Acupuncturist, DOM, MSOM
Verified by HealthProfs.com Verified
"My treatment goal always includes healing the whole person, which includes the physical, the emotional and the spiritual. Each aspect is inherently dependent upon the others in order to maintain the balance of health. Regardless of the origin of symptoms, every aspect must be addressed and healed. My most influential teacher said, "Disease is a spirit with a message waiting to be heard." My specialty is listening to both what the patient has to say about their dis-ease as well as listening to the disease itself to understand what it needs in order for complete healing to occur."

Acupuncture in 87104 - 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. 87104 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.
