Chinese medicine has a different way of looking at your diet taking into context your specific body type and the environment you live in. You may be surprised at what your best diet should be.
The Chinese pharmacopoeia is composed of thousands of herbs which are combined into herbal formulas. When prescribed properly, formulas have a vast reaching influence on the body, supplementing your treatment and speeding up your recovery.
At Juniper, our belief is that if you can use a modality with no side effects and miniscule risk of damaging the body, that it’s best to start there. We have served thousands of people, preventing them from taking more invasive measures toward their health.
Although western medicine holds an important role in medicine, the dominant model practiced today serves to mask, alter or change the body on a chemical level. These modalities can often come with harsh side effects such as with drug therapies or have lasting repercussions as with surgery.
Acupuncture and the tools found in Chinese Medicine serves to promote healing of the body by boosting its own capacity for healing instead of disrupting further the body's own natural order.
Angelica K.C. Acton LAc, QME
“I believe to give a meaningful treatment with acupuncture and Chinese medicine you first have to establish a sense of trust by truly listening to your patients.
Patients are not just a symptom or a specific area of pain. Symptoms and disease have a history and a story that is told verbally and through physical diagnosis that often has an undetected or more complex beginning.
Whether it is physical pain, mental stress or even rejuvenation acupuncture, I always strive to give the best possible treatments to my patients by seeing them and treating them as a whole.”
Our Patients Say it Best…
I have come to see Angelica many times over the past few years for various ailments. Most recently, I could barely walk when I arrived at Angelica’s office due to an injury I got working out. Angelica listened to my symptoms and knew I had a bad case of sciatica. She treated me with acupuncture and cupping. I left the office feeling like I could dance and I had to give her a big hug! I listened to her advice on how to take care of myself over the next week and was able to recover very quickly. She is my godsend.
