Holistic Medicine

Dr. Steven Jacob

Holistic Medicine

Holistic Medicine recognizes that resolving a health issue requires optimizing whole-body alignment. A patient’s physical pain is sometimes driven by emotional or psychological issues. Some patients have psychological issues that are caused by physical problems. Holistic Medicine promotes health and wellness by addressing physical, psychological, and emotional issues in a peaceful, welcoming environment.

Dr Jacob’s skill set is unique in that he understands how changing one of these domains can have a powerful impact on others. Through his comprehensive intake and diagnostic process, he evaluates you and your history and uses time-tested modalities to optimize your health and support whole-body balance.

Alternative Medicine

Dr. Jacob treats patients using Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Bodywork, Manual Therapy, and other modalities with proven benefits. As they aren’t included in Western medical training, Western practitioners designate these successful healing traditions as Alternative Medicine. For centuries, other societies and cultures have considered many alternative therapies foundational to whole-body healing.

Eastern Medicine

Eastern Medicine incorporates practices that are based primarily on Chinese medical philosophies. Eastern medical treatments and traditions work together to help patients achieve balance and overall health. Dr. Jacob promotes whole-body healing by resolving physical, emotional and psychological issues. He uses ancient modalities and also guides patients toward lifestyle changes to help them achieve their health and wellness goals.

Chinese Medicine

Western medicine focuses on treating symptoms. Traditional Chinese Medicine treats the whole body. Following Chinese Medicine guidelines, Dr. Jacob evaluates patients using tongue and pulse diagnosis. They are the body’s most dynamic health indicators. He treats patients using Acupuncture, herbs and modalities that have been in use for thousands of years.

Acupuncture

Think of your body as a home where a blown circuit has darkened the lights in the kitchen. You correct the problem by adjusting the circuit box in the basement not by changing the light bulb. That’s how Acupuncture works. An Acupuncturist recognizes that a condition in one part of your body can cause pain in another. Our diagnostic model guides us to place surgical stainless steel Acupuncture needles where they optimize positive changes in the body. Learn more about our Acupuncture Services

Herbal Medicine

We blend traditional herbs, harmonizing the ingredients for the desired result. Our “recipes” combine herbs in the same way a baker mixes ingredients to make a cake. As with many traditional Chinese Medicine traditions, we rely on pulse and tongue diagnosis to determine which herbs will best benefit our patient.

Jin Shin Jyutsu

During a Jin Shin treatment, Dr. Jacob uses hands-on techniques to create a connection between two locations in the body. We treat patients based on needs determined during the diagnostic evaluation. The Jin Shin Jyutsu process balances the lungs, spleen, and other organ systems. The technique also supports structural alignment.

Manual Therapies

During Manual Therapy treatment, the practitioner feels and interacts with the body’s unique rhythm. This rhythm is different from the heart rate and much slower. When the body experiences a structural misalignment, a pain, or other symptoms, a cranial sacral treatment restores the rhythm and provides emotional and physical support.

Behavioral Processes

When people get stuck in a behavioral loop, they perceive events and circumstances in ways that affect their emotional, physical, and psychological health. They see fear, anger, and sadness as bad and automatically reject them. They embrace only those things they perceive as good. Behavioral processing helps metabolize both bad as well and good to promote overall wellness.

Meditation

Meditation is more than an activity for immediate relief. We encourage our clients to practice it throughout the day as a means to participate in their own health outcomes. Meditation enables focus and clarity and it reduces stress. It also eases pain and discomfort and provides physical and emotional support for the whole body.
