My specialty is the treatment of chronic and resistant conditions involving soft tissues that do not respond well to pharmaceutical or Western medicine treatments, including Physical Therapy and Chiropractic.

Conditions that respond well to acupuncture and Chinese herbs are listed below.  Please call the clinic for a FREE consult if you want to get well.

★ Arthritic Syndromes
★ Musculoskeletal Pain
★ Migraines and Tension Headaches
★ Complex and Undefined (e.g., idiopathic) Pain Syndromes
★ Collapse related disorders (e.g., post stroke recovery, organ prolapse, Bell’s palsy)
★ Immune System syndromes. e.g., Allergies, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia.
★ Psycho-emotional syndromes. e.g., Post Trauma Stress Disorders (PTSD), Depression/Anxiety.
★ G.I. syndromes. e.g., GERD, Irritable Bowel Disease, Chronic Diarrhea, Constipation.
★ Women’s Health e.g., Dysmenorrhea, Uterine Fibroids, PMS, Menopause.

I use TuiNa (acupressure, Chinese medical/orthopedic massage and stretching) with acupuncture techniques for external and musculoskeletal conditions. This combination is particularly effective for most chronic muscle tension patterns and benefits are usually experienced within 6-10 treatments.

In addition, I use Internal Medicine‒ i.e., diet/nutrition therapies, Chinese herbs‒ for the treatment of chronic and resistant conditions and to modify constitutional patterns.  These conditions usually require more extended treatment and usually require some lifestyle changes also.

Many formulas in Chinese medicine are hundreds, if not thousands, of years old and their actions and effects on the body are reasonably well understood.  All herbal preparations used in the clinic are made under current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) guidelines, similar to Western pharmaceuticals.
