Acupuncture, Chiropractic Care and Massage are the cornerstones of my healing practice. Certified to treat sports, auto and work injuries, I am committed to providing state of the art treatment options to my patients. I treat patients in the Asheville, Swannanoa and Black Mountain area every day.
In addition to offering Acupuncture and gentle Chiropractic corrective adjustments, I use infrared massage, ultrasound and muscle therapy to provide deep pain relief. To ensure long lasting recovery, I provide individual home therapy instruction to each patient, including exercises, nutrition and homeopathic remedies.
Acupuncture is as safe for young children as it is for adults, even the geriatric patient. There are no side effects or contraindications for my gentle approach. Patients sleep better and feel refreshed. Obviously, the well-rested patient heals better and recovers more quickly. I use the finest gauge sterile acupoints, so most patients do not feel any discomfort. I give each patient several minutes of relaxing massage before I make a chiropractic correction. The correction is received better by a relaxed patient, the the benefits are long-lasting, because the patient has participated in the process.
I have 25 years of experience as a physician helping the families in my community reach their optimum health. I am committed to reducing the cost of health care and serve on several boards working to ensure health benefits for our children and veterans.
When not in my office, you may find me playing banjo at the Farmer’s Market. Following in my musical footsteps is my daughter, an Owen High School Senior who plays bass drum in the Owen High Band and loves to contradance.
