"As a Functional Medicine Physician and Certified Acupuncturist, I treat patients who have difficult symptoms with natural treatments to restore balance, reduce stress, and build the body's reserve. Together with my staff of licensed acupuncturists, I utilize Acupuncture and Frequency Specific Microcurrent to accomplish this. I would describe this as a massage with gloves that conduct a tiny electric current, which you don't feel. Together these treatments are very powerful in relief of pain and stress. I also prescribe nutrient protocols based on laboratory testing. Natural anti-inflammatory supplements can help pain."
