No Pushy Agendas
Here’s How We Help Thousands Every Year With PROVEN, Personalized Holistic Medical Care
Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body’s innate healing process. Then, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues. Laser Acupuncture harnesses the vast healing intelligence your body contains to help it heal faster and with more lasting effects.
Herbs simultaneously cure AND strengthen the body. This dual action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well suited to treat hormonal conditions including thyroid, menstrual disorders, mood problems, sleep issues, and fertility.
Functional Nutritional Therapy
Relaxation and Stress-Reduction
When your nervous system is calm, the hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means a more focused mind, more resilient immune system, less inflammation, better circulation, and optimal nutrient absorption.
The Process IS Simple
Free Initial Consultation
At your free initial consultation you’ll meet with your clinician to discuss your case, your 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 attack.
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 of your specific type of issue.
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:
- Reduced anxiety
- Healthy, stable mood
- More engergy
- Abundant Energy
- Restful sleep
You’ll also receive acupuncture at each visit to ensure that your neuroendocrine system (the delicate connection between your nervous and hormonal systems) is rebalancing in a way that results in ongoing optimal neuroendocrine balance.
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 in weekly, then as your condition improves the frequency becomes less. We re-evaluate your case with you periodically and fine tune as needed until we achieve the desired results.
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.
Common Questions & Answers About Our Treatments
HOW DOES ACUPUNCTURE HELP WITH ANXIETY AND DEPRESSION?
Acupuncture has been shown in studies to increase endorphin secretion (a natural mood enhancer and relaxer). It also has strong balancing effects on the neuroendocrine axis (the communication between your nervous and endocrine systems), enhances neurotransmitter function, and dramatically reduces stress – all of which benefits your mood.
WHAT ABOUT HERBAL MEDICATIONS?
Herbal medicines have been used for mood issues for centuries. They restore depleted glands, balance your endocrine system, reduce inflammation and have many other positive effects on your brain and mood system. We only use herbal formulas when we deem it necessary and always collaborate with your current mental health physician.
DO YOU GIVE DIETARY RECOMMENDATIONS?
Absolutely. You will receive specific dietary recommendations based on your unique needs in addition to our diet plan that we’ve used for over a decade to help hundreds of people just like you defeat chronic anxiety and depression.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO WORK?
Effects of the acupuncture treatment can be immediate. However, for lasting results it sometimes takes several weeks. Most patients start to feel significant relief in 2 to 6 weeks. Your situation may vary.
WILL YOUR THERAPY CONFLICT WITH MY ANTI-DEPRESSANT OR OTHER MEDICATIONS?
The vast majority of the time there are no conflicts and, in fact, our patients are often able to reduce their medications after working with us. There are specific types of medications that do have a lot of documented interactions so we will make sure we know what you’re taking before we start. Your safety is our top priority!
WHAT ARE MY CHANCES OF SUCCESS?
Bottom line is that your situation is unique and once we meet with you we will be able to give you our best estimate of time and prognosis of outcome.
