Acupuncture in Chandler AZ

Looking for acupuncture in Chandler AZ?  Whether you are suffering from physical pain, mental/emotional stress, or chronic disease, acupuncture can improve the overall function of the body.  Acupuncture is the treatment of conditions by using needles to improve the flow of energy through the body. The needles are sterile and are only used once.  The needles have a very small diameter and if people do feel them, they only feel the initial poke and don't have any pain during the rest of the treatment.

Acupuncture does the following for the body:

  • Improves the flow of energy through the meridians of the body
  • Relaxes muscles in the case of trigger points, and improves blood flow
  • Increases parasympathetic tone, allowing the body to rest, digest, and heal.
  • Allows for the subconscious processing of mental/emotional stressors.

Acupuncture can be used to treat:

  • low back pain
  • headaches and migraines
  • high blood pressure
  • anxiety and depression
  • PTSD
  • osteoarthritis
  • allergies and autoimmune disease
  • acid reflux and digestive disorders
  • insomnia and other sleep issues

Acupuncture in Chandler AZ

With 12 main acupuncture meridians flowing through the fascia of the body, there are a lot of places where this flow can get hung up.  Systemically, these hangups can cause stagnation prior to the hangup and cause excess symptoms, like our red faced and easily angered hypertension patient.  In the opposite scenario, the disruption of flow to a specific meridian can cause deficiency symptoms, like our achy and dizzy hypertension patient. These hangups can be caused by spinal fixations, or extremity bones being out of place, disruption of the fascia by an injury or scar, piercings, trigger points, and broken bones.  So by using physical medicine techniques and restoring normal structural function, we can affect the acupuncture system.  Also, emotional stressors can affect the acupuncture meridians so using neuro-emotional technique, we can disconnect the emotional trigger from its effect on the acupuncture system.

Diagnosis in Acupuncture

Diagnosis relies on the appearance, temperament, and eating and sleeping patterns of the patient, as well as the physical exam and history. Consider the patient who comes in with a high blood pressure reading, irritability, red eyes and face, constipation, a bitter taste in their mouth, and is quick to anger.

In western medicine, the diagnosis would be hypertension after three separate hight blood pressure readings, and anti-hypertensive medications would be the treatment.  In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the diagnosis of liver fire rising.  With an understanding of how this pattern emerges in TCM, we can educate the patient about dietary changes or supplements to take stress off of the liver, dealing with anger issues via Neuro-Emotional Technique, and use acupuncture needles and herbal formulas to bring balance to the excess condition.

Another patient comes in with a high blood pressure reading, dizziness, ringing in the ears, low back achiness, night sweats, and a dry throat.  This patient would still receive the antihypertensive medication in allopathic medicine. In TCM, they would receive treatment with the goal of building fluids and their proper movement throughout the body.

So you can see, using Traditional Chinese Medical Diagnosis fits very well with Naturopathic Medicine because it gives us another, deeper perspective of the disease process.

What Our Patients Are Saying...

True Resilience

Dr Evan was instrumental in helping my body find balance again! His ability to assess nerve conduction and improve has allowed me to walk with normal rhythm again and to reduce pain in my post op knee. I highly recommend him!
Dr Evan is super friendly and kind! He is a great doctor because he makes you feel comfortable, listens to all your concerns and takes the time to give an amazing treatment. He worked on my cranial nerves related to my salivary glands and eye movement. Before seeing him I never had any idea these systems were messed up. But I began to notice that my vitamins would dissolve faster in my mouth and my reading became more fluid! I will continue to go see him as he is really accommodating for students.

I had a great experience with Dr. Evan. His perspective and treatments were refreshing, particularly in contrast to a more allopathic approach. He was able to tap into (and clear) some underlying issues of mine on a physical, mental AND emotional level, which was really powerful for me. He has an easy and gentle way of connecting with you as a patient, which I really appreciate in a provider. I also work in the medical field and have been referring patients and friends to him. If you're looking for a holistic approach to working with your physical and emotional health, go see him!

Dr. Evan is one of the best naturopaths in the entire state! I am a local chiropractor and I have been treated by him many times. I also have referred many of my patients to him with great results! His extensive knowledge of natural treatments and calm caring demeanor are a powerful combination for healing. He practices Applied Kinesiology which can be used to tailor each and every treatment to the patients needs. Through this method of "muscle testing," he can figure out exactly which nutrients are needed. He knows a ton of different ways to treat patients and then he uses the muscle testing to be sure he chooses the most effective method every time! He also does Neuro Emotional Technique, which is an amazing way to quickly and effectively lower your stress levels. Stress is very detrimental to your health and the NET technique is a scientifically validated technique that can help you feel much better in just a few minutes! If you are looking for the best naturopathic care available at reasonable rates, go to Dr. Evan!!!

In my search for a new naturopath, I was referred to True Resilience because I have multiple ailments, diseases and concerns which had been addressed by common treatments such as chiropractic, supplements, acupuncture, and many laboratory tests. Dr Evan uses on-site autonomic response testing via applied kinesiology for an immediate evaluation of what procedure will work best for you. The Neural Therapy was instrumental in restoring more feeling to one side of my body. His homeopathic recommendation is assisting in ridding my body of a long-held poison. I highly recommend Dr Evan and True Resilience. The rates are reasonable and he is a physician who listens to the patient !

I stumbled upon Dr. Evan through the web looking for an alternative approach to my previous years and bout with horrible allergies and Asthma. Throughout the 3 years of treating my symptoms with western Medecine and steroidal prescriptions i found myself on a vicious treadmill and getting no relief. I made my “free” consultation that very day and thought...” what do I have to loose”! By the end of my consultation I felt I had hope that Dr. Evan could truly help me not just mask my physical problems but rid my body of them. Amazingly enough after A few treatments and supplements I already saw great improvement. I truly feel better than I have in 3 years. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking treatment relief for any and all ailments physically and or structurally. Dr. Evan is a very kind ,gentle and extremely knowledgeable Holistic Physician I am so thankful that I found him. Thank you Dr. Evan for all your expertise and for helping me to get my healthy life back on track.

Dr. Evan van Driel has greatly improved the quality of my life in a number of ways. My initial focus was to see if he could improve my severe Bipolar Type II depressions, which were crippling my life. He helped me reset my Circadian Rhythm, which was definitely a factor in the depressions, and started me on several supplements, which were helpful. He has frequently and successfully used Neuro Emotional Technique (NET) to clear physical and emotional issues, a number of which I believe were related to the overall depression cycle. I have not had a depression since I began working with him. I highly and unconditionally recommend him. He is a gentle, kind, thoughtful, and very professional practitioner who is exceptional in his sensitivity to the patient and in his ability to zero in on and clear significant issues.

After multiple doctor visits, blood work and a CAT scan, my normal doctor was unable to help. With just talking to Dr Evan, he was able to identify my issue and suggest actions to correct it. Within days I was feeling better.
