Let Me Help You

We are in a unique position in the field of Chinese and natural medicine. People have come from all over because of the work we do. With our Nesshi Therapy and NAET Allergy work combined, we get people when they have no place else to go to get the healing behind the problem. It is a real joy to turn around problems like Colitis and Crohn's Disease, Fibromyalgia,  deeply embedded menstrual problems and even pre-cancerous conditions. Of course, we also do a lot of chronically sore backs, shoulder, headaches, and migraines and have a high rate of success. When you are ready, I hope to be able to see you as well.

Acupuncture “Better To Nourish Life, Than To Work Against Death” Actually, there is so much written on acupuncture. Contrary to when I started, I find that a lot of my patients have had acupuncture before. Furthermore people  are starting to…

I just wanted to let you know how well the Nesshi treatments have worked for me.

I can't believe the difference it has made. I'm constantly catching myself and realizing that I don't hurt!! I'm biking and walking a lot.

My husband has been really great. He's making sure that I'm eating all the right stuff.  We now have homemade chicken stock in the freezer at all times Now might be a good time to invest in chicken futures.

Incredible Bowel Movements, Thanks to Joel Whitehead.

For nearly seven years I had an average of two bowel movements per week. I suffered from abdominal pain, very bad gas and low energy. I tried every treatment I could find; conventional and alternative. But nothing worked. Then I tried your treatments. You gave me two weeks of allergy elimination with acupuncture and a week of Nesshi therapy. A week after my last treatment I suddenly started having bowel movements every day, no more abdominal pains, very little gas and increased energy. It's been two months now and thing are still going strong.


I owe you a lot. Thanks Joel.

Allergy free? I can't believe it! After 9 years of hives, headaches, fasts, pills and salves, I am allergy free thanks to your treatments. I'll miss my visits, but will enjoy eating everything again.

I am deeply grateful.

I have come here from Switzerland to study English. I came to see Dr. Whitehead because I have been having much stress, depression and anxiety for many years. Dr. Whitehead is able to see what I need and I have only one treatment a week for only 5 weeks now and I feel completely cured. Thank you very much.

Gentle Joel  with the healing of the Nesshi treatment.

I had unbearable pains in my lower back, through the pelvis and into the lower legs. After nine treatments the pain is gone and I can get on with my work. I also had arthritis really bad in my knuckles, shoulders and knee, which has all gone.

The best thing is the hot flushes are down to a slight warming. My organs are working properly again...all with the Nesshi treatments.

Thanks Joel.
