How Can Acupuncture Help?
Acupuncture is the insertion of fine, sterile needles on a set of points on the body along the meridians. The purpose of every treatment is to help you detox, increase blood circulation, reduce stress, calms the mind and relaxes the body.
When your body is in harmony, all aspects of your life will work great, including your libido! Unfortunately most patients when they seek acupuncture help are already on various medications for years. We help patients restore functions by teaching and empowering them with good food choices and nourishing their internal organs with whole foods nutrients. We will also guide them in lifestyle changes to improve their overall health.
By working with us, patients will see a reduction in their cholesterol, glucose, C-reactive protein levels and improvements in sexual health. They then return to their MD to ask for a reduction in the dosages of their medications or stopped their medications as deemed fit.
Why is it important to work with a Licensed Acupuncturist?
In the state of California, all acupuncturists undergo rigorous 4 years of Masters in Traditional Oriental Medicine training before obtaining their license to practice. Reputable Chinese herbal medicine companies verify our license and check with California Acupuncture Board if there is any bad record against us before allowing us to open an account with them. Needless to say, if you do not have an acupuncture license, you cannot buy or dispense herb. This protocol is set to safe guard the public so that you get the best quality care.
