Dr. Travis Baker has a mission to empower individuals with their overall health and well-being. As an avid learner and researcher, he is always looking for ways to further assist in a patient’s recovery. Recently, he completed post-graduate certification in Medical Acupuncture and completed his fellowship through the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture (IAMA). In addition, he is trained and certified in Facial Enhancement & Cosmetic Acupuncture. His current endeavor is completing diplomat status through the IAMA. Acupuncture is a neurological phenomenon that works by signaling the brain and the nervous system to release various chemical messengers in the body, including painkillers called endorphins. These innate, morphine-like chemicals influence the body’s awareness of pain, relieve it, and promote a feeling of well-being. The human body has an instinctive intelligence to heal itself and acupuncture is used to stimulate this innate response. Once people have experienced the benefits of acupuncture they become more in tune with their own bodies and realize they need to listen to the little warning signals, which may have been ignored for so long.
