What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the oldest medicine in the world that is still in use. Originating in Asia over 5,000 years ago, it is still powerfully effective in the modern world, without surgery or side effects.

Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine, sterile needles into specific locations all over the body. Each location controls a series of signals to the brain, initiating a dramatic acceleration of healing.

Acupuncture Treatments

Chronic Pain

Pain that doesn’t go away is a sign that your body is not strong enough to heal well. Acupuncture is particularly effective in resolving stuck pain because it not only accelerates healing, but detoxifies and strengthens the body at the same time.

Conditions treated:

  • Sciatica
  • Low back pain
  • Neck & shoulder tension
  • Headaches
  • Knee pain
  • Arthritis

Digestive Distress

Digestion problems are big business in the U.S. It seems like every other ad is for a product to help with acid reflux, diarrhea, or constipation. Yet these only manage symptoms. And the truth is, if you are regularly experiencing these symptoms, not only do you already have a serious situation going on, but things will go from bad to worse. The reason for this: all of these symptoms reflect a weak digestive system, which is the root of all vitamin absorption, which therefore impacts brain function, cell function, and your entire immune system. If your body cannot process food properly, you are headed for a future of illness. 
Conditions treated:
  • GERD/Acid Reflux
  • IBS
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Celiac Disease
  • Diverticulitis
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Nausea/Vomiting
The great news is that acupuncture and other holistic approaches can completely turn this process around. By detoxifying organs, boosting absorption, and calming reactivity, you will be amazed at how swiftly you come to feel normal and healthy again.

Mystery Illness

People often find their way to acupuncture out of desperation. Their health has been problematic for years and is only getting worse, and the traditional approaches with their MD’s have not been successful. In most cases, digestive health and metabolism are seriously compromised. Acupuncture accelerates the body’s ability to heal itself by detoxifying organs, reducing systemic inflammation, repairing damaged cells, and encouraging vitamin absorption.

Conditions treated:

  • Headaches/Migraines
  • Dizziness
  • Numbness in hands/feet
  • Profuse Sweating
  • Twitching muscles/muscle weakness
  • Itchiness
  • Rashes/Eczema
  • Intense Fatigue
  • Mental Fog
  • Swollen Tongue
  • Stomach bloating/pain

Men’s Health

Most men over age 50 will begin to experience changes in their urinary and sexual functions. Between the infuriating inability to urinate, the chronic fatigue, and the difficulty in performing sexually, a gentleman may find himself asking what happened to his vitality and good humor. Pills and surgery are the MD’s primary approaches. But many men have discovered that Viagra doesn’t always work, and surgeries on the prostate are often unsuccessful and can cause lingering pain exactly where you don’t want it. 

Conditions treated:

  • BPH
  • Too-frequent urination
  • Weak urinary stream
  • Difficulty voiding bladder
  • Chronic UTI’s
  • Incontinence
  • Difficulty maintaining erection
  • Difficulty ejaculating
  • Low testosterone
  • Low sex drive 

The success of our Men’s Health program depends on the willingness of the patient to comply with treatment protocols, such as changes to diet and frequency of acupuncture appointments, as well as the patient’s current overall health. A pre-appointment phone interview is necessary in order to assess if you are a candidate. Call to inquire! 

I came to Candice out of desperation. Along with over 10 years of seriously declining health, I woke up two months ago with an extreme migraine and vertigo. My doctors had no answers. I couldn't work...I am only 55. Candice patiently took 2 hours with me, and put me on a very strict diet, which I saw results from the first week. She gave me acupuncture for my headache and vertigo, which was comfortable and relaxing. I had some relief the first time and it just got better with every session. She gave me my life back.
