Yep, even the acupuncturist gets acupuncture! Here are my top 5 reasons for me to make an appointment.
1. ACUPUNCTURE FOR PAIN RELIEF
Acupuncture is great for pain. For me it is that achey pain in my neck and shoulders. I have a history of car accidents, nothing major, but I feel like ever since my neck and shoulders need help.

2. ACUPUNCTURE FOR EMOTIONAL STRESS
Do you know that feeling when you can’t get over something? Something goes wrong, it’s upsetting and you can’t stop thinking about it. You over think and rethink, over and over again. You drive your friend nuts! In the end we can create emotional stress and anxiety when we do not move on. This is getting stuck in your 5 Element cycle and the good news is acupuncture can move that stuck Qi. It will help you get into the next phase of letting go. Acupuncture is great for emotional health, stress and anxiety!

3. ACUPUNCTURE HELPS WITH INSOMNIA AND SLEEP DISORDERS
Sleep is our chance to recuperate and rejuvenate. I’ve struggled with sleep since childhood. A wonderful side effect to acupuncture for me is getting a full nights sleep and lucky for me it lasts the whole week! An acupuncture treatment can help with sleep disorders and insomnia.
4. TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE FOR WOMEN’S HEALTH
Women suffer from a variety of reproductive and gynecological issues and Traditional Chinese Medicine can offer a lot of help. For example, when I feel a yeast infection coming on, I go straight to Chinese Medicine and get an herbal formula. (Lucky me I can make my own formulas. Call me today to find out how an herbal prescription is filled.) There are other issues for women as well such as UTI’s, PMS symptoms, and vaginal discharge. Consider and herbal formula for these issues.

5. TRADITIONAL CHINESE MEDICINE IS PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE
Traditional Chinese Medicine is known for it’s preventative care. As an acupuncturist I have been trained to see more subtle patterns of dis-ease. And not only that…I can treat it! It does not need to show up on an X-ray. This is another reason I love going for my acupuncture treatments. I truly believe in the power of acupuncture as preventative medicine.
