The Clinic

Tucson Arizona

Desert Sands Acupuncture clinic brings a soothing, tranquil part of the southwest desert inside. As you relax during your treatment, you may expect peaceful music and the sound of water trickling down a saguaro fountain in a southwest background.  The inquisitive will enjoy viewing many shelves of natural Chinese herbs in clear glass jars. This helps create a more natural, comfortable healing environment- bringing a soothing part of nature in.

The five elements of Chinese medicine are present in the room- Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Wood. Together, the elements are thought to create a balanced state, just as acupuncturists strive for a balance state of the body and mind. The five elements are associated with the five main organ pairs in the body:

Fire (Heart and Small Intestine)

Earth (Stomach and Spleen)

Metal (Lung and Large Intestine)

Water (Kidney and Urinary Bladder)

Wood (Liver and Gall Bladder)

While waiting for your treatment to begin, feel free to wait in the front office or in the courtyard. And, complementary water and tea are available.
