I incorporate Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Functional Medicine, Genetics, MTHFR, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching. I also address environmental toxicity (heavy metals etc.) and cell inflammation in my assessments and treatments. In additional to internal organ dysfunction I hold a specialization in Acupuncture Orthopedics from the American Acupuncture Academy. It's long been known that Eastern medicine melds easily with Western principles for fertility and pregnancy treatments, but I take it a step further by incorporating DNA science, genetics and MTHFR into my practice for women who want to become pregnant and deliver healthy babies.

Acupuncture in Brentwood, Los Angeles - 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. Brentwood, Los Angeles 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.
