"After three treatments I feel great. Before seeing you I went to our family doc and an orthopedists for my lower back spasms and elbow pain. Your exam was more thorough than the two of them put together. Thanks again." ~S. Willis, Emmett
Welcome To Alderman Medical Acupuncture In Boise, Idaho
Alderman Medical is Boise’s and the Treasure Valley’s intelligent choice for an Acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and integrated medical clinic. Our clinic is a medical specialty clinic providing compassionate individualized care in the diagnosis and treatment of
acute and chronic pain syndromes
and difficult conditions not responding to western medicine and/or when prescribed drugs and surgery are not the answer.
The majority of my new patients are referrals from
past or current patients
and/or progressive physicians providing complementary medicine in Boise and the Treasure Valley.
we have a saying, “It’s all about you.” “It’s all about you” is not just another slogan, it’s a philosophical metaphor that deals with the theoretical underpinnings of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) or Traditional Oriental Medicine (TOM), our caring and your innate energy systems that maintain the bodies balance (homeostasis). Energy (Qi), in Traditional Oriental Medicine, its fluidity, abundance, balance, and regulation is the foundation for curing disease and your body’s imbalances and not just treating the symptoms.
The art and science of Traditional Oriental Medicine is a comprehensive system of diagnosis and treatment. At Alderman Medical we utilize the combination of the Yin Yang Theory”, “Eight Principle” and “Five Element” principles in our diagnostic process. Acupuncture, Electrical Acupunture (EA), Herbal Medicinals, Cupping, Massage and Moxabustion are just a segment of treatment modalities and procedure in Traditional Oriental Medicine and when practiced by an experienced licensed acupuncturist, provides fast, effective results for a vast number of conditions/illnesses without harmful side effects.
As a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Licensed Acupuncturist, for almost thirty years, I’ve integrated the time proven art and science of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutrition, physical therapy modalities, massage, stress reduction techniques and facilitated the inclusion of a comprehensive western medical work up and when appropriate an orthopedic and neurological evaluation. This comprehensive integrated system of combining eastern and western medicine assures the appropriate and timely referral to specialized physicians when Traditional Oriental Medicine and Acupuncture is unlikely to be of benefit and when appropriate, assures fast effective results that you expect and deserve.
I’ve specialized now, for almost three decades, providing fast and effective care in treating the most of difficult conditions and illnesses. So if you have been told, “nothing more can be done” or “you’ll just have to live with it”, we at Alderman Medical Acupuncture just might be your final step in regaining your freedom and living a healthier pain free, care free life.
The following is a list of areas of specialization where experience makes the difference. Experience you can trust…
I strive to provide each patient with the full benefit of my extensive medical education in both Eastern and Western medicine and almost three decades treating the most difficult of cases successfully. You will always receive my undivided attention as I join in your desire to reach a vibrant, pain-free life of wellness in a caring and professional environment.
What my patients most often cite as my best attribute is my passion for helping others. This passion for helping others has been reflected in my career choices from the beginning—first saving lives and property as a fireman for the City of San Mateo, and now for almost three decades as a Doctor of Oriental Medicine and Licensed Acupuncturist.
I’m proud to say that this passion for caring, my abilities to listen, understand, communicate, and knowledge of when to integrate and refer to western medical doctors has earned me the distinction of being one of the most effective and referred-to Acupuncturists by Treasure Valley and Boise physicians, chiropractors and physical therapists.
