Since 1999, Michael Norris has been specializing in acupuncture
at Deep River Wellness Center
. All new patients begin with a thorough examination by the practitioner. Michael will review your medical history, discuss your current symptoms and look for additional signs to determine possible causes. The evaluation may include examining local areas of pain, the color of your tongue, facial complexion and your pulse. By following the practitioner’s recommendations and receiving treatment, patients have found relief from osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, migraines, nausea, vomiting and menstrual cramps, as well as back and neck pain.
Acupuncture focuses on helping patients heal naturally by targeting nodes and pathways throughout the body. Hair-thin needles are strategically placed to enhance your "qi" (life force). Once in place, you’ll relax (and potentially drift off to sleep) while we play soothing music in the background. We’ll do everything in our power to maintain your privacy, giving you your own space with the necessary towels and/or sheets for your comfort. After your session, you may feel relaxed or energized. The number of treatments we recommend will depend on the condition you’re experiencing. Additionally, your acupuncturist can put together a customized diet plan and integrate herbal medicine
for best results. Ultimately, our goal is to help your organs, nerves and blood vessels function as they should by restoring your body’s homeostasis.
