Acupuncture is safe for all ages
Acupuncture originates from China and has been practiced there for thousands of years. Although there are records of acupuncture being used hundreds of years ago in Europe, it was during the second half of the twentieth century it began to spread rapidly in Western Europe, the United States and Canada. Acupuncture involves the insertion of very thin needles through the patient’s skin at specific points on the body – the needles are inserted to various depths. We are not sure how acupuncture works scientifically. However, we do know that it does have some therapeutic benefits, including pain relief and alleviation from nausea caused by chemotherapy.
Her practice includes patients of all ages and also those with particularly difficult health challenges, including women’s hormonal issues, pregnancy demands, and children’s behavioral and learning problems. She helps her patients create “user friendly” family nutritional plans that include eating whole food. Dr. Heather is proud to carry Standard Process and NutriWest supplements.
Dr. Heather loves the power of the chiropractic adjustment and also specializes in upper cervical work and the activator.
