Acupuncture is a medical system that has been used to diagnose, treat and prevent illness for over 2000 years. It is thought to have originated in China and has its roots in ancient Taoist traditions. At HAC we combine this ancient tradition with current day research and scientific understanding of how Acupuncture effects the body. Modern Acupuncture is performed by inserting fine needles into specific points along the body that has been shown to locally relieve pain, relieve muscle tension, move fascia and globally effect how the brain both functions and interprets bodily signals.

Chiropractic is a healthcare specialty that has been practiced since the late 19th century. Today, it is estimated that doctors of chiropractic (D.C.s) — or chiropractors — treat more than 30 million Americans annually, who turn to chiropractic services to get and stay healthy and pain free. The word “chiropractic” combines the Greek words for “treatment” and “by hand,” since the field is based on the natural restorative power of the body to heal itself without the use of drugs or surgery. The foundation of chiropractic care is the focus on disorders of the musculoskeletal and nervous systems, and the effects of these disorders on general health. Chiropractic care is most often employed to treat neuro-musculoskeletal dysfunction, including — but not limited to — back pain, neck pain, sciatica, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

Heather has been a practicing health care provider since 2009. She believes in the benefit of both Eastern and Western medicine and practices with an integrative approach. Along with being an Acupuncturist, she is a practicing Registered Nurse and has worked with adults, pediatrics, and infants in the neonatal ICU. She became interested in the Eastern model of healthcare after she was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and decided that she needed to take control of her health. It was through this struggle that she was introduced to acupuncture. Regular acupuncture treatment and dietary and lifestyle changes completely changed her wellbeing, and she no longer fits within the criteria of a Fibromyalgia diagnosis.

Heather was so moved by the gift of alternative therapies that she achieved a Master’s degree in Acupuncture. She did not give up on her own health and encourages her patients to follow the same philosophy. Her treatment specialties are Women’s health, reproductive care and fertility, pain, fatigue, emotional wellbeing, digestive disorders and insomnia. Heather enjoys helping people achieve their health goals with a positive and compassionate approach.
