What is Acupunture? 

Traditional Chinese medicinal practitioners have been treating pain with acupuncture for more than three thousand years. Now Western health practitioners recognize the effectiveness of this ancient treatment. Several peer-reviewed meta-analyses show statistically significant benefits for patients suffering from musculoskeletal pain, chronic headaches, and arthritis - even when compared to standard Western treatments.

The science is in: Acupuncture just works.

So how does it work? By gently activating acupuncture points to stimulate nerves, muscles, and connective tissues, thus allowing the body to increase blood flow and consequently balancing the body’s energy or "Qi". The balance of this energy, otherwise known as homeostasis, releases natural painkillers. In other words, acupuncture helps your body heal itself.

Combining cutting-edge research with this ancient healing technique, Dr. Henry incorporates acupuncture treatments into her holistic healing program to treat a range of disorders and symptoms. For many patients, dramatic results can be achieved in just one 30-minute session. Others notice significant improvements in their symptoms one or two days after the first session or gradually over a course of treatments.

My approach to acupuncture is no different than a conventional physician’s approach to any evidence-based treatment modality. I start with what experience and literature has proven to be effective; I then take the next step and tailor that standard of care for each of my patients. I see it as my goal to make sure these treatments don’t just work in the abstract, but really work for you as an individual.
