Mood Issues Acupuncture Can Treat

** Individual results may vary. No guarantee of specific results is warranted or implied. Your results will depend on many factors.**

David helped me during pregnancy and then with postpartum recovery, all during Covid. He has a really warm, kind, and efficient approach. I felt very safe in his care, the office is immaculate. He successfully helped me put in the “eviction notice” for my baby’s birth. He then treated me in the fourth trimester, and helped me feel empowered and stronger in my body, while easing tension and pain. His communication during the process is thorough, and he has a wealth of knowledge. HIGHLY RECCOMMEND! – Jessi (36)

 

I came to David broken and anxious after a TBI. During our first consultation we diagnosed the acute region where I was suffering and developed a holistic program that treated my whole body. A feeling of peace and wellbeing quickly returned. This was my first time seeking acupuncture, David was careful to answer questions and entertain my curiosities (moxibustion!) and in general make me feel more balanced. Now all symptoms and pain subsided, I will return to David’s practice regularly to maintain optimum balance and health. Thank you David.

In addition to the acupuncture session being relaxing and pain releiving, David’s practice is welcoming and fun! He creates a space where it’s encouraged to ask questions about why this or what is happening when that. A session with David is like a partnership – you’re working together to learn what’s going on and to heal through his expertise of acupuncture and Chinese medicine. -CC (32)

He is truly one of the best acupuncturists I’ve been to! I feel so lucky to have found him. He actually cares not only about you, but finding the best possible treatment /solution. He listens carefully to make an assessment based not only on physical issues but intergrating social, emotional and spiritual components. He integrates nutrition and lifestyle issues into his treatment. He fully treated a complex issue of mine that I had been going to other acupuncturists without any luck! Highly recommended! – Darragh (33)

Everyone experiences mood disorders for different reasons. 

In Chinese Medicine our emotional imbalances tend to do mostly with the heart and/or liver channels, and the microbiome is invariably involved as well. 

It is for this reason that people gravitate to acupuncture and holistic medicine. 

Our goal is to analyze your unique pattern, affected organ channels, and regions of the brain, and treat them consistently with thoughtful care and analysis. 

What distinguishes our practice is our complementary neurological knowledge and training to incorporate into each diagnosis and treatment plan. 

How We Address Psycho-Emotional Conditions

Core Factors Assessment

We determine the root cause of your stress and any other ailments by assessing your individual holistic pattern with great care and respect for your priorities and choices.

Simple Plan of Attack

Managing our emotions does not have to be difficult. We'll determine a clear, concise treatment plan that may include some easy homework but will absolve you of any guess work.

Acupuncture Nerve Resetting

We use proven acupuncture techniques and/or electro-acupuncture to retrain your neurological pathways to naturally secrete more serotonin or dopamine.

Targeted Internal Medicine

With the proper combination of simple dietary modifications and specified herbal supplements, we can improve our psyche via health of the body.

Ensure Lasting Results

Once having achieved consistent pain relief, we'll reduce the frequency of treatments and empower you with self-regulating tools to ensure that your results last.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it hurt?

Acupuncture needles are the thinnest, most gentle needles in the world. Upon insertion you will most likely feel nothing, after which you may or may not feel a slight pressure point or nerve sensation to initiate the body’s natural anti-inflammatory mechanism.

Have you cured this before?

Yes. Every case is different, so there is never any guarantee of results, but this area is one of our specialties in which we’ve seen consistent improvement as well as full resolutions from regular acupuncture. 

 

What are the needles doing?

When it comes to physical pain, acupuncture excels at either relaxing hypertonic muscles or boosting weaker muscles in a way that allows the body to heal itself

Will I be on a lot of supplements forever?

No. With herbal medicine we try to use the bare minimum to elicit maximum results and do not expect or desire for patients to be reliant on them in perpetuity. Supplements are very rarely needed for cases of exclusively musculoskeletal pain.

 

How long do I have to come to see results?

A standard course of medical treatment for chronic conditions is 12 visits over the course of 2 months. HOWEVER, you may see results as early as the very first treatment and absolutely should experience some progress during the first month.

Are these treatments safe?

Yes. Acupuncture is considered to be one of the safest modalities in existence, with at worst the very occasional, mild soreness or bruise at the site of a point.
