Expert Tips

Washing hair removes excess sweat and oil, as well as unwanted products from the hair and scalp. Often hair is washed as part of a shower or bathing with shampoo, a specialized surfactant. Shampoos work by applying water and shampoo to the hair.

Loved by our patients

  • Dr. Trahan has successfully treated me for chronic headaches and female problems that I had been affected by for 3+ years. I began seeing him when I became exasperated with the poor results and side effects of the perscription drugs given by my MD. After a thorough consultation with Dr Trahan, he advised a combination of herbs and acupuncture treatments, which I responded so well to, that I feel better than I have in years.

    Dr. Trahan’s vast knowledge of herbal medicine and kind demeanor make for an informative and pleasant experience. I would highly recommend Dr. Trahan to anyone who has been disappointed in traditional medicine, wants results, and is seeking a natural approach for optimal health.

  • Dr. Trahan is a fantastic acupuncturist and herbalist with over 20 years experience. He listens well and asks the right questions about the whole person, and has successfully treated me for a variety of health issues from asthma to back pain. I have relied on his expertise since 1998. Dr. Trahan has been able to not only successfully treat my chronic asthma and breathing problems, where “Western” medicine has either failed or worsened my condition, he has given me a comprehensive education in how to listen to my body and monitor my overall health. He has helped me to breathe without inhalers or antibiotics for the first time in my life, for close to 2 years! He has also been able to effectively treat other “minor” ailments. The end result is that I am happier and healthier than I have ever been.
