Patricia Hallam is an acupuncturist practicing in Portland, OR. Patricia evaluates and treats patients based on the concepts of oriental medicine. Acupuncturists complete their evaluations by getting a patient history and looking at and touching the body. Then, they place very fine acupuncture needles into specific points on the body. Stimulating these points has a number of positive effects on the body, including increasing circulation of blood and energy in the body, relaxing tight muscles, calming the nervous system, and affecting various biochemicals released by the brain. All of these actions can help the bodys self healing mechanisms to function more optimally. Many of the bodys systems respond to acupuncture, and it can treat physical pain as well as emotional stress.
