While quite common in today’s busy, fast-paced society, stress, anxiety and depression can be difficult to overcome. Left untreated, these conditions can become serious problems, which can manifest as digestive difficulties, headaches, hypertension, poor appetite and insomnia. Although it may be impossible to remove stress entirely from your life, it is both essential and possible to lessen the effects with good stress management methods. Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) can be an effective method of treatment for these kinds of disorders and the ailments they trigger by targeting individual imbalances and working to create harmony throughout the body.
My treatment begins with a thorough evaluation of each individual patient. Treatment may include nutritional counseling, acupuncture, meditation, visualization, breathing techniques, herbal medicine, and aromatherapy. Recent studies show that acupuncture may be able to affect the levels of neurotransmitters such as serotonin.
Patients may choose to incorporate Traditional Chinese Medicine into their existing course of treatment, or as an alternative. Sometimes drug therapies aren’t working or are a cause of concern for patients, or they wish to discontinue anti-depressants after a period of time. I will work with your physician as needed to create the best course of treatment for you. Ancient Chinese medical texts have written about the link between our emotions affect on health.
Science has since proven the link between emotional state and health.

THIS STUFF WORKS.
Our unique blend of holistic medical therapies gets ALL your body's healing resources going in the same direction...
Calms stress, clears neuroendocrine pathways, and promotes circulation. In fact, one of the most commonly reported benefits of acupuncture is a deep feeling of relaxation. But it's more powerful than that.
NATURAL + EFFECTIVE MEDICINE
Our powerful medical modalities have stood the test of time, providing relief for countless patients experiencing symptoms of anxiety. We use 100% natural therapies that work WITH your body and your mind to help you heal, literally, from the inside out.
Rooted in the principles of Chinese medicine, holistic coaching is incorporated into your treatment sessions to provide a true mind-body approach to healing. It's important that you understand the anxiety you experience, where it's coming from and how to work with it. We help you develop this understanding in an empowering and light-hearted way.
Our Process Is Simple
Free Initial Consultation
At your free initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your endometriosis including current symptoms, medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most importantly YOUR GOALS. We want to be certain that our program is going to meet your needs and that there is a HIGH probability of success for you – BEFORE we move forward to the next step.
Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan
Once your free consultation is complete, and we agree to move forward, your next step is the Intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will do a detailed assessment of your symptom pattern, medical history, and other factors to determine the root cause of your issue and devise a specific plan of action.
Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time, and a you will be given a treatment plan with exact, easy-to-follow instructions. Your treatment plan will include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root cause of your condition and address your most pressing symptoms.
Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution
You’ll return for once-weekly visits to ensure close support as you begin to feel the positive shifts of the therapy. We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results:
- Better mood
- Better sleep
- Improved mental focus
- Increased energy
- Calmer and resilient
- Healthy metabolism and (if needed) weight loss
You’ll also receive acupuncture at each visit to ensure that your neuroendocrine system (the delicate connection between your nervous and hormonal systems) is re-balancing in a way that results in optimal endocrine function.
Transitional Care As Things Stabilize
Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of visits. This usually occurs after about 8-12 visits. Initially you’ll come every other week, then once a month for a couple of visits, then you will no longer need regular treatments.
We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.
Of course, MANY of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your wish.
Taking Care Of Your Friends and Loved Ones
We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our new patients are referred to us by other patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receive life-changing benefits from our work.
So, we very much look forward to helping YOUR friends, family, and loved ones on THEIR journey to a more joyful, energetic, purposeful life.
