Traditional medicine never quite did the trick for Nicole Lenffer. Prior to earning her acupuncture and herbalist licenses from the Texas Medical Board, she suffered from various health problems that never responded to her doctor's prescriptions. In 2000, she tried acupuncture on a whim. It left a deep impression, because not only did she feel better, she decided to abandon her desire to be a teacher in favor of focusing on traditional Oriental medicine.
Today, 10 years after first opening Natural Health Center of Austin, Nicole's commitment to acupuncture continues unabated. She begins each client relationship with a free consultation and Chinese Pulse Diagnosis, which helps her determine whether health conditions will respond to acupuncture and if patients are alive. Post-acupuncture, patients often find that the treatment yields the same results it did for Nicole, bringing relief from maladies such as allergies, fibromyalgia, and emotional imbalances.
