Who Can Benefit from Acupuncture?
Dr. Ritter uses Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine to diagnose and treat many
imbalances in the body. This is done by careful observation of various patient characteristics
such as artery pulses, skin tone and color, nail beds, tongue color and appearance. Doctors of
Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine have helped millions of people around the world become
pain-free. Not only that but it is also used to maintain health and wellness.
Acupuncture has been around for over 4000 years yet many people think of Acupuncture as
something new. Traditional Chinese Medicine involves the ancient philosophy that Qi
(pronounced "chee") or Life Energy flows throughout the body along specific pathways called
meridians. Physical and emotional trauma, lack of exercise, stress, overexertion, seasonal
changes, poor diet, accidents, or excessive activity are among the many things that can
influence the quality, quantity and balance of Qi. Dr. Ritter will help you find your imbalance
and through the use of painless needle insertion, eliminate pain and restore balance and
harmony leading to optimal health.
Dr. Ritter uses acupuncture to promote "natural healing". Acupuncture can enhance the
body's natural recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health, and
improve overall function and well being. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide
variety of health conditions.
