I am a western physician with a holistic background for many years. I am a yoga teacher, have many trainings with the American Holistic and Integrative Medicine Society, am certified in Ayurveda, and am a diplomate of the American Board of Medical Acupuncture. I find acupuncture to be an endlessly flexible and exciting healing modality. I then add in the needed nutritional advice, yoga stretches, supplement advice, whatever is needed.
Acupuncture is gentle, subtle healthcare which is amazingly efficacious for chronic pain and/ or acute injury, anxiety and depression, gastrointestinal issues, infertility, migraine or other headaches.
This patient pictured above had an acute sprained ankle which responded to acute injury treatment.
The picture to the left represents a patient who has received acupuncture for several years for a chronic pain syndrome. Other modalities such as yoga stretches and diet changes are especially important in the patients expressing chronic pain.
Each visit lasts one hour, 15 minutes. In my private office, you can expect total attention to your wellbeing and have your questions addressed. This session includes a physical exam--Chinese-Style--as well as a western medical assessment of your problem or interest. There will be acupuncture which, as applicable, can include electroacupuncture and/or ear acupuncture, which I find a particularly efficacious modality. Scalp acupuncture is a frequent added procedure as well, as applicable.
Price for private session: $100
depending on group size, probably 10-15/person
Another enjoyable way to receive acupuncture is in a community setting, with a group of people. This is good for treatments that do not require any disrobing and are more peripheral. Examples would be anxiety/depression, insomnia, substance use disorders.
