Eastern medicine (EM) has evolved into an evidence-based comprehensive holistic health care system. My approach combines acupuncture, electro-acupuncture, Gua Sha, cupping, moxibustion, herbal medicine, nutrition therapy, lifestyle fine-tuning, and functional medicine testing. While I am new to the Roseville and Granite Bay areas, I have 19 years experience addressing your mental and physical response to stress, quality of sleep, fertility, pregnancy, hormone regulation, acute and chronic pain and injuries, inflammation, digestion, energy levels, and immune function with acupuncture.
Eastern medicine has been documented and practiced over 3,000 years. According to a study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine, 51% of medical doctors understand the efficacy and value of acupuncture, and refer their patients to Eastern medicine more than any other alternative care provider.
Scientific research on how acupuncture works:
Neurotransmitter Theory: Acupuncture affects higher brain areas, stimulating the secretion of beta-endorphins and enkephalins in the brain and spinal cord. The release of neurotransmitters influences the immune system and the antinociceptive system.
Autonomic Nervous System Theory: Acupuncture stimulates the release of norepinephrine, acetylcholine and several types of opioids, affecting changes in their turnover rate, normalizing the autonomic nervous system, and reducing pain.
Vascular-Interstitial Theory: Acupuncture effects the electrical system of the body by creating or enhancing closed-circuit transport in tissues. This facilitates healing by allowing the transfer of material and electrical energy between normal and injured tissues.
Blood Chemistry Theory: Acupuncture affects the blood concentrations of triglycerides, cholesterol, and phospholipids, suggesting that acupuncture can both raise and diminish peripheral blood components, thereby regulating the body toward homeostasis.
Gate Control Theory: Acupuncture activates non-nociceptive receptors that inhibit the transmission of nociceptive signals in the dorsal horn, “gating out” painful stimuli.
