In the past, there was traditional medicine, and then there was holistic wellness, with no overlap between the two. Dr. Kathleen Kroessler is that rare blend, combining both to give patients their best chances of recovery. She’s a practicing neurologist who integrates acupuncture and other alternative therapies to treat her patients. “The ideas of health and wellness used in Eastern medicine naturally complement the Western approaches to treating the whole patient,” she says. “Acupuncture and therapies can be very effective for treating pain and the stress associated with chronic pain.”

Dr. Kroessler started exploring alternative therapies as an option for helping patients who could not tolerate conventional medications or had incomplete relief of symptoms. Through her blend of holistic practices and medical science, Dr. Kroessler treats conditions like neuralgia, migraine headaches, whiplash injuries, and post-concussive headaches. She also finds acupuncture successful for the treatment of acute and chronic pain in the neck, back, shoulders, and the extremities. “It is quite gratifying to help patients with pain, integrating the Eastern and Western approaches.” she says. “I had no idea when I first took the acupuncture training course that it would be such a powerful tool. Our bodies have an amazing capacity to heal when the energy of chronic strain/pain patterns are released.”
