Acupuncturists receive a unique combination of eastern and western medicine education. A board certified acupuncturist is educated in anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, oriental medicine, herbology, and drug interactions, to name a few. This blend in perspective enables an acupuncturist to apply natural holistic therapies to help heal common conditions that might otherwise be treated with drugs or other more invasive methods.
Acupuncture is a very gentle therapy. Not only is it relaxing, but many patients actually fall asleep during their sessions!
Acupuncture is also fantastic for treating patients in severe discomfort who feel like they are too sore or in too much pain to be touched.
Acupuncture can treat a very wide range of conditions. Patients see an acupuncturist for physical issues such as neck and back pain, headaches, sciatica, frozen shoulder, tendonitis, sports injuries and many others.
Acupuncture may also be helpful at treating symptoms such as high blood pressure, anxiety, insomnia, depression, infertility, and other physiological imbalances.
