Why Acupuncture?

The fusion of East & West, tradition & science:

It shouldn’t be surprising that modern-day science has proven that acupuncture can have a positive effect on many conditions, given it’s been used by Eastern practitioners for approximately 3,000 years*. As acupuncture has become more commonly covered by insurance, more widely accepted, and recommended as part of a well-rounded approach to health and well-being, the number of individuals exploring it as a treatment option has grown. If you are relatively new to the world of Acupuncture, you have come to the right place. Dr. David Wachtel has a wonderful way of developing and explaining a personalized treatment plan for each patient, based on their unique challenges and goals.

"Restored Hope"

"Acupuncturist, certified specialist in sports medicine, Dr. Wachtel is a gifted, highly skilled practitioner who brings compassionate response and integrative treatment methods to his patients. His advanced knowledge of the human body and swift ability to identify and address root pathways of dysfunction made a remarkable difference in my recovery. After suffering months of invasive tests and extreme, near intractable pain, Dr. Wachtel quickly found and treated what others missed. It was the physical and emotional breakthrough I needed; a restoration of hope, and the relief of being seen. Go see him. You'll get better!"

"Better Every Time"

"Dr Wachtel’s acupuncture therapy helped me recover from a shoulder injury in a fraction of the recovery timeframe I was given. He delivers a superior service to other doctors I have seen. He provides a thorough assesment of your injury and explains how the affected area is moving vs how it should be moving. He explains exactly how he is going to treat you, and his acupuncture leaves you feeling better every time. I looked forward to my acupuncture appointments every week. Thank you for making my recovery an enjoyable experience Dr!"

- Lino

"Godsend for us Aging Athletes"

"Dr. Wachtel is a godsend for us aging athletes. He knows his acupuncture, but the added understanding gained from his sports medicine training and experience puts him over the top for me. I’ve had 8 sessions with him thus far and he has me back swimming and surfing, from barely being able to walk. I’ve had at least 6 different acupuncturists over the last 30yrs and David is at the top."
