About Deb Engelgau
Deb believes acupuncture compliments western medicine beautifully and seeks to incorporate both eastern and western concepts into her practice. She completed a post graduate specialization in Sports Medicine Acupuncture in Boston, MA. She is the only acupuncturist in Ohio with this certification. She specializes in:
- the treatment of acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain, trauma and injuries utilizing a combination of traditional acupuncture and more precise motor point locations (the entrance site of the motor nerve into the muscle). She's trained to assess pain using a combination of orthopedic tests, range of motion, manual muscle testing and palpation to correctly identify the areas needing treatment.
She also has experience and special interest in:
- the treatment of stress/anxiety and depression/worry/fatigue utilizing acupuncture and training in the Heart Math technique
- the treatment of women's gynecological and fertility issues by working in partnership with a practitioner of Mayan Abdominal massage and a naturopathic physician.
