    Mallory is so great to work with. She takes time to fully comprehend my complaints so her treatments always feel specialized. I always leave feeling relaxed and like I've been given a boost of health. Can't recommend Mallory any higher; she's a true healer.

      I suffered a serious motorcycle accident and came to Dr Thomson for my physical therapy. I am a firm believer in the power of the body to heal itself through chiropractic care without the use of drugs and other medicine. Dr. Thomson helped me get full use of my knee, shoulder and arm. It was not painless because I had to get a range of motion back and I had been in casts and braces for months. Dr Thomson used acupuncture needles and electrical stimulation therapy to help my muscles get used to being moved again. It also helped manage my pain. He taught me how to stretch and gave me assignments to complete at home. He explained that my healing was my responsibility and he would guide my body and prepare me to heal. After a while I began to see improvement. I have my range of motion back and am relatively pain free. I recommend Dr. Thomson as a very effective alternative to the traditional medical solutions through drugs. I believe I am better off today than I would have been had I not come to see Dr. Thomson.

      About

      Our clinic offers a fresh new approach to healthcare. Conventional medicine wants to give you a medication to suppress a symptom, but at East West, we look at the underlying cause of the symptom and then use acupuncture, nutrition and herbal medicine to enhance your ability to heal. We enhance function rather than suppress function. We have found that nearly 100% of the individuals who walk through our doors and follow through on their care will have enhanced health and restored function. With over 60% of America's population overweight (and growing), we have focused a great deal of research in weight loss. We have found a very simple method of using acupuncture and diet to turn on the 6 major fat-burning hormones in your body and have found ways to shut off your 3 major fat-storing hormones. We also treat pain conditions, from neuropathy to low back pain and headaches, and treat all kinds of gastrointestinal issues as well. Our clinic is very clean and friendly. We help you get over your fear of acupuncture by educating you on how acupuncture works and then by providing a gentle yet powerful treatment. If you or anyone you know have any health concerns, then we would invite you in for a complimentary evaluation to see if we can help. Sincerely Regan Archibald, LAc.

      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.
