Health Professionals in Albany, OR
"I am a naturopathic physician and acupuncturist offering holistic family care aimed at helping kids and adults reach optimal wellness. I have a strength in helping individuals with chronic health complaints and also love teaching and helping patients work through acute illness naturally. I recognize you as a unique individual with your own health history and circumstances. I go above and beyond in my evaluations and treatments to address the underlying cause of your complaint(s); I create personalized natural treatment plans to treat you as an individual, not just your symptom. I am a practitioner who listens and cares."
"Acupuncture is an amazing form of medicine that has great potential for treating a wide range of issues. I have had great success in working with my patients on everything from hormonal imbalances to chronic aches and pains. It is especially powerful for sleep issues, anxiety, headaches, and stress."
"There are two broad areas I treat: 1. Pain - all kinds but especially successful with backs and shoulders. I have studied and use some non-needle pain relieving techniques like NST and Kaufman Technique. 2. Imbalances - I treat through nutrition and herbs various imbalances in the patient - blood sugar syndromes, adrenal weaknesses, thyroid problems, liver issues, digestive disorders, etc."
"All people are on their own path, seeking health and wellness when it is appropriate for them. I enjoy working with a wide array of people: avid healthy energetic types who know the benefits of alternative medicine, to those who are skeptical, uncertain and feeling they have no other options. I enjoy sharing and teaching people a new model of health & wellness. Healing isn't about fixing the symptom with a band-aid. Healing involves reducing pain and discomfort, addressing the cause, then assisting the mind/body/spirit accordingly. All aspects are addressed."
"I have studied and practiced many healing disciplines including naturopathy, herbs, homeopathy, Ayurveda, nutrition, Thai massage and yoga. I am most interested in psychoneuroimmunology--how the intellectual and emotional mind affects our nervous and immune systems. I work with the emotional body, helping people to understand their wounds and blockages and how these are manifested physically. I bring a grounded, peaceful and compassionate energy to each session."
