Welcome to Medical Acupuncture
I have created this website to share my passion about medical acupuncture and myofascial acupuncture in particular. As a physician practicing acupuncture, I seek to integrate western, anatomical medicine with acupuncture and other physical and energy based forms of healing. It is my great privilege to be able to share with you insights, resources, and practical advice from that interface. For anyone who is suffering or striving for greater well being, my hope is to help you achieve healing, comfort, and a more complete understanding of your condition.
In this era of emphasis on “evidence driven medicine,” most people still do not realize that for several conditions there is more evidence supporting acupuncture use than for many other procedures in use. Allow me to introduce you to this powerful, effective and safe approach to your health, and to engage with you, as well, in a broader conversation about health and healing.
Yours in health and wellness,
-Marsha Haller, MD
Reflections on pain and shifting guidelines: inspired by the latest recommendations for treatment of low back pain published in the Annals of Internal Medicine, April 2017
Pain. Its a big deal. Its been with us (meaning humans and other animals) since way back in evolutionary times, so we can assume it has served a purpose. No doubt there has been awareness of pain for as long as we have possessed awareness. Nevertheless, the way we think about and treat pain has varied tremendously over the years and across the landscape of culture.
