• What Acupuncture Treats

    East-Asian medicine (EAM) is a system of healthcare that has been proven to treat many ailments, from the common cold to chronic pain to psycho-emotional disorders. As practitioners we are rigorously trained to identify patterns of disharmony rather than rely solely on Western diagnosis - meaning no two treatments are alike even if the diagnosis is the same. We treat the patient in front of us, as they are today, paying close attention to the physiological signs your body is giving about what it needs to get back to balanced health. Because of EAM's pattern-based approach to diagnosis and treatment, it is a strong complement to Western medicine interventions as EAM supports the body's ability to assimilate pharmaceuticals and recover from medical procedures.

     

    As an East-Asian Medicine practitioner, I help you identify and treat the patterns that are contributing to your current health condition. Through my acupuncture practice I provide internal medicine healthcare as well as specialized care for autoimmune-related dermatology, gastroenterology, and rheumatology. These are characterized by chronic, inflammatory flare-ups with periods of remissions. Since autoimmune conditions take years to manifest in the body, I help to identify and treat the patterns that are tell-tale signs of the development of an autoimmune condition or an impending flare-up of a pre-existing one.
