Chinese medicine offers a fresh perspective and effective treatment options for many conditions that are difficult to treat with conventional Western medicine. Our treatment methods are safe, minimally invasive, and have virtually no side effects.

Acupuncture is often the first thing that comes to mind when people think about Chinese medicine, but it is so much more! Chinese medicine is a complete system of medicine whose foundational theory dates back to more than 2,000 years ago. The foundational texts provide a template for looking at the body in a holistic way. We utilize diagnostic techniques that are unique to Chinese medicine, and take into account the physical, mental, and emotional well being of the patient. We draw from a wide variety of tools to create the most effective treatment for each person.

Acupuncture involves the insertion of very fine, sterile, filiform needles into specific points on the body, chosen for their specific benefits.The practice of acupuncture involves theories regarding the human body, the way the body interacts with its environment, and the recognition that the mind, body, and spirit are intricately connected. It acknowledges the existence of the meridians, and the vital energy that flows within, and between them.

In Chinese medicine moxabustion and acupuncture are often considered two parts of the same treatment. Moxabustion can also be done as a stand alone treatment, and is a good option for needle sensitive, or needle averse patients. It involves applying a layer of protective salve on specific acupuncture points on the body, and then placing a small amount of the herb artemisia argyi, on the point.

Chinese herbal medicine has been used for thousands of years to deal with our physiology gone awry. Western medicine tends to use pharmaceuticals to shut down the symptoms of pathology, by simply turning off whatever unpleasant signal the body is creating. We practice classical Chinese herbalism which is rooted in the belief that true healing comes not from the alleviation of symptoms, but by addressing the root cause in the physiology that caused the symptoms to arise in the first place!

Sarah has been the kindest and most caring soul I have ever met. I have been through many doctors with a complicated health situation.

The first visit I had she took me in and cared for me as if I were a family member. She is very gentle and listens very meticulously. I wouldn’t go to anyone else after seeing her. Over the past few months I’ve started to see improvement. She has been an incredible encouragement. I recommend her to anyone looking for a skilled and caring accupuncturist.

I spent 10 years on birth control pills; hormone production did not come back when I discontinued using them. I took bio-identical hormones for a few years, but ovulation didn’t occur. Had my period in 36 days using only your herbal support. After less than 90 days (3 cycles) taking the herbs you provided, I conceived. I recommend this method to anyone.

Tim Nelson, L.Ac. has been a godsend to me. As a cancer survivor and joint replacement recipient, I rely on regular visits for ongoing care and maintenance. He takes time to listen carefully to my words and their underlying currents and meanings. And I appreciate his ability and skill in both being able to offer a variety of treatments, and to explain how what he is doing is bringing balance to my body. Some of his treatments include acupuncture, cupping, Chinese herbs and salves, heat, massage, and meditation. I must say that I have never been in better health than these past few years of being under his care.

I have been seeing Tim off and on for the last year or so for various treatments. Every Spring and Summer I am pretty debilitated by my allergies. This season, with Tim’s help I didn’t have any major issues and was able to minimize the amount of medications that I would typically have to take. Additionally, Tim has helped me get back to work from a very painful neck injury. He does a great job of listening and asking pointed questions to get to the root of issues.

Tim takes time to talk to you about your concerns and expectations, and does a great job treating you holistically rather than just chasing symptoms.

Tim Nelson is warm, intuitive and an incredibly good listener. That he is then able to parlay that into effective treatment makes his perspective on healing in actuality a blueprint for living. Lucky me!

I have some complex physical issues. The team at Ancient Fern have helped me skillfully navigate my path to health. They are extremely knowledgeable in acupuncture and natual medicine. They have supported me with my chronic knee pain, back issues and general health challenges. I wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone.
