M.OM, Diplomate of Oriental Medicine
Health Guardian Acupuncture
Lawrence Waechter graduated with his degree of Master of Oriental Medicine from Northwestern Health Sciences University in August 2016. Through his many internships, he now understands just how much daily stress can adversely affect the quality of life, and is a major contributor for chronic illness and pain.
Through Traditional Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture and herbal medicine, Lawrence endeavors to teach the body/mind/spirit of his patients how to reach balance, and to relieve the effects stress has on the individual, which manifests differently in each person.
By treating the whole person, instead of chasing symptoms, relief can be found, and without the side effects of drugs or surgery. He also believes that listening to, and showing compassion for, each patient, is as fundamental to a successful outcome, as the actual treatment itself.
