Natural Medicine for Overactive Bladder

If you  “gotta’ go” to the bathroom urgently or too often and you have been diagnosed with Overactive Bladder (AOB), our comprehensive treatment will improve your sleep, social life, exercise routine, and/or your productivity at work! 
Our 100% natural therapies will help you have the quality of life you want and deserve WITHOUT the adverse effects of prescription medications, injections or surgery

Our unique blend of natural therapies will help you with all the symptoms associated with Overactive Bladder, including:

  • Urgency to urinate

  • Nighttime urination

  • Urine leakage

  • Urination frequency 

Why patients love our Overactive Bladder
treatment program:


  • It’s incredibly safe

    Acupuncture along simple dietary modifications and targeted supplements are proven to be safe and effective for the treatment of Overactive Bladder.

  • Proven results

    We have been able to help many people who present with urinary urgency, frequency or leakage. Studies have shown that acupuncture improves all these symptoms with minimal if any, side effects.

  • It’s fast

    Our experience treating overactive bladder means we know how to get you feeling better quickly and efficiently. Patients often report significant improvement in symptoms within days or a few weeks. 

  • Lasting results

    Acupuncture treatment along with some lifestyle and dietary modifications will make the results last a long time and even when the symptoms partially come back, a shorter and faster course of therapy will easily correct them and help you get your life back.

How our OAB treatment plan helps you feel better fast.

  • Acupuncture stimulates the nerves that go to your bladder.

    Acupuncture stimulates the nerves that go to your bladder and pelvic floor helping your bladder function properly.

  • Acupuncture re-establishes the communication between your brain and your bladder.

    In OAB, the nerve signals between your bladder and brain don’t work properly. Acupuncture can correct the miscommunication between your brain and bladder decreasing OAB symptoms.

  • Mild and gentle electrical stimulation reestablishes bladder-brain communication (Percutaneous Tibial Nerve Stimulation-PTNS).

    PTNS is done by mild and gentle stimulation of the tibial nerve in your ankle. The tibial nerve runs up your leg and thigh to your lower back where it stimulates the sacral plexus which innervates the bladder and pelvic floor and is responsible for their function.

  • Targeted nutritional supplements that can help control your bladder and help your symptoms.

    We will ensure that we carefully choose the right supplements that will help acupuncture to reduce or eliminate your symptoms.

  • Results are accelerated with simple dietary and lifestyle changes.

    We have experience with simplified protocols that are sustainable over the long term. No hardcore diets or 40 pills a day supplement routines. Once you feel the positive changes in your body, you will never want to go back to your old habits again.

Why our Natural treatment for OAB
works so well…

  • We address the root cause.

    Our process includes finding and attacking the root cause. This is why so many have found relief with our treatments, and other therapies have failed. Even those with a long history of OAB have found significant relief.

  • We use an all natural approach.

    You may have heard from your doctor that the only way to treat is with strong medications and you have not found any relief with conventional treatments or you just don’t want to receive that type of treatment because of the side effects. We have found that many people who don’t respond well to conventional treatments often respond very well to our natural approach.

  • We awaken your body’s natural healing system.

    Despite what you have led to believe that your body is broken and that you will never be able to be symptom-free there is hope. Your body never forgets how to heal itself and our natural approach will reactivate your body’s own capability to heal itself by making its own anti-inflammatory and healing substances.

  • We keep it simple and results are quick.

    Feeling better and improving your quality of life does not have to be difficult or take a long time. Simple, targeted lifestyle and diet changes, along with our targeted natural therapies, are a very clear and concise way to attack the problem head-on, and patients often see reduce symptoms and improvement within WEEKS, not MONTHS.

Our powerful combination of powerful therapies include (And YOU get to choose which therapies you would like to incorporate):

  • Acupuncture is one of the most powerful ways to naturally stimulate your body’s innate healing process. Then, it gets right to work repairing and restoring all cells and tissues.

    Gentle Acupuncture

  • Two needles are connected to a mild electrical current. This current generally applies more stimulation to acupoints. It is painless and the only sensation can be tingling or mild vibration.  It is contraindicated in patients with pacemakers, heart disease, strokes, seizures or epilepsy so let us know if you have any of these.

    Gentle Electroacupuncture (for TPN stimulation)

  • Moxibustion is the use of the dried herb mugwort or Artemisia argyi. This herb is burnt close to acupuncture points or areas of the body. This creates a warmth that penetrates deeply stimulating blood flow, reducing inflammation and swelling.


  • Herbs simultaneously cure and strengthen the body. This dual-action is something unique to herbal medicine that makes it very well suited to treat many inflammatory and pain conditions.

    Herbal Medicine

  • When your nervous system is calm, the hormonal system, immune system, digestive, and circulatory systems all calm down, too. This means a more focused mind, a more resilient immune system, less inflammation, better circulation, and optimal nutrient absorption.

Common questions and answers

Does it hurt?

We use very thin needles and they are inserted with a very gentle technique. Often you will not feel when needles are inserted.

How long does it take to see results?

It depends on your history, how long have you had the condition and additional factors of your lifestyle. It takes around 12-14 treatments total to achieve maximum results but only a few treatments to start seeing favorable changes.

Will I have to keep coming forever?

The vast majority of patients don’t need long-term maintenance. Once their condition is resolved, it stays that way. However, occasional tune-ups might be required.

Is natural medicine REALLY powerful enough to help my OAB?

Absolutely, natural medicine actually helps your body make more of its own medicine, which is more powerful and potent than any man-made medicine.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments you’ll need depends on your age, your overall health, and for how long have you had your symptoms. Because your situation is unique, we will be able to tell you more about this after you do your free consultation.

Your initial consultation is free. Come meet us in person and learn more.

Or, just call 480-243-2453 and we'll be happy to answer your questions.

Our mission is simple: Exceptional Caring. Exceptional Results.


“Over the past years, my husband and I have used the professional services of Karla on many occasions and for many different conditions.  We have found she has a true concern for her patients. She takes time to listen and then treats the problem(s). In each case, Karla did extra research to check the latest treatments and then proceeded to further treat us. The result has always been positive. We have both agreed that she treats you for a period necessary to show results and then releases you, rather than keep you coming back as some other practices do. Thank you, Karla, for your concern and the use of your hand in a tender way when inserting needles. It is often that we will say..."have you put a needle in?"...since we felt no pain or insertion. We will certainly be back whenever her skills are called for.”
