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 healing path, seeking health and wellness when it is appropriate for them. I enjoy working with a variety 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.

Acupuncture in 97321 - 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. 97321 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.
