Acupuncture In Corvallis, Oregon

Balance Point Acupuncture is an environment of calmness, where peace welcomes you. All clients are on their own path and seek Chinese Medicine when it is appropriate for them. Therefore, it is important that each individual feels cared for and nurtured.

As a practitioner it is my intent to teach people that health and wellness are not based on physical factors alone. It is also important to share and increase the knowledge regarding Chinese Medicine as an alternative – though traditional – model of health care. Healing isn’t about fixing the symptom with a band-aid. Healing incorporates an entire process of going to the root, and assisting the mind, body, and spirit accordingly. All aspects are addressed.

I primarily work with Traditional Chinese Medicine theory, utilizing the principles of yin and yang, and the zang-fu organ system. In addressing pain, I focus treatments around the style of Dr. Richard Tan. For Tan, distal acupuncture points are used, instead of local points at the site of pain or injury. Most pain can be addressed with treatment points from elbows to fingers and knees to toes.

I also incorporate Gua Sha and Fire cups as a modality, as well as incorporating the use of Chinese herbs to propagate treatment. Nutritional supplements and herbs are recommended to support and assist the body physiology when necessary.
