Acupuncture and Energy Medicine

Acupuncture works by mobilizing and regulating the energetic system of the body to prevent and treat disease. Drop a pebble into a pond and you see ripples. The effects of acupuncture are just as immediately felt. The medicine I offer is 'rooted in the Spirit', meaning that the emotional, psychological, and spiritual aspects are always taken into consideration in understanding and treating a disease.
 
Complex and difficult conditions become treatable when we understand that they are not separate entities but stages of transformation. Whether the problem is migraines, high blood pressure, low back pain, anxiety, insomnia, low energy, or hair loss, knowing how diseases move and mutate within the body to affect different functions and organs points the way to cure. Energy medicine is not deterministic. It is an open system that allows for transformation. There are always alternative ways to understand and solve a problem. There are always possibilities for change.

What is effective acupuncture?

Acupuncture is not about sticking needles into acupoints of the body; it's about eliciting the body's response to the stimulation of those points. Without such 'qi responses' acupuncture is useless. The points may be the same but it's the skill of the acupuncturist that makes the difference.
