Realistic Strategies To Survive The Holidays

The Holidays can inspire a flurry of dichotomous feelings. Stress, joy, laughter, grief. They can feel comforting or they can feel frustratingly obligatory. They bring people together and they can also highlight old, uncomfortable dynamics. It’s good to remember that they are just a moment…

The Three Reasons You Can’t Lose Weight

As I have spoken about before in other blog posts, I am a firm believer that failed weight loss has little to do with willpower, laziness, weakness, discipline, or any other such nonsense. I fully believe that failed weight loss efforts are a combination of…

“My goal is to help you be your most vital self.”

I practice functional medicine and acupuncture. I work with people who desire optimal health and well-being so that they may be their best self in everything they do. My mission is to work with you in a one-of-a-kind partnership so that you can live pain and disease free while also feeling your absolute best. All recommendations and treatments are personalized to each individual and their specific needs or concerns. In my practice I am  constantly reminded of the truth in one of my favorite quotes from an Arabic proverb that states, “He who has health has hope. He who has hope has everything.”

Amy is a very passionate, thoughtful and personable acupuncturist. I’ve had back pain for years due to heavy lifting at my job. I’ve been to chiropractors and had massages but none of those compare to the relief I got from Amy’s acupuncture treatment! My stress level and tension have gone way down as well thanks to Amy’s help. Her rates are very reasonable and she’s very thorough.

I feel like I cannot say enough about Amy’s acupuncture treatments. They are beyond what I ever expected and have literally been life changing for me. I suffer from many autoimmune diseases, diabetes, fibromyalga, celiac disease. The pain I was experiencing was completely debilitating. Amy is extremely knowledgeable and explains everything she is doing. She has an intake process each and every time I see her to become updated on how I am doing. The improvement has been remarkable. I just cannot speak highly enough about how special Amy is in her approach and treatments and I am very grateful that I found her!

Amy is a nurturing and insightful Acupuncturist. I started seeing her for severe back pain during my second pregnancy and after one session I felt amazingly better. It was relief to have my range of motion back, and to be able to lift my toddler without excruciating pain. I continue to see Amy to address my overall health during this pregnancy. She has counseled me on everything from nutrition and exercise to supplements that will support both baby and me in the weeks to come.
