Welcome to SynerQi!

Thank you for taking the time to visit my site. Currently, the site contains some basic information regarding Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine, the clinics areas of focus, as well as contact information. I will be adding additional information in the form of articles and other resources, so please check back often for new updates. If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to call or e-mail me. I would love to hear from you!

SynerQi is a Complimentary Medicine Clinic with a focus on Quality of Life Management. A special area of interest is Oncology (Cancer). Due to the associated risks for cancer, I also focus on Smoking Cessation and Healthy Weight Management. Disorders that frequently affect quality of life, such as Temporomandibular Joint dysfunction (TMJ), are also areas of interest.

Treatments are designed on an individual basis, tailored to perfectly suit the needs of the patient. Treating a condition can be accomplished using one or more of the following: Acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Auricular medicine, Moxibustion, Cupping, Diet therapy, and Laser therapy. Do not let a fear of needles stop you from seeking treatment there are many other effective options to consider.

Cancer In Traditional Chinese Medicine, there is actually no term for Cancer. Although there is over 2000 years of documentation that refers to tumors either in the written or pictoral form, TCM has always classified the single disease we term cancer, as many different diseases. Today, it is a well supported fact that for most cancers, treatment with western medicine is the most efficacious approach. I fully support this method of cancer treatment as it is based on clear, well substantiated, medical evidence. Data developed more recently shows that individuals who also receive complementary therapy through acupuncture and TCM have an easier time managing their treatments, are more likely to complete their treatments, and have better long term outcomes. TCM is a complimentary therapy for the treatment of cancer - it is not an alternative to western medical treatment. If we take the strong points of western medicine and TCM, and supplement the weak points of each system with the other, this will provide an integrated treatment that is better than either system on its own.

Smoking Cessation and Healthy Weight Management It is well documented that smoking is related to many cancers, especially lung, and that obesity and lack of physical activity also contribute to the development of certain cancers. Traditional Chinese Medicine can play a significant role in helping you to achieving a healthier lifestyle. Using acupuncture and TCM through the quit smoking process can help to lessen the symptoms of withdrawal and help the body adjust to its new healthier state. It can also optimize metabolic function and aid in stress reduction which promotes efficient weight management. Following recommendations for improving lifestyle through diet and physical activity, as well as working toward a balanced energetic state with the use of acupuncture and Chinese herbal therapy, you can optimize your health and minimize your risk of developing conditions like cancer, heart disease, and diabetes.

Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorder TMJ disorder, (a condition affecting the joints that connect the upper and lower jaws), can cause a tremendous amount of pain and discomfort to those unfortunate enough to experience it. It can limit food choices, cause severe headaches, and result in numerous other symptoms such as dizziness, ringing in the ears, neck and shoulder pain, etc. Acupuncture has been shown to be a highly effective method for reducing the pain of the disorder. It can help to relax the muscles surrounding the joints, as well as treat the underlying stress that often accompanies these overworked muscles. One of the great benefits of acupuncture is that it can be used on its own or in conjunction with western methods of treatment/management.A complimentary approach is often the best choice for optimizing pain control as well as addressing the many other aspects of the condition.

General Health Although Cancer, Smoking Cessation, Healthy Weight Management, and TMJ are special areas of interest at SynerQi, the essence of the clinic is Quality of Life Management. This means that promotion of health and well-being is the key element healthy people are happy people!If you have any disease, symptom, or condition that you are interested in having addressed, please call for a phone consultation or to book an appointment. I will assess your condition and if I think I can help you, I will tell you. If I don't think I can help you, I will do my best to refer you to someone who can.
