Hello, dear reader! So sorry that it has been quite a while since my last post, and I have been busy with my Acupuncture practice, studying Chinese herbs, and moving into a new home in Philadelphia. I was encouraged to blog today by a client; she reminded me of the importance of sharing the positive benefits of Acupuncture, and so I'm relating two experiences from this week that reminded me why I love the healing practice of Acupuncture.
This first was a retired gentleman, suffering from depression and anxiety. After the very sad news of Robin William's passing this week he was determined to seek help. He sent me an email the day after his treatment saying that he had slept peacefully, and was feeling better. After just one treatment. I was heartened by his response and I think even he was a bit surprised, but Acupuncture can go a long way in helping those suffering from depression and anxiety.
The second new patient was a middle-aged woman who had been thinking of coming to see me for over a year, but had postponed her visit because of a less than positive experience with another Acupuncturist. Her main reason for coming in was "feeling off-balance" and "not like herself." She was experiencing high stress at work, and has been developing numerous food sensitivities and allergies in recent years.
After her treatment, she said she felt "lighter." She was more relaxed, and calm. I spoke to her on the phone this morning, and in her words "I feel like myself again."
If you feel like you haven't "felt like yourself" in a while, it is probably time to seek stillness, balance, and tap into the spark that makes you who you are. Acupuncture can help.
