Acupuncture is an essential part of traditional Oriental medicine, a comprehensive system of health care with a continuous clinical history of over 3000 years. Oriental medicine includes acupuncture, Chinese herbology and bodywork, dietary therapy and exercise based on traditional Oriental medicine principles. These therapies work with the natural vital energy inherent within all living things to promote the body’s ability to heal itself.  This system of health care is used extensively by one-quarter of the world’s population residing in Asia and is rapidly growing in popularity in the West. How does it work? Oriental medicine is based on an energetic model rather than the biochemical model of Western medicine. The ancient Chinese recognized a vital energy behind all life forms and life processes.  They called this energy Qi (pronounced chee).  In developing an understanding of the prevention and cure of disease, these healing practitioners discovered that this energy flows along specific pathways called ‘meridians’.  Each pathway is associated with a particular physiological system and internal organ.  Disease is considered to arise due to a deficiency or imbalance of energy in the meridians and their associated physiological systems. Acupuncture points are specific locations along the meridians.  Each point has a predictable effect upon the vital energy passing through it.  Modern science has been able to measure the electrical charge at these points, thus corroborating the locations of the meridians mapped by the ancients.

  • Fatigue, Diarrhea, Nausea Testimonials

    "When I first saw Dr. Ostroff, I was suffering from frequent fatigue, diarrhea, and nausea. For the past 2 years, I saw my medical doctor every 3 or 4 months. While he ruled out any serious conditions, he could not help me to feel better. Over time, these symptoms had gotten progressively worse. My fatigue go so bad that I had difficulty getting out of bed in the morning. During my worst months, I missed at least one day of work each week. I had diarrhea, usually with the fatigue, often several times during a day. This made me reluctant to leave the house because I did not want to be in the car with the urge to move my bowels. Finally, the nauseas naturally affected my appetite. It was another reason I was reluctant to leave the house. While I never vomited, I never knew if the nausea would progress to the point of vomiting. After my first appointment with Dr. Ostroff, I felt 100% better. My energy level increased dramatically. The nausea also subsided. It was reassuring to know what was wrong with me. It was also reassuring that my symptoms were not psychological and physiologically-based. I felt empowered again since I could do things to improve my health. Dr. Ostroff's ability to assess the functioning of various systems/organs of the body, the various supplements and remedies, the acupuncture treatments, and her dietary suggestions are the reasons I am the healthiest I've been in years. It is also the reason my sister-in-law and my mom are patients too! Thank you Dr. Ostroff!" -Neal  Read More
