"In addition to acupuncture, I do a great deal of hands-on treatment. This includes energy work (such as Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, and Qi Gong), shiatsu, and gentle osteopathic-type manipulation. With these techniques, I can be more effective than I could be with needles alone, especially for musculoskeletal conditions. I am in direct contact with the patient's body and energy systems. I stay with the patient for the entire treatment; I don't just put in some needles and leave. Normally I spend an hour or more with each patient."

Acupuncture in Placitas - 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. Placitas 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.
