Do you offer acupuncture?
We are proud to offer acupuncture as an adjunct to conventional medical care. Dr. Chartrand completed his training in acupuncture at Harvard’s School of Medicine, in a course designed specifically for physicians trained in western medicine. This is one of only four courses in the country recognized by the American Academy of Acupuncture.
Dr. Chartrand learned a technique of acupuncture known as “Kiiko.” It was named after Kiiko Matsumoto who is known world-wide for developing and teaching this method. The acupuncture treatments typically last one hour for adults and thirty minutes for children. The Chinese meridians are evaluated for tender areas. Acupuncture sites are then chosen to relieve these tender areas, thus improving the energy flow throughout the body.
