Wellness Strategy

Seeking balance and harmony

At Integrative Japanese Acupuncture and Wellness Center, Dr. Duckworth is committed to providing an integrative approach to health. Balance in all facets of life is the key to wellness. Wellness isn’t just the absence of disease. Wellness is the maximization of all the patient’s potentials. A multi-facet assessment and approach is Dr. Duckworth’s specialty.

Assess your current medical condition

  • Energetic assessment by observing pulses, taking a complete personal history, looking at skin tone and  color, and inquiring about your everyday energy levels.
  • Physical assessment reviewing all your past lab results and any imaging. Ordering new lab test and images when necessary.
  • Emotional assessment by discussing any ongoing emotional issues or imbalances. Ordering neurotransmitter tests.


  • Treatment Plan with acupuncture, integrative functional medicine, neurotransmitters re-balancing for the unique individual medical problems.
  • Diet and supplementation: an individualized diet and supplementation that fits the personal needs of each patient.
  • Exercise: specific exercises to mobilize the parts of the body that are having problems, overall exercise parameters based on age and ability.


With every decade come new health demands and adjustments. Also seasonal changes can causes need for adjustments in a health program. Retesting of bioidentical hormones is a yearly necessity.

Wellness Coaching

We all have tried to make changes to better our health status. All of us have failed from time to time to stay on the path to health. Coaching and having a strategic plan is another tool to help all of us realize our intentions. This is a collaborative effort between coach and patient to aid in making a reasonable plan and having support to meet the goals. Coaching and strategic plans can help you lose weight, follow medical prescriptions, in cessation of smoking or drugs, become grounded emotionally, change directions in your life and all kinds of other things.

When you are ready, designing a strategic plan and strategic coaching can help you stay on track and realize your goals.
