“My aim is to encourage your body in its natural attempts to return to a state of balance, harmony, health and freedom from pain. This is achieved through the diagnosis and treatment of the sources of your discomfort or illness in addition to relieving your pain. I am deeply committed to preventive medicine and work with both acute and chronic pain and illness.”
“Embracing the best of Eastern treatment methods and firmly believing that Western Medicine is necessary under many circumstances, I am happy to consult with your other health care providers. I welcome your questions and the opportunity to assist you with reaching your optimal health potential.”
The National Institutes of Health officially recognized Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in the fall of 1997 and again by JAMA, The Journal of the American Medical Association, in the November 11th 1998 issue. Since that time, much research, too many studies to list here, has shown acupuncture to be important treatment protocol for many health problems.
