Clinic Services


Acupuncture is the primary modality that most patients receive in the AOMA clinics, though there are many other adjunct therapies available. Acupuncture is the practice of inserting sterilized, stainless-steel needles (that are often as fine as a human hair) into the body at specific points to relieve pain or treat a disease. Acupuncture points are areas of designated electrical sensitivity. Stimulation of these points has been shown to be effective in the treatment of specific health problems.

Asian Bodywork

Some AOMA licensed practitioners offer Medical Qigong and Asian Bodywork. Please ask a receptionist about availability.

Medical Qigong works with the “qi” of individuals without the use of needles. It is well suited for very sensitive people, children and people in poor health. It involves working subtly with a person’s qi or energy in ways that are non-invasive, similar to Reiki. Medical Qigong is well suited for the following disorders: stress, anxiety, depression, headache, insomnia, poor memory, poor concentration, hypertension, PMS, perimenopausal syndrome, asthma, and digestive issues.

Asian bodywork has been practiced in China for over 2,000 years and is now considered an important healing modality in Chinese medicine. In this needle-free, hands-on therapy, Asian bodywork practitioners make recommendations for energetic exercises by rolling, tapping, and pressure to increase circulation and relieve pain throughout the body. Asian bodywork is used to effectively treat a wide range of musculo-skeletal conditions, including orthopedic injuries and chronic pain. It is also used successfully in stroke rehabilitation.

Herbal Consultation

Stand-alone herbal consultations are available if a patient does not desire to receive acupuncture or another modality during their visit. Ask a receptionist for details.

Chiropractic Care

AOMA is also proud to be the home office of respected chiropractor Mike Bandy, DC.

Dr. Bandy accepts appointments Monday through Friday.  Initial visits are about one hour and the cost is $170. Follow up visits are approximately 30 minutes and the cost is $75.

In addition to traditional chiropractic treatments, Dr. Bandy also uses Applied Kinesiology. AK is a form of evaluation that utilize muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism to determine how a person’s body is functioning. AK is used in addition to standard diagnostics to help to identify the cause of a health problem. When properly applied, the outcome of an AK evaluation will determine the best form of therapy for the patient. Since AK draws together the core elements of many complementary therapies, it provides an interdisciplinary approach to healthcare. Dr. Bandy also specializes in working with neurological disorders, allergies, and sports injuries. He is especially interested in helping people who have suffered from concussions and strokes. Dr. Bandy has been practicing in AOMA’s Professional Clinic since 2000.
