Conditions Treated

Oriental medicine is a comprehensive system of medicine. It works with your body to produce true healing instead of suppressing symptoms. A few of the conditions successfully treated by acupuncture and Oriental medicine:


  • Women’s issues, including painful periods, menopause, and other gynecological issues. These are treated without requiring uncomfortable examinations.  I have served on over a dozen couples’ medical teams and seen them achieve fertility and successful pregnancies.  I routinely help with menstrual irregularities.  This is a gratifying specialty, as it can improve the overall health and quality of life for girls and women.
  • Post-Surgery, acupuncture does a good job to reduce pain as well as to help the healing process. It works well alongside physical therapy. It is quite cost effective in this area, as a few treatments can give my patients a lot of help.

  • Chronic pain, especially joint and muscle pain, arthritis, as well as headaches and other discomforts.
  • Fatigue, including chronic fatigue syndrome, or a general feeling of being down.
  • Most conditions that respond to drug treatment, respond even better to acupuncture and Chinese herbs – without side effects. However, we insist on partnering with your doctor to determine a proper course of treatment. Some medications need special care and planning.
  • Most chronic conditions such as allergies, asthma, and more respond extremely well to acupuncture.
  • Cancer care, participating as part of the medical team prior to, during and after cancer treatment.  It is exciting to help strengthen patients as they go through this health challenge.

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine work well as a branch of physical therapy but also can improve internal health.  Examples of systems that can be evaluated and treated cooperatively with other medical providers are
