Hello-- I am a licensed acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist practicing in San Antonio. My approach is to address the acute issues while working to resolve any underlying causes and move toward optimum health. I use a variety of acupuncture styles- traditional Chinese acupuncture, 5-element, Richard Tan's balance method, Koryo(Korean hand therapy), and Auricular therapy in addition to Chinese herbs and techniques to use at home to get the best possible results for the patient. When acute and chronic issues are adequately dealt with, enhanced long term health and well being are the reward.

Acupuncture in 78006 - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. 78006 acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into the body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
