Kind Words from our Clients...

"The results from the treatments have been phenomenal. The racing, obsessive thoughts have ceased along with the painful GI distress that I endured. I am calmer, sleeping better, have lost the bloating and weight gain. The discomfort that I felt, when I ate, is gone too."
- Thanks, JA

"After many unsuccessful months with prescription medicines, I came to Moira to treat my severe daily migraines. After about twelve sessions, my migranes were gone entirely! Providing excellent care in a comfortable environment, Moira focuses on treating the problem itself, not merely the symptom."
- B. Knaack, UT Student

"Acupuncture has greatly reduced my asthma and allergy symptoms. Since I've been seeing Moira, I rarely need my inhaler and I have a lot more energy."
- S.J. Hahn, Environmental Attorney

"Moira's done wonders in alleviating my pain. My wrist injury had never fully healed, and was painful and weak many months later. In just two treatments the pain was substantially eliminated. I now feel no pain whatsoever due to this injury."

"I didn't think there was anything that could help my symptoms from Lupus. After seeing Moira, I feel like a new woman and I'm back at work."

"Moira McCarthy's method of acupuncture has helped keep the carpal tunnel syndrome in my left wrist at bay for many years now. I would not be able to continue in my massage therapy practice without the benefits of acupuncture. I have referred numerous clients to Moira over the years and her treatments have helped them immensly. "
- Craig E. Matthews, RMT

"My choice was back surgery until I went to Moira and did acupuncture. Two years later I am doing great. None of my physicians could tell me why I recently started with a severe problem of edema. Moira’s treatment has given me more relief than any of the physicians. Acupuncture is an amazing alternative."
- Linda Calvisi, Austin

Non-Surgical Alternative to Facelift

July 16, 2014     Leave a Comment

Cosmetic Acupuncture is an effective, safe, non-surgical treatment to reduce the signs of aging. It is a great natural alternative to Botox. It is based on the principles of Chinese Medicine which has been around for thousands of years. It involves the insertion of very thin disposable needles just under the skin’s surface on the face and body where needed to balance energy and encourage healing.

Acupuncture Treats Symptoms of Stress

June 23, 2014     Leave a Comment

As a normal part of life, stress enables us to get things done. If left unmanaged, stress can lead to emotional, psychological, and even physical problems. Stress causes a disruption in the flow of vital energy, or Qi, through the body. These energetic imbalances can throw off the immune system or cause symptoms of pain, sleep disturbances, abnormal digestion, headaches, menstrual irregularities, aggravation of already troublesome health conditions and, over time, more serious illnesses can develop.

Stressful situations that last over a long period of time can create an ongoing low-level stress that puts continual pressure on the nervous system, increasing activity, and can cause the overproduction of hormones. The extra stress hormones over an extended period of time may wear out the body’s reserves, lead to fatigue, depression, a weakened immune system, and a host of serious physical and psychological ailments.

Some signs of stress overload include:

- anxiety or panic attacks
- feelings of constant pressure, hassled and hurried
- irritability and moodiness
- physical symptoms such as stomach problems, headaches, or even chest pain
- allergic reactions, such as eczema or asthma
- problems sleeping
- overindulgence in food, alcohol, smoking, or drugs
- sadness or depression

Stress is often the cause of illness and the deterioration of health. Finding a release valve for your stress can help you stay healthy. According to Oriental medicine, stress, frustration, and unresolved anger can play an important part in throwing the immune system off and allowing pathogens to affect the body. Through acupuncture, these energy blockages can be addressed. Acupuncture points can help energy flow smoothly, and alleviate not only the symptoms of stress and anxiety, but the stress and anxiety itself.
