Allergies

When treating allergy with acupuncture, underlying imbalances within the body are addressed and a treatment plan is developed to relieve the acute symptoms of allergic rhinitis while also treating the root problems that are contributing to the body's reaction to allergens. Treatments often include dietary modification, the use of specifically chosen herbal formulas, and acupuncture.

Arthritis

Arthritis is one of the most common diseases in the United States (source: CDC).  Arthritis literally means joint inflammation. The term arthritis describes more than 100 rheumatic diseases and conditions that affect joints, the tissues surrounding the joint and other connective tissue. The location, pattern, and severity of symptoms can vary depending on the specific form of the disease. Arthritis is typically characterized by stiffness and pain in and around one or more joints. Symptoms can develop suddenly or gradually. Certain arthritic conditions can also involve the immune system and a variety of internal organs inside the body.

There are several factors that can contribute to arthritis. Causes include trauma to the joint, infection of the joint, or age. We consult with you to identify the root factors specific to your condition and formulate a custom, and holistic, treatment plan that targets the roots of your arthritis, tendinitis, or joint pain, not just the symptoms.  We utilize a combination of Chinese herbs and acupuncture to treat the root cause of your arthritis, tendinitis, or joint pain.

Back Pain

Acupuncture began in China more than 2,500 years ago. It involves inserting thin needles at certain points on the body. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the body has more than 2,000 of these points. They are connected by pathways or meridians, which create a flow of energy called Qi (pronounced “chee”). Stimulating these points is said to correct the imbalance of qi and improve the flow of energy. It helps relieve pain and improve health.

Infertility

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) has been used to treat infertility problems for over 3,000 years. TCM works to enhance fertility by restoring balance to the body and the internal systems responsible for regulating hormones. Research found acupuncture:

  • Increases blood flow to the uterus, thus thickening the uterine lining, which improves the chances of an ovum implanting on the uterine wall
  • Reduces anxiety, stress, and hormones secreted during stressful situations – such as cortisol – which significantly decreases fertility
  • Normalizes the systems that regulate ovulation, especially in women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
  • Positively affects the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, which plays a major role in fertility
  • Regulates the menstrual cycles

In addition, with male fertility acupuncture can improve the concentration, volume, and motility of sperm.

Migraine

Migraines can be so severe that they can cause loss of appetite, blurred vision, vertigo, nausea and vomiting. With western medicine’s approach, the usual treatment doctors recommend for migraine or chronic tension headaches is NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). For the occasional headache this may be an acceptable choice. But when used regularly, NSAIDs can produce secondary effects: upper gastrointestinal disorders (nausea, heartburn, diarrhea), liver stress, and may actually lead to “rebound” headaches. While over-the-counter pain medications can bring momentary relief, headaches cannot be treated or cured using these medications alone. Yet Western medicine doctors continue to treat headaches with a variety of drugs without giving much thought to the individual constitution, specific patterns, and lifestyle habits of the patient. This is a symptomatic approach at best meant to ease the pain headaches cause momentarily. Because migraine in Western medicine is considered a recurrent headache with unknown causes, there are no treatments meant to solve the root of the issue in order to cease migraine recurrence.

From the viewpoint of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), headaches and migraines are classified according to the overall condition of the patient, not only the nature of the headache. The diagnosis of TCM is the unique pattern differentiation of the clinical symptom-complexes, which represent specific pathological conditions that can be adjusted or reversed to physiological conditions by CM therapeutic techniques such as medicinal herbs, acupuncture and Qi Gong.

Muscle Aches

Acupuncture began in China more than 2,500 years ago. It involves inserting thin needles at certain points on the body. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the body has more than 2,000 of these points. They are connected by pathways or meridians, which create a flow of energy called Qi (pronounced “chee”). Stimulating these points is said to correct the imbalance of qi and improve the flow of energy. It helps relieve pain and improve health.

Natural Healing

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) employing techniques such as Acupuncture, Tui Na, Tai Chi, Qigong (Chi Kung), Herbal Medicines and Nutrition, offer natural healing. The concept is hollistic. It can improve recuperative power, enhance immunity, support physical and emotional health and improve overall function and well-being.

Neck Pain

Acupuncture began in China more than 2,500 years ago. It involves inserting thin needles at certain points on the body. According to traditional Chinese medicine, the body has more than 2,000 of these points. They are connected by pathways or meridians, which create a flow of energy called Qi (pronounced “chee”). Stimulating these points is said to correct the imbalance of qi and improve the flow of energy. It helps relieve pain and improve health.

OB-GYN

A woman’s body goes through many cycles in the course of a lifetime from the onset of puberty, to pregnancy, and finally menopause.  With years of menstruation in between, a woman’s body and hormones are in a constant state of change. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can restore balance at any stage of a woman’s life. TCM has been proven to have a positive effect on the hypothalamic-pituitary-ovarian axis, the body’s mechanism that is responsible for keeping the female reproductive system in balance.

Some of the many women’s health conditions that TCM treats are:

  • Amenorrhea (absent periods)
  • Dysmenorrhea (painful periods)
  • Irregular periods
  • Long periods
  • Heavy periods
  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS)
  • Perimenopause and Menopausal symptoms
  • Thyroid conditions
  • Endometriosis
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • Fibroids
  • Genital herpes
  • Genital warts (HPV)
  • Cervical dysplasia
  • Hormonal migraines
  • Chronic yeast infections
  • Urinary Tract infections (UTI)
