Dr. Lee combines acupuncture with overall naturopathic medicine. She finds that it is an excellent treatment to help patients experience greater relaxation, peace and ease, which are necessary to healing. Interestingly, it also helps restore a sense of vital energy. By moving blocked energy in the body, acupuncture balances organ systems and helps restore health to the whole system.
Acupuncture is practiced by inserting very thin (no thicker than a strand of hair), sterile, single-use needles into the skin. The needles are not inserted deeply and typically you will feel only a slight pinch when the needle is inserted. Once the needles are in, you enjoy a pleasant rest for a few minutes while the needles are allowed to stimulate energy pathways in the body.
