Family Acupuncture and Wellness, Acupuncturist  in New Orleans
“My passion is to help people who are dedicated to living to their greatest potential and making the most out of life. Regardless of which symptoms are presenting, (whether it be allergies and asthma, depression and anxiety, or menopause or infertility) my goal is to adress the root cause of the imbalance while simultaneously relieving the symptoms. By removing the necessary blockages in the involved meridians as well as providing the body with what it needs through diet, herbs, and supplements, healing inevitably occurs. And when healing happens, the spirit evolves and we are more capable of living our mandate.

Acupuncture in Louisiana (LA) - 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. Louisiana (LA) 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.
