Acupuncture

Acupuncture developed in China approximately 3000 years ago. The theory was based on their understanding of the world at that time. It is a complete medical system with diagnosis, prognosis and treatment — all internally connected. It is, however, quite different from Western medicine. There are no drugs or chemicals on the needles and yet most people experience remarkable improvement for a wide range of symptoms and illnesses.  The world Health Organization lists dozens of symptoms and illnesses that are effectively treated with acupuncture.

Herbal Medicine

Chinese herbs are prescribed to normalize imbalanced energy, or Qi, that runs through invisible meridians in the body. At our practice, we utilize Chinese loose herb tea, powder and tablet herbal combinations, and Japanese herbal medicinals to create the optimal preparation. These plant-based preparations are designed to treat the underlying causes of illness rather than individual symptoms.

 
 
 

Cupping & Guasha

Cupping and guasha are powerful techniques that break up congestion, stagnation, and blockage of Qi, thereby restoring the body’s natural flow of energy. In cupping, small glass cups placed on the body create vacuums that disperse Qi. In guasha, a thin hand-held instrument is used to apply focused pressured to the skin. At our practice, we use these techniques to treat pain, reduce inflammation, improve blood flow, induce relaxation and promote general well-being.

Craniosacral Therapy

Craniosacral Therapy (CST) uses a soft touch to release restrictions deep in the body, relieving pain and dysfunction and improving total body health and performance. We test for ease of motion and proper rhythm around the brain and spinal cord, then remove any restrictions to normalize the environment and enhance the body's ability to self-correct.

 
 

What Our Patients Say

 
I have been a client of Acupuncture Family Practice for 2.5 years. Kerry and Judi have been instrumental in stabilizing my pain levels and increasing my immunity to help fight my cancer. Thankfully, I am in remission and I credit Kerry and Judi for their invaluable expertise and care along with my oncology team.
— Multiple Myeloma, 65

I began seeing Acupuncture Family Practice over a year ago for pain management after a diagnosis of frozen shoulder. At that time I had been receiving physical therapy but was struggling with pain. Not only did acupuncture provide me with significant pain relief, but together with Gua Sha I have made tremendous progress in what can be a lingering, tenacious problem. My shoulder is now nearly full range of motion with very little pain. Judi and Kerry have provided an extraordinarily caring, professional approach to treatment which has vastly improved my day to day function.

Judi and Kerry Weinstein have been so incredibly helpful and caring to my family. I first brought my 7 year old daughter to them after being unexplainably sick for almost 2 years, missing school, play dates, and unable to enjoy life. Finally someone suggested acupuncture. I found Judi and Kerry who had me bring her right in. Within 1 month the color came back to her face, the dark circles disappeared from under her eyes, and she was feeling better, going to school, having play dates, and living her life. We are so thankful for Judi and Kerry healing our daughter!
— Chronic Fatigue & Malaise, 7

I am a working mom of 2 who has been dealing with extreme stress due to health issues in the family. This stress has taken a toll on my health, and I carry all of this stress on my shoulders which leads to headaches. Judi and Kerry have helped me through all of this. I am so thankful for all of the help they have given me. Not only have they kept me healthy, I feel they have kept me sane, dealing with each problem that comes along. I highly recommend them and their treatments!
— Chronic Pain, Headaches & Anxiety, 55
