"Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? Can you relate to the following? 1) Your doctor finds nothing wrong with you. 2) Your doctor only offers drugs and surgery with serious side effects, and you want to explore other options. 3) You've tried drugs and surgery. Yet, you’re still not better. 4) You worry about your reliance on medications with long term side effects and want the chance to decrease your symptoms, so you doctor can decrease your dosages. Acupuncture can often help when conventional medicine has reached its limits. If you want a drug-free, natural solution without dangerous side effects, I'm here to help you!"

Acupuncture in Frederick - 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. Frederick 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.
