I'm pretty fit, usually feel strong and capable of anything...out of nowhere I tweaked my back and could barely move. Scary and debilitating! My PPO insurance listed Amy at the top of the suggested list and at the advice of my primary physician I reluctantly tried acupuncture for the first time. Amazing! 12 hours later, after cupping and gentle needles I felt healed! What a relief! (btw, I was fearful of the needles but it wasn't painful or stressful at all!) Amy is a miracle worker, she is someone who clearly cares about her patients and their well-being. Most services seem clinical and you feel like a number. Amy invited me into her home office, communicated with me and really listened to my pain and symptoms. She spent additional time with me and followed up the next day to check on my progress. I feel incredibly grateful that I found Amy listed and was able to slide into a same-day appointment. I'm following the stretches and advice she gave me and will become a repeat customer. Highly recommend; she not only helped me but she also taught me ways to stretch, gave me a daily mantra & I'm now more aware of my body and how to care for it than ever before.

Dr. Cho is polite and knows his profession well. He explained to me what he was going to do before he did it. He then explained each needle point as to the relation of my sciatica pain. I am feeling FANTASTIC as a result of his acupuncture treatment. I am going to recommend him to all my friends.

Before entering therapy with Flo Lawrence I had experienced acupuncture and massage as pleasant but temporary efforts towards health and bodily comfort. Under Flo's skilled and professional care I have experienced a lasting sense of well being due to her understanding that healing is not accomplished when only one part of the body receives attention. Her strong beliefs in the powerful healing potential of the natural world, her generous loving spirit, her profound knowledge of anatomy, and her precise focus on me as a whole person has re-energized my life. As her manipulations of my body began to ease pain and stiffness, the totality of her spirit has taught me the inseparability of my pain from my heart and mind. With pain minimized, my senses are open again to the energy of life; with that openness pain retreats even further. Flo's touch is sure, her spirit is a balm, and her attention to me as an individual is indispensable. The hours spent with Flo have given me a healthier body and made me a better person and unified my powers to face each day with hope and joy. Bonnie Siebert

Carlo is one of those under the radar acupuncturists. He has amazing intuitive sense and a wealth of knowledge of anything health related. I've had acupuncture numerous times, trying out different people for my neck and lower back pain. Nothing was working until I saw Carlo. Carlo is now my go to acupuncturist. I feel great after every session, No more pain after that! It was such a relief, I thought I would never see the end of it. Anyone who hasn't experienced acupuncture would be in the best hands with Carlo. He is awesome to work and extremlu friendly and I always look forward to discovering something new when I see him.

DR. John Barrett has improved my quality of life greatly! I have been suffering with chronic migraines for years and I have seen a number of specialists. I have been seeing Dr. Barrett for about three months now and the migraines not only have decreased significantly in severity but have decreased in frequency. I am so thankful for the opportunity to live my life without the fear of a spontaneous migraine. The office is always clean and Dr. Barrett's office staff is so kind and helpful. I have a great experience every time I come in for an appointment. I recommend Dr. Barrett highly to anyone who would like to try an alternative to pain medications and other methods.

    I came into the clinic because I was experiencing horrible back pain. Sunny cured me using massage and acupuncture. She walked me through the whole process since she knew I'm terrified of needles and the whole procedure didn't hurt at all! Not only that, my back is doing way better! Thanks Sunny!

    About

    We offer medical services specifically tailored to meet each patient's individual needs. Nutritional, herbal, homeopathic and dietary therapies are integrated into our approach to health care, so that the full benefits of prevention, natural therapies and treatment of symptoms are naturally achieved. Services offered include acupressure, acupuncture, cupping, ear seeding, dietary therapy, herbal medicine, moxibustion, preventive care and tui na. In the Western world, Chinese medicine is called alternative, complement, comprehensive, holistic and natural medicine. Chinese medicine is different from Western medicine in terminology, treatment methods and results. Instead of using an artificial drug to replace or mimic the function of some organ or suppress certain chemicals to cover the symptoms of a disease, Chinese medicine enlists the body's own defenses to reverse underlying pathological conditions and restore the body to normal function and harmony. Acupuncture and medical herbs heal diseases rather than just treating the symptoms. Our goal is to heal any disease before it is too late. Acupuncture and herbal medicine have been practiced in China over thousands of years. We combine Chinese and Western medical knowledge together to treat diseases. No matter what disease you are diagnosed with, acupuncture and herbal medicine can be used as your main treatment method.

    How does acupuncture work?

    Acupuncture works by restoring the body’s natural healing powers. Acupuncture involves placing very thin needles into specific points on the body to influence the body’s energy flow and help the body heal itself in a natural way. In traditional Chinese medicine, acupuncture is linked to the belief that disease is caused by disruptions to the flow of energy (called qi in Chinese) in the body. The acupuncturist places whisper-thin needles into the arms, back, neck and other areas where the chi (or energy flow) has been blocked. The acupuncture needles stimulate points on or under the skin called acupuncture points or acupressure points, releasing this qi. These pathways — called “meridians” — become re-stimulated by the needles to bring blood and healing to the body. In Western medicine, acupuncture has been proved to relieve pain and help provide healing and relief from painful symptoms associated with everything from headaches to asthma to cancer. Western medicine sees the use of the needles as a way to stimulate the body’s nervous system, thereby prompting healing.

    What are the benefits of acupuncture?

    There are many proven health benefits of acupuncture, whether you’re seeking short-term relief or need help with a chronic health condition. This alternative healing is likely why millions of adults nationwide get acupuncture treatments each year. Acupuncture provides pain relief, can help speed the body’s natural healing process, and has also been proved to have positive outcomes on mental health concerns such as depression. Acupuncture can also help relieve discomfort associated with chronic and terminal illnesses. For example, acupuncture has been proved to be effective in helping cancer patients manage pain, nausea and vomiting, fatigue, hot flashes, xerostomia (dry mouth), neuropathy (nervous system problems), anxiety, depression and sleep disturbances, according to Cancer.gov. Acupuncture is a safe and effective alternative to opioids and other pain medications, which not only are hard on the body but also present the risk of addiction. The U.S. Department of Health & Human Services found that people had less pain or were better able to manage pain when they received acupuncture as part of their health treatment.

    What is an acupuncture treatment?

    An acupuncture treatment is a type of integrative health care session that uses needles (and sometimes heat and/or electrical stimulation) to stimulate the body’s nervous system to begin a healing process. Long practiced in traditional Chinese medicine and other Eastern cultures, acupuncture has gained widespread acceptance and use as a complementary and integrative part of healing in Western medicine. During an acupuncture treatment, the patient lies in a relaxed position on a table that is very similar to a massage table. The acupuncturist, having done a diagnosis of health concerns and determined a course of treatment, will insert thin stainless steel needles into the prescribed acupuncture points. These points are determined by the patient’s health needs. The practitioner may gently manipulate the needles to trigger a healing response in the body. Typically there is no pain associated with the treatment. A session may use anywhere from 6-30 needles or more, depending on what illness is being treated. The needles can remain in place for 5-30 minutes, with 15 minutes being a common time. Acupuncture treatments are often prescribed in a series, based on patient need.

    How often do you need to get acupuncture?

    How often you need acupuncture really depends on the health condition that is being treated. Acute issues such as a pulled groin or short-term digestion problems will likely require fewer treatments than a chronic disease such as some types of cancer. Dr. Lee Hullender Rubin, speaking with the Acupuncture Now Foundation, likens acupuncture sessions to a “dose” of medication prescribed by a doctor. If you have a condition like high blood pressure and are prescribed a medication to treat it, you wouldn’t take one dosage and be done. Likewise, for ongoing health conditions, Dr. Hullender Rubin explains that more than one session of acupuncture is likely in order. “For pain-related diseases, it seems 12 to 20 sessions is a reasonable intervention to achieve stable results,” says Dr. Hullender Rubin. For more acute (short-term) conditions, Dr. Tony Chon says that treatment might consist of two to six acupuncture sessions.
