Acupuncture Treatment

What is Acupunture?

The use of very fine needles to stimulate energetic points within the body in order to facilitate the free and healthy flow of Qi.

My Treatment Style

Usually I gravitate to a Japanese style of acupuncture, utilizing just a few needles at the head, wrists and ankles. (Though there are times I incorporate needles at the forearms and lower legs.) During the treatment, I also administer a little bit of light anma and shiatsu (Japanese medical massage) to facilitate communication between the needles, the central nervous system (from a biomedical perspective), the organ systems and channels (from a Chinese medical perspective), and any painful areas (for instance the neck and back).

If applicable, I also suggest simple stretches and exercises (including Medical Qigong exercises, if this is of interest to the patient) to help accentuate the patient’s healing process.
