  • Do you recommend acupuncture for children?

    Acupuncture on children can begin as early as age 4 or 5 with no retention of the needles. At age 9, retention of the needles may only last 5-10 minutes. I have treated children for allergies with the acupuncture which calms the nervous system and reduces the immuno-response to allergens. In addition to the acupuncture, I recommend an herbal supplementation such as Cang Er Zi San. John Holt, Dipl OM, LAc READ MORE

  • Can acupuncture really help with hair loss?

    Yes, acupuncture can help with hair loss. My wife had a sudden loss of hair in one spot. The western doctor looked at her and said sorry, but that is probably permanent and if it grows back it will probably be grey. So, throwing those comments out the window, my wife used acupuncture, nutrition and sound therapy to promote hair growth. Specifically, she used a 7-star hammer twice a day to tap on her scalp for about 10 minutes a session. Today, her hair has grown back with deep red curls. The western doctor is at a loss for words when they see each other. Don't give up and don't despair, our bodies are quite adaptable and regenerative given the right impulse you can regrow your hair.

  • Can insomnia be treated with acupuncture?

    Yes, acupuncture and herbs can treat insomnia. There are a couple different kinds of insomnia. Some people cannot fall asleep while others consistently wake up in the middle of the night around 3 am. So, after discerning which type of insomnia you suffer from, your acupuncturist will treat you for the underlying imbalance. If you are the type of person that cannot fall asleep, perhaps there is too much energy in your body from your diet and exercise. If you wake in the middle of the night, perhaps your liver is working too hard to cleanse your blood and hence generating heat, which disturbs your mind. Avoid sleeping medications because the long-term effects are worse than the long-term effects of insomnia. John Holt, DiplOM LAc READ MORE

  • Does acupuncture help in treating depression?

    Yes, acupuncture does help in treatment of depression. Depending on the origins of the depression, the treatment might vary. Usually, a combination of acupuncture treatment, herbal medication, diet, and exercise can eliminate most underlying causes of depression. At 19, I feel your daughter is too young to begin a lifelong course of medication. So, do look for a local acupuncturist to begin treating your daughter. John Holt, LAc., DiplOM READ MORE

  • I am having a lot of stress due to menopause and I am unable to sleep soundly. Should I go for acupuncture treatment?

    Yes, acupuncture works very well for menopause, both to relieve stress and balance your hormones. Also, there is an herbal formula, Zhi Bai Di Huang, that is used for menopause symptoms such as hot flashes. I hope this is helpful for you. John Holt, LAc, Dipl, OM READ MORE
