It is my goal to create a presence in the treatment room in which every patient is truly heard. Back pain is never exactly the same for every individual and thus should not be treated with the same protocol. Environment, past history, lifestyle and other factors all play a role in how back pain "shows up" in your body. You can rest assured that you will be treated as an individual in every visit.

If you're looking for acupuncture for stress in Taneytown or for a Taneytown stress acupuncturist, or stress acupuncture Taneytown, these professionals provide stress help, stress treatment, stress management, stress therapy and stress relief. They include stress acupuncture Taneytown professionals, stress acupressure professionals, and stress acupuncturists. They can help with stress disorder, stress health, being stressed and stress anxiety.

Acupuncture in Taneytown - 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. Taneytown 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.
