Alternative Medicine / Holistic Doctors

It places a greater emphasis on treating people’s emotions and stress levels in order for the patient to truly heal.

Healing Way Acupuncture and Herbals – Kevin Laux, LAc, studies advanced and ancient theories in Oriental Medicine and astutely integrates his knowledge of the healing art with the information your body is giving him to help your body transition into a more peaceful place.  Working hands on for an hour, his sessions feel more like body work than acupuncture though he does use needles at targeted spots. You will feel a positive difference both during his work and immediately after, no need to wait for ten sessions before you can tell how beneficial this therapy is for you.

She runs a sliding scale clinic, providing acupuncture at a low rate to allow more frequency of visits when they are needed.
