My decision to study natural medicine sprang from my amazement at the human body’s adaptability and a desire to help it heal. Balancing nutrition, managing stress and identifying your specific exercise therapy are all essential building blocks for a foundation of health. It's through these therapies that we can manipulate the delicate mechanics of the body’s physiology. Autoimmune diseases, women’s health, mental health, and other chronic illnesses can all be greatly affected by each individual’s health needs and restrictions. Dr. Licciardo believes that optimal health and well being should be accessible to everyone and is dedicated to supporting all of her patients on that journey.

Acupuncture in Putnam - 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. Putnam 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.
