Jeff Fox – Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine

“My journey into acupuncture began after my wife suffered a debilitating injury. She developed a stressful thrombosis (blood clot) that went from the clavicle area to the mid-forearm and was life-threatening. The acupuncture doctor recognized the seriousness of the problem and convinced the PA that a combination of Western and Eastern medicine would be the answer. So with blood thinners to break down the clot and acupuncture to prevent nerve damage, she was cured and avoided permanent nerve damage. Since then she has also been able to stop using her steroidal inhaler prescribed for her allergies. I was a computer system administrator at the time and this was a life-changing experience for my wife and me. I rethought about what I wanted to do with my life and I went back to school to become an acupuncturist. I attended Southwest Acupuncture College, one of the top ten colleges in the United States, for my 4-year program in Oriental Medicine. I received my “Diplomate of Oriental Medicine” in 2009 and moved to NC three years ago. I have been involved in the acupuncture community in Wilmington since I arrived and am now the current local representative for the North Carolina Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. I employ both Chinese and Japanese techniques in treatments. I treat a wide variety of ailments, primarily chronic conditions, including allergies, auto-immune diseases, menopause, neuro-muscular pain, and insomnia. I may use a combination of acupuncture, herbs, Tui-Na (fascia and muscular manipulation) and nutritional counseling to facilitate a patient’s recovery.” – Jeff Fox
