Acupuncture

Hello, I’m Dr. Crystal Stokes, LAc (Licensed Acupuncturist) and Herbalist.

I became a practitioner of Oriental Medicine, after I was in an accident and was unable to work or function do to pain in my neck and back. I worked in an ER at the time and a Dr. I worked with suggested I try Acupuncture. Not only was my pain relived by 30% the first treatment, by treatment 3, I was pain free, allowing me return back to work. When in treatment my Dr. asked me if there was anything else she could help me with, I said yes migraine headaches. I have been Migraine free for 10 years.

This experience changed my life and the direction I was head in. I was in school at the time planning on becoming a (Physician’s Assistant). I enrolled in East West College of Natural Medicine where I received my Bachelors of Professional Sciences, and Master of Science in Oriental Medicine.

I have been in the Medical field over 18 years .This allowing me to bridge the gap between Western and Eastern Medicine, and with my Western and Eastern Medicine back ground , I was chosen to work at Martin Health Systems as their Acupuncturist. This opportunity allowed me to work with a multitude of patients and conditions. I’m a general practitioner with specific interest in Neurology Acupuncture, Fertility, Pain relief, Facial Rejuvenation, and Emotional Release.

Acupuncture and Herbal Formulas are a safe, painless and effective way to treat many different conditions. As Your Acupuncture Physician I am dedicated to your health, comfort and concerns.
