In my medical practice, I utilize a combination of herbal medicine, acupuncture and traditional Western medicine to treat my patients.

Many familiar Western drugs in use today are of herbal origin. Herbal healing is widely acknowledged as one of the earliest forms of medical treatment, and has been used by all cultures. Combining both Western and Eastern forms allows me to increase the safety and effectiveness of my practice, and also to treat a wider range of illnesses.

Using fine needles to stimulate different parts of the body, acupuncture has long been used to relieve pain and promote healing. It was first developed in China several thousand years ago, and a growing number of Western physicians now recognize it as a highly effective treatment modality.

Recent advances in scientific research, coupled with the potentially negative side effects of some drugs used to combat chronic pain, have resulted in a dramatic increase in the application of acupuncture over the past decade. And although it is still used primarily for pain relief, research has shown that it can also be very useful in treating a variety of other symptoms.

The World Health Organization approved acupuncture as a viable treatment for a number of medical conditions.
