Relief

I specialize in helping professionals who may be enjoying working in their dream field and later find it hard to continue their favorite activities because of stress, anxiety, back pain or injury. It can be depressing if you don’t have the energy for your favorite activities in your free time. I help professionals get relief and love their lives again!

The Process

The process typically includes an initial appointment of 1.5hrs that incorporates a detailed health history, evaluation, treatment plan, and acupuncture treatment. Most subsequent visits last one hour and include a 10 minute re-evaluation, acupuncture treatment, and cupping or guasha as needed.

Clients usually come to my office once or twice weekly for one month to start achieving results. A simple condition may require 5 acupuncture visits, while more complicated and chronic conditions may require 6 months to a year of treatment.

 

Challenges

Common obstacles that clients face during treatment are committing to the dietary and lifestyle changes needed in order to experience optimal health, consistency in taking prescribed herbal medicines, and finding time for acupuncture treatments.

 

Solutions

I like to help my clients overcome those obstacles and get the most out of our work together by offering appointments on some weekday evenings, and Sundays. During our appointments, I am happy to offer support and guidance to help you move swiftly towards your health care goals. For most individuals, a series of treatments is needed, and there tends to be a slump in results around the 2-3rd treatments. On occasion, symptoms may become aggravated before they get better. This is completely normal and it is important to stay motivated and on track during this time so that you will see the results you want in a few weeks. I look forward to working with you and helping you love your life again!

Results

The goal of holistic medicine is to address the root cause of dis-ease, in order to restore health and eliminate symptoms. Because the body needs time to heal (this will vary depending on the severity of the issue) the process can take a few weeks to months of continued care in order to achieve the desired results. You will start to feel relief before your care is complete, and in order to maintain results, it is best not to discontinue treatment before your recovery has stabilized, or dismiss maintenance care. That said, the body has an immense capacity to heal itself, and most people are amazed by their potential for health!
