PAIN

Acupuncture is widely known as an effective treatment for all kinds of physical pain. Musculoskeletal pain conditions--neck, jaw/TMJ, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, finger/thumb, carpal tunnel, low back, sciatica, hip, knee, ankle, foot/plantar fasciatis, toe and more. Whether it’s due to arthritis, bursitis, tendinitis, autoimmune diseases or other conditions such as Morton’s Neuroma, Baker’s cysts, De Quervain’s Tenosynovitis, etc, acupuncture can help your body hurt less so that you can move more!  Our treatment data shows that many of our patients are able to reduce or eliminate pain medications and sometimes even avoid surgery when they’ve been treated with acupuncture.

INFERTILITY

For both men and women, Acupuncture helps by addressing problems that affect fertility such as an under-functioning thyroid (hypothyroidism) or over-functioning thyroid  (hyperthyroidism). Acupuncture is the insertion ultra-thin and sterile needles into specific  acupuncture points on the body which reside on channels or meridians; these are pathways in both the exterior and interior of the body. These points, when needled, can regulate the way in which the body functions.

Acupuncture helps to gently regulate hormones and can be used as a stand alone treatment or concurrently with fertility treatments such as Clomid, IUI and IVF to boost chances of conceiving.  It’s also beneficial for stress reduction and overall health, and can relieve the uncomfortable side-effects of fertility medications.  

FERTILITY SUPPORT

Acupuncture can increase fertility by reducing stress, increasing blood flow to the reproductive organs and balancing the endocrine system, according to several studies and medical research, acupuncture helps to keep the normal flow of this energy unblocked, thereby increasing a couple's chances of conceiving.

STRESS

In our modern, fast-paced world, who doesn’t experience some degree of stress?  Whether it’s related to work, school, family, health problems or rush hour traffic, most people feel themselves experiencing some stress and tension.  For many people, stress can be the root of other troubles such as insomnia, muscle tension and digestive problems.  Acupuncture is awesome for stress relief!  It calms the nervous system, and as it works to reduce your stress, it can help to improve other stress-related symptoms, too.

ANXIETY AND POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER (PTSD)

– Much like stress, anxiety and PTSD are big challenges for many people.  Some people experience panic attacks, difficulty sleeping, a racing heart and/or inability to focus.  Acupuncture is excellent for relieving anxiety, calming the “fight or flight” response and reducing associated symptoms.

INSOMNIA

Whether it’s difficult to fall asleep or stay asleep, we’ve got some great points for you!  Acupuncture is generally helpful for sleep, and there are specific points that we use for particular sleep problems (such as stress related or menopausal related sleep disturbances).  Many of our patients who don’t even request treatment for sleep mention to us at follow-up appointments that they’ve been sleeping better after receiving acupuncture.  If you’ve been having difficulty sleeping, definitely give acupuncture a try!

 HEADACHES & MIGRAINES 

We’ve seen many patients who were experiencing debilitating migraines experience positively dramatic results with acupuncture.  Some patients who have missed days of work or leisure time, forced to go lay down in a quiet dark room, have been able to avoid those types of days and live happier, more productive lives when they receive acupuncture on a regular basis.  Acupuncture can help reduce the frequency and severity of migraines and other headaches, such as tension headaches and sinus headaches, as well.

 ALLERGIES

Seasonal and environmental allergy symptoms such as sinus congestion and pressure, runny nose, sneezing and itchy/watery eyes can be alleviated with acupuncture.  It can be used for prevention/maintenance as well as for symptom reduction when the season/exposure is at its peak.

WOMEN'S HEALTH

Pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS) is a common gynecological disorder which affects most women at some point in the life.

Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous growths in or around the womb. They are one of the most common gynecological problems, affecting as many as 1 in 3 women of childbearing age.

 

Menopause affects every woman at middle age. Over time, her periods will become less regular and eventually stop.

Endometriosis--According to traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) theory, endometriosis is normally due to a condition known as blood stasis. This causes it to collect in one area where it tends to thicken and clot, leading to pain.

ACUPUNCTURE FACE-LIFT

Known as Natural Face Lift! The concept of this non-surgical cosmetic treatment is to obtain natural younger and healthy skin, minimize fine lines and wrinkles only by using the finest and hair-like needles to stimulate the meridian in order to increase the blood circulation, relax or tighten the facial muscles, enhance collagen production and tone for a vital and youthful facial appearance. 

WEIGHT LOSS

Acupuncture fosters mind-body connection, which is to say: acupuncture can help us listen to our bodies more closely. Our patients often tell us that they feel more in touch with what their bodies want after they’ve had acupuncture on a regular basis, this can result in healthier food choices, and help with your healthy diet and control over eating.  

HAIR LOSS

According to Chinese medicine, the quality of the hair relates to the sufficient amount of qi, blood and kidney energy within the body. The kidneys control the nourishment of the hair. When the body has an insufficiency of qi, blood and kidney energy, hair loss results. Acupuncture improves qi and blood flow within the body, and strengthening the kidneys. Applying acupuncture directly to the scalp, the needles puncture key points of your head to improve blood circulation and distribution of the energy flow. It stimulates and increases nourishment of the hair follicles, as well as particular nerves and blood vessels of the head, and promotes healthy and new hair growth.

FIBROMYALGIA

Experiencing widespread chronic pain is very challenging.  Acupuncture is very good at pain management and reduction.  We focus on generalized pain and also use points to target any particularly bad spots.  Regular acupuncture alleviates the discomforts of fibromyalgia  and can also help improve mood and sleep, so you feel a sense of overall wellness.

DIGESTIVE SYMPTONS

Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Acid Reflux/GERD, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and other digestive symptoms – Digestive problems can be uncomfortable and embarrassing.  Acupuncture can help regulate and improve digestive function so you feel more comfortable, less distracted by symptoms and better able to enjoy life.
