What We Treat

Kidney Stones & Chinese Herbs & Acupuncture

Do you suffer from recurrent kidney stones?

If you do, the Stone Formula, formulated by Dr Mok, might be just the formula for you to keep recurrences to a minimum or to help you through an acute bout of kidney stones.

Kidney stones can form when the urine contains too much of certain substances. These substances can create small crystals that become stones.  Kidney stones may not produce symptoms until they begin to move down the tubes (ureters) through which urine empties into the bladder. When this happens, the stones can block the flow of urine out of the kidneys. This causes swelling of the kidney or kidneys, causing pain. The pain is usually severe.

The main symptom of kidney stones is severe pain that starts suddenly and may go away suddenly.  The pain may be felt in the belly area or side of the back.  The pain may move to groin area or testicles.  Other symptoms can include abnormal urine color, blood in the urine, chills, fever, nausea, and/or vomiting. continue reading »

Headaches, Migraines and Acupuncture

Do you suffer from headaches? If so, you are not alone. Over 50 million of us experience some form of headache at some point in our lives. Whether you experience minor head pain or severe migraines, headaches can take valuable time out of your day and your life, and leave you searching for relief.

One option is to reach for pain relieving drugs and other pharmaceuticals. This usually works for the short term, and is usually successful in stopping a headache quickly once it has started. Unfortunately, these medications do not address the “root” causes(s) of the headaches. I guarantee you are not suffering from a deficiency of aspirin. Many of these medications, when used over long periods of time, can also cause unwanted side effects.

Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) offers a safe and effective approach to relieving headache pain, without causing harmful side effects. Chinese medicine incorporates a comprehensive diagnostic protocol that can help me, as your acupuncturist, to understand and address the “root” cause(s) of your headaches. continue reading »
