Though they hail from different backgrounds, the three acupuncturists at Michigan Associates of Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine share a fundamental belief in the overarching connection between mind and body. At the center’s core is founder Julie Silver, a board-certified acupuncturist who has been espousing the benefits of Chinese medicine in the media since setting up shop 13 years ago. Julie initially turned to acupuncture to seek relief from her own health complaints, and as a result, switched careers to focus her energies on Chinese herbal medicine. At Michigan Associates of Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine, these practices come to fruition as the team works to correct imbalances in the body, which are believed to be major contributors to a wide array of health-related problems, such as anxiety, pain, and chronic cases of the willies. Julie and her staff address these symptoms and conditions with acupuncture and Chinese herbs, providing a special cache of treatments for women's health, fertility, and pregnancy issues.
