Back Pain/Neck Pain/Sciatica and Neuropathies
These are conditions I treat every day in my clinic with great success! Acupuncture works to reduce pain and inflammation, increasing circulation while promoting tissue regeneration.
Knee and Shoulder Issues
Including sports injuries, as well as pre and post operative treatments to reduce pain and speed up recovery time.
Wrist Pain/Hand Pain/Carpal Tunnel
These conditions (both acute or chronic) are commonly treated in my clinic, responding well to a combination of acupuncture, Gua Sha, and cupping.
Migraines and General Head Pain
I use a combination of Acupuncture and manual therapies along with herbal formulas and lifestyle support to address these conditions.
Head Pain, Jaw Pain, and Post Concussion
Acupuncture is a very important and effective tool in treating these conditions. Acupuncture reduces the pain and inflammation while stimulating the micro-circulation necessary for a full recovery.
Stress, Anxiety, Depression, and Insomnia
Acupuncture offers natural relief for these conditions. Acupuncture is recognized by the World Health Organization as an effective and recommended therapy for depression, anxiety and insomnia. Some studies have found acupuncture to be just as effective as Prozac but with no side effects!
Fatigue and Poor Immune Function
These are conditions very commonly treated with acupuncture and herbal medicine. While I do not treat any infectious conditions in the clinic, I support my patients in building healthier more robust immune systems.
Sports Medicine and Acute Injury
Acupuncture effectively treats pain and injury by reducing inflammation, stimulating circulation and promoting a faster recovery. Research suggests that acupuncture activates natural painkillers in the brain and body.
One of my earliest internships was in a pediatric clinic where I was trained in the unique practice of treating infants and children. Oftentimes treatments consist of a variety of gentle, manual therapies much like massage. Rarely are needles used and only if the child is very comfortable with the idea. During a pediatric treatment I also teach the parents techniques that they can use at home.
Pre and Post Operative Acupuncture
Treatments assist in reducing pain and inflammation while encouraging repair and a more complete recovery.
One of my earliest specialties within Chinese medicine was working with digestive disorders. In Chinese medicine we consider digestive health to be one of the pillars of overall health and well being. I use a combination of acupuncture , manual therapy, along with diet, herbs and lifestyle support to assist my patients in healing from digestive issues.
Hemorrhoids and Organ Prolapses
Most people are surprised to learn that acupuncture is an effective treatment for hemorrhoids and organ prolapses (depending of course on the severity of the issue) and I have had many happy patients cancel scheduled surgeries after a series of treatments for prolapses.
