I have been in practice a long time – going on 20 years! It seems like my decision to start acupuncture school was yesterday. Fast forward to now! We have a busy practice with 5 acupuncturists and a CranioSacral therapist and collectively see over 200 patients a week! Our practice continues to grow and I am extremely grateful!
In my experience, everyone wants to live a long healthy life in which we are free of illness and physical limitations. We do many things to take care of ourselves. We take vitamins, supplements, exercise, eat healthy, meditate, sleep, rest, develop hobbies, and a whole bunch of other activities. Some of us are proactive and others – reactive! However we get there – taking care of our bodies becomes a priority at some point or another!
I am also finding that
“more and more people are seeking out acupuncture”
on an ongoing basis to prevent illness, reduce pain and stay well longer! This makes complete sense to me!
Traditional Chinese Medicine understands that our body has its own ability to promote healing! When we are sick with a cold, we get better. When we have a cut, it heals. The more we take care of our body – the quicker and better it heals. Acupuncture is a treatment that provides the groundwork for healing by strengthening our body’s immune system! By working with our body’s own life force – QI energy – acupuncture builds a foundation to prevent illness and promote wellness.
Much like a foundation for a house, our roots of a tree – our body needs to be strong in order to fight off illness. Acupuncture is a modality that helps strengthen, build, develop, enhance our health and wellness.
I first started my journey with acupuncture several years before I actually went to acupuncture school. I was living in Chicago at the time. Anytime I felt a cold coming on, felt symptoms related to my menstrual cycle or was under stress, I would go for a couple acupuncture sessions. Acupuncture provided the foundation that I needed to avoid further health issues from developing.
If you would like to stay well longer, heal faster, reduce the likelihood of chronic illness, come in (or back) for some acupuncture and reap the benefits of this ancient medicine! Contact us for an appointment.
“In good health!”
