Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture
Ancient Therapies, Modern Remedies

I was suffering from gout  and COPD when I was treated by Dr.  Whitehead. I couldn't walk and I was on oxygen constantly. I wasn't even able to leave my house because I couldn't get around. I can now walk and do not need to be constantly on oxygen.

30 yrs in traditional medicine and I'm convinced that Acupuncture along with the "good" that traditional medicine has to offer = profound healing as close to nature as possible!! It is my FIRST choice "medicine" in my general medical practice!!


We have been trying to start a family for over two years and I was taking IVF treatments but I could not conceive. We heard about acupuncture through a friend and we tried it . After only two treatments we saw the two lines we had thought we'd never see! I was beyond amazed that those small needles were able to help me so quickly.

Dr. Whitehead has been the best choice I have made. Walking was painful for me. I have Arthritis in my left hip. After my first visit I knew I would be returning. I let everyone know what Acupuncture has done for me. Thank you Dr. Whitehead!

Patient Testimonials

I first entertained the idea of trying acupuncture when an M.D. I was visiting for a stiff back used pressure point injections to help. My recovery was immediate and he said that he injected saline solution into the same points an acupuncturist would use. I decided that if it was the “points” that made it work, it would be better to use hair-like needles rather than great big painful ones. Most people who go for back pain leave the office of their primary care physician armed with prescriptions for pain killers and muscle relaxers – and all the pain they arrived with. I left with almost total relief, no prescriptions, and a glimmering idea that I should seek out more information about oriental medicine.
Much later I suffered from an elbow so sore that I could not lift or push with the arm. After weeks of pain I decided to try acupuncture. One visit to Dr. Whitehead restored the use of my arm and a second visit left it as good as new. Since that time I’ve gone in with a variety of aches, pains, and other symptoms and experienced relief each and every time. I’m always able to get an appointment the same or next day. Generally, I feel much improved the moment I leave the office, but the healing nearly always continues and I feel better the next day and then the day after that. It is nothing short of miraculous.
My only regret is that it took me fifty years to begin using this pain-free and phenomenally effective method of healing. It does not come with a mile-long list of terrible side effects; the only thing you get is improved health. I recommend it all the time and am so grateful that my path crossed with Dr. Whitehead’s.

I came to Dr. Whitehead after a year and a half of infertility and a pregnancy loss after conceiving with the help of Clomid. After only two short months, I was pregnant! We're expecting our first child in February, and we couldn't be more thrilled! Acupuncture saved us from so much heartache.
