About Coastal Acupuncture
Erin considers Chinese Medicine a complementary medicine, not just an alternative. Different approaches to health can be effectively combined to maximize patients’ ability to protect their health and become their own advocate. She believes that each form of medicine has its own special strength and function, and her professional ambition is to bridge the gap between Eastern and Western traditions.
Coastal Acupuncture offers a comprehensive system of Traditional Chinese Medicine, providing most of the five pillars: acupuncture, Chinese herbs, medical nutrition, bodywork therapies and martial arts. By offering so many different therapies in one place we are able to maximize the patient experience and access to faster healing. Going a step further, Erin has also gotten advanced certifications, such as Acupuncture Point Injection Therapy and Facial Rejuvenation.
To expedite the time and effort required for a person to obtain a diagnosis or monitor a certain condition Erin has also set up accounts with local laboratories where standard lab values and tests can be ordered through Coastal Acupuncture and sent to any other doctor’s office, saving time in appointments and co-pays. Discount rates for uninsured or high-deductible plans have also been established.
