Affordable Cost: As a commitment to our nonprofit community healthcare model, we sell all our herbal medicines and supplements at 25% reduced cost to keep them affordable and accessible. Cost of individual products vary.
Where appropriate, both within the community acupuncture session and nutritional programs, herbal medicine and nutritional supplements will be suggested. Herbal and nutritional medicinals allow us to expand and deepen our scope to further benefit patients with acute and chronic health problems such as digestive issues, hormonal imbalance, respiratory issues, female health and fertility, low energy, sleep disorders, emotional health and so much more.
We have a variety of Chinese and western herbs and nutritional supplements in capsule, tablet, perles, wafer, liquid, powder and tincture forms, and topical applications. All herbs and supplements will be prescribed after a consultation regarding a patient’s current symptoms along with a history of drugs, herbs, supplements and pharmaceutical and over the counter medications and vitamins.
Chinese Herbal Medicine
Chinese herbalism contains some of the most effective herbal treatments practiced today. Thousands of years of practical experience and development, combined with modern research has made Chinese herbal medicine the most widely used form of herbalism throughout the world. Our practitioners at Lakewood Community Acupuncture are extensively trained and are nationally board certified herbalist.
Some nutritional advice will be given during acupuncture sessions, however, more thorough individualized nutritional evaluations can be booked separately from acupuncture sessions and offer nutritional guidance targeted toward individual health and wellness. Each nutritional plan will be individually created with the patient’s constitution in mind including suggestions for daily dietary changes and programs, as well as herbal and nutritional supplementation
Our primary nutritional programs
Our Approach to Nutrition
Utilizing our vast knowledge of the nutrition of history’s healthiest cultures, combined with emerging research on modern health concerns, we develop personalized nutritional protocols using high quality organic whole-food supplements and practical dietary guidance. No healing is able to take place without proper nutrition, and acupuncture and other modalities of healing are the most successful when combined with nutrition.
The human body is intelligently designed to live and thrive on nutritious whole foods and clean water. This nutritious lifestyle, together with exercise and a positive outlook on life, are what we need to live quality, healthy and energetic lives. However, the standard American diet (SAD) is loaded with processed foods that deplete the natural vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants found in whole-food. Therefore, supplementation with organic, whole-food vitamins, herbs and minerals are often necessary to achieve optimal health and bring each person to their full potential.
It is important when taking supplemental nutrition to only use organic, whole-food supplements, as synthetic vitamins are not actually the whole vitamin but isolated and incomplete fractions. Only whole-food supplements have the entire range of nutrients, including enzymes, minerals and co-factors, found in nature that allow for proper absorption and utilization by the body.
Crystal is a beautiful soul and her practice is a reflection of that. My acupuncture and cupping experience was relaxing rejuvenating and resetting. I had a bunch of specific questions about symptoms i was experiencing and Crystal tending with loving care and expertise to all of them. I highly recommend Lakewood Community acupuncture to anyone looking for high quality care at an affordable price.
My sister recommended this place to me and it did not disappoint. I saw Crystal and she was wonderful. It's a warm and sweet space to receive treatment in. I opted for the added Fire Cupping Therapy, which I had never experienced before and would highly recommend! Crystal helped me with an issue I was having and I left in much less pain than I arrived. Looking forward to working with both practitioners on a regular basis for overall maintenance and stress relief.
I love this place! I have had treatments with both Crystal and Jamie. Both have the right mix of empathy, knowledge, and skill that makes each session a new and effective experience. Both Jamie and Crystal are kind, friendly, sincere...and the community setting is great! A peaceful healing oasis for all. I brought my granddaughter a couple of times and we had sessions together, which was very sweet. The online scheduling is easy, and I have never had a problem getting a time that works for me. And it's very affordable, too...no big upfront fees like some other places charge.
