Acupuncturists in Frederick County
“I work with patients that are motivated to improve their health and face their health challenges head first. My role as a practitioner is to help my patients improve while simultaneously motivating them, so they can make the all important leap to live healthy lifestyles. It is my belief that this will have an impact on the individual, the people they come into contact with, and eventually the healthcare system at large. Chinese medicine works extremely well, but is not limited to conditions such as pain management, anxiety, depression, headaches, allergies, digestive imbalance and reproductive health.
“I love this work. Being a part of someone's healing journey is an honor and a privilege. Watching someone's whole life change because of the intervention of a needle, is nothing short of amazing. I want to instill in patients the idea that symptoms are messages from the body letting us know of a deeper imbalance. We must interpret those messages and then real healing can begin. Won't you go on this journey with me?
“My goal is to help you receive relief as quickly and effectively as possible from whatever symptoms you have by treating the underlying cause. My goal is to also improve the overall quality of your life, so that you can feel happier and less stressed. Whether you suffer from physical pain or emotional pain, including anxiety and depression, you can feel much better. I treat a wide variety of conditions. Hopefully you will benefit from my treatments as many others have.

“Acupuncture can help on the body, mind, and spirit level. I strive to help people who have felt that they have not received the attention or help they have sought elsewhere. My clients range from children to elderly individuals, from those looking to maintain their wellness to those looking to manage a specific situation. I specialize in treating immune conditions, infertility, pregnancy, menstrual issues, pain management, migraines, back pain, allergies, and general overall health and wellness.
“I enjoy treating patients from different backgrounds and cultures. I accept health insurance from most insurance companies. Prospective clients are encouraged to check their individual health plan for acupuncture/acupressure benefits prior to their initial consultation. I work best with patients willing to apply what they learn from me as we address their problems. Changes in nutrition, exercise and lifestyle often help patients attain peak health. A positive attitude and willingness to follow the treatment program, which is typically 4-8 weeks, also helps patients resolve most ailments. I am committed to providing you with the best possible service available.
“I combine acupuncture, bodywork, guided body-centered dialogue and breathwork in a process oriented therapy I call TransHealing. I support you in addressing your "symptom" as a guide or messenger bringing to attention a conflict line within you of opposing forces. These forces speak to places within you that are seeking rebalancing. I assist in fine tuning your attention and empowering your own inner healer.

Acupuncture in Frederick County - 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. Frederick County 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.
