How Does Acupuncture Integrate with Western Medical Techniques?

Acupuncture can work exceptionally well in tandem with Western medicine techniques and provides respite and relief from physical and mental conditions.

Western medicine practices acknowledge that acupuncture can work exceptionally effectively, most commonly in primary care. Typically the process is used to treat musculoskeletal pain, including myofascial trigger point pain. It is also effective for postoperative pain and nausea.

Jennifer has been a major part of my health regime for years. I leave my visits with her feeling so much better every time. She is very knowledgeable about her craft and overall holistic treatments. Beyond providing traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture, she's skilled in aroma and crystal therapy. She's helped me balance my hormones and treat my anxiety. I always know I'm in the right hands when I pay her a visit -- she's incredibly personable and easy on the touch.

I have been going to Jenn for several months now, and can honestly say she has helped change my life. She is hands down incredible at what she does. I went in with things like anxiety, stress, stagnation, IBS, hair loss, etc. you name it I had it... Week by week we work together to slowly but surely work on these health issues, and I can absolutely say that her acupuncture techniques, cupping, and holistic advice for my life have made me a healthier/happier person! Even my friends and family have noticed my health turning around :)

I cannot say enough positive things about Jennifer and her healing work. A few years ago, after only two acupuncture treatments,  I could open my jaw pain free - this was astonishing after three months of physical therapy treatments which did not help the issue. I had tried other acupuncturists but never saw such tangible results.

Krysten J. | Verified Patient

went for the first time here- to Jen for acupuncture. I've never had it done before so I was really nervous but she is very comforting and so knowledgeable it made it all good! Really loved the experience and highly recommend if you've always wanted to try but never have- go to her!
