MEET THE PROFESSIONAL
JEFFREY ELKINS, M.Ac., L.Ac.
My life experiences infuse my desire and ability to help others in their healing journey. I’ve suffered from chronic pain, migraines, chronic fatigue, and some other, personal health issues. I can remember my first acupuncture treatment like it was yesterday. I was suffering from many of these health issues when I first went to see an acupuncturist in South Korea. As soon as the treatment began my migraine started to dissipate and by the end it was gone! Not only did I experience long-lasting pain relief from the treatments, I immediately resonated with this holistic and compassionate approach to healing. I strive to impart my passion for wellness and knowledge of medicine to each and every patient I work with. All of my sessions include a complete intake and diagnosis in order to provide the most effective treatments for patients as unique individuals and not just a group of symptoms. For all my treatment modalities, I provide one on one personalized treatments and provide ample treatment time for an effective treatment. I won't herd you through a multiple room/treatment clinic-like experience. I look forward to meeting you and helping with whatever journey you may be on.

ACUPUNCTURE & HOLISTIC MEDICINE
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine spark the body's remarkable capacity to heal itself though the skilled insertion of very thin needles at acupuncture points selected based on a Chinese medical diagnosis. Choose acupuncture or aculaser if you are looking for a safe and effective treatment for pain and injury, stress relief, women’s health, digestive, psychological, and other health conditions.
NEW PATIENTS Your first session will start with a detailed intake prior to treatment, in which we’ll discuss your health history, chief complaint and overall health. From there, you’ll receive an acupuncture treatment in my relaxing, quiet space. I’ll walk you through the session step by step, and offer a course of treatment and recommendations following your rest. This classical style of acupuncture is a highly effective form of acupuncture backed by the classical diagnosis methods of five element theory and the modern technologies of the Acugraph system (see your energy levels!). Treatments are also available with the Aculaser for children or those uncomfortable or too shy about needles. Acupressure and some massage therapy may also be included for certain conditions.
RETURNING PATIENTS Each return patient session begins with a discussion of your progress, current symptoms, and our focus for the treatment. From there, you’ll enjoy an acupuncture treatment tailored specifically for your constitution, condition and individual needs.
Jeffrey also offers Acu-Thai, Thai massage, Therapeutic Tai Chi and Medical Qi Gong sessions. Jeffrey will consult with you during your first session about any of these services that may have a positive impact on your treatment goals and outcomes.
