As an acupuncturist, she is dedicated to offering alternative and complementary medicine, focusing on maintaining and controlling the balance of the bodys life energy through the insertion of needles into different acupuncture points. The positioning of the needles depend on the health condition or illness that needs treatment. She administers the treatment over a varied period of time, depending on the condition, and the reaction of the patient towards the treatment.
The application of acupuncture on a patient can treat various mental, emotional and physical concerns. Aside from treatment, acupuncture can also benefit from an improved overall well-being and health. Acupuncturists perform a thorough diagnosis on the lifestyle, health history, diet and symptoms of a patient before establishing a treatment plan.
