Gorman Chiropractic and Holistic Health Center offers Acupuncture performed by Laila Wah, OMD 


Traditional Acupuncture and East Asian Medicine help balance all bodily systems: skeletal muscular, circulation, respiratory, cardiac, digestive, eliminatory, and sexual organ systems. It aides the endocrine system, it boosts metabolism and creates a high standard of wellness. Acupuncture is a time tested tool for creating mental and emotional well-being, improved lifestyle, and increased happiness and productivity.

How does Acupuncture do this? Acupuncture accomplishes physical, mental, and emotional well-being by balancing the body and mind which are inseparably linked together. Acupuncture not only alleviates symptoms such as headache, migraine, indigestion, and physical pains, but Acupuncture addresses the root cause of the problem by helping to restore the body’s internal environment.

 In East Asian Medicine the organic function of the entire metabolism and individual organs and their systems play an integral part in one’s total wellness. For example, adrenal exhaustion can lead to anxiety and emotional fragility. 

Acupuncture is both a scientific system of diagnosis, and a treatment for acute and chronic disorders. It is also used as a form of anesthesia But above all Acupuncture is an excellent therapy for the maintenance of good health! Very thin 38 gauged, sterile needs, the thickness not exceeding two strands of human hair, are placed in “empirical” points (acu points), along specific meridians called “energy channels”, which relate to each organ of the body and their specific energetic and organic functions, at a very shallow depth of 1/32 of an inch. Needles remain in place from 15 to 20 minutes per area. Treatment protocols depend on presenting condition and constitution of the patient. Dr. Wah offers a “full body” treatment, in most cases, front and back are treated in the same session.
