Ananda at Dragonfly Acupuncture is hands down one of the most amazing people I know. I’ve been seeing her for years and she never ceases to astound me with her insight and kindness. I was nervous about acupuncture the first time, as I don’t do well with needles, but now I hardly even notice them.
Ananda is gentle and accurate. Her office is small, intimate, and clean. It doesn’t feel like a sterile medical facility. It feels like a little... Read more »
I believe that the art and science of acupuncture and/or acupressure is a valuable health tool. My wife and I first became acquainted with acupuncture when our neighbor, a semi-retired pediatrician and a former head of an American Military Hospital Pediatrics Department in Germany applied it in the rehabilitation of our son who had become a non-verbal quadriplegic the night before he was to start college as a result of an auto accident in which he was a passenger.

Acupuncture for Chronic Back Pain
A Harris Poll released earlier this year found that approximately three out of ten U.S. adults currently suffer from chronic low back pain. To put it another way, that’s an estimated 72.3 million people! Common treatments usually include prescription medications which bring their own complications and side effects into the picture. If you are looking for a drug-free alternative to your back pain, acupuncture could be the solution you have been searching for. continue reading
Treating Sciatica Pain with Acupuncture
Anyone who has suffered from sciatic nerve pain can tell you it can be a very debilitating condition. It is typically caused by an impingement of the sciatic nerve in the lower back but the pain is actually felt radiating down the leg and in the buttock. There are several potential causes of sciatic pain including:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Lumbar spinal stenosis
- Herniated lumbar disc (also known as a slipped disc)
Acupuncture is one of the most gentle and effective treatment options. Traditional medicine may prescribe medication to deal with the pain caused by sciatica but acupuncture is a drug-free option that treats the issue and not just the symptom. continue reading
