Acupuncture therapy is the use of very fine needles inserted at specific body points to help stop pain, harmonize energy flow, increase metabolism and the potential for healing. Acupuncture is used for many conditions including: allergies, asthma, headaches, body aches, joint pain, hormonal imbalances, digestive symptoms, auto-immune disorders, etc.
Acupuncture sessions are typically 45 to 60 minute sessions. A typical course of treatment is between one session and ten sessions depending on how chronic the ailment is. To schedule an appointment with Dr. Gayl Hubatch, OMD (NM) please contact her office at (512) 266-2059.

Herbs aid recovery from colds, flu and injuries. They also have been proven to enhance the digestive process while maintaining body rhythms and functions. Prescriptions are patent medicines and teas. In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), herbal therapies are generally formula based and single herbs are rarely used. TCM holds that every medicinal substance has its strengths and its shortcomings, and each ingredient in the formula should be carefully balanced in quality and quantity, in order to accentuate its efficacy while reducing side effects.
