Welcome to Blue Heron Acupuncture

To my current and future patients:

Blue Heron Acupuncture is a general family practice providing high quality, individualized healthcare for a wide variety of health conditions. I utilize acupuncture, Chinese herbs and nutritional counseling to promote health and wellness for patients of every age throughout all stages of life.

Many people initially come to see me because they are experiencing distress or discomfort and are seeking immediate relief.  While acupuncture is a very powerful tool for alleviating the symptoms of pain and illness, there is so much more that this medicine can do.

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a complete system of health care widely used in many places throughout the world. TCM treats a large variety of acute and chronic conditions as well as helping with health maintenance and disease prevention. In fact, the United States National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the World Health Organization (WHO) both endorse acupuncture as an effective treatment for many common health problems.

I strongly believe that acupuncture and herbs should be an integral part of any individual’s plan for wellness because TCM not only addresses the symptoms of illness, but also the root imbalances that can cause disease in the first place.

Ultimately, I view successful health care as a collaboration between patient and practitioner. At Blue Heron Acupuncture I will work with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that utilizes your body’s own natural capacity to heal itself. You will experience compassionate, effective care in a relaxing, supportive atmosphere that will help build and sustain your health and maximize your sense of well being and quality of life.  

To your health,
