Through the use of sterilized needles placed specifically along the acupuncture points along the body meridians, a plan is designed that specifically addresses your needs. Joan uses several treatment styles including Five Element, Traditional Chinese Medicine, and tendonomuscular trigger point treatments.
Jin Shin Do® Acupressure
”The way of compassionate spirit”, is finger pressure applied to points along the meridians to help decrease muscle tension and increase the flow of Qi for the purpose of relief of aches and pains, decreasing stress, assisting to clear emotional blocks and develop mind-body awareness.
The use of suction cups, often along the back, in order to relieve pain, to remove deep stagnation and toxins in muscles and connective tissue, to reduce swelling and relieve tension.
The use of a spoon to scrape the skin surface to bring more blood flow to the area and heal more quickly by releasing heat from a blocked area.
Heat and Moxabustion
The burning of mugwort herb near the skin and the use of a heat lamp to facilitate deep healing.
The use of electrical stimulation in order to treat pain along the Acupuncture meridians
Recommended use of natural foods that align with the season and with each client’s particular needs or diagnosis.
Qigong and Meditation
Exercises using the integration of physical postures, breathing exercises and focused intention for cultivating energy for healing, increasing vitality and self-awareness, and maintenance of health.
Prescribed movements in a particular range of motion to facilitate the strengthening of muscles and increase the range of joint motion.

Joan has made a huge difference in my life. I thank her from the bottom of my heart for giving me my life back.

Finding Joan has been wonderful. She is the first person that truly listens to every detail and wants to help improve your health. I've seen many different doctors that never provided much answers let alone pain relief. Joan is compassionate, knowledgeable, and works as your partner to improve your health. She shares her knowledge and her plan with you while she provides encouragement and support throughout the process of pain relief and healing. I am finally feeling better and on the road to recovery thanks to her.

I was at the end of my rope with health issues that were causing panic attacks. I met with Joan and she set up a treatment plan that put me back on track with my emotional health. I am so grateful that the acupuncture treatments gave a feeling of well being and I can deal with life's daily issues. Thank You Joan!

My back and leg pain was reduced immediately. She is delicate with the use of needles, sensitive to those folks who are not needle lovers.

I came to Joan for acupuncture for my carpal tunnel. Much to my surprise, it also helped me with headaches and back problems.
-- KA, Pottstown
Joan is amazing. I had never had acupuncture before and she put me right at ease... I wasn't sure if it would hurt but not only was it painless, it actually felt good. I noticed an immediate difference which actually felt even better the next day. I did not come to Joan for my insomnia nor emotional issues yet as my treatment continued the insomnia became history and I felt a profound shift in my emotional issues, an ease that remains still. I trust her and recommend her to anyone who wants to improve not only their health but their life.
