Dr. Erika is also a Registered Acupuncturist.
Acupuncture is an important part of traditional Chinese medicine.
Its most common use is to treat pain, by re-balancing energy flow.
Acupuncture has been used for centuries to treat acute and chronic conditions, and also for prevention. Its non-invasive nature means almost no side effects and no interference with any medications you may be taking. It’s a holistic treatment that empowers the body to heal itself. It will address the root of the problem rather than just treat the symptoms.
It’s all about balancing your “chi”. Chi or qi is the flow of energy through pathways or meridians in your body. By inserting needles into certain points along these meridians, a certified acupuncturist can re-balance your energy flow.
Some of the conditions which can be addressed by acupuncture include: allergies, asthma, arthritis, auto-immune disorders, colitis, depression and anxiety, digestive disorders, fatigue, fertility, headaches and migraines, nausea and heartburn, high blood pressure, infertility, insomnia, menstrual disorders, menopause, pain, pregnancy, repetitive stress injuries, carpal tunnel, sciatica, skin disorders, stress management.
When it comes to trying acupuncture, you have nothing to lose. If you’ve been dealing with an acute or chronic condition and prescription medication is only managing symptoms, you need to consider this natural and effective therapy. Dr. Erika can plan your course of treatment and get you on the road to recovery and better health for the long term.
