Our Philosophy

Acupuncture treats health issues from several levels including structural and constitutional imbalances that can be the root cause of underlying symptoms. The goal is to assist the patient to a state of lasting health and wellness.

Dr. Sirwinski’s Approach

Neal treats in the tradition of his two main teachers: Sensei Masahilo Nakazono and Sensei Kiiko Matsumto. These styles of acupuncture allow the treatment of difficult and complicated cases. By using a systematic palpation method designed to provide instant feedback, the practitioner can follow a palpation sequence that establishes a diagnosis and suggests several treatment options which might be effective for treating a particular patient. Once learned, palpation of reflex points on the neck and abdomen becomes an easy method to use for obtaining instant feedback as to the patient’s condition of health and to the efficacy of your treatment. Acupuncture addresses the patient’s health issues from several levels. By looking more deeply into the structural and or constitutional imbalances, which often underlie a patient’s symptomatic complaints, the practitioner is able to assist in more complete and lasting healing. It is precisely this holistic approach that gives acupuncture the ability to help patients with the most complex issues. Often by seeing the patient’s problem from this broader perspective, the practitioner can solve difficult cases.
