Tourette Syndrome

Acupuncture has a long and successful history in the treatment of the tics, uncontrolled movements, and vocal disturbances of Tourette Syndrome. I have used acupuncture effectively for many years to treat this chronic disorder. Many patients have tried multiple medications for a period of years. In some cases, the benefits of the medications diminsh over time as bodily resistance and toxicity increases to the drugs. In other cases, patients are seeking a better clinical outcome. In both cases, acupuncture is an effective tool for controlling or eliminating Tourette Syndrome. To a large degree, my success with the treatment of this disorder is from my years of specializing in acupuncture neurology vis-à-vis scalp acupuncture. Patients are often pleasantly surprised by the degree of lasting progress that is achieved.




Acupuncture for the treatment of epilepsy has a controlled clinical history that is over one thousand years old. Certainly, epilepsy presents in many forms and patterns and is associated with complications from other chronic conditions. The vastness of the medical knowledge in Chinese Medicine for the treatment of epilepsy guides every treatment in my clinic. Patients can enjoy reducing their medication levels over time while at the same time experiencing less frequent episodes. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are often used to enhance the immune system of the patient while at the same time quelling seizures.
