Welcome To the practice of Dr. Aimée Derbes, DACM, LAc
If you've been struggling to overcome a chronic health condition and feel exhausted from having tried everything (and yet nothing has really moved the needle), you're in the right place -- I help people with chronic issues feel well again, so they can stop worrying about their health and enjoy their lives again!
Does this sound familiar? Like a lot of New Yorkers, you've been working hard, doing everything "right" -- building the career of your dreams, trying to eat well and stay fit, nurturing relationships and maybe a family, trying to make it all look fun -- but really, underneath the flurry of constant activity, you've been suffering in silence, feeling alone, unable to enjoy the ride, success, or relationships because your health has been slowly crumbling under the intense long-term stress? You just can't ignore it anymore, and you feel like you can't keep going.
Maybe it's chronic migraines getting in the way of doing or enjoying anything; or you're dragging yourself out of bed and through each day with no energy, living on americanos because you haven't gotten truly restful sleep in years; everything you eat seems to lead to digestive problems; or your anxiety has completely overtaken you. Perhaps you find yourself with unexpected fertility challenges. Or, you finally discover you have an autoimmune condition or several (hallelujah, finally a diagnosis!), but the standard treatments have failed to help you…no matter what it is, you don't feel well, you're totally worn out, you're frustrated and disappointed, and maybe it even feels like you can't rely on your body anymore.
It's almost like it has taken over your life, and it has affected your work, your relationships, your ability to do and enjoy the things you used to love. And it feels like you need to solve this now, because you’ve become aware that, perhaps for the first time in your life, you are facing a situation that you don’t know how to handle: your health.
If I'm describing you or someone you know, have hope -- I have worked with many people just like you, so I know from experience the incredible shifts that are possible with just a little bit of willingness to let go of some old patterns that stopped working for you, and try something new. I offer customized treatment plans that can help you heal, remember how to prioritize supporting yourself through healthy choices, and regain control of your stress and health, so you can once again feel like you and your body are on the same side!
Depending on where you’re at, I may use and recommend the tools of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, Healing Touch / Reiki, and/or Breathwork to support you. Along the way, you'll learn new tools for unhooking from stress, and optimizing your health and enjoyment of life, no matter what challenges bring you into my office. Appointments are available in Brooklyn + Manhattan; I also offer herbal consultations, Healing Touch / Reiki, and Breathwork sessions over Skype. Learn more about my experience and approach to healing here!
