How It Works
We address the root cause
Instead of the mainstream medical approach that focuses on treating symptoms, we treat the whole person to help restore you to your ideal state of health. We dig deep and give you a complete health audit, looking for the underlying causes that are currently preventing you from experiencing vitality and optimal mental health.
We use an all natural approach that your doctor may not be familiar with
Our individual sessions include one or more treatments from the best combination of modern and traditional medicine: functional medicine, acupuncture, Chinese medicine, naturopathy, low level laser therapy (LLLT)/photobiomodulation, IV nutritional drips, diet therapy, lifestyle counseling, and mind-body stress reduction tools.
We help you awaken your body's own healing abilities
Your body is not “broken” and it is absolutely possible for you to take control and resolve your symptoms naturally. We help bring your body back into balance so it can regain its innate self-regulating functions and truly heal itself.
We keep it simple and results are quick
Resolving your symptoms doesn’t have to be difficult or take a long time. Simple lifestyle and diet changes, along with our targeted natural therapies, offer a straightforward and speedy plan of attack.
We focus on how you FEEL -- not just the lab results or numbers
We will provide you with ongoing support every step of the way. Your practitioner will monitor your progress to ensure you are starting to feel better, and where appropriate will adjust your treatment as you improve. We will be there to discuss any worries or concerns you may have, and provide you with ongoing lifestyle and diet coaching to help you manage stress and stay on track. Within a few weeks, you should notice significant changes in your symptoms and overall sense of well-being.
Our approach ALWAYS includes stress reduction
Stress is often one of the causes that may be exacerbating your symptoms. As part of our treatment protocol, we teach you very simple ways to enhance sleep and relaxation that will support your body’s natural healing system.
The Process Is Simple
Free Phone Consult
At your free phone consultation, you and our clinician will discuss your case, medical history, any medications you’re taking, and most important of all, your goals. We want to be certain that our program will meet your needs and there is a high probability of success for you before we move on to the next step.
Detailed Assessment & Treatment Plan
Once your free consultation is complete and you agree to move forward, the next step is your intake appointment. At this appointment, your clinician will take a detailed assessment of your symptom patterns, medical history and other relevant factors, in order to properly devise a specific plan catered to you.
Your first acupuncture session will be performed at this time, and you will be given a detailed treatment plan with easy-to-follow instructions. Your plan may include dietary and lifestyle adjustments as well as key supplements and herbal medicines to address the root causes of your symptoms.
Active Treatment & Symptom Resolution
You’ll return for regular visits (exact frequency to be determined by your practitioner) to ensure close support as you begin to feel the positive shifts of the therapy. We want to make sure your treatment plan is yielding the expected results.
Transitional Care As Your Condition Stabilizes
Once we see stable improvements, we will begin to reduce the frequency of your visits. This usually occurs after about 8-12 visits. Typically you would start out coming regularly, then once a month for a couple of visits, and then you will no longer need regular treatments.
We’ll be here in case you ever want to come in for a tune-up or to address other health concerns.
Of course, many of our patients do wish to continue with “ongoing maintenance” and we are happy to work that out with you, should that be your wish.
Taking Care of Your Friends and Loved Ones
We pride ourselves on the fact that 80% of our new patients have been referred to us by our past patients or people in the community who have witnessed their friends and loved ones receiving life-changing benefits from our work.
So we very much look forward to helping your friends, family, and loved ones on their journey to a more joyful, energetic and purposeful life.
An Unparalleled Track Record of Excellence
Our mission is simple: Exceptional Caring. Exceptional Results.
Months ago, I was forced to take medical leave from work for anxiety and depression. In my search for healing, I decided to try acupuncture for help with my addiction to sugar. Kat helped me unravel my story. We began the journey of discovering how I could love me unconditionally. Today, I have new ways of acting on life rather than reacting to life. I am returning to work a different person. Kat healed my mind, my body and my spirit. Read more »
I came to Acubalance in November 2017. I was on an emotional roller coaster and decided I needed help. A friend suggested acupuncture and had heard of amazing success stories from Acubalance. I had a phone consultation and set up my first appointment, not sure what to expect. I met Kathleen Lee and immediately felt at ease. She listened to my story with reassurance and understanding and I knew I had made a good decision. Read more »
Last month a new patient came to me suffering from postpartum depression. I treated Janice with a combination of acupuncture and craniosacral therapy. The rest of that day, she felt relaxed, light, and happy. This relief lasted until the next morning when the anxiety came back full force. After the second treatment, she experienced the same relief, but it lasted the entire week. Her sleep improved, her appetite came back, and she was bonding with her son in a new way. The anxiety was gone. Read more »
