Helene Sorkin's bio

This content was provided by Helene Sorkin "I came to this medicine because I was successfully treated by acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine over the course of a year for a severely debilitating illness. When I was well I decided to go to graduate school so I could be of benefit to others with these amazing healing modalities I had experienced so clearly myself."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Helene Sorkin "Asian/Oriental Medicine is literally a body-brain medicine. fMRIs have shown that the activation of acupuncture points generate brain activity in the parts of the brain that the 2-3,000 year old literature teaches it would in the relevant parts of the body.  See the fascinating book The Spark in the Machine: How the Science of Acupuncture Explains the Mysteries of Western Medicine by Dr. Daniel Keown.

Gentle, attentive (and sometimes fun) care helps with stress/anxiety and many of the ailments that keep us from a happier and more fulfilling life."
