Many people seek acupuncture for pain relief. I will ask you many questions about your condition and your answers are important as they guide my selection of acupuncture points. I will ask you what makes the pain better or worse. We will need to determine if the pain is better with heat, cold, movement, or rest. I will ask you about the severity of pain on a scale of 1-10 during the day and at night. Asking these same questions frequently, allows us to chart improvement in your condition.

One of my specialties is the treatment of infertility. Traditional Chinese Acupuncture has been used to treat infertility for thousands of years.  From March, 2008 until October, 2010 I documented the results of patients being treated at my office for infertility. During this time period I helped 28 Connecticut families create 31 babies. Three mothers are expecting twins. To learn more about Acupuncture and Infertility or to review some individual cases click here…

Fertility, IVF, and acupuncture are a fascinating medical study. My patients consistently report an increase in the number of eggs when combining acupuncture and IVF. The work I have done with IVF patients is very helpful in proving how and why acupuncture helps women become pregnant with using acupuncture alone. I contribute my high success rate to my training in classical acupuncture.

In the United States many women planning In vitro fertilization (IVF) seek acupuncture treatment because many studies, including my own, shows Acupuncture when combined with IVF will greatly increase your chances of starting a family. A now famous German study which was published in the American Society for Reproductive Medicine, was one of the first studies to conclude that woman combining acupuncture with IVF are more likely to get pregnant. Since the release of the German study, the number of woman combining acupuncture and IVF has greatly increased.

Chinese acupuncture treatments are great at resolving stress related illnesses.  Any illness or weakness in the body can be caused or exacerbated by stress.  Acupuncture specifically targets the affected systems even as the acupuncturist takes a holistic approach to treatment.

Asthma is one of the first conditions classically trained acupuncturists learn to treat. Acupuncture is used clinically to treat chronic asthma. The acupuncturist will focus on treating the underlying cause of your asthma. The objective is the prevention of future occurrences of this illness. Asthma is a potentially life threatening condition.  If you are having difficulty breathing, please call 911 or go to the emergency room immediately! That means now!  To learn more about the treatment of chronic asthma click here…

Arthritis is a leading cause of disability in the United States. In Chinese Medicine arthritis is called a “Bi Pattern” by “Bi” we mean obstruction or blockage. Arthritis frequent creates other neuromuscular problems which are easier for acupuncturists to treat. These secondary conditions are created because the patient is compensating to accommodate the arthritic joint. Arthritis (Bi) is frequently exacerbated by cold, dampness, and heat. Each type of arthritis (Bi pattern) is treated differently. In Connecticut damp and cold Bi are the most common patterns encountered clinically.

As an American acupuncturist I need to explain how acupuncture works to an American audience. I frequently use the example of how we treat common cold with acupuncture. Most of the acupuncture points for colds are on the upper body. When a needle is inserted into the body, your immune system is redirected to the needle. Since most colds are acquired by touching your nose, eyes, mouth, and ears. Directing your immune system toward the colds entry point helps your body defend and defeat the virus or bacteria. Now this is a very simplistic explanation but it can serve as a starting point for your understanding of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Acupuncture is very effective in the treatment of many cases of constipation.  Water plays an important role in having a successful bowl movement. An older Chinese doctor would tell me “It takes water to float a boat.” It sounded good hearing him say this as he walks around the clinic, with his thick Chinese accent.

I like combining acupuncture with Connecticut (CT) Organic products when treating certain types of illnesses. Organic means “hold the pesticides and unnecessary drugs in my food please.” It means your food was strong and healthy enough to survive in nature. Organic means fewer pollutants in the air and drinking water. The land used to grow organic food must be free of banned substances for 3 years before it meets the Organic standard.

Mesothelioma.com requested that we post the following on the AcupunctureConnecticut.com web site.  “Mesothelioma.com recognizes the value of acupuncture as an emerging therapy in palliative cancer care.

Acupuncture is now widely being used not only in palliative mesothelioma treatment regimens, but for other cancers as well.”
