"I've been involved with Oriental Medicine for more than 15 years. I am constantly reminded how remarkable our bodies are. I feel the body has it's own intelligence and knows how to heal itself but sometimes it forgets or needs a little impetus to get started in the healing process. I provide said impetus. I have an eclectic practice and have treated people for a wide variety of things, from severe 3rd/4th degree burns [enabling patient to avoid skin graft] to Carpal Tunnel Syndrome to facial rejuvenation and infertility."

Acupuncture in Leonardtown - 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. Leonardtown 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.
