Most acupuncture clinics treat the area of pain directly. This means they insert needles directly into the parts of the body where the pain is most severe. The practitioners at Nature's Balance Acupuncture believe that this "adds insult to injury" and may even possibly further aggravate the painful condition.

Instead of inserting needles at the site of the pain, the practitioners at Nature's Balance Acupuncture use a 2,500 year old method of acupuncture based upon the "I Ching" or "The Book of Changes" called "The Balance Method". With this method, typically only the acupuncture points found on the scalp and ears, on the arms from the elbows to the fingers, and on the legs from the knees to the toes are used. In Traditional Chinese Medicine, the points found in these areas are considered to be the strongest of all 2,000+ points found on the body.

Because of the strength of these points and the way in which they are utilized, the results achieved are amazing, with pain relief often occurring within seconds. Over a series of treatments, long lasting relief can be achieved approximately 80% of the time.

An added benefit to this form of treatment is that the patient never has to take off their clothes. This results in efficient and relaxing treatments that are extremely effective.

In order to become proficient in this method of treatment, the practitioners at Nature's Balance Acupuncture have received extensive training from a master in "The Balance Method", Dr. Richard Teh-Fu Tan. Because of their dedication to being masters of this treatment method, they continue to travel across the globe attending lectures and seminars presented by Dr. Tan.

Janine left the health care field for a short period during which time she was a Project Director at Sears, Roebuck and Company. During this time, she directed a team of 20 project managers and the Quality Assurance organization accountable for successfully delivering an $82 million portfolio of projects for Home Services and Corporate Systems.

In 2002, Janine returned to the health care field and earned a Masters in Acupuncture from the Midwest College of Oriental Medicine. During this three year, 2,000+ hour, intensive program, Janine learned Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) "Zang Fu" system of physiology, pathology, diagnosis, and treatment strategy. In addition to all the Chinese Medicine coursework, the curriculum provided a solid foundation in needle technique, traditional accessory modalities, and the Western sciences such as anatomy, physiology, neurology and pharmacology. Janine also spent over 600 hours in the Midwest College's student clinics. In the clinics, Janine was able to gain invaluable experience treating a wide range of medical conditions. While building her knowledge and skills, Janine was also able to fine-tune her patient/healer sensitivities.
