Q&A Series 2

This week for our question and answer session we sat down with our practitioner Rebecca Ladizhensky. We love answering all of your questions and we especially love when you submit special topic requests! This week one our patients asked us to talk about mental health. So many people struggle with mental health conditions. But treatment for mental health in the world of Western medicine often comes in the form of prescriptions. What if you want other options? Can acupuncture fill in the gaps?

Rebecca is one our practitioners that is familiar seeing patients with a wide range of emotional conditions. In this weeks Q&A she talks about how acupuncture can help patients cope with daily stressors, overcome extreme anxiety, and find long term relief. Mental health does not need to be something that you figure out how to cope with, or simply live with day to day. There are alternative options that exist and acupuncture is one of them.

Acupuncture is one branch of Chinese medicine that we utilize at our clinic in order to treat a wide variety of conditions.

We understand that every patient that walks through the door is going to need to a custom treatment plan and that the healing process will look unique person, to person. That is why it is absolutely vital that we not only take advantage of acupuncture as a method of treatment but we aid in the process by using herbal and nutritional supplements.

Utilizing Chinese herbal supplements accompanied with acupuncture gives your body the raw materials to be able to respond to treatment faster and see lasting results. Our skilled practitioners assess each patients’ needs and customize an individual treatment plan combining acupuncture, supplements, and body work modalities.

Based on the assessment of our skilled providers we recommend a wide variety of nutritional and herbal supplements.

Scared of Needles? Don’t be!

Acupuncture can sometimes be thought of as scary and intimidating when you associate the use of needles with pain relief. Many people simply don’t know what an acupuncture needle looks like or how the process of acupuncture even works. We are here to debunk all of the myths and show the reality of how healing this alternative type of treatment can be.

Acupuncture needles are single use, pre-packaged, medical grade, sterilized needles. At our clinic we use the smallest gauge of stainless steel needle equivalent to two strands of human hair. When inserting the needles our practitioners use a technique to engage the stretch receptors resulting in a pain free insertion.

Regardless of whether you are coming into our clinic for the first time, are a returning patient, or are just curious, we would love to answer your questions! Acupuncture can treat such a wide variety of conditions ranging from stress, sports injuries, infertility, chronic conditions, or even general wellness. Don’t let the fears, myths, stigma, and questions stop you from getting treated!
