“I have been a professor at the Phoenix Institute of Herbal Medicine and Acupuncture. Before this, I spent four years on staff at Northwestern Memorial Hospital's Center for Integrative Medicine, in Chicago. In addition to patient care my responsibilities included teaching and leading rounds for Medical students and residents. I also coordinated a research project studying the effectiveness of herbal therapy in the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome. My education integrated a complete Traditional Chinese Medical curriculum, with Western Medicine, which included the study of biochemistry, clinical psychology, nutrition, lab data analysis, pathology, pharmacology, and applied clinical internal medicine.

Acupuncture in Avondale - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Avondale acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into a number of trigger points on your body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
