My goal in treatment is to help you find YOUR path to healing with a personalized treatment. I have learned that NO ONE is the same; you may have the same symptoms but each of our bodies are unique. The techniques I utilize are done to find the specific treatment modalities and acupuncture points that will resolve your specific concerns and help your body be brought into balance. I practice a combination of Japanese Kiiko style, Traditional Chinese Medicine, 5 Element and Trigger Point Acupuncture. I utilize a unique Japanese style which I learned from world renowned Master Kiiko Matsumoto.

If you are tired of health problems you can't get rid of with conventional medicine, such as Chronic Headaches, Low back Pain, Arthritis, Allergies, Insomnia, etc...? You may have found an answer with Acupuncture. Typically 4 to 12 hair-like thin needles are placed on selected Acupoints along the channels running throughout one's body to open up and remove blockages. And then the flow of Qi & Blood get restored in balance to reduce pain or relieve symptoms. Many of my patients experience changes from the first treatment. Check Testimonials from my patients on my website www.BioAcupuncture.com

I believe that each choice we make is part of a complex framework and there is no choice too small or insignificant to create a change.

I am passionate about acupuncture because of what it has done for me personally, and the positive results that I have witnessed for so many of my patients. It is important to me as your practitioner, to provide a treatment plan that is unique to you, and supports your health goals. I usually ask that you commit to 3 treatments. Generally, results are experienced by then. At that time we will re-evaluate and determine which course of action is best.

United Acupuncturists
If you have health insurance coverage with United, or you're looking for United Healthcare Acupuncturists in 12590 (or 12590 Acupuncturists who accept United Healthcare), please contact these Acupuncturists and confirm that they are either in-network with United are or can help you with your United Healthcare coverage.

Acupuncture in 12590 - 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. 12590 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.
