I started going to Trey for back pain. I had an MRI and X-rays. I had physical therapy which seem to aggravate it. I also went to a chiropractor. I went to two different back specialists. The one told me to learn to live with it and the other doctor said there was nothing he could do at this time. I found out about Trey from a friend of mine. Between acupuncture and exercise therapy my back has been great. He has also treated me for sinus infections. I went to my family doctor and was given an antibiotic. After two weeks of taking the medicine I felt no better. I called Trey and had an acupuncture treatment and I had almost instant relief. After that experience I told Trey I would call him first before my doctor. He has kept me healthy with his winter maintenance treatments where he builds your immune system so your body can fight infections. Working in a personal care home you need that. Hot flashes have been a problem which he is helping me with. They have calmed down a lot since starting treatment. His exercise therapy has helped with knee, hip, and neck pain. It also keeps me more flexible than I would be without doing it. Sometimes my energy level is low and I feel really tired. He can treat you for that and you don't have to worry about side effects like you do when taking pills. He has even told me what foods to avoid or eat and what teas to drink for certain problems. It is amazing how he can tell what is going on with your body mentally and physically just by talking to you, checking your pulses, and looking at your tongue. If he can't figure something out he will research it until he does. . It has been six years since I first went to Trey and I highly recommend him for acupuncture and exercise therapy. Once you go to him for treatment you will ask your self why you didn't go sooner.

My work stands out from others because I care about my patients and I love what I do.


It can be rather frustrating to feel like you're out of options; however, my holistic approach may be a bit different than you've experienced. Acupuncture treats the whole you - body, mind, and spirit. My goal is to get to the root cause of your condition, and work on the symptoms that arise from it. On your first visit, I'll take a detailed health history, so that I can get a broad picture of what brings you to my office as well as your general health. I’ll ask a wide range of questions about your symptoms as well as your eating, exercise and sleep habits - essentially, anything that can give me a deeper insight into your current health status. Armed with knowledge about you and your particular condition and presenting symptoms, I’ll devise a treatment plan tailored for you and what you need to heal. I invite you to ask questions along the way and take an active role in your treatment so that together; we can strive to help you to alleviate your symptoms and feel your best. If you're not sure if acupuncture is right for you or if you'd like to learn more about how acupuncture can help you, please call my office to arrange a free consultation. I'm caring for the whole you.

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.
