TREATING THE WHOLE BODY

Acupuncture and its associated therapies excel at healing injuries, chronic pain, and health issues through balancing the structure of the musculoskeletal system and retraining the mind-body system to eliminate habitual patterns of stress and re-establish the natural healing response. 

In addition, Chinese herbal medicine and craniosacral therapy have their own broad therapeutic reaches, so the following list is neither exclusive nor exhaustive but gives an idea of the conditions most commonly treated at my clinics:
