If we can't help, we don't treat. Feng-Ling believes in preventative health care and focuses his treatment plan on educating his patients on how to prevent and reverse their illnesses. As a patient, you will be given guidance from him on how to improve your overall health and prevent illness recurrence without using medications. Our philosophy is that herbs and supplements should be viewed as medical treatments and used only when needed, not for health maintenance. Therefore, you will not be pressured to take home a variety of supplements or herbs during your visit.

I work with people with a variety of different conditions including weight challenges, headaches/migraines, hormonal imbalances, pain, allergies, asthma, sinus problems, fatigue, addictions, infertility, immune deficiency (Lupus, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Epstein-Barr Virus, Fibromyalgia, etc.), arthritis, stroke, facial paralysis, Bell's Palsy, Tic Douloureax, sugar handling issues, depression, anxiety, Multiple Sclerosis, post-brain injuries and digestive problems...just to name a few. I thrive on the challenge of people with complex health problems. I love the "win" of helping the patient who has "tried everything" achieve vital wellness. That's what makes it exciting to come to work every morning!

Acupuncture in Idaho - 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. Idaho 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.
