Welcome to Kramer Acupuncture
& Oriental Medicine
in Raleigh, North Carolina

Have you imagined yourself feeling well and vibrant? What are the things that you would want to do when feeling at your best? What does being free from illness mean to you, and what are you willing to do to get there?

Since 1997, Kramer Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine has been a dedicated wholistic clinic in helping you break through the limitations of illness. Wholistic simply means working with you as a “whole” person, and not merely just working on your “parts”. Oriental Medicine (OM) identifies and addresses the areas where you may not be functioning well to achieve whole body wellness. For thousands of years treatment techniques have been utilized that are as valid today as in the past. Ongoing scientific research is increasingly validating the efficacy of OM procedures.

Some of the things that we can do together are in getting an understanding of your health situations. We can find how best to reverse the illness or injury trends, and find the best integrative medicine techniques for a safe and effective outcome.

For those of you who have reached a satisfactory improvement of your illness or injury, or who want to excel in your health and performance, we can design health plans customized for those goals. Being well for the lifetime does take effort and commitment and a certain lifestyle. Staying well may not be easy, but having good health is definitely a prize most cherished.

Here are some of the plans available:

Cancer Care 
       +  while under physician care
         +  recovery phase (remission) 

Stop Smoking system

Sports Injury Recovery

Infertility and Birth Induction

Pain and Nervous system disorders

Weight Management & Healthy Lifestyle

Wellness Care & Illness Prevention  ---  for the aging population

I spend time listening to your health needs and the wellness goals that you are trying to achieve. With our work together I can then customize your health plan. Achieving your health goals may combine several protocols for speedy recovery and lasting good health. Treatments are "fine-tuned" based on improvements and results. 

  • Some common strategies combining different protocols:

Acupuncture with Herbal medicine for infertility
Electro-acupuncture with Tuina rehabilitation for sports injury
Herbal Medicine with Functional Nutrition if you need daily treatment (or for long distance patients)
Functional Nutrition with Exercise program with Auriculotherapy for Obesity and weight loss

Herbal Medicine with Acupuncture for pain and nervous system dysorders

And, other combinations for wellness care and illness prevention

Call to schedule an initial consultation so we can help improve your life!
I look forward to working with you.

These are my latest areas of study and research:

Advanced Master Tung's Acupucture: Internal Medicine

This seminar is a continuation of my study in the treatment methods of the famous, Master Tung. His notoriety comes from his skill, expertise, and success in treating difficult conditions. The seminar focused on theory and application in identifying correct acupuncture areas for specific internal illness treatment. This class is taught by Dr. Esther Su from California who has been using Master Tung's methods for decades.

Herbs and Other Dietary Supplements in Cancer Care
Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center - Integrative medicine

For TCM practitioners and other therapists,this course addresses important issues regarding herbal medicines and cancer treatment.This course addresses the safety and efficacy of herbal remedies in the cancer setting. It also provides a more general overview of herbs and other dietary supplements.This course provides practitioners with the knowledge and skills to:

  • Understand the historical perspective of herbal use
  • Identify supplements most commonly used by cancer patients
  • Recognize challenges associated with supplement use

IMMUNE MODULATION - Simplifying Complex Concepts
Presenter: Wally Schmitt, DC

This seminar focused on the biochemistry and mechanisms of the immune system. Information was given on some of the new discoveries of actions of the immune system in Auto-immune diseases, Allergy responses, and Inflammation reactions. Therapies that can heal an overactive or underactive immune system include Herbal medicine and concentrated food based nutrients. Muscle testing procedures were taught to isolate specific targeted therapy.

Practical Applications for Adrenal and Thyroid Health

This presentation reviewed endocrine physiology of the connection between the Thyroid and Adrenal glands. A review was given on the proper functioning of these glands with testing and observation when these glands aren't working well. There were also nutritional strategies presented to heal these glands for improved function and illness reversal.

This seminar was given by Dr. Annette Schippel and sponsored by Standard Process co. 

"I’m not looking to “fix my problem” but Brian Kramer has without a doubt enhanced my life with his compassionate, knowledgeable, and motivational approach. Prior to acupuncture I had irregular cycles, fatigue, and other symptoms that interfered with my optimal functioning. I am on my way to being the healthiest version of me.

Personally I believe in taking a holistic view on people and what’s holding us back from optimal wellness. Acupuncture and Brian’s philosophy aligns wonderfully with my beliefs. As a counselor, I’m adding to my professional toolbox with each visit. Lastly, I’m very grateful to the front desk staff (Laura, Tina, and Liz). I always feel so welcomed & uplifted when I come in!"
