Health & Well Being

Medical acupuncture is acupuncture performed by a doctor trained and licensed in Western medicine who has also had thorough training in acupuncture as a specialty practice.  Health is promoted by using the best possible treatments from Eastern and Western medicine.  This combined approach combines successes from both worlds and is customized to the individual patient using the safest, least invasive and most cost effective approaches to remain healthy.  By promoting balance, acupuncture facilitates the body’s natural potential for healing and focuses on not only the physical but also on emotional health and well being.  It also emphasizes the power of the doctor/patient relationship.

One’s energy is treated with respect and not wasted through prolonged physical, emotional, mental exhaustion, sexual excesses,or injudicious diet. Twentieth century biomedical science has no single term to denote a vivifying force, yet as a physician one routinely describes the outward manifestations of this dimension of patients.  Medical records include comments about the patent’s general appearance, alertness, orientation and cooperation. Notes are made about the brightness of the eyes, color of the face, texture of the skin, timbre of the voice, and strength and rate of the pulse.
