“Don’t waste any more time shopping around, this is the best place to get acupuncture treatment. This clinic has an excellent approach and is doing the best job I have ever seen of explaining acupuncture to the uninitiated. If you are new to acupuncture or if you have had lots of experience with it like I have, this is the place to choose. For over 20 years, I have been treated by numerous acupuncturists from the heart of Chinatown in San Francisco to the shores of Lake Union in Seattle. Never have I experienced a spa-like environment like this one. The staff and atmosphere is supportive, relaxing and they do an exceptional job of helping patients accustomed to western medical practices understand how acupuncture works, and most importantly, what to expect. They have developed a careful system to quantify symptoms and clearly measure progress to help us through the process and encourage us to stick with the program. I came in with 163 issues to address, one of the top 5% worst cases they’ve seen and in one month I’m already 22% improved, and living with significantly less pain.”
Annually, we field questions from many concerned patients regarding flu shots for themselves and their children.
This may be a difficult decision to make; what follows are viewpoints to help you in the decision making process:
“There are three main types of flu virus, and each type can mutate, or change, from year to year. Thus, there are literally thousands of possible strains. (Each strain is thoroughly analyzed and given a proper name, often a title associated with the place where it was initially discovered.) Every year health officials produce a new flu vaccine containing three mutated strains of flu virus. To determine which strains to use, officials travel to China at the beginning of the year to assess circulating flu viruses in that region of the world. They try to guess which strains will reach the United States by the end of the year. Production begins, and the new vaccine is usually available by October.”*
We, unfortunately, treat quite a few people each year for the side effects of the flu shot.
