Conditions I Treat

There's nothing acupuncture can't help with, even if it's just supportive therapy. An example would be that we don't treat cancer with acupuncture, but acupuncture has been proven to help with pain, anxiety, depression, and nausea that accompanies cancer treatment. 

 

Although acupuncturists are trained to treat everything, specialties in clinic are low back pain, wrinkles, shingles, allergies, constipation/IBS/diarrhea, effects of aging, headaches, bladder issues, stress, PMS, hormonal issues, low libido, insomnia, sinusitis, chronic joint pain (knees, elbows, frozen shoulder, wrist and ankle), anxiety, and grief. Any condition that began after a loss or difficult emotional time in your life is a particular specialty.  We do not treat female infertility or sports injuries.
