MEET PRACTITIONER PAMELA WAKE

My interest in health and alternative medicine began when I was a teenager. Having experienced continual side effects from prescription medications, dealing with scoliosis and the possibility of having back surgery. I began a journey of investigating and learning about nutrition, science and different ways I could get my body at the highest level of health possible.

My first experience with creating a healing protocol was when my husband was diagnosed with a Kidney condition. I read countless books on natural medicine and herbs and finally put together a formula and diet for him to try. He used it and successfully reversed his condition. When trying to starting a family in my twenties, I found I had considerable endometiral adhesions in my reproductive system and abdomen. Unfamiliar with natural protocols at that time, I underwent laparascopic surgery and medication to eradicate as much of the unhealthy tissue from both areas. I was completely unaware I had endometriosis for quite some time, having no real symptoms, until I was reaching to hit a ball when playing tennis and felt a strange pain in my side. The whole experience was baffling and I was grateful that the results were positive and I was able to conceive.

Through all of these experiences, I learned that I had an excellent ability to tackle a multitude of tasks efficiently, and compassionately, with keen diagnostic skills. I did not take what doctors said at face value, and always looked for the best way to approach health challenges naturally and in the least invasive way. While stressful, in the end, these experiences showed me just how strong and capable I was. It pushed me to live a better and happier life, and forced me to look at the quality of my own health. Today, I feel so blessed to do what I love and help the people in my community live the healthiest and happiest life possible.

Acupuncture FAQ


What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine needles through the skin at specific points on the body with the intention of manipulating the circulation of energy or “Qi” to invoke healing. It is a proven medicine that’s been used for over 3,000 years with clinical success for a variety of issues.

Acupuncture & Pain

Acupuncture stabilizes the nervous system, reduces pain and inflammation, and blocks the body’s pain response while releasing endorphins and serotonin. MRI studies reveal the neurological mechanisms of acupuncture on human health. Research published in Autonomic Neuroscience demonstrates that stimulation of specific acupuncture points induces blood flow changes in specific brain networks, as well as multiple “acupoint-brain-organ” pathways.

Acupuncture & Fertility

Acupuncture is commonly used in conjunction with other fertility treatments. Acupuncture naturally increases hormone levels, ovarian and follicular function, increases blood flow to the reproductive organs, and decreases the stress often experienced with trying to get pregnant.

Acupuncture for Stress & Anxiety

Acupuncture reduces stress and anxiety by taking the body out of the “fight or flight” response, calming the nervous system, increasing serotonin, and putting the body back into homeostasis.  It has the wonderful side effect of creating a more positive outlook, mental focus and calming the mind.

What To Expect At Your First Appointment

A complete health review so I can get to know the level of your physical and mental health.  An assessment of your health as it relates to your complaint(s) and desired outcome. Creation of a treatment plan.  A full-body acupuncture treatment which may include cupping, gua sha or other modality. A post-treatment assessment and fine-tuning of goals to reach best outcome possible.  Recommended level of care, including herbal, nutritional and lifestyle recommendations.

Lisa Mead

 

"The inflammation decreased dramatically... I went to Pam for an inflamed Achilles tendon. The inflammation decreased dramatically just after a few visits. I continued treatment for 8 weeks to help continue the healing and restore balance. I loved that Pam does a full body treatment and not just treat the affected area. The ACU sessions were very relaxing. I also loved that Pam does take insurance."

 

Barbara Dean

"I had a miscarriage after 2 months and researched what I could do to get pregnant again.  I found research the supported doing acupuncture for infertility to reset my cycles, regulate sporadic ovulation, and increase HCG levels.  I also decided to try acupuncture to help with my stress and anxiety and to have dedicated time to decompress and feel much more relaxed. I am pregnant with twins and very healthy."

 

Megan Alexander

 

"Go see Pamela - you won't be disappointed! If you are looking for an Acupuncturist in the North Phoenix, North Scottsdale, Cave Creek area, you should definitely go see Pamela Wake. I was referred to Pamela by my Chiropractor, and have been seeing her for several months for a variety of issues. Pamela is super - very knowledgeable, caring and gentle. She is so easy to talk to, and really works to understand the problem and provide individualized treatment. Did I mention gentle? My husband saw her last week and was thrilled that it did not hurt at all! Bottom line - go see Pamela - you won't be disappointed!"

 

Lucy Livermore

 

 
 

"I had been suffering with bilateral carpal tunnel issues for a year (I am a dentist so this was a serious threat to my livelihood). Also I had suffered with plantar fasciitis on both feet for many years. Pam has provided me relief from both problems and patiently listens to all my other aches and pains.  I would highly recommend Pam's expertise and golden touch to help with any problem areas."

"I had terrible lower back and sciatica pain and hadn’t slept in a week. Pam gave me such great care and I’m happy to say I slept pain free last night and feel like my congestion is almost gone! Thanks Pam!!!"

 

Karyn Iden Hendricksen

"...the pain in the sacrum area was completely gone. Before I came to Pam for acupuncture treatments, I was experiencing much pain deep in my lower back (sacrum) area. This pain had been causing discomfort for two years, and to treat it, I went for chiropractic adjustments and many, many deep tissue massage therapy sessions. After my initial 90-minute acupuncture session with Pam, the pain in the sacrum area was completely gone.  I was simply amazed by this! Follow up visits are important, and I truly feel these sessions are so therapeutic and very relaxing. I am so happy to have stumbled upon your practice.  You really have changed my life!"
