Acupuncture/Exacerbation of symptoms after acupuncture


VIdas wrote at 2013-03-04 13:55:42
MY PARENTS are receiving ACCUPUNCTURE treatment, and both feel pain, especially, my Dad (big pain, increases). The needles get to different places of the body: head, legs, back,.. My dad hardly can walk now. It seems that the doctor is a good specialist . We hope the pain will disappear, but now it increases into a leg from the back especially to dad. Your comments would appreciate. Vidas Lithuania.

Please ask me about acupuncture and oriental medicine, nutrition, dietary supplements, and herbs. I am always happy to answer questions about how any of these areas relate to your health and well-being, specific conditions, or simply if you would like some information. I specialize in acupuncture for palliative care, acute injuries, chronic illness, autoimmune disorders, bone health, and western supplements.


I am a licensed acupuncturist in the state of California and hold a Master's degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine. This degree includes training for acupuncture, herbs, nutrition, exercise and bodywork. I have work for a decade in the natural products industry both at the retail and manufacturing levels. I have worked using acupuncture in private clinics, community clinic settings and in inpatient care facilities; including hospice and supportive housing residences. I currently practice in San Francisco in a private clinic, making house calls for home bound patients, and working on grant funded community acupuncture projects.

Master's in Traditional Oriental Medicine, Certified Massage Therapist and Health Educator, Reiki Practitioner.
