‘m Geoff Hudson – a licensed acupuncturist and herbalist in Springfield, Missouri. I have a 4-year Masters of Traditional Chinese Medicine and am an Allied Health Professional Acupuncturist at CoxHealth.
It’s my goal to provide you the best Chinese Medicine has to offer in order to take back control over your health! I hope this site provides you with helpful information on Traditional Chinese Medicine.
My special interest is helping with Women’s Health issues, such as menstrual pain, endometriosis, fertility issues, menopause support, etc. I treat a wide range of health concerns for men and women including: migraine headaches, arthritis, pain, immune support, digestive issues, etc.
My post-graduate training for acupuncture was completed at the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NIAOM) where I earned a 4-year Master of Traditional Chinese Medicine (MTCM) degree. This degree integrates the practice of Chinese Herbal Medicine with Acupuncture and includes 900 hours of clinical internship. Additionally, the education emphasized integration of Western and Chinese medicine including training in herb and pharmaceutical drug interactions.
This is important since many people are taking pharmaceutical drugs these days, and it’s important to know what Western drugs wouldn’t work well with certain Chinese herbs. Great results are achieved using a synergistic mix of acupuncture and herbal medicine, which closely follows the way that Chinese medicine has been practiced for the last 2,500 years!
People often ask if acupuncture can treat ____ (fill in the blank) disease. With this medicine, we treat the patient, not the disease. Since each person is unique, the treatment must be unique to fit that person. This uniqueness has given me the opportunity to learn many things from my patients. I’ve had the chance to help people with all kinds of complaints who were unable to find help with other mainstream options.
Common complaints people seek treatment for include arthritis, pain, Ob/Gyn problems, migraines, headaches, insomnia, difficulty in losing weight, allergies, etc.. Still – even though two people may come in with the same Western-defined disease, each person will receive a unique, personalized treatment.
