Ashi is known as the point of most tenderness in Traditional Chinese Medicine.  It refers to a point or points of sensitivity or discomfort, which are determined by manual examination.  Acupuncture is a system of healing that penetrates beyond the surface and works with your body's energy to re-create balance within you.  

While specialized dentists have much expertise in the subject of TMJ diagnosis and treatment; there is much more to the story.  I will enlighten you to such in this article.  
Anatomically, the TMJ is intimately related to the neck.  This means that neck problems can affect the TMJ, and vice versa.



This amazing therapeutic taping method, which my patients have appreciated for years, has revolutionized the sports medicine world.  If you watched the Summer Olympics, you couldn't miss the colorful tape on many of the athletes.

Worldwide, cold laser has been reported to successfully treat an incredible number of conditions. Research scientists say it’s because it works at the cellular level.

Dr. Michael Kale was considered one of the greatest chiropractors to ever lived.   The Upper Cervical Chiropractic technique was the method used in the B.J.

Most people don't feel anything at all with this micro-current electrical stimulation, which is used in conjunction with, or instead of acupuncture needles.   It has been feature on WAVY-TV 10 news story for treatment for people with chronic dry mouth, however it has been a huge factor in pain relief.
