Acupuncture & Herbs: A Complete System of Internal Medicine

For over 25 years at my Capitola location, I have successfully treated back pain, insomnia, and digestion disorders such as diverticulitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and acid reflux. Patients with neck & back pain, shoulder pain, and knee pain enjoy the medical benefits of acupuncture at my clinic. In addition, acupuncture and herbal medicine is an effective tool for treating stress, fatigue, and depression.

Acupuncture and herbal medicine are also beneficial for patients with allergic reactions and immune system disorders. Acupuncture treatments relieve the pain, improve range of motion, and restore the healing process to local tissues. In this way, peripheral nerve fibers have a chance to heal, disc protrusions shrink, tendons and muscles are relaxed and nourished, and inflammation diminishes. My goal is not only to stop the pain but also to restore your activity level so that you may enjoy a vibrant lifestyle without complication.

For those going through menopause, protect your bone density with Chinese herbal medicine. The acupuncture and herbal medicine halt the night sweating, quell the mental restlessness, stop the hot flashes, and restore quality sleep. I use the same herbal medicine formulas that the great masters of Chinese medicine have used for nearly 1,000 years. Moreover, I use only the finest herbal ingredients.

Infants, children, and adults have benefitted from acupuncture treatments at my office. Many patients are so relaxed during the acupuncture treatments that they fall asleep. Once the hair-thin needles are inserted, there is no sensation other than deep relaxation. This is because acupuncture stimulates parasympathetic nerve impulses and brain activity similar to those generated during sleep.
