Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is a holistic system of medicine that is over 3,000 years old. It emphasizes the interconnection of all the systems within the body, and that balance throughout these systems results in overall health. Traditional Chinese Medicine is unique in that it is a comprehensive system that can be applied to treat any disorder or disease. Regular treatments to maintain health are also used to help prevent disease. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are the two core modalities that constitute Traditional Chinese Medicine.
I’m in the process of getting in network with certain insurance companies. Please contact me if you are curious about your insurance plan.
For all other insurance companies, I can provide a Superbill upon request. A Superbill is an invoice using standardized treatment codes for the services performed during your visit. The Superbill can be submitted to your insurance carrier for full or partial reimbursement depending on your policy. Clients should always check with their insurance carriers to verify that Superbills are accepted.
Acupuncture needles are hair thin and flexible. There is little sensitivity with the insertion of acupuncture needles. As the needle penetrates the skin there can be a mild sensation of warmth, tingling, numbness, or heaviness but very rarely is there pain. The needles are left in place for twenty to forty minutes. Most people find the experience extremely relaxing and even fall asleep for the duration of the treatment.
I have seen her weekly ever since, not just for the many aches and pains I acquire through work and performing but also as a general health regimen. Deborah has a very gentle, caring, innovative approach to better health!
Deb is attentive to the health and wellbeing of the whole person at the same time that she addresses specific needs. She is the perfect combination of knowledgeable and compassionate – just what you want in an acupuncturist.
From just one session the spasms in my neck were relieved enough to drastically increase my neck mobility and decrease my pain. Her follow up was just as supportive and thorough as her work in the office.
I’m a tennis coach and being able to stay on my feet is vital. With her help I was able to get back on the courts much quicker than before.
Deborah’s gentle skill with the needles has saved me from nerve pain in my leg on many occasions. I value the contact with her.
I gave myself into Deborah’s capable hands and now I go as often as I can. My trust in Deborah’s gentle treatments guides me away from various issues such as slow metabolism and pain.
After months of chronic pain from overuse injuries from marathon training, with no signs of improvement, a friend recommended that I consult with Deborah. I was skeptical about acupuncture but that changed quickly. Deborah is very professional and knowledgable and she gave me excellent care. After three treatments, the pain was gone completely. Also, her treatments are deeply relaxing, so I continued with acupuncture instead of any kind of sports massage. I can't recommend Deborah highly enough.
I would recommend Deborah in a heartbeat to anyone experiencing pain or stress or wants to have a zen-like experience. She is truly awesome!
Deborah has rid me of intense back pain and a case of sciatica. She has helped my son with his lack of appetite.
