What makes your practice special when compared with others in the area?
At OCA, we have been very successful in treating people with many different conditions because of the unique styles of acupuncture we practice: Sports Medicine Orthopedic Acupuncture and Japanese Acupuncture. Derived from the I Jing and the Nei Jing—two of the oldest Chinese classical texts dating back 3,000 years —both treatment styles seek to harmonize the body´s vascular system (vessels, blood, and oxygen) with the nervous and organ systems in order to effectively transport vital nutrients to damaged areas of the body. This is achieved by needling acu-points distal to and corresponding with the problem areas. And in addition to the acupuncture, we also utilize the other modalities of Chinese Medicine: Herbs, Moxibustion, Tui Na Massage (Orthopedic), Cupping, Gua Sha, and Nutritional Counseling.
