Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere.
According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, your overall health is determined by the quality of the Qi (energy) flow through the natural pathways of your body (meridians). Acupuncture uses a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to stimulate and improve your Qi flow. The many benefits of acupuncture include:
- Pain reduction
- Stress and tension relief
- Increased energy levels
- Stronger digestion
- Relief from bad habits and addictions
- Greater sense of overall health and well-being
How to prepare for an acupuncture treatment: Eat a light meal or a snack 1-2 hours before your acupuncture treatment. It is also important to be sufficiently hydrated. A good rule is to drink one more glass of water than you normally would. Wear loose, comfortable clothing or feel free to bring a change of clothes with you, such as shorts and a T-shirt.
An typical session may include heat therapy, body work, herbal and nutritional consultations in addition to the acupuncture treatment.
Your initial visit will be approximately 90 minutes as a thorough evaluation is performed, followed by the treatment session. Your follow up visit will be approximately 50-60 minutes and will include an assessment of your status and a treatment session.
Acupuncture treats the nausea/vomiting, fatigue, mind-fog, insomnia, hot flashes and other side effects associated with chemo and radiation, including peripheral neuropathy. Acupuncture is also effective in treating stress, anxiety and depression and assists patients, survivors and their families to maintain emotional balance.
Acupuncture treatments help restore a sense of well-being and calm.
Our Clinic works in close cooperation with the Arizona Oncology Foundation and offers special rates to Arizona Oncology patients.

One of the most common questions that patients ask about Chinese Medicine is: "Why does my practitioner check my pulse?" Pulse diagnosis is actually one of the most complex and important diagnostic techniques we use in Chinese Medicine. Through feeling and evaluating your pulse, I obtain an accurate diagnosis of your overall constitution, Qi (energy) flow, and internal organ health, among other things. I then synthesize all of this information into a highly effective and individualized treatment plan for your specific needs.
Smoking cessation treatments
Quitting smoking is a difficult, stressful process. Acupuncture is proven to be as effective, and in some cases, more effective than other modalities in helping individuals quit smoking (American Journal of Public Health. 2002 October, 92(10): 1642-1647). The particular elegance and advantage of acupuncture over other modalities is that there are no side effects from taking medications. Moreover, acupuncture simultaneously addresses and treats the stress/anxiety associated with quitting.
The acupuncture treatment for smoking cessation consists of a protocol of auricular (ear) points targeting the organs of detoxification and respiration as well as points targeting emotional well-being/addictive behaviors. There is only one body point used, a point on the hand between the thumb and the index finger.
Treatment frequency is between 3-5 times per week. Some individuals respond after a few treatments, others require more consistent, long-term follow-up.
Chinese herbal medicine is a 2,000 year old tradition using naturally occurring substances — including herbs — to enhance one's health and vitality. As opposed to Western medicine, the foundation of this approach is to support the body's natural self-healing mechanisms and abilities.
Since each patient has different needs, I carefully select and combine a variety of herbs that will synergistically blend together to achieve optimal results for your unique situation. I prescribe high-quality, professional-grade herbal medicines that are available only to qualified licensed professionals.
