You Want Pain Relief:
There is no need to suffer from the endless pain that limits you and keeps you away from what you enjoy. Acupuncture is well known for it's ability to decrease physical pain by regulating Qi and Blood flow. When a fine needle is inserted, it creates a micro-trauma that brings healing factors to the area, and endorphins, our body's natural pain killers are released by the brain. Cupping, Tui Na, Gua Sha, and herbs can enhance acupuncture's effect.

You Want to Restore Calm and Inner Balance:
If you have physical, mental, and/or emotional pain, it becomes the focus of your attention. This takes your mind and heart away from what you most enjoy, such as quality time with your family and friends, and hobbies that brighten you up. You may not be able to walk with your grandchildren, go on that hike you always wanted to do, or feel your inner muse. What limits you can come in many forms, such as back, neck, and shoulder pain, intense menopausal hot flashes, menstrual problems, or fatigue, anxiety, and depression. Acupuncture can relieve this suffering and help you rediscover who you are, which is a person with increased clarity and vitality, free of the pain that takes so much effort for you to endure. With Acupuncture, YOU can enjoy an energetic, contented life with little or no suffering. There is no longer any need to feel like your life is passing you by. There is no need to give up your dreams, passions, and goals. With the help of acupuncture you can let go of the pain you carry, and finally be yourself again.

You Need Help With Pregnancy or Menopause:
At Hoku, we are here to help you on your journey from adolescence to old age. Infertility: With all the hormone disruptors, drugs, chemicals and food additives in our inner and outer environments, more people of both sexes are experiencing the heartbreak of infertility. Worry, frustration and adrenal overdrive makes it less certain that conception will occur. A close look at your Chinese Medical Pattern, diet, water intake, medication history, and lifestyle will be taken into account before an acupuncture and herb regimen based on your particular situation will be commenced.

Pregnancy: Once Pregnancy occurs, we will look at supporting you and your developing baby and give acupuncture for any nausea, heartburn, fatigue, low back pain, carpal tunnel that may occur. Babies in breech position can turn with help of moxibustion. Close to delivery we can prepare the perineal area and then help to stimulate labour, with the all-clear from your midwife or obstetrician.
PMS, Pain, and Period Problems: Acupuncture and/or TCM herbs work very well, alleviating pain, regulating cycles and calming mood-swings.
Perimenopause/Menopause: Your cycles may be more painful, heavier and come closer together. They may be accompanied by horrendous mood swings. Or your cycles become scanter, further apart, or stop and you experience hot flashes. If either of these scenarios are "you", acupuncture and or TCM herbs can relieve your distress. Do you want to age gracefully? Angela is also trained in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture.

You want to Decrease Your Medications:
Angela, our acupuncturist, is not only a registered acupuncturist, she is a registered pharmacist. She can talk to you about your medication concerns, recognize side-effects that are often "disguised" as health problems, catch drug-herb-supplement interactions, and help you, with Traditional Chinese Medicine, get off your medications both safely and effectively. This service can be part of your acupuncture visits, or time can be set aside, solely for that. Do you want peace of mind when it comes to being advised on your prescriptions? You've certainly come to the right clinic.

You Want Someone Who Listens:
You will quickly see that Angela has a gentle, trustworthy nature. You will be heard at Hoku Integrated Healthcare. You will be given the one-on-one attention you deserve.

Hoku: a Joining of the Valleys

Hoku is an acupuncture point that symbolizes a joining of the Valleys. At Hoku Integrated Healthcare, we offer you a balanced fusion of Eastern Philosophy and techniques with modern tools of Conventional Medicine, from acupuncture and teaching meditation to medication advice and interpretation of your lab tests. This is integrative medicine. Hoku, the acupuncture point, is also considered to be the "Letting Go Point par Excellence" for those of us who wish to get rid of some long-held limiting beliefs. The imagery of Hoku reminds us that breath itself is the ultimate of letting in and letting go, which paradoxically leads us to inner freedom. Looking at the various meanings behind Hoku, we can see a joining together of body, mind, and Spirit.

How Hoku's Focus is Unique: At Hoku, we realize that health is not just the absence of physical disease. Holistic Health involves helping people to smoothly move along with life's challenges and transitions like water runs in a river or a stream. Acupuncture can help remind us how to live life in this way, imparting a sense of meaning in a joyous, contented manner. By discovering and treating our barriers to health we are more able to relax into a state of mindfulness, which in turn keeps us physically, mentally, and emotionally healthy.

For those of us who are on a journey of Spiritual Practice, be it Yoga, Prayer, Meditation, Shamanism, etc, and yet, naturally experience what appear to be obstacles to growth along the way, acupuncture can help us move beyond that "stuckness", and those ego-based self-defeating belief systems that lead us out of "Now" and bring us suffering. There is nothing "wrong and bad" about having these experiences in our practice. They are, indeed, part of the process of inner growth. At Hoku, you will be actively listened to, and be held in a sacred space where, acupuncture, Reiki, Qi Gong, and Jin Shin Do® acupressure can help you come back Home to a place of connection, to the Person that is authentically You. You can be Christian, Agnostic, Buddhist, Wiccan, Taoist, and/or of any religion or philosophy on a quest for Light and further benefit from acupuncture and Jin Shin Do® Acupressure. Here you will further learn to let go and find your way Home.
