Acupuncture

Common conditions I treat with acupuncture:

Acupuncture is effective for many disorders including: neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, wrist pain, mild anxiety, mild depression, fatigue, auto-immune disease, hormone balancing.

I use a Japanese blind practitioner style of acupuncture, where I feel for points rather than measuring, and which includes use of smaller needles, and a different diagnostic approach.
