News and Tidings
Hello to all.
These are the developments and the changes that are taking place at The Gilbert Clinic.
Same Great Space, Better Climate Control
Firstly, I am happy to say that we will be staying in our present location for at least the next four years. As part of this renewal, we are improving the lighting in the clinic rooms. Also, as many of you will be delighted to learn, we have negotiated for the installation of a separate HVAC system in the clinic. This will mean that the temperatures in the treatment rooms can now be controlled improving patient comfort whilst receiving acupuncture.
Acupuncture for Neuropathic Pain
Over the last 10 years I have been collating information from my own work and the studies that have been published in medical journals. From this analysis I have concluded that acupuncture does make a sizable impact on the vast majority of patients who experience neuropathic pain. What does that mean? It means that there is a safe, non-surgical, pill-free, side effect free method of working with neuropathic pain.
This year I will be reaching out to the community with regards to neuropathic pain. I will be presenting acupuncture to support groups, including Diabetes and Cancer patient support groups.

New Mobile Website
TheGilbertClinic.com has been mobilized for smart phone and tablet users. Pages are easier to read; no more zooming in and out. Please switch to desktop mode for the search feature. Our Blog is particularly colorful and beautiful on the mobile site.
Lastly, a big thank you for all of you who have referred or talked well about the work I am engaged in. It is both humbling and evokes an immense gratitude in me. My continuing responsibility is (and will always be) to provide high quality, affordable Traditional Medicine in the aspects of healthcare where it is most needed and effective. I hope you will continue to spread the word so that acupuncture can become standard care for many conditions, in the USA, as it is in the rest of the world.
