Considering Acupuncture or Fascial Counterstrain?

Having evolved over thousands of years, acupuncture is one of the oldest continually  practiced medical modalities in the world. Acupuncture is used to prevent and treat disease,  relieve stress and pain, balance mood, enhance athletic performance, increase fertility, and  improve overall health and wellness. I practice a very gentle form of acupuncture, a  Japanese style developed by Master Nagano of Japan. It is comfortable for even the most  sensitive of patients.

 Fascial counterstrain by contrast is a relatively new form of osteopathic manipulation that  seeks to place into a position of ease or counterstrain any tissue in the body that is inflamed    and causing pain or preventing the movement of healing lymph and blood through the area.  When prolonged inflammation occurs, it can spread to other tissues nearby and create  what  we see as chronic illness and pain.  This treatment is painless and relaxing and the  effects are long-lasting.  A combination of acupuncture and counterstrain is the most  effective and sublime treatment offered in my clinic.  

My clinic is contained within my home.  It is a peaceful, serene environment with a  neighborhood vibe, and I welcome local community, neighbors and families.  I treat all ages  and conditions, and all are welcome, whether you have pain or chronic disease, emotional  challenges, sleep difficulties, digestive complaints, fertility concerns, or if stress is too much  a part of your life. Whatever your concern, make an appointment or contact me with  questions, and then come on by and let’s work together to achieve better well-being. Young  children are happily treated without needles and generally love their treatments.  If you are  too unwell to travel to my clinic, contact me and we may be able to arrange for a home visit.
