What We Treat

The beauty of Acupuncture is that it can benefit many conditions, since treatment focuses on overall wellbeing. Chinese medicine is concerned with addressing the underlying root cause behind your particular pattern of imbalance, rather than treating only the signs and symptoms manifested by your condition.

While below is a list of conditions that Acupuncture treats effectively, at the end of the day the goal is to restore homeostasis and equilibrium within all aspects of the mind, body, and spirit.

Annie is truly amazing! She is patient and kind; and takes the time to get to know each patient individually, working with them to personalize their treatment. I have chronic migraines and suffer from anxiety, and she was a HUGE help throughout the entire process. I felt much, much better after just a few sessions with her. My tension headaches and muscle twitches nearly subsided, and I felt more calm and at ease. I highly, highly recommend working with her!

Annie is a very thoughtful acupuncturist who is guided by Traditional Chinese Medicine and aromatherapy. I appreciate that she often incorporates essential oils and massage into her treatments, and she occasionally recommends herbs for persistent issues. With the scope of her practice she has been able to address a variety of my physical and emotional ailments.

My most recent treatment was for a cold that lasted a few days, went away, and then come back for even longer. I had sinus pressure, drainage, and an uncontrollable cough. After my session with Annie my sinuses cleared and coughing subdued—not even 24 hours later I felt like myself again. Annie’s treatments will support your immune system and get you back on your feet in no time!
