MEET JEFFREY ELKINS, M.A., L.AC.
My life experiences infuse my desire and ability to help others in their healing journey. I’ve suffered from chronic pain, migraines, chronic fatigue, and some other health issues. I can remember my first acupuncture treatment like it was yesterday. I was suffering from many of these health issues when I first went to see an acupuncturist in South Korea. As soon as the treatment began my migraine started to dissipate and by the end it was gone! Not only did I experience long-lasting pain relief from the treatments, I immediately resonated with the holistic and compassionate approach to healing.
I strive to impart my passion for wellness and knowledge of medicine to each and every patient, I work with. All of my sessions include a complete intake and diagnosis in order to provide the most effective treatments for patients as unique individuals and not just a group of symptoms. For all my treatment modalities, I provide one on one personalized treatments and provide amble treatment time for an effective treatment. I won't herd you through a multiple room/treatment clinic-like experience. I look forward to meeting you and helping with whatever journey you may be on.
