Our Integrative Approach…

At Bennett Acupuncture and Functional Medicine, we know your body is an ever-changing system, so we have designed a vital patient-centered approach to treat your needs as an individual.

Most physicians of Western medicine practice acute care—a short interval of treatment to alleviate immediate symptoms of an illness with condition-specific remedies like surgery or drugs. Here at Bennett Acupuncture, we believe in addressing the whole patient, not just an isolated set of symptoms.

While we specialize in acupuncture, we are one of just a handful of clinics in the country that offers everything in-house that vitality requires. If you are looking for acupuncture, herbal medicine, functional medicine, Oriental medicine, nutrition or weight loss, we have a doctor for you.

Our combination of acupuncture and functional medicine to treat chronic conditions further sets us apart from the competition. This is a unique approach to better health rarely found elsewhere. Functional medicine—a revolutionary form of assessing your health with an integrative approach—uses advanced laboratory testing, nutrition and lifestyle as factors in determining your treatment.

Here at Bennett Acupuncture, we practice functional medicine to complement herbal medicine and acupuncture in what we call the Bennett Method. This method is a powerful combination to speeding up the healing process and maintaining better health.
