Acupuncturist & Healer
Healing can mean many things: relief of symptoms, calming the mind and emotions, rebuilding body function. I believe healing should address the whole of who we are. We are made of body and mind. We are also spiritual beings, with a soul, and an individual path in life. The purpose of holistic health systems such as acupuncture is learning to listen to our body, mind and spirit. Symptoms are messages, indicating something is out of balance, demanding our attention. Pain and suffering can be a call to look at our lives; to address our excesses and deficiencies. The body will let us know when we are out of alignment. We hold the key to healing ourselves. But, first we must listen and understand what our body is trying to tell us.
Acupuncture as I practice it reintegrates the innate mechanism for self-healing. As partners-in-wellness, you and I search to discover where the problem is coming from and what the body considers necessary to resolve it. The body doesn’t lie. Acupuncture is a way to access our internal wisdom, realigning us to our truth. Reconnected, we can find our way back to wellness and peace.
Acupuncture is an ancient system of medicine, with a history spanning more than 2000 years. It was developed during the height of Chinese culture, and used for centuries to treat conditions of the physical body, mind and spirit. Within the Chinese medical classics is a remarkable study of human physiology. Chinese Medicine is focused on “qi,” the source of all physiological function. Acupuncture treatment works with qi, to regulate body function, restore health and expel disease. Thin, hair-like needles are inserted into specific points along channels of qi on the body to create an energetic reaction. Combinations of acupuncture points reset physiology gone awry to invigorate the expulsion of harmful pathogenic agents causing symptoms.
