Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the oldest continually practiced health care system on the planet. At over 3,000 years old, it's still going strong because it delivers results for many conditions. It's a different mindset. We look for patterns of disharmony rather than the western approach of isolating diseases.  (This page describes our services. Please see the FAQs for conditions treated and more.)

Acupuncture Beachside - If, after a complimentary consultation, we agree to work together, we usually draw from these three major areas, because diet & lifestyle are integral to overall health.

ACUPUNCTURE - traditional needles which are pre-sterilized, very thin & solid - no bigger around than a human hair, OR no-needle modalities like acupressure, toyohari, magnets, low light laser, micro-current e-stim, cups, gwa sha or tuina or shiatsu massage, moxa, kids' shoni-shin, NET or EFT tapping; and/or objective lab testing to reveal discomfort caused by environmental triggers, barrier breaches, or immune system dysfunctions.

NUTRITION – OM categorizes foods as neutral, yin/cooling, or yang/warming. Trained acupuncturists may suggest ways to restore balance in the body through nutrition. For example: a raw food diet is cold and damp. It's a good choice in a hot, dry climate but, in a cold, or damp climate it could cause fluid retention, slow metabolism, or a sensitivity to cold.

MOVEMENT - Movement improves circulation, sleep, digestion, and confidence. Doctor Ann is a certified Sivananda Yoga Instructor, trained in how the body moves. She often finds simple, yet effective, stretches to reduce pain and restore range of motion, where needed.
