Chinese medicine is a full stand-alone medical system that originated in China over 2000 years ago. There are many tools that can be used in Chinese medicine, including acupuncture, dietary therapy, herbal medicine, tui-na, fire cupping, moxabustion, qi gong, tai chi and more. We use acupuncture as our main modality, and use other methods when necessary.
Pain management is so successful with acupuncture that most insurance plans now cover it. We use a hybrid form of traditional acupuncture theory with modern myofascial release, using trigger point dry needling. We find this is the best method to get quick results for acute injuries as well as keeping chronic pain in check.
Migraines + Headaches
Those who suffer from migraines have experienced how debilitating daily life can be. Acupuncture offers drug-free migraine and headache relief that is free of side effects. This can be particularly helpful for migraines during pregnancy or for those trying to get pregnant. Acupuncture for migraines is often covered by insurance.
Fertility Support + Women's Health
So many of a woman's symptoms revolve around the menstrual cycle or lack thereof. Even a slight imbalance can result in symptoms like headaches and mood-swings to more serious fertility concerns.
If your are trying to conceive or have had problems staying pregnant in the past, we may be able to help you conceive and sustain a healthy pregnancy naturally. If you are working with your doctors using additional interventions such as IUI or IVF, we can help get your body prepared for these therapies, and hopefully lessen the amount of additional medications or number of procedures.
