Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (AOM) is an ancient holistic medicine that has been used around the world for a good 5000 years. It evolved quite a bit over that time; from using bone slivers for the needles to the sterile stainless steel single-use filiform needles that are used today. AOM engages intrinsic energy, called Qi, in each being. Just like Western medicine, AOM continues to evolve, and studies around the world illustrate its effectiveness. AOM is based on solid evidence based and applied concepts, models, and text from ancient to modern. It has positively impacted human health, wellness, and disease. Some of the most contemporary applications include AromaAcupoint TherapyTM and Neuro-Acupuncture (Scalp Acupuncture).
The World Health Organization recommends AOM. Dr. Walston uses the styles and techniques that are best suited for each patient at each visit.
