I work with women going through fertility treatments or looking to regulate issues regarding their health (stress, mood, weight, fertility issues, PTSD). They have tried many things but don't know what helps best. Good problem solvers, intuitive, they are strong professionals in their field looking for a comprehensive multifaceted approach to heal their situation naturally. They understand there is something about self cultivation and lifestyle that is easier with acupuncture - this sense of 'chi' and vitality they have a sense of but want to experience more of for deeper healing.

Acupuncture in 20016 - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. 20016 acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into the body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
