• Herbal Medication

    At Awake and Aware, LLC we take the “least drastic means” approach when it comes to the use of Acupuncture.  In other words, if we can achieve the desired outcome with herbal medicine in conjunction with the other healing modalities at our center, then the necessity for pharmaceuticals decreases.

  • If needed, we have a psychiatric practitioner on staff that can assess and prescribe when necessary. Should herbs seem a viable option then the discussion about recommended options will begin.  Based on the initial assessment the acupuncturist will prescribe specific remedies for prevalent symptoms such as impaired sleep, anxiety, depressive symptoms, etc…and as with all treatment the benefits/healing is assessed frequently.
