What Makes Acupuncture with Inger Different?

Inger’s Vision is to provide educational health care of the highest quality, so patients are empowered to go on to live lives of health and wellness on their own. She is a passionate teacher, believing that when patients understand the connections between their imbalances and how those play out in their bodies, they can start making new choices that assist in the healing process.   Patients continuously report that treatment with Inger is unlike any healthcare they’ve received elsewhere—that for the first time, they understand a completely new way of looking at their condition and health that helps them resolve and prevent illness. The key difference is the time Inger takes with each patient, explaining in detail how their unique life and health picture came together to form their current state of health or dis-ease.   This makes each treatment not just something that happens ‘to’ patients, but a partnering in health that happens ‘with’ patient’s full involvement and learning.
