Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine

Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine are the most well known parts of Oriental or Chinese Medicine.  Oriental Medicine also includes diet, massage, meditation, all to relieve pain, regulate functional systems and improve adaptive capacity to physiologic, and emotional stress. 

Acupuncture can relieve pain, stimulate healing and pain relief by applying massage and/or needles to points that regulate the function of internal organs and the soft tissue layers.  I also provide cupping, massage, infrared and electrostimulation.  Acute Cases may respond in a few visits.  Chronic problems may require more.  All needles are sterile, single use and disposable.

Acupuncture has limited effectiveness to directly treat infection and toxicity (including cancer) .  This is due to the short term effects of acupuncture on the immune system.  For optimum results, acupuncture treatment is ideally given 3-5x/week.  When patients cannot come for regular treatment, it is best to emphasize herbal medicine. 

Acupuncture can be very useful for pain, nausea, fatigue and many other treatment related side effects. 
"Acupuncture with electrical stimulation has been found to be useful in treating nausea and vomiting from chemotherapy; women using acupuncture required less medication for nausea and vomiting than women who used no acupuncture. Some trials suggest that acupuncture can reduce cancer pain, although a review of multiple trials showed it to be of no benefit."
Many cancer patients have found relief from nausea and vomiting through acupuncture. Some people find that acupuncture is the only therapy needed to combat this side effect, but other find they need acupuncture along with traditional, Western medicines to get relief.

Herbal Medicine has been researched in Asia and the United States to confirm its efficacy.  Clinical and laboratory studies confirm the efficacy of specific herbs and formulas to improve immune system function, provide antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal and antitumor effects.  We stock the highest quality pharmaceutical grade, prop. 65 compliant, herbal extracts  from GMP manufacturers.
