I am often asked, “What does acupuncture treat?”

To answer this question, it is important to remember that acupuncture (Traditional Chinese Medicine) is a complete Medical system, designed to treat an entire population for everything that ailed them. One of the most powerful things about this unique Medical system is that we diagnose according to an individual’s state of being, at a particular moment in time. Unlike Western biomedicine, we don’t treat the disease – we treat the person.

I have years of experience successfully treating people for concerns that their Medical Doctors were not able to help them with, because they were unable, using the allopathic biomedical model, to confirm a specific diagnosis of disease or injury. With our Traditional Chinese methods of diagnosis, we are able to discern and treat the imbalances that are causing a patient’s symptoms, and thus alleviate them.

Give me a call. I look forward to speaking with you, and determining if I can be of help!
