Acupuncturist, LAc, Dipl, Ac, BCIM
“I believe that optimum health is achieved through encouraging and educating our patients to abandon the prevailing sickness care model of health and adopt the merging care model. My vision is that true health can be found through optimum physical and social well being, not merely the absence of disease or infirmities. We won't be satisfied until you're healthy and your body works the way it was designed.

Acupuncture in Iowa (IA) - 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. Iowa (IA) 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.
