About Evergreen Medical Acupuncture

At Evergreen Medical Acupuncture we use an anatomy-based acupuncture system and functional medicine to treat almost any condition.

Evergreen Medical Acupuncture is a team of experienced Acupuncture Doctors. Originally founded by Dr. Christina Fick, DOAM in 2012, Dr. Fick has expanded to train and include other Acupuncture Doctors in the Medical Acupuncture system. Dr. Fick only hires Licensed Acupuncturists who have an extra clinical Doctorate degree which is 1-2 years more than the standard Master’s degree program. Acupuncturists who hold a Doctorate degree are still, even though its becoming a more popular career choice, less than 20% estimated of the total licensed Acupuncturists in the United States.

Dr. Fick teaches her famous Flying Needle technique she learned in China to her other Acupuncturist employees. This painless style of needle is more effective at targeting smaller afferent nerve fibers that help treat hormonal and complicated cases.

COVID/Cleaning Protocols

We were lucky enough to build-out this clinic from bottom-up/top-down in 2019. We built it out with safety in mind.

  • No room shares air. Our closed HVAC system goes from our commercial, hospital-grade furnace to one room where the air is constantly circulating. It then goes back into the furnace, through a large HEPA filter, and then through a UVC light to sanitize the air, then back into that one room.
  • We have a UVC light in every treatment room and bathroom. After every patient the light sanitizes the air and surfaces for 5 minutes.
  • We spray every surface with 90% isopropyl alcohol after every patient
  • Every piece of linen is used once then bleached and sanitized in our in-house laundry (we don’t send our laundry out!)
  • All of our supplies like cups, otoscope tips, etc are cleaned in Simple Green anti-microbial then run through the dishwasher.
  • We monitor our air quality: We have a CO2 monitor that tells us how fresh the air is. Indoor air quality is typically at 1,000-2,000 ppm. Outdoor air quality is below 400. Our clinic constantly runs between 400-700 ppm!
  • We take our patients back to the room as soon as possible so the waiting room is as empty as possible.
  • We have professional cleaners clean our clinic every other day!
  • We do have a commercial grade ozone machine that we used quite a bit in 2020. If there ever was someone we suspected with COVID, we can run our ozone machine to eliminate any possibility of air-borne infection.

Plenty of Staff, Plenty of Rooms, Plenty of Appointment Times!

We have plenty of appointment times that are flexible around you!
We have a BEAUTIFUL new custom-built acupuncture clinic completed in August 2019! Everything was built with the patient in mind. Soundproofing, easy flow, treatment room comfort, custom sound system, hydraulic tables, stainless steel antimicrobial surfaces, 5 gorgeous comfortable treatment rooms, two restrooms. Everything is ADA compliant EXCEPT the restroom - they have a 28" opening with handrails but are not wheelchair accessible. The treatment rooms, the front door and parking lot all are wheelchair accessible.

We Have a Team of Acupuncturists!

All of our Acupuncturists hold an extra clinical Doctorate degree!

All acupuncturist doctors hired at Evergreen Medical Acupuncture work closely under Dr. Fick. They've been hand-selected and go through rigorous training to keep the standards high and the treatments superior.

We Offer the Best of Eastern & Western Medicine

We don't care where it comes from, we offer the best kind of medicine we can

Working in China you would think that Chinese Medicine is practiced in it's most pure and ancient form - Wrong! The Chinese now see the benefit of modern medicine and research and how it can be applied to the knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine. This is what we believe also. We try to use the techniques that get you better as fast as possible, we don't care where it comes from!

Often we will use blood pressure, blood serum tests, or neurological or physical exams to base our treatments off instead of tongue or pulse diagnosis.

We Treat Just About Everything

Between all of our Acupuncturists, we really can help everyone with any problem

Check out our "What Conditions Can Acupuncture Treat" section on our Why Acupuncture page for a full list of common conditions we see and treat.

We treat: Kids over the age 4, elderly folks and geriatrics, pregnant women, mentally and physically disabled people, acute injuries and sickness, patients with communicable diseases, and just about anyone else!

We do not treat: Pets and animals. Please see a licensed Veterinarian.

We Offer Advanced, Specialty Needle Technique

Dr. Christina Fick has mastered the Flick Technique
Afraid of needles? You're not alone, most people do not like needles. Dr. Fick has mastered the Flick technique which is an advanced and difficult to learn needle insertion technique. It requires speed and accuracy to flick the needle into place so that the needle prick is hardly felt. Dr. Fick has studied the effects the technique has on the brain and nervous system and it's effectiveness proves superior to traditional tube needling for most conditions. Dr. Fick trains many of the Evergreen Medical Acupuncture staff to use the Flick technique.

We Speak the Language of Your Medical Doctors

We value the information and treatments your Primary Care Physicians provide
One of the biggest differences of our clinic is our staff's ability to fully understand disease and pathology from a Western and science based language. Medical Doctors and Primary Care Providers (PCP) have the tough task of making a diagnosis for a patient. We support your PCP by providing a treatment to not only help the root cause but also with symptoms. We are often in contact with your PCP to communicate with them progress or get more information on your case. With this team effort, we find, you get better faster.

The Story Behind Our Brand...

Our logo is a spin on the traditional "YinYang" symbol often seen with many acupuncture references. The "YinYang" represents the opposing forces that work together. One cannot exist without the other. The brain replaces the "YinYang" and inside the brain is two chemical molecules: Gaba (on the left) and Glutamate (on the right). Gaba is like Yin; It is a neurotransmitter that is calming and helps with rest. While Glutamate is like Yang; A neurotransmitter that is excitable and helps with energy. The acupuncture needle in the middle symbolizes the ability to encourage chemical change within the brain with a needle, often described in ancient Chinese medical textbooks as the idea of Yin and Yang.
