Acupuncture is the practice of inserting sterile, hair-thin, disposable needles into specific acupuncture points throughout the body to help the body heal a wide range of disorders and imbalances. The effect of needling therapy is to restore blood, nutrient and vital oxygen flow; assist tissue healing, relax muscles, relieve pain, and promote the ability of the body to maintain its biochemistry within specific ranges by adjusting to the demands or homeostasis. Click here for a list of health issues that acupuncture has been effective in treating.

Chinese Herbs

Chinese Herbs are used to strengthen, build and support the body or to clear it of health concerns such as a cold, fever, acute pain or other illnesses. Chinese Herbs may be added to your acupuncture treatment program to build up your internal strength so you can receive the full benefits that acupuncture has to offer.

Nutritional Therapy

Nutrition is a vital part of maintaining good health. According to Oriental Medicine theory, “When a person is sick the doctor should first regulate the patient’s diet and lifestyle.” To that end, nutritional recommendations are fully integrated into the acupuncture treatment plan. Food is medicine, and poor or incorrect food choices may be a major source of health issues. Weight loss, diabetes, asthma and many other health problems can be improved greatly with a healthy nutritional plan. Nutrition therapy is not a “diet”, but rather a critical element in choosing foods with a strong life force to support the body in health and wellness. Nutrition therapy is included in an acupuncture visit, or can be done separately.

I definitely had relief in the left TMJ, the click is gone after treatment and is still gone. I am amazed! Researched the lights last night and am very interested in future treatments. 2 days out from light therapy and acupuncture visit and still have unbelievable decreased amount of inflammation in my left face. The chronic constant dull aching pain for many years has left my face. I feel more alert, have more energy, and no pain or pressure in my body. -HB


In Light LED Light TherapyI am excited to announce the introduction of In Light Wellness Systems LED Light Therapy into my practice of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. The use of LED light therapy has been around for over 50 years, and has emerged from the laser industry. NASA and other researchers have proven that the emerging field of LED light therapy with its superior benefits surpasses the field of laser therapy. It is being used by many medical practitioners such as Acupuncturists, MDs, NDs, nurses, osteopaths, PTs, chiropractors, as well as athletes, counselors, sports medicine therapists, the military, and veterinarians to name a few. AND, it can be used by people at home as part of continuing therapy. The FDA has cleared In Light Wellness Systems LED light therapy for treatment of pain and improved circulation.

If you are looking for 1) immediate pain relief, 2) increased energy, 3) decreased inflammation, and 4) increased circulation, LED light therapy is an excellent therapy for you. Since most dis-ease patterns fall into those 4 categories LED light therapy may be used for multiple internal and external health issues.

LED light therapy works with or without acupuncture so is an excellent solution for those who are “afraid” of needles but are looking for safer alternative therapies to relieve their pain, and live happier, healthier lives!

I have a wonderful report to send you about my experience with the In Light Wellness System you used on me last week.  I came in with bladder infection, hip joint pain due to arthritis and could only walk with a walker since the night before.  Hip joint pain has bothered me for over 2 years,  always at a pain level of 5 or above.  My first light treatment brought my pain level down from a 10 to a 7.  The following morning it went to a 2 and I had no need for even my cane.  Bladder still in pain so I received a second light treatment 2 days later and the bladder infection, pain and discomfort completely gone after 30 minutes and hip joint pain went from a 2 to a 1 and that evening ZERO pain.  I haven't had any day like that in 2 years.  I still have no pain 6 days later, but plan to set another appointment and work on getting the hip joint even better.  Thank you Patti for your knowledge, your caring and gentle manner and Your LIGHT MACHINE!!!  - K.W.

Please call for your complementary introductory appointment for LED Light Therapy. Additional sessions are only $50 per session, and rental or purchase of the light systems may certainly be an option for you.

It's Time To Relax With 20-20-2

We are all under a lot of stress these days, and that stress lends itself into anxiety or other ailments for some people. And, it seems no one has the time to spend an hour getting a massage, or other extended therapies – including acupuncture! So, this quick 20-20-2 Technique helps to wipe away stress and alleviate anxiety in just 20 minutes, by using 2 simple acupuncture points. If you are already familiar with or use acupuncture, this is a great way to introduce acupuncture to friends, family, and colleagues who may be curious or interested in acupuncture, but are “afraid” to try it!

I am now offering the new 20-20-2 Technique at my clinic. It's a mini stress-reducing treatment that takes 20 minutes and I charge 20 dollars for it, and all I do is use just 2 acupuncture points that work like magic!

Give me a call today to schedule your 20-20-2 session today!

Thank you again Patti. Yesterday’s treatment really relaxed me. I desperately needed that. I appreciate your genuine care and concern for people, especially your help for me. -KB

EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique)

EFT or Emotional Freedom Technique is a powerful new discovery that combines two well established sciences so you can benefit from both at the same time:

  1. Mind Body Medicine
  2. Acupuncture (without needles)

EFT is easy to learn, and will help you:

  • Remove negative emotions
  • Reduce cravings
  • Reduce or eliminate pain
  • Implement positive goals


Cupping is a therapy designed to stimulate the flow of blood and Qi within the superficial muscle layers. It is used for sore muscles, tension, neck pain and the common cold. In this therapy, your acupuncturist will place small glass or plastic "cups" over specific areas of your body. A vacuum is created under the cup using heat or suction. They may be moved over an affected area or left in place.

Gwa Sha

Gwa Sha is another technique used to release muscle tension, tightness and constriction. A specialized tool is used to gently scrape or rub the skin over a problem area.

Tui Na

Tui Na translates as "push grasp." It is a massage technique that moves Qi in various parts of the body. It is used to relieve muscular pain, tension and inflammation and to heal injuries.


Moxibustion is a treatment that uses an herb called mugwort. It may be burned on the handle of the needle, above the skin, on salt or on a slice of ginger. This is used to "warm" acupuncture points or areas in order to quicken the healing process.

I had seen Patti on a television program doing a segment on Acupuncture and liked what I heard and saw. She seemed so down to earth and sincere. My husband and I both went to see her, and in the first session we could see that she really wanted to help us. Boy did she ever help! I owe her so much, words can’t describe how grateful I am for her care, education, herbs, and acupuncture treatment. Our coworkers and our grown children notice how well we look and how good we feel. Give Patti a try, for any medical concerns. She WILL change your life if you give her a chance! -RR
