In 17 years of my clinical experience I treated a wide variety of health problems with a high rate of success. My focus is in natural healing, digestive/ respiratory problems, allergies, depression & muscular pain. Besides acupuncture, I apply healing touch & energy healing. I also use direct and indirect moxibustion. Every disease has its own origin on a spiritual, mental & emotional level, and I address these levels in my acupuncture treatments. My work especially suits spiritually-oriented people, of delicate constitution, needle sensitive, or physically weak.

Acupuncture in Alaska (AK) - 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. Alaska (AK) 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.
