Alternative health services
Those looking for the curative properties of acupuncture and other alternative medicines can find therapeutic help at American Acupuncture Center, 4120 W. Maple Road, #104 A in Bloomfield Township. It is run by Dr. Serena LoDuca of Bloomfield Township, who is national board certified in acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine by the National Commission for the Certification of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM) and is state licensed in Michigan. “I do acupuncture and East Asian medicine – such as cupping therapy, Gua Sha, also known as muscle scraping, which is similar to cupping, and electric simulating. I am also an herbologist, and the only one in the Birmingham/ Bloomfield area.” LoDuca has extensive experience in pain management, whether it is muscle-skeletal, neurological, and/or emotional. “I specialize in muscle-skeletal disorders and in pain,” she said. “I can relax muscles with acupuncture needles and stimulate the body’s natural healing response.” She can help with migraines, anxiety, sciatica, menopausal symptoms, many rotator cuff issues, ringing in the ears, and many other issues. Two massage therapists are also on staff.
