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

I don't like needles, but my husband had been bugging me for a long time to try acupuncture for my plantar fasciitis. Sheri was recommended by a friend and I went. With Sheri's touch, I did not even feel the needles and within 4-5 treatments my PF was gone. Very happy patient. Then I went back to Sheri for knee pain and swelling and after a few sessions I found relief. I am so glad I have found this non-invasive method for healing. Sheri is pretty awesome.

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!

However, not only does acupuncture treat sick persons, but it also can benefit healthy people! It aids proper digestion and blood circulation, brightens eyesight, keeps skin smooth, helps the body in getting rid of extra body fat and thus helps people to have happier and longer lives.

    About

    I am a board-certified acupuncturist with experience in needling, Chinese herbal therapy, cupping, moxibustion, and nutritional counseling. Chinese medicine is a complete system of healing, and I have helped clients with a variety of issues, including diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and arthritis. I have also helped clients with pain management, bell's palsy, thyroid conditions, gastrointestinal conditions, migraines, and sleeping issues. I am passionate about helping people help themselves. Chinese medicine is a safe, non-addictive therapy that uses the body's healing mechanisms in order to resolve dysfunction and disease. Improper nutrition, the environment and stress contribute to a slow and often unnoticed state of dysfunction. Allergies, aches and pains, indigestion, weight gain and inconsistencies in sleeping patterns become the "new normal." These seemingly age-related issues are actually signals that your body is not in an optimal state of health. With time, these minor issues may transform into life-changing conditions, such as, diabetes, high blood pressure, arthritis, IBS and ultimately heart disease. Taking care of small changes now will prevent life-altering problems in the future. I look forward to assisting in any way that I am able.

    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.
