Acupuncture training for Dr. Helton

I am proud to announce the beginning of my acupuncture training through the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture. I am seeking to attain Fellowship status with the IAMA and, ultimately, my Diplomate in acupuncture. This is a multi year 300+ post doctoral training program designed to give doctors the skills necessary to implement acupuncture in their practices. I’m hoping to broaden my scope of practice and gain new tools specifically in acute and chronic pain care, allergy/sinus treatment, digestive disorders, and overall wellness enhancement. Patients have asked me for years about referrals to acupuncturists but I’ve not known who to send them to. During my Kennedy Decompression Technique Certification, I had the pleasure to meet and learn from Dr. Bill Davis of Ennis, TX. Dr. Davis incorporates acupuncture side by side in his practice along with decompression, laser therapy, active therapeutic motion rehab, and Turbosonic whole body vibration. I’m excited to begin my training and hope to be able to begin implementing certain treatments by summer 2009.

Patient Appreciation Day Success!

Helton Chiropractic would like to thank all the patients who helped us make our Patient Appreciation Days a success. Drs. Helton and Wolf were able to see almost 100 patients on that Tuesday and together we raised $1000 for the Texas Boys Ranch. Once again, we were happy to have SelectComfort out to demonstrate their Sleep Number bed to the waiting patients. We also had Keva Juice supplying delicious drinks. River of Life Health food store also provided great information free to waiting patients. Again, we’d like to thank the patients, staff, and other businesses for helping us have a truly wonderful day.
