Medical Acupuncture


Eric Overton, MD is professionally trained and certified in medical acupuncture.

Medical Acupuncture involves a comprehensive therapeutic system to restore imbalances of energy in the body. The potential benefits of acupuncture are extensive and include a wide variety of conditions. Acupuncture can treat several disorders including anxiety, depression, and pain. Acupuncture is often used to increase overall function, increase energy levels and promotes health and vitality. 

Acupuncture is more than simply needling. It is one component of a larger therapeutic system that includes lifestyle and dietary modifications as well as addressing emotional, cognitive and physical functions. A thorough understanding of each patients bio-psycho-emotional composition is essential for an optimal response to acupuncture treatment. This is consistent with Dr. Overton's overall approach to medicine, health, and well-being. 

Dr. Overton spends extra time with each patient to develop a comprehensive acupuncture treatment rather than treating multiple patients simultaneously. This is consistent with his philosophy that wellness and homeostasis is best achieved through process, a true patient-physician interaction, and careful consideration of each patient's unique constitutional make-up. 

Initial consultations are scheduled in one-hour blocks to ensure adequate time to build a solid patient-physician foundation and relationship.
