Pain, insomnia, anxiety treated with Acupuncture in Fort Lauderdale

Pain, insomnia, anxiety – these are just a few things I treat using acupuncture and Chinese herbs.  I have been in practice for 13 years in East Fort Lauderdale as a licensed acupuncturist and for a combined 18 years as a massage therapist. I treat a variety of conditions for people of all ages, including infants and children. I am always looking for interesting cases, especially the ones that conventional medicine has no solution for.

If you are someone considering acupuncture you probably have a lot of questions about how it works or if I have treated your particular issue. The best way to answer questions about your condition is in person or on the phone so feel free to give me a call.

If you are here for the fist time it is best to start by perusing the Basics of Acupuncture and the Research pages. For what to expect when you’re first starting out this page will answer that. For the most frequently asked questions, including fees, times, etc., there is the FAQ page. If you’re ready to schedule an appointment click on the Book Session button on any page.
