Old Mountain Health Center Shifts with the Tides

As with all things in life, change is the only certainty.

OMHC is changing things up a bit. There are several changes, but all take effect October 1st.

First, Group Acupuncture [Community Style]  is going away. I have held on to it as a low cost option for treatments as long as was viable but it is simply not a popular option and thus will no longer be available. If you were a group patient at OMHC and the cost of private acupuncture treatments is more than you can afford please feel free to contact me. I am “grandfathering” all group patients, so you will be able to get a modified private treatment at group rates [this treatment will only include acupuncture, no herbs/moxa/gua sha/cupping/tui na].

Second, the clinic schedule is changing. The clinic days/hours will be changing. Starting October 1st, the clinic will be open Tuesdays – Fridays. Clinic hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays will be 8 am – 5 pm. On Wednesdays and Fridays clinic hours will be 8 am – 8 pm. Hopefully, the evening hours will allow patients who work 9 –  5  jobs to still get in for their appointments.

Third, class schedules will also be changing. All classes will be on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Same times: Qi Gong 5 – 5:30 pm, Tai Chi 5:30 – reat6:30 pm, and Long Fist Kung Fu 6:30- 7:30 pm.  Tai Chi for Health class will be unaffected by these changes. If you are unable to attend classes on these days feel free to contact me about setting up some Private Lessons. Hopefully, these days will allow for better attendance and fit folks’ schedules more easily.

These changes have been made with the patients/students in mind, though it is impossible to please everyone, so if you have any questions or comments about any of the above changes please feel free to contact me to discuss available options.

Thanks for helping to keep my dream alive here at OMHC! Without you, the patients and students, OMHC would not exist.

Comments Off on Knee Pain Month at OMHC

Knee Pain Month at OMHC

April is apparently going to be Knee Pain month here at OMHC. I have seen over a dozen new patients just in the last two weeks that are suffering from knee pain here in haywood county. I have been treating several patients with knee replacements that now have swelling, pain, numbness, and discomfort at my clinic here in Waynesville, NC. Knee pain is something that I know intimately as it is the cause of my interest in Chinese medicine. Acupuncture and Moxibustion are what has allowed me to be active and not suffer from severe knee pain. Over the last ten years I have regularly used acupuncture to control/eliminate my knee pain caused from a sports injury. I have seen a ton of patients get relief from their pain with the use of acupuncture and moxibustion as well as Chinese herbal medicine.

If you know anyone suffering from knee pain please let them know that Acupuncture can provide relief for most people, regardless of the cause, ie arthritis, trauma, partial ligament tears, meniscal damage, even pain after knee replacements.
