Acupuncture & Wellness Services We Offer
Acupuncture is a 5000 year old complete diagnostic medical system from China that can accurately diagnose, treat and even prevent illness. It is a safe, effective and painless way to treat a wide variety of health conditions and concerns. We all have life energy called QI (chee) flowing through specific pathways or meridians. Sometimes blockages can occur. When this happens we experience symptoms of pain, sickness or more accurately imbalances. Acupuncture is the insertion of pre-sterilized, single-use needles into points along the body that access this Qi and re-establish balance in the individual.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese Herbs have been used in China for thousands of years and have taken great care of the Chinese people throughout their history. There are over 350 herbs we choose from to treat a wide variety of symptoms. They are easier for the body to process than western pharmaceuticals.
Clinical Nutrition is a new and exciting therapy that we use to raise the level of wellness in each patient. With Standard Process whole food nutritional supplements we are able to modulate your body’s function at the cellular level improving energy, mood and overall health.
Autonomic Response Testing
Autonomic Response Testing is a very precise and scientific analysis of the body’s reflexes to help determine the exact nutrients you need to supplement your diet in order to bring about balance and better health. In Autonomic Response Testing (ART), we look for active reflex points, which indicate stresses on body organs or systems that make it difficult for those parts to do their jobs. ART uses muscle testing through biofeedback and the autonomic nervous system to determine disturbances and potential remedies. This assessment tool records generalized and localized autonomic nervous system disturbance and can be helpful in determining the root causes of poor health. Active reflex points do not and are not meant to indicate a disease process or diagnosable condition, and they can appear in the absence of any sign of disease.
There are two key parts: the analysis and the creation of a personalized health program. Default medical treatments and drug prescription for illness and disease usually do not take into account all the options you have. This narrow-minded, blanketed approach to medicine unfortunately neglects alternative therapies which quite often empower the body to act as its own self-healing mechanism.
In our clinic, we use “designed clinical nutrition” to discover and correct the cause of health problems so the body can regain the ability to correct itself. ART testing helps determine areas of stress and also to prioritize the healing process. Years of clinical experience in thousands of cases have shown us that if the priority is not handled, healing of all health issues is slowed or prevented. Please know that we are considering ALL of your health complaints as we design your program, and that our goal is to help you feel better overall. But we must also work with the natural laws of healing to achieve the ultimate goal: optimal health for your whole life.
What our customers say
My experience with acupuncture at Tigerlily Acupuncture was amazing. As an adult I am still afraid of needles. Doug Rutkowski was considerate of my fear and calmed my concerns. The needles are so thin and so fine you can barely feel them! The treatments had amazing results! I have had symptoms of PMS, as most women do, for many years. After only 3 treatments my symptoms were ALL resolved (no more terrible mood swings, cramps, headaches or food cravings!) My husband has even been amazed at the transformation! It’s amazing to feel “normal” all month long-every month! Thank you Tigerlily for giving me back quality of life-every day!
Thank you so much for all that you do! Living healthy is such a gift!
