Acupuncture, and Eastern Medicine more generally, address your whole being, not just the part of you that may be hurting. In other words, I will look for the cause of your pain and dis-ease, rather than simply treating your symptoms.

  • Most people don't know that you can see an acupuncturist for most anything you would visit a primary care provider for. In fact, in several states throughout the U.S. acupuncturists are considered primary healthcare providers, including California where I received my medical degree. It is within our scope of practice to assess medical conditions and give you a referral to a western medical doctor when appropriate.
  • These days acupuncturists are fairly well known for providing pain relief in cases of acute or chronic pain. Accordingly, in the wake of the opioid epidemic it is becoming more common for medical doctors to refer their patients to an acupuncturist for pain relief. But why?  Well, because most often it works better than anagelsics and narcotics, and has no complicating side effects!
  • But, acupuncture can be used to foster greater structural balance and core alignment.
  • Acupuncture & CranioSacral Therapy together can also promote a stronger, more resilient immune response to viral and bacterial assault from the environment.

Some acupuncturists, like myself, combine acupuncture with other therapies. Because my primary occupation for the past 50 years centered around massage and bodywork, an acupuncture session with me may include CranioSacral and Visceral therapies, or even Acupressure. These modalities enhance the aspect of acupuncture that effects the fascial system deep within the body. By making contact with the fascial system I can facilitate an unwinding process of long-held restrictions deep within the connective tissue matrix. Connective tissue restrictions are a pathology that affect not only the structure, but the central nervous system and organ systems throughout the body as well. Once energy is released from the connective tissue matrix it can become available for use at higher more efficient levels of function. This combination of modalities can effect structural balance, strength, flexibility, and facilitate more coordinated ease of movement.

Traditional Medicine in a Modern World

Eastern Medicine which includes acupuncture, is pulling from a rich and deep history of traditional medical knowledge dating back nearly 2500 years (when the first written record of Chinese Medicine showed up on the scene in the Huang Di Nei Jing, aka the Yellow Emperor’s Inner Classic). Because of the longevity of tradition medicine, the tools and approach we implement are very different than modern conventional medicine.

Although we can read imaging reports and interpret blood work, we may also take your pulse, look at your tongue and palpate different regions of your body, in order to help us better understand underlying constitutional patterns of imbalance that may be at the root of your trouble.

Even though it is important for me to hear about your symptoms, initially we will spend time talking about your childhood, family relationships, work life, hobbies, interests and your hopes and fears, which helps me see the bigger picture of your life and treat you as a whole person. And, even though my credential is in acupuncture, I may offer suggestions about nutrition, forms of movement, herbal remedies, nutritional supplements, meditation, Nature walks and other lifestyle modifications.

Either way, we work to uncover the story of how you got to where you are now in an effort to help you paint a more complete understanding of where you’d like to be.
