you for visiting our website,
We are Lori Gilbert, Licensed Acupuncturist (California), and Brad
Gilbert, Marriage and Family Therapist Intern & EFT Practitioner.
Important Note: Lori is no longer in practice until further notice.
We bring to you the most
available, based in the ancient wisdom of Chinese Medicine and modern psychological approaches. We specialize in relief of pain, allergies, addictions, and
only use the most effective, non-invasive
therapies available. With compassion and a healing touch, we look
forward to serving you on your path to health, wellness, and life long
comes from balancing the energies of your body and mind by finding and
releasing the cause of the imbalance. This is
different than symptom relief, (like taking Tylenol for a headache or a
prescription of Codeine for chronic pain) which focuses on muting the
natural signals that are trying to tell you something is out of
balance, and you need to take action in locating the problem. Practices
that focus on symptom relief alone do not
root of the issues behind the observable symptoms, and sometimes mask
the symptoms making the underlying issues more complex and harder to
treat than before.
found emotional stress
and allergies are very
common causes for all kinds of issues from simple
headaches to eczema, chronic anxiety, digestive issues, addictions and
give you an analogy. You go to your mechanic
because there is a blinking light on the dashboard of your car
(represents your pain signal). The mechanic puts the key in the
ignition, notices where the flashing light is, opens up the dashboard
and pulls out the bulb that was flashing (represents a "pain reliever"
to temporarily mute the pain signal). He then gets a cup of coffee,
sits down for about 15 minutes or so (so it looks like he spent some
time on the job) and says the problem is fixed. Hmmm... not to good.
There must be some better way to work on the problem. Maybe he should find out what is
to that blinking light and repair the
real problem. Truth is most
car mechanics work to find the real problem; not all "mechanics" of
the human form do this.
We are here to find
the real cause behind your
imbalances in a way that does not cause side effects, other than peace,
happiness and health. Now, those are side effects you can live with!
