I started seeing Dr. Hill about 7 months ago. My husband has been seeing her for much longer than that. I am not fond of needles, so I was skeptical, but Dr. Hill calls them pins. The acupuncture, and herbs I've been taking, have helped me tremendously with allergies and hormonal issues. Dr. Hill is thorough; she takes a complete medical history before moving forward. She listens, asks questions, and decides on a treatment plan with input from the patient. I highly recommend Dr. Hill!

I was suffering with severe pain do to sciatica, and Dr. Hill with her expertise and caring gentleness helped not only easy my fear of being in pain forever, but she helped my body do what it needed to in order to start healing. I am forever thankful for this amazing woman and i would recommend her to anyone who is sick and tired of being sick and in pain.

by Thomas White on Acupuncture and Dry Needling

Dr. Hill does an excellent job assessing and is pin point accurate with this approach. She is wonderful to talk to and has a wonderful sense of humor and bed side manner. Couldn't ask for a better Physician and service that she delivers. highly recommended!

I came to see Dr. Hill desperate after having tried EVERYTHING for my severe hot flashes. My doctor has tried many different procedures (including hormone pellets implanted into my buttocks) and injections, to no avail. I started seeing Dr. Hill and after the 4th treatment and taking herbal medicine she gave me, I finally started to cool off. I continue to see her and make great progress. FINALLY! I highly recommend her, especially for those suffering like me with a hormone nightmare.

Dr. Hill is amazing!! She truly listens to all your concerns. She is very caring, knowledgeable, and sincere. I would recommend her to anyone that wants to start feeling great!! Acupuncture is life changing for so many reasons. For me it has helped with back pain, increased energy and has decreased my anxiety!! Go see Dr Hill!

Acupuncture by Erin Hill, TCMD, L.Ac and her expertise in traditional Chinese medicine has helped me tremendously with pain relief and with several other health issues.  I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Erin Hill.Bilateral pain in my trapezius and neck became unbearable when reaching a ‘9’ level.  Three of my doctors could do no more to help me.  My excellent pain specialist of four years had successfully performed RFA on my nerves in my spinal column but could not get the trapezius/neck area to respond.  Over the past eight years, I have had several occipital nerve blocks and these no longer helped relieve pain.  I am so pleased to begin getting relief after having suffered with so much pain for years, including fibromyalgia as well as valley fever, which I have had almost four years.On 9-13-16 I began acupuncture with Dr. Erin Hill.  Within twelve (12) weeks, the pain level in my trapezius and neck has been reduced to ‘0 to 2 and maybe up to 3’.  This made it possible for me to undergo other critical medical treatment without suffering a high level of pain at the same time.  I am very allergic to approx. 30 antibiotics and pain meds and cannot tolerate general anesthesia.  I strongly recommend Dr. Erin Hill for pain relief and also improvement in other health issues.

When I first started to see Dr. Hill, I had been seeing a chiropractor for over 2 decades, but my pain levels were consistently at level 7 (on a 10 scale). Now, my pain levels are at a Level 2, I am no longer taking prescription pain meds and I am able to work out 2 to 3 times per week. She also helped me to lose 25 pounds over a 4 month period. I am truly greatful. Dr. Hill is a true healer. She is caring, compassionate, knowledgeable, and in my opinion, just brilliant. Thank you Dr. Hill.

I started seeing Dr. Hill last year 2015. I have heard about acupuncture and wondered what it was all about. I was having shoulder and neck pain so started treatment with her. She is so approachable, easy to talk to and very pleasant. On the first visit, she makes sure she knows your medical history so she can ensure she is able to help with so many differing arenas with your body and mind that I never thought acupuncture could help. I am going through menopause; the treatment helped with night sweats as well as with energy levels. I pretty much did not even realize when she was placing the needles on my body as she creates such a relaxing environment. This may sound strange; however, she makes me feel like I am her only patient as she is so personable, understanding as well as a WAY AWESOME person whom actually listens. Go see her; you will not be disappointed. Thanks Dr. Hill for everything you do!!!

Dr. Hill is amazing!! She truly listens to all your concerns. She is very caring, knowledgeable, and sincere. I would recommend her to anyone that wants to start feeling great!!

How does Acupuncture work? 

Promotes Blood Circulation.  Blood contains oxygen, nutrients absorbed from food, immune substances, hormones, analgesics, and anti-inflammatories.  If there is only 3% reduced blood flow to breast tissue, this is enough to cause cancer to develop. Nearly all chronic diseases begin with inflammation.

Stimulates the Body’s Built-in Healing Mechanisms.  Acupuncture creates “micro-traumas” which stimulates the body to heal the surrounding areas through the activation of the nervous, immune, and endocrine systems.

Releases Natural Painkillers.  A signal is sent to the brain through the nervous system to release endorphins, norepinephrine, and enkephalins.  These substances can be 10-200 times more potent than morphine!

Reduces Both the Intensity and Perception of Chronic Pain.  This is done through an involved process called “descending control normalization.”

Relaxes Shortened Muscles.  Repetitive stress injuries can cause muscles to become chronically shortened, which can pull on other areas of our body causing a structural imbalance and stress on joints.       

Reduces Stress Response.  The “pins” stimulate the release of Oxycontin which regulates the parasympathetic nervous system (“rest and digest” or “calm and connect”).  Stress increases cortisol levels which reduce protein synthesis and tissue regeneration and leads to weight gain, particularly in the abdomen.  Recent research has implicated impaired parasympathetic function in a wide range of autoimmune diseases, including arthritis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease.

What is Trigger Point Dry Needling?

Dry needling involves using acupuncture needles to target localized areas of muscular tension. These areas of muscle tension are commonly experienced as “muscle knots”, but in dry needling, they are called “trigger points.” The stimulation can cause the brain to release the muscle if it’s too tight or strengthens it if it’s too lax. Treatment is focused on relaxing muscular trigger points to restore muscles to a fully lengthened and pain-free state.

What is Qi?

When someone says they have low energy, we can have an idea what that means, but when it comes to the term “Qi”, the term “energy” suddenly seems strange.  The clearest explanation was given by an Emergency Pediatrician from England who furthered his educating as a Doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

“Collagen produces electricity, and electricity guides bone growth.  Collagen in fascia (thin membrane covering everything in the body) is laid down along lines of mechanical stress – every time it is stretched or moved it will generate tiny electrical charges.  It is quite astonishing that the connective fabric of our body (fascia), the tissue that wraps and joins our entire body, is in effect an interconnected, living electrical web.  This is so similar to the ancient Chinese descriptions of Acupuncture channels and Qi that it is remarkable.”  (from The Spark in the Machine by Dr. Daniel Keown)

 

The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.”                    
– Thomas Edison
