The Finer Points Approach
If you are looking for treatment for anxiety, stress, and physical and emotional pain, you want individual attention. Treatment is provided in 1860 Victorian House in the center of Princeton Borough, New Jersey adjacent to the main campus of Princeton University. At Finer Points, one patient is seen at a time by an acupuncturist who has advanced degrees in acupuncture and herbology, as well as psychology and nursing.
During each session, a highly specialized treatment approach is utilized to help overcome physical pain along with emotional and psychological conflicts. Our treatment philosophy uses a wellness-based model to look at the physical, mental, emotional, and social aspects of your life. The primary goal is to help people feel and be healthy so they can do what they need to do to succeed. Our holistic approach to treatment includes acupuncture, herbal medicine and nutritional consultation. Treatment includes the incorporation of therapies involving yoga, body strengthening, meditation, and mindfulness practices as necessary.
What to Expect
During each appointment you will be asked about your sleep, digestion, energy level, diet, and general health in order to develop a plan that will bring your body back into balance. The goal is to alleviate the symptoms and problems you are having. Your acupuncturist will feel your pulse on both wrists, look at your tongue and palpate muscles on the stomach, neck, and head for tightness and pain. Thin needs will gently be used at specific points along the skin to restore harmony and health. Medicinal treatments with traditional Chinese herbs may be recommended.
This Eastern approach to treatment complements Western medicine due to it's emphasis on psychology and supportive therapy to help the nervous system realign for a reduction in symptoms.
