Chinese medicine has been used successfully for at least 3000 years. Acupuncture can be extremely helpful for stress, anxiety, digestive issues, headaches, hormonal imbalances, pain, and fatigue. Many people are afraid of the pain associated with needles but it is generally pain-free. It is said that patients that should feel no more than a “snick” (if even that) when the needle is inserted.

When you receive acupuncture, you will stay fully clothed (except for your shoes and socks – and it helps if you wear loose clothing to access arms and knees).  You will be laying on your back (usually) or your stomach on our heated acupuncture table.  Dr. Colleen will feel your pulses at your wrist, and look at the shape and color of your tongue.  She will then insert single-use, thin needles (usually between 10-20) in specific points, usually located on your lower arms, hands and lower legs, ankles and feet. Again, most people will not even feel the needle insertion.  At most it will be a “snick” that quickly resolves.

If acupuncture is recommended as part of your plan, generally it is recommended that 3-4 initial acupuncture visits take place within a 2 week time period to see how quickly your body responds to acupuncture.  For some acute pain issues, only 1-2 visits may be needed. If you have been dealing with chronic stress, or complex health issues for some time, however, it may a series of treatments for symptom improvement. The goal is to extend the symptom relief that you are experiencing between treatments.



Naturopathy uses traditional, natural therapies with current advances in modern medicine. Naturopathy affirms the healing power of nature (Vitalism) and that we as human beings are designed to be healthy when we receive what we need, and avoid those things that we don’t need. When symptoms arise, it is a sign that healing is trying to occur. To help restore health, naturopathic therapies include: herbs, nutrition, diet and food therapy, hydrotherapy and homeopathy.
