Back to Basics: How an Acupuncturist Understands the Body

The take home message is this: acupuncture is about relationships. As an acupuncturist, I seek to understand the relationship between different energy systems in your body, the relationships between a number of physiological forces at work in each of us, and the relationship between your energy and the energy of the outside world.

Eating Disorders

Eating Disorders are complex pathologies that affect all levels of being, with physical manifestations, emotional imbalances, mental insecurities, and spiritual challenges.  Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine can work alongside nutritional counseling and psychotherapy to empower patients with Eating Disorders to heal themselves.

Grief

The beauty of TCM lies in its intricate way of understanding the web of energy in the human body – and that energy manifests in the physical, the mental, the emotional, and the spiritual sides of ourselves. Thus, TCM can be a wonderful tool to ease some of the emotional pain of a break-up, the loss of a loved one, or other disappointment, heartache, and grief.
