Recently, the acupuncture profession has found itself defending against PT’s and Chiropractors who practice something called Dry Needling: that is, inserting acupuncture needles into points in the body. Our profession as a whole is strongly against this practice. PT’s receive a mere 200-300 hours training, compared to the 4000 hours that an acupuncturist receives. State after state, across the country has fought against this practice. Recently, Kristin Horner Warren, an acupuncturist in Colorado investigated and then wrote about this egregious practice. Please read it and learn why you should only allow a nationally certified and licensed acupuncturist to insert acupuncture needles into your body.
Cara Frank is an outstanding practitioner. She treated me for fertility issues and there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that I would not have my child were it not for her expertise and dedication.
She arranged for a practitioner from another group to meet me in the suburbs, so that I could get acupuncture immediately before and after my embryo transfer, since it was scheduled when she was seeing patients in the city. When our embryo wasn’t growing well, my fertility doc said the pregnancy was “unlikely to be successful”, and there was nothing else that Western Medicine had to offer, Cara’s acupuncture and herbs literally saved his life. I know it sounds crazy but, as a physician and fertility patient, I was far too familiar with how these situations usually end up.
Along the way, she has also treated my migraines, diagnosed my hypothyroidism, and kept my blood pressure in a safe range. Her emphasis on the important connection of diet and healthy, as well as her knowledge of food, are exceptional and significantly contribute to the unique and unparalleled experience of being in her care.
