greater Concord area!
Dr. Smith is known for meeting her patients “where they’re at” to help them achieve goals and enjoy improvement in their quality of life. For some people, that means being able to get back in the kitchen to bake Thanksgiving pies, and for others it may mean returning to long-distance bicycle riding or being able to play on the floor with their grandchildren.
A gentle, hands-on way of manipulating the body used to realign structures, improving blood flow and nutrition to the tissues. By correcting posture and positioning, the patient is able to feel more at ease in everyday movements and healing can happen!
“Medical Acupuncture”? The term indicates that the acupuncture is being done by a physician. Medical Acupuncturists are trained in both evidence-based Western medicine and in acupuncture. They have the background to examine a problem, make a diagnosis, and provide and evaluate treatment options from the perspectives of both Western medicine and acupuncture.
