I combine diet and lifestyle recommendation as the first prescription in any treatment course. However, when a greater punch is needed in naturally assisting healing the body, Herbal Medicine is highly recommended. I carry my own supply of GMP (good manufacturing practice) certified, granulated extract single Chinese herbs. They are vigorously tested for pesticides and contaminants and FDA approved for safe use in the clinic setting. I write, prescribe, and fill my own formulas for each individual patient as needed. An Herbal course can last anywhere between a couple days or many months depending on the treatment goals and specific condition being treated. There are various methods when taking herbal medicines including pre-formulated pills, capsules, tablets, and the traditional loose raw formulations. I use extract granules for ease and flexibility with formulation and consumption in our modern and fast paced world. This insures patients can receive personalized herbal treatment with no long wait time. I can work with each individual to insure the best modality that fits your needs. Herbal medicine is powerful, yet subtle in action and may require diet and lifestyle/activity restrictions in order to achieve the maximum benefit desired. When working with individuals, I include education into TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) concepts on energetics and natures of specific foods to treat certain conditions. It is wise to follow the recommended dietary prescription to achieve maximum benefit and results when receiving herbal and acupuncture therapy.
Cupping and Therapeutic Bodywork
I include many other adjunct modalities and techniques within my scope of practice as an Acupuncturist. I employ popular and effective treatments such as Cupping, Gua Sha, Tuina (Chinese massage), Shiatsu, Acupressure, and energy rebalancing/healing with Reiki and Medical Qi Gong.
