Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture promoting healthier lifestyle choices.
Acupuncture a Natural Stress Relief.
Side effects might include rest, peace of mind and possible drooling.

Studies support the use of Acupuncture as a natural treatment for stress relief. As demands on us continue to increase so do the levels of stress we experience. Mild headaches turns into stomach pains, insomnia, back pain, chronic fatigue or worst. The holistic approach of Acupuncture helps to restore balance, increase natural healing properties and support the body's immune system. For optimal health it’s important that we learn ways to balance out the demands in our life. Acupuncture, Chinese herbs and massage are some of the tools I use to help people internally restore balance while also physically reconnecting with your body.

Treating Digestive Disorders with Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture.
Nutritional Guidance
One only needs to scan the shelves of your local drug store and see all the products dedicated to digestive issues to realize how prevalent digestive problems are in this society; problems like heartburn, acid reflux, constipation, diarrhea to name a few. Many of these products only deal with symptoms and don’t get to the root of the problem. Additionally more conventional products and medications tend to come with a string of uncomfortable side effects. Utilizing Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and Herbal formulas, symptoms and underlining causes are addressed without the side effects.

Sadly, our typical diet contributes to many of these issues. High consumption of processed foods lacking in fiber enable our intestines to effectively eliminate waste, while over-cooked and over-processed food lacking in digestive enzymes compromise the body’s ability to absorb needed nutrients. It is common to become disconnected from our bodies and not realize the systemic effects the foods we consume are having on our health. If poor diet and nutritional habits are not addressed mild bloating, gas and inflamed intestines can lead to more serious diseases like Crone’s, diverticulitis, ulcerative colitis and even begin to compromise other systems of the body. The holistic approach of Chinese Medicine helps to restore the body’s balance while giving you the knowledge and tools needed to incorporate healthier lifestyle choices.
Chinese Medicine

Chinese Medicine sees digestive disorders in terms of energy imbalances. Acupuncture works by restoring balance, strengthening weaker systems and regulating stagnations. Combined with Chinese herbal formulas, the two have a synergistic effect, working internally and externally, extending the positive effects of treatments without the uncomfortable side effects of more mainstream medications.  Most digestive disorders respond very well to acupuncture and herbal treatments, however diet modifications may be needed. The digestive system is intimately connected with the health of other systems in the body. When our digestive system is compromised this can lead to other systemic problems expressed in ways such as fatigue, headaches, weakened immune system, body aches and pains, to name a few. Utilizing the holistic approach of Chinese Medicine to address one problem often resolves many linked symptoms we didn't realize were connected. Maintaining healthy digestion is one of the most important things we can do for our overall health. That and remembering to breathe.
