I had Sarah work on me over a year ago for some generalized anxiety I was suffering from at the time. She really understood me and what I was going through, not many people actually do. She was incredibly competent and I would go see her again in a heartbeat...and you should too.

About

Ancient Chinese Medicine for Modern Day Healing Do you suffer from chronic pain or other ailments that conventional medicine and prescription drugs have failed to adequately address? If so, traditional Chinese medicine offers natural, safe, and drug-free alternatives such as acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine that can often provide relief when other methods have failed. My specialties are: * Pain management - arthritis, foot pain, joint pain, neck & shoulder pain, carpal tunnel, headaches * Stress management * Mental/emotional disorders - mild to moderate anxiety, depression * Gastrointestinal disorders - GERD, IBS, Crohn's Disease * Treating radiation/chemotherapy side effects * Bell's Palsy One of my greatest attributes as a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine is my ability to function as a partner in wellness. Oriental medicine is a holistic healing system. I strongly believe in the innate wholeness of each individual and the intrinsic healing capacity that lies within each of us. It is my genuine hope and desire to see every patient fulfill his or her highest potential in life, and it is an honor to be a part of each patient's individual journey.

About

A pain-free abundant life is your inherent right! I am a master-registered acupuncturist (N.C.C.A.), with 28+ years experience in alternative and (w)holistic medicine. I am a practitioner of acupuncture, herbal and biological medicine. My treatments deal with emotional and somatic re-patterning, detoxification and nutritional protocols, movement therapy, quantum biological medicine, and herbal therapy... to name few. What is Acupuncture Energetics? This system is a dynamic synergy of therapeutic modalities, which compliment each other and enhance the healing process. The core of the work is classical five-element acupuncture, with its emphasis on the person and our connection with nature as a whole system. It includes various types of acupressure, cupping, guasha, Thai and lymph massage, as well as herbal medicine. Another modality is coreSomatics, a powerful system of psychophysical re-education. This is combined with other techniques that allow our bodies to talk to us, which bring together mind, body, emotions, and spirit in a trusting whole. Another modality is the latest Euro-American health system called Biological Medicine. It has as its foundation the restoring of our internal environment to an alkaline milieu that supports the up-building powers of nature for re-generation, slowing the aging process and rekindling our vitality. Biological Medicine utilizes different diagnostic techniques, including a sophisticated muscle testing to determine our core issues and what is of priority in the healing process. Detoxification and nutritional protocols for clearing chemical solvents, pesticides and heavy metals, as well as other techniques to clear imprints in the mental and emotional bodies are utilized to free the biochemistry locked in unhealthy patterns and improve communication and functioning between systems (i.e. cardiovascular, immune, lymph, nervous system, etc.).

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.
