Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing that treats the whole person, the body, the mind and the spirit. The goal is to restore balance, like tending a garden. The practitioner looks to treat the underlying imbalance, not just alleviate symptoms.
Acupuncture is an ancient system of healing that treats the whole person, body, mind and spirit. The goal is to restore balance, like tending a garden. The practitioner looks to treat the underlying pattern of disharmony, not just alleviate symptoms. That being said, most people come to my office with a complaint or a symptom. Acupuncture is well known for treating pain, and is effective with arthritis, women’s health concerns, anxiety, depression, insomnia, infertility, post-operative pain, injuries, addictions, nightmares, fatigue, digestive problems and chronic illness. Acupuncture can also be helpful with difficulties that are the effect of mental and emotional conflicts within a person's life and from the stresses of living in these challenging times. But just as noteworthy, patients experience renewed energy and resilience. A sense of inner calm, groundedness and access to joy often accompany treatment and are one reason why I delight in this work. Acupuncture deeply nourishes in unanticipated ways.
I am happy to meet with you in my office or speak with you on the phone to answer any questions you may have as you consider whether acupuncture may be a suitable option for you. I have been serving the Midcoast community for 32 years. I am committed to quality care, and being a good and steady listener.
