Acupuncture can provide help for both chronic and acute pain, and is not dangerous. Acupuncture is a possible alternative to surgery. Often there are positive results in 1-3 sessions. Frequently there is total elimination of a pain problem; at the least, there is usually a lessening of pain. Pre-sterilized single-use needles are used. Comparatively, acupuncture is inexpensive and non-invasive. Health care plans, worker's compensation, and auto insurance often provide for payment. ( back to top )
Dr. Dennis Kessler uses acupuncture to treat a wide range of health problems, and maintains a special interest in the management of pain. By looking at pain from a traditional acupuncture approach, as well as from an in-depth orthopedic, neuro-muscular and anatomical perspective, he combines acupuncture with specific therapeutic and corrective stretch exercises which quickly relieve acute and chronic pain.
EACH ONE OF US IS AN INDIVIDUAL, and our bodies respond differently to the same stimulus. Ideal systems of health care recognize our individuality, and work with its unique pattern to bring us to our highest level of health.
For a number of years, Dr. Dennis S. Kessler has been developing and perfecting a powerful system of acupuncture to effectively treat and energize patients who have,
in the past, shown little or no response to 'traditional acupuncture' or to other medical treatment. His style of acupuncture acknowledges the inherent characteristics, health problems, disease tendencies, and strengths and weaknesses of each individual.
Dr. Kessler works closely with you to determine the best way to meet your individual needs, and always takes the time to answer any questions you may have. His initial office visit includes an individualized treatment based on an in-depth and detailed history, examination and evaluation. Follow-up visits are scheduled as necessary with flexible appointments including Saturday hours.
YOU ARE WELCOME to call Dr. Kessler at 310/552-0649 to ask specific questions or make an appointment. At Dr. Dennis Kessler's office, located on North Bedford Drive in Beverly Hills, we combine a straightforward and professional approach to treatment in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere for positive results!
