With a focus on your good health and achieving balance in your body and your life, we draw on the extraordinarily deep clinical history of Traditional Chinese Medicine to treat a wide variety of conditions. And, it’s not just about needles, either. We use multiple modalities independently and in combination to encourage your body to heal itself.

A Different Experience

Not a spa. Not new age. Just a straightforward, science-based approach to Traditional Chinese Medicine and a true healing center. Heather began her career as a biochemist and has a deep understanding of health and nutrition from all angles.

What we can treat.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can treat an almost endless list of ailments and complaints. From pain & pain syndrome to allergies; autoimmune issues to fertility; athletic injuries to stress and anxiety, acupuncture has a long history of effective treatment for patients around the world.

Specialties? Absolutely!

While we treat all sorts of medical complaints, we have specialized expertise with pain, auto-immune disorders and women’s health. Dr. Heather has an extremely successful record with fertility patients and a long history working very closely with some of the finest fertility specialists in the nation.

Needles? No reason to fear.

The fact is, acupuncture needles probably shouldn’t be called needles at all. They are as thin as a cat’s whisker. And we utilize an extremely gentle Japanese technique. We offer needle-less options, too, so there’s no reason you shouldn’t give it a try for yourself.


Children can benefit from Traditional Chinese Medicine, too. For younger children, we utilize a needle-less technique called Shoni Shin that uses a selection of specialized tools to stimulate acupuncture points rather than the needles we use for older children and adults.

Wholistic, Holistic Healing

At Lavender Moon Acupuncture, we treat the whole body of the whole person with an approach that encompasses the totality of our understanding of health and healing. It’s not just acupuncture we focus on. We address the complete patient.

A Long Tradition of Healing

With such a long tradition – acupuncture has a history that goes back more than 2500 years – and with such a different approach to health than western medicine, it’s natural to have questions about how Traditional Chinese Medicine works.

  • Will it work for me?
  • What does it feel like?
  • How long does a treatment take?

A former Biochemist & EMS professional, Dr. Heather is particularly qualified in the field to talk to both the art & science of this unique medicine that bridges Eastern and Western traditions. It is our mission to make you feel comfortable about your treatment in every way. Give us a call with any of your questions.
