As an Oriental Medicine practitioner, Kimberly Vester-Couch treats the cause and the physical expression of a disorder. A treatment plan is designed specifically for the patient based on the root cause of an illness or disorder and the current presentation of symptoms that collectively define their condition. Traditional Chinese Medicine takes a preventive approach to health and wellness. Whether you suffer from aching joints in the winter, allergies that are worse in the spring, or emotional strain and/or stress, Acupuncture can make a difference.
Acupuncture is a very effective treatment for pain. Kimberly Vester-Couch has extensive knowledge of muscular- skeletal interaction from over 30 years as a licensed Shiatsu Therapist. In addition to Acupuncture, Fire Cupping, and Moxibustion, she utilizes Tuina Anmo (syndrome specific acupressure) for palpatory diagnosis and as a treatment option.
