Learn About Our Treatments


Acupuncture is among the oldest natural medicine still used today. It has been practiced for thousands of years. Chinese culture documents 3,000 years of using acupuncture as a therapeutic method. European history of acupuncture use may be even older.

A 5,300 year old man’s body was found in the Italian Alps with what appears to be tattoos tracing meridians and acupuncture points still recognized today. According to the philosophy of traditional acupuncture, energy circulates in ’meridians’ located throughout the body.

Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Doctors are world class experts in natural medicine. Trained as primary care doctors, naturopathic doctors are licensed to diagnose disease and order appropriate labs and imaging. Therapeutics used are personalized to the patient and include herbal medicine, homeopathy, hydrotherapy, dietary changes and lifestyle recommendations. Naturopathic medicine is based on the belief that the human body has an innate healing ability. Naturopathic doctors (NDs) teach their patients to use diet, exercise, lifestyle changes and therapies to enhance their bodies’ ability to ward off and combat disease.


Nutrition is the cornerstone of good health. More and more evidence is supporting the idea that proper food choices are linked with disease prevention and halting progression of existing disease.

Supplementing with key nutrients that are missing from the average diet and difficult to obtain from the most conscientious diet is important to optimizing health. Focusing on “food as medicine,” Pauline Weissman will address any of your health concerns from a dietary prospective in addition to providing very specific nutritional advice.

What People Are Saying

Bianca L. -

Acupuncture Patient

[Our daughter] was born naturally via unmedicated birth! (Yay no induction!!) I feel wonderful already and sh is doing wonderfully as well! Please pass along extreme gratitude to your team, especially Deirdre and the front office staff for constantly working the schedule to squeeze me in!

Thank you so much again for all your help and guidance!

Deanna S. -

Acupuncture Patient

I had severe back and leg pain since June. I could not walk, sleep, nor live. I was asked if I was willing to give acupuncture a try, at a point in my life I would have tried anything if there was the glimmer of hope. I went to Dr. Kara Burkhart and it was the best thing I ever did and the best decision ever made, as 5 weeks later, I am pain free.

She is a blessing to me and I would highly recommend her for treatment. There are so many things that acupuncture can help and/or cure and has been used for thousands of years.

The program Pauline put me on was a gift. I have changed my habits and am paying more attention to what I feed my kids. I’m proud that I gave up some unhealthy habits for good. My skin has cleared up and I have so much more energy. Thanks!
