Aging & Disease Management

Sometimes it’s the subtlest of change that creates an opportunity for greater health.

You may come in for a treatment that improves one corner of your health and find we can dial up the brightness on the rest of your life. 

Things that are seemingly unrelated; pain patterns, sleep, digestion, or outlook on life, are usually interconnected.  It’s not uncommon for other things to begin to feel better, even where someone wasn’t noticing the relative kind of shade that had been cast on their experience of their life.

Chinese medicine can aid in all areas of health: cardiovascular, brain, eye, genitourinary health and much more.

Improving a weakening of the muscles and fascia can make them less prone to injury. Shoulder, knee, back, neck or whichever pain you are experiencing may be interrupting your life. Although it is essential to treat the injury, in the case of chronic issues or suspected weakening of tissue health, it’s also important to treat the underlying issues.

Commonly treated conditions can include: 

  • Memory
  • Post-stroke recovery
  • Exhaustion and fatigue
  • Chronic pain, musculoskeletal injuries
  • Neurological disorders: Parkinson, Multiple sclerosis  (MS)
  • Post-surgical recovery
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Chronic lung issues
  • Facial rejuvenation and hair loss
  • Eye disorders or ophthalmology

Chinese medicine has a long history of promoting longevity and graceful aging. Even so we do not need to be offended by the fact that we age and die. 

Aging presents us with opportunities for increasing our wisdom, gracefulness, humility and humor. I’m committed to helping support the intrinsic dignity of aging.

Adjunctive Approaches to Cancer Treatment

Japanese Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are tremendously effective in some of the complications and side effects of conventional Western approaches to working with cancer. Countless clinical trials have shown the efficacy of acupuncture and herbal medicine in treating: 

  • Peripheral neuropathy
  • Nausea
  • Weight loss
  • Fatigue 
  • Pain

We can improve your immune system, rebuilding it after rounds of chemotherapy and radiation where appropriate.

We’ll discuss your individual diagnosis and overall condition, and adjust for what you need. Supplements in addition to specific herbal prescriptions can be very important parts of your treatment plan.

It’s important to have on your team of healthcare providers someone who is experienced in up to date clinical research in adjunctive therapies. Connect to see how I can support your overall goals. 

NOTE:  I do not advocate the use of Chinese medicine or Japanese acupuncture as a sole avenue for treating cancer, but as an adjunct of therapy.
