As a general practitioner I enjoy seeing whoever walks through my door. Any condition that's painful or distressing, is made worse by fatigue or stress, is chronic, or is not easily diagnosed or cured by conventional medicine is potentially a good reason to seek out a Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner. Because I diagnose and am guided in my treatment by listening to your symptoms, observing you directly, and feeling your pulse, I don't need a disease diagnosis to create an effective treatment for you. Most clients can sense an improvement within the first few visits.
Conditions I have seen improve with treatment include (but are not limited to):
- Pain, acute or chronic: headache, neck or back pain, shoulder, knee, foot or ankle pain, injury, neuropathy
- Allergies, sinus infections, colds and flu
- Anxiety, depression
- Digestive problems--acid reflux, indigestion, irritable bowel
- Reproductive disorders, menstrual irregularity or pain
The body has amazing healing capabilities when given an opportunity. I support and encourage my clients to create the best possible opportunity for their healing process.
