  • Can insomnia be treated with acupuncture?

  • How effective are acupressure slippers?

    I have never heard of acupressure slippers, so I cannot say how effective they are. My personal opinion is that it would be more effective for you to manually do acupressure to your feet, or even better yet, have someone else, such as a licensed acupuncture physician, do it for you. They are properly trained in knowing exactly where the points are and what they stimulate, and it could be beneficial for you. The reality is, one of the side effects of the treatment is to relax the body. It would be very difficult accomplishing a state of relaxation as you walk. Yours in health! READ MORE

  • Can acupuncture help in treating diabetes?

    The answer to your question is yes. You could use acupuncture to address your condition, however keep in mind that acupuncture does not treat the Diabetes per say, but treat the imbalance in the sytstem that created the condition to begin with. That would be known as the root cause of the condition, as well as the connecting signs and symptoms associated with that condition. Acupuncture works very well to bring the body back to balance, but complicated to explain how. I would suggest that you do your own research on the subject and then decide if this is the route you want to take. In addition lifestyle changes will be pertinent to your outcome of managing the Diabetes. Find a licensed Acupuncture Physician in your area and schedule a consultation so he or she may be able to explain more to you in person and help you in making your decision.

  • Is it advisable to take acupuncture treatment along with normal medication?

    It is totally fine to get acupuncture treatments while taking your blood pressure medication. Your medication will not interfere with the process of the ttreatment.

So pay attention to your blood pressure since the treatment may stabilized the blood pressure as well. Find an Acupuncture Physician in your area and get started soon! Yours in Health! READ MORE

  • Should acupuncture be a long term thing?

    Thank you for your question. Yes, I would definitely advise you to find a licensed Acupuncture Physician in your area and use Acupuncture as a natural way of allowing your body to work more efficiently and in harmony by doing a maintenance program. A maintenance program can be once/month or once every 2-3 months after your regular treatment and issues have been resolved. The maintenance program may rely on what your physician see appropriate for your situation. Acupuncture works by way of balancing and harmonizing the body to allow it to perform at its ultimate best. Keeping this in mind, it will always be beneficial to maintain the efficiency and harmony in your body. Stress itself plays a huge role in the body becoming in disarray. Acupuncture relieves stress, harmonizes the body, and the best part of this is there are no negative side effects. Good luck! Yours in Health! READ MORE

  • Is there an acupuncture treatment for treating back aches too?

    Thank you for your question. Your wife is a wise one. :-) The kind of work we do usually affects our bodies in one way or another, due to repetition of movements. Over time this becomes a factor. In your case, your manual labor affects your back. Your work is causing your body some trauma which results in upsetting the natural flow of your body's energy (chi) then resulting in the back pain. Acupuncture works by allowing the body to heal itself, harmonize the body and bring it back to normal balance, This results in pain relief, stress relief, relaxation and a feeling of well being. It may require a few visits to get real results as well as a maintenance program to keep you going long term. Find an Acupuncture Physician in your area and get the help you need. You will be glad you did! In the mean time, make sure you do some gentle back stretches (if you can) in the mornings before you get out of bed. Example, lying on your back and pulling your knee towards your chest, while holding the stretch for 10 slow counts. Alternate them, then do them together. Do this 10 times and do not hold your breath. It will make a big difference as well making you more flexible before work. Remember to get the OK from your Primary Physician before starting any exercise program. Yours in Health! READ MORE

  • Are medicines also involved in acupuncture treatment?

    There are times when the body may be able to heal itself with acupuncture only as a treatment modality. On the other hand, however, depending on the severity of the condition being treated would more likely be the need for herbal supplement/herbal formula to assist with addressing the condition in order to get the best outcome. It is not uncommon to have both. Treatment as well as herbal prescription, however, may depend on a variety of factors as would be explained by the treating Acupuncture Physician. Keep in mind that the sooner an issue is being treated after its inception, the better and faster it may be resolved without the need for herbs, but still... this is also depending the condition being treated. Sincerely, Yours in Health! READ MORE

  • My mother in law feels very sleepy all through the day. Can acupuncture help her?

    Sleeping through the day can be caused by a variety of conditions or factors. The first thing to check is how well is she sleeping at nights. Is her sleep being interrupted / disturbed throughout the night? How many hours of sleep is she getting? How is her energy? Have you informed her doctor of this? Excessive sleeping could also be caused by medications she may be already taking. If she is under the care of a doctor for her kidney disease (as you mentioned) I would suggest you start there first by informing her doctor of her excessive sleeping habit so she can be evaluated by her doctor first. Acupuncture can help. however, I would strongly advise consulting her PCP first to rule out current medication involvement etc. READ MORE

  • Are acupressure and acupuncture the same?

    Thank you for your question. No, Acupuncture and Acupressure are not the same thing, however they may both be used to treat a condition. Acupuncture is done via using tiny needles to insert in Acupuncture points of the body. Acupressure on the other hand... is applying pressure to acupuncture points for period of time to stimulate the energy in the body to bring about relief of a condition. Acupuncture and Acupressure can be done at the same time, however not to the same points. The difference is Acupressure is non-invasive while Acupuncture is invasive. During Acupuncture the needle is inserted directly into the acupuncture points by puncturing the skin when applied. Acupressure can be done by anyone as long as they know the points and the indication of those points, while Acupuncture must be performed by a licensed Acupuncture physician. You can reach out to an Acupuncture Physician in your area and request a free consultation. The Physician may be able to show you the difference of both. I hope this may be of help. Good Luck!

I myself, have worked on patients with this type of condition with great success. however treatment may take some time depending on how long your mother in law has had the condition. I would highly recommend using Acupuncture in her case. Find a licensed Acupuncture Physician in your area and help your Mother in law get some relief. Good Luck! READ MORE

    Dr. Allen is a great source for not only feeling better physically but mentally as well. She goes into detail about how your body reacts to certain things such as stress and is more than willing to provide you with coping skills in order to overall feel better. She has been an encouragement to me through some physically challenging times of my life and I never leave feeling worse than when I came in. She is incredibly knowledgeable and loves what she does!

  • Tameka

    Dr Allen is an extraordinary physician that genuinely cares about her patients. Upon my first visit to her office I was in a severe physical & mental health crisis. However after my first visit my health got better & stress level decreased tremendously. I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to meet & be treated by such a wonderful & knowledgeable physician. If you are ready to take control of your health and life I would definitely recommend that you schedule an appointment @ A Balanced You Acupuncture & Wellness Center with Dr Allen.

    I have been a patient of Dr. Allen for over 2 years. She has provided various services during this time period: Acupuncture, Tuina Massage, Cupping Therapy and Electro Acupuncture. I have had improvement in the left side of my back, hip and legs since receiving these treatments. My pain has decreased, better movement in these areas and less swelling. I am more than thankful for these services and would recommend Dr. Allen to anyone that need them.

  • Cheryl

    Rosemarie is an excellent Acupuncturist with an intuitive ability to "learn your body," and treat it appropriately. Her Tuina Massage is a MUST. It is a massage that incorporates Acupuncture Meridians and relieves the pain like no other. Rosemarie is such a kind caring person with healing hands. Thanks for all you have done for me when I would come to you in pain and leave pain free.

  • Brenda

    When I came to Dr. Allen, I had been living with severe plantar fasciitis for a few years. I had been to an orthopedic and was about to start physical therapy and steroid treatments. As a "last resort" I decided to try acupuncture. I am happy to say that after a few months, I am living virtually pain free. In addition to treating the plantar fasciitis, she helped me with stress management and get to the root of the cause (or so to speak.) I would certainly recommend Dr. Allen and her therapy.

  • Kip

    Dr. Allen is fantastic!!! My wife and I were referred by a friend. I was skeptical at first. Never had acupuncture, and was experiencing chronic lower back pain from construction work. I had seen physical therapists, and physicians, and still had the occasional spasm. Spasms cost money and time. After several visits with Dr. Allen, not only had my back pain decreased, but my acid reflux and overall stress levels were starting to lessen in frequency as well. Spasms (knock on wood) have yet to return. She is honest and open. She is knowledgeable and well versed in multiple facets of the healing process. She is comforting. She is an outstanding listener, and she is in a constant state of evaluation. From visit to visit, treatment may vary based on our pre table discussions, and this attention to detail is so hard to find in a big box medical center. Dr. Allen has become a part of our lives, and I consider her a friend. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!!

    I had massage therapy and acupuncture treatment from Dr. Allen. She is very kind and her bedside manner is amazing. I saw Dr Allen for back pain and insomnia issues and her treatment was very helpful in resolving all of my ailments. I definitely recommend her
