Treating the Whole Person, Not Just the Symptoms


Acupuncture goes beyond many conventional medical treatments by working to heal the entire person (not just their symptoms) on a physical, mental and emotional level. It can be used to treat many problems, including:


Backaches and headaches, including migraines · Irregular periods · Sinusitis · Menopause · Skin conditions (excema, psoriasis) · M.E. (chronic fatigue syndrome) · Digestive disorders (irritable bowel syndrome) · Muscular and joint pain · Asthma and stress · Impotency and prostate problems · Anxiety, depression, addictions, phobias · Eating disorders, lack of confidence and low self esteem · Reproductive wellness · IVF support · Irregular menstrual cycle · Infertility · Jetlag


 Pailin’s Philosophy


“Healing is an organic and holistic process. Illness is never separate from the person it is affecting.”


“Every patient must be treated within the context of his or her own environment and history.”


“My emphasis is on developing a treatment plan for each of my individual patients – not their symptoms.”


“Life is too precious a gift not to enjoy every day in good health.”
