The Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture offered at BERKSHIRE ACUPUNCTURE & WELLNESS can be an important part of your integrated healthcare experience. Studies have shown that patients who use a multi-faceted approach benefit from a healing process that’s more balanced and whole. When used alone or in conjunction with other types of medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture supports the benefits of Chiropractic, Osteopathic and Western medicine, and can enhance the outcomes associated with each. It also helps to minimize side effects from treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation and prescription pharmaceuticals. Some of the many health issues we treat are stress reduction, pain management, low energy, hormonal imbalance, sleep issues, weight control and preventative health.

What you do, and how you think, is connected to how you feel. Traditional Chinese Medicine takes the whole person into account. I am here to listen and help you navigate all aspects of your health so that you can make the best possible choices concerning your well-being.

“I have the pleasure of sharing many patients with Michelle. This has been a great experience for both me and my patients. Since Michelle and I confer about our patient's progress, they feel supported by both of us being able to communicate about their health. Patients report back saying that they feel understood and respected and appreciate being recipients of a treatment team that looks out for them. We have also provided a case presentation to the Fairview Medical Staff on the benefits of having a collaborative model and why it enhances healing .”
