INTRODUCTION

Not all acupuncture treatment is the same.

To realize the full benefit of this ancient oriental therapy, you need a practitioner fully qualified in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). I have studied TCM extensively and am board-certified not only in acupuncture but also in oriental medicine and Chinese herbology. This training enables me to provide a more integrated, balanced approach to your specific problem, whether it’s pain relief, digestive disorders, or chronic respiratory illness—an approach that other oriental medicine providers may not employ.

Harmony Integrative Medicine is born of the belief that blending the trusted traditions of ancient wisdom with the best of modern biomedicine affords a truly comprehensive path to health.  With that in mind, we strive to work closely with the western physicians of our patients to coordinate a balanced health care plan uniquely suited to their needs.

Increasingly, American patients and doctors alike are coming to realize that conventional biomedicine is superb when it comes to surgery, emergency and trauma.  However, alternative medicines like Acupuncture and Oriental medicine often are more effective for chronic, degenerative conditions like heart disease, arthritis, endocrine and metabolic disease and for more common ailments such as asthma, gastrointestinal disorders, uro-genital disorders, headaches and allergies, to name a few.

Harmony Integrative Medicine provides advanced acupuncture and herbal medicines using the treatment model practiced in China. This model allows us to offer this medicine to the whole community with significantly reduced fees.

OUR APPROACH

While most acupuncturists in the US see only one patient per hour, once per week, our model at Harmony is much the same as is practiced in China. Acupuncture therapy is administered for several days in a row, as needed, until symptoms have been alleviated. In this way, significant relief and stability is reached in 1-3 weeks rather than the 10-20 weeks or more it can take to achieve results with the once-per-week modality.

OUR FEE SCHEDULE

Harmony offers a sliding fee scale based on a seven-day period of time we refer to as a “treatment week.”  The first appointment is $100 ($50 examination/consultation and $50 treatment).  A second appointment in a treatment week is $45 and subsequent treatments within the week are $40.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

An extensive medical history, examination and report of findings will be completed during your initial appointment.  An acupuncture treatment may follow this exam or be scheduled for the following day.  Acupuncture treatments generally last 40-60 minutes.  Most patients report a sense of deep relaxation and well being; some even fall asleep  during treatment.

Call today to give yourself and loved ones the gift of health and harmony.

National Institute of Health Conference (NIH) found Acupuncture:*

  • Effective for adult post-operative and chemotherapy nausea and vomiting; a reasonable option for post-operative myofascial and low back pain; should be a part of a comprehensive program for asthma, addiction and smoking cessation.
  • Has substantially lower incidence of adverse effects than many drugs or accepted medical procedures used for the same conditions.
  • The data in support of acupuncture is as strong as for many accepted Western medical therapies.

Clinical Research (NIH) demonstrates that Acupuncture:*

  • Stimulates bone regrowth
  • Regulates blood pressure
