Originating in ancient China, Acupuncture is a system of integrative medicine that involves pricking the skin or tissues with needles, used to alleviate pain and to treat various physical, mental, and emotional conditions.
Anjali Desai, Board Certified Acupuncture Physician, has been practicing Chinese Medicine and Herbology for over 13 years. Her philosophy in treating patients is to get results in the least challenging way possible. The goal at the forefront of every treatment is to provide relief from whatever may be affecting you. Her candid bedside manner and her honesty about expectations from each treatment is refreshing.
The main thing to understand about Chinese Medicine is that you are treated as a whole person. Unlike other modalities, as an acupuncturist, Anjali will not just examine the one symptom that is affecting you. Instead, she will examine that specific symptom along with the numerous other possible underlying issues that are creating the pain/disease. For example, if you present with back pain, she will also need to learn about your sleep patterns and help you to understand how the two are and can be interconnected. Next, she will use her techniques to help cure or resolve all issues and lead you feeling pain free.
Anjali has had the honor of helping over a thousand patients improve with her acupuncture treatments. Her expertise ranges from treating symptoms related to anxiety, depression, migraines, neuropathy, insomnia, chronic orthopedic pain, digestion, infertility to fibromyalgia. She is well versed in several symptoms, alignments and diseases and is confident that her expertise can benefit you. If she cannot help, she is most honest to admit that she is not the appropriate fit and is happy to give a recommendation as to whom she believes can most benefit you.
Moreover, Anjali treats infants, children, tweens, teens, and geriatric patients. Her experience and skills are far reaching across the ranges. She utilizes acupuncture, cupping, gua sha, auricular acupuncture and Herbology as part of her treatment methods. Your treatment includes all the modalities she may deem fit for your individualized treatment. It is most exciting to know that there is a treatment in sight that can bring relief! Even more exciting is that Anjali’s treatments do not have any side effects like traditional pharmaceutical medications.
If you choose to treat with Anjali, you will not be just another patient file or insurance billing code. As one of her cared for patients, she will develop a customized treatment plan specific for your individualized needs. After all no one person’s body is completely the same as the others. With her compassion to understanding you and applying her years of background, training, and experience, she will work to bring balance to your body. A balanced body - to bring about an overall healthy, happier quality of life.
