what we treat
Most people think that acupuncture is only for treating pain. While it's incredibly effective at pain management, it's good for so much more! You can find the World Health Organization's full list of conditions that have been shown to respond to acupuncture treatment here. Some common conditions include:
- autoimmune disorders
- pain management
- menstrual irregularities and PMS
- stress, anxiety, insomnia, grief, and/or depression
- cold/flu, sinus infections, toothaches, migraines
- high blood pressure
While Heidi treats all conditions that have been shown to respond to acupuncture, she takes special interest in the following:
When your digestive system is wreaking havoc, it can derail your entire life. Common digestive problems include heartburn/GERD, IBD, and IBS. Symptoms may include bloating, diarrhea, gas, stomach pain, and stomach cramps.
Stress is your body's way of responding to any kind of demand or threat. When you feel threatened, your nervous system responds by releasing a flood of stress hormones, which can cause a myriad of symptoms that can lead to a host of serious mental and physical problems.
An autoimmune disease develops when your immune system, which defends your body against disease, decides your healthy cells are foreign. As a result, your immune system attacks healthy cells. Depending on the type, an autoimmune disease can affect one or many different types of body tissue.
