Acupuncture

A treatment to realign your mind, body, and spirit by unblocking stagnant areas in your body using extremely thin needles

One of the areas I specialize in is aesthetic acupuncture for facial rejuvenation.

Aesthetic Acupuncture

Aesthetic acupuncture for facial rejuvenation used to be only reserved for the queens in ancient China.   I have two major certifications in facial rejuvenation acupuncture having treated many patients in collaboration with a dermatologist and plastic surgeon.  Acupuncture stimulates collagen production  resulting in softening deep wrinkles,  fading away superficial wrinkles, lightening dark spots, getting rid of under-eye bags, and create a natural glow on the face.  Most people will immediately be able to observe the amazing effect of acupuncture on their faces immediately after a session.  In most cases, it will take 3 to 4 sessions of acupuncture to observe the difference in signs and symptoms, but the natural glow and other positive changes of the face are undeniably and observed subjectively immediately after acupuncture session is over.

 

Women’s Health

My doctoral specialty includes the area of women’s health.  I treat a variety of women’s health issues extremely successfully, such as PMS, and any other menstrual issues including  premature cessation and irregular menses, menopausal disorders, such as hot flashes, insomnia, weight gain, and anxiety.

Acupuncture and herbs are effective alternatives to hormone replacement therapy providing  natural relief without the side effects of chemical hormones.

Chinese medicine can effectively treat various fertility issues, even helping IVF procedures to have successful outcomes.

 

Pain

Dr. Bina has treated all kinds of pain very successfully while working at Kaiser Permanente for the past 15 years.  Her treatments effectively treat even those people who have had acupuncture in the past without obtaining any relief. What sets her apart is the fact that she treats you not only for the pain, but also addresses the underlying constitutional issues which cause the pain. Some of the painful conditions she treats are musculoskeletal pains such as low back, neck, shoulder pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, acute injuries due to falls, playing sports, abdominal pain due to IBS, and colitis, and other digestive ailments, tension headaches, migraines, and any other painful condition.

 

Integrative Medicine

Western Medicine
Integrative medicine is an approach to care that puts the patient at the center and addresses the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual and environmental influences that affect a person’s health. Employing a personalized strategy that considers the patient’s unique conditions, needs and circumstances, it uses the most appropriate interventions from an array of scientific disciplines to heal illness and disease and help people regain and maintain optimum health.

Herbal Medicine

What are Different Ways to Take the Herbs?
You can get natural herbal remedies in tablet, powdered, or tinctured form carefully selected and customized to your specific needs.
My Background and Training about Herbs:
I am a board certified herbalist; not only studying the herbs through many years of formal education in school, but also by apprenticeship with master herbalists, such as Dr. Huang who was the chief of Chinese medicine herbal department in China for about 40 years. I obtained hands-on practical training as how to combine different herbs to address each patient's specific needs.
How Are the Herbs Prescribed?
The herbal prescriptions I prepare are specific to your unique symptoms and signs. There are many over-the-counter herbs and supplements which claim to treat many diseases but they are general remedies which address general symptoms, but may not necessarily give you the desired outcome. Furthermore the possibility of side effects will increase if one supplement is taken for a long time as it accumulates in the body and may interact with other prescription or non-prescription drugs/supplements you are taking. I carefully go over all your medications and supplements, and make sure there are no interactions between them.
