The ethos of my practice is not only to treat the main condition that is presented to me but to discover the underlying patterns that are causing functional disharmony within your system. My purpose, while collaborating with you during your care, is to connect the dots to what may seem, to you, like a “laundry list” of symptoms and multiple complaints. I aim to uncover where these symptoms intersect and merge creating the discomfort you are experiencing. Through the lens of Chinese medicine and other ways I approach the body I am able to see a treatable pattern that not only addresses the acute concern, it will also treat the deeper root cause. Because the body is a dynamic and beautifully intricate system it sometimes requires extra support when faced with an acute or chronic crisis to return to its equilibrium. This is how I can support you in finding that balance.

My goal is to help you recover as soon as I can without compromising your care so you can get back to the life you want to live. – Shawn Sisneros, L.Ac., CHPC

A note on treatment expectations:

Some conditions take longer than others to treat however there should be some noticeable change after one treatment with progressive shifts continuing to happen along the way. By the 3rd-4th treatment there should be more sustained changes and by the 5th-6th treatments there will be noticeable sustained shifts. Then, only occasional treatments, if needed, will be necessary to facilitate your body’s ability to heal. However, there are exceptions to this, if and when there is need to be referred out for other supportive care Shawn monitors this along the way and will have an open discussion with you about his recommendations.
