-thin needles a little bit past the skin in order to stimulate the body's metabolic processes, including its self-healing abilities. It doesn't necessarily mean that the needle will be placed where the pain is either, as a skilled acupuncturist will place needles in seemingly unrelated areas. The common mythical perception that you are going to end up looking like a porcupine is inaccurate. Rocco uses the minimum amount of the thinnest needles available, and employs predominantly Japanese Acupuncture Techniques, which are known to be very gentle.
Most people think that metabolism only has to do with how fast someone gains or loses weight. In fact, there are Millions of metabolic processes going on inside your body Every Second of Every Day Of Your Life!
Trillions of cells, enzymes, hormones, and nerve impulses are working hard to ensure the proper functioning of your vital organs; the regulation of your nervous system; digestion and the utilization of the nutrients from your food; the ability to generate healthy cells and tissues as well as to break down and get rid of unhealthy tissues and toxins; energy production, temperature regulation, and the list goes on!
The Metabolic Testing Rocco employs in his office utilizes a comprehensive series of scientifically-designed medical tests to determine which of your metabolic control systems are malfunctioning, as well as to specifically find out what you need in order to get your health back on track.
Don't worry, the tests are all painless!
This is the art and science of using food as your primary medicine, as well as recommending specific vitamins and nutritional supplements that have a solid track record of helping people with the same problems you are working to resolve.

Along with the acupuncture I provide, you are also getting an expert nutritionist at your service to coach and teach you which foods and vitamins will bring your health back- while you are eating many of the delicious foods that you already enjoy!
Yes, it works on animals too! Most tolerate the needles, and many animals enjoy getting acupuncture, and become noticably relaxed. Rocco has been trained as a Certified Animal Acupuncturist, and he is effective at resolving a number of issues (such as arthritis, asthma, digestive issues, behavioral problems and many other chronic degenerative conditions) that plague our 4-legged friends: Dogs, Cats, Horses, Rabbits, and Ferrets.
