The team at Altos Medical Acupuncture knows that holistic approaches to healing should complement, rather than compete with, conventional healthcare. The specialists are familiar with both Eastern and Western modalities, drawing on experiences ranging from working in trauma centers to studying Daoist texts. This duality works in their patients’ favor: no matter the treatment, staff members can work stethoscope-to-stethoscope with their clients' physicians to help them overcome a range of ailments.
Visitors’ physical and emotional concerns are addressed with therapies ranging from therapeutic massage to electrical stimulation. The clinic specializes in the Five Elements style of acupuncture, which allows for diagnoses as well as treatment of bodily or seesaw imbalances. The acupuncturists may augment healing sessions by integrating other holistic treatments, such as moxibustion or cupping.
Lots of people claim to possess the secrets of ancient health treatments, but only a few have the papers to back it up. Annie Wang and Marie Jacobson are two such practitioners; the pair uses the knowledge gained while earning master’s degrees in Chinese medicine to banish ailments with holistic health answers and broaden the definition of what it means to be healthy. Whether faced with everyday aches or complex issues such as allergies, women's health, and fertility, Annie and Marie ease bodily complaints with acupuncture and herbal medicines and bolster minds with information on preventive nutritional and lifestyle choices. They’re also not shy about sharing their knowledge, with Annie adding a touch of Eastern know-how to studies conducted at California Pacific Medical Center and Stanford University.
