Welcome to Adirondack Integrative Health & Acupuncture

I’d like to introduce myself and a new way of looking at your health & well-being. My name is Kim Verstringhe and I’m a Licensed Acupuncturist in New York State, practicing Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In 2011 I opened Adirondack Integrative Health & Acupuncture; a new health & wellness center in Lake Placid, N.Y.

This new center is focused on Holistic Health Care & Wellness for you and your family. Rather than treating symptoms (the Western medicine approach) our holistic approach to healthcare involves taking into consideration ALL aspects of your life when developing a treatment plan. Acupuncture & Tradition Chinese Medicine (the Eastern medicine approach) focuses on treating the cause.

This means you now have a new choice, and there is now a place for you and your family to receive holistic treatment for many of the common and not so common things that ail you. Acupuncture & Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complete system of medicine, that has been thousands of years in the making. Most everything that you would visit your family, western-medicine physician for, can also be treated holistically, with equal effect, by Acupuncture and TCM.

A few common ailments well-treated with Acupuncture & TCM are general and localized pain, arthritis, colds and flu, gastrointestinal disorders, menstrual disorders, menopause, sleep problems, stress, reproductive issues, depression & anxiety etc. And because acupuncture treats the cause, from a holistic stand point, many times when you come in for one complaint, you may fortunately notice improvements in other parts of your body as well. Your digestion may be improved or you might find that you’re sleeping better as well. We call these positive side-effects!

The most common pediatric ailments we see include colds, flu and allergies. Many times, because Acupuncture is just one branch of TCM, needles may not be necessary, and a herbal formulation is all that is required. These are safe, all-natural, and have little to no side effects such as drowsiness. Visits are welcome for acute symptoms on a walk-in basis, with little to no wait, and are very affordable compared to the family physician or urgent care. If you have an HSA (Health Care Savings account) use it to pay for treatments for you and your family. Acupuncture & TCM is covered!

In order to help you achieve optimum health and wellness, we offer not only Acupuncture & TCM, but Traditional Chinese Herbal Medicine, Massage Therapy and Chiropractic care..

We invite you to explore all that our center offers at AdirondackIntegrativeHealth.com. You can also stop in and relax with some hot tea in our Zen room and talk to our staff. Our office is located at The Outpost Plaza, 55 Barn Road, Suite 202, Lake Placid, NY 12946.  We’re directly across the hall from High Peaks Dental.  Please feel free to call us with any questions you may have, or to schedule an initial consultation at 518-302-1941. We’d look forward to hearing from you, and learning how we can help you and your family be well and healthy.

Be Well!
