As a Naturopathic doctor and acupuncturist, I am able to blend the philosophies and treatments of Eastern and Western natural medicine. I offer the high standards of a primary care physician including lab work, clinical diagnosis and physical exams along with lifestyle counseling, nutrition, herbal therapy and acupuncture to optimize health. Teaching my patients techniques to care for themselves is something of great value to me. I respect the healing power of Nature and always try to treat the whole person as an individual. As a family practitioner, I see kids and adults, with conditions from trauma to Diabetes.

Acupuncture in Bend - 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. Bend 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.
