I practice Taoist Five Element acupuncture. This style focuses on the internal energetic balance of the organ systems as well as the harmony between the individual and her environment. It is a simple, poetic, ancient style that often brings a sense of emotional well-being as well as relief of symptoms. I enjoy talking about the energetic spirit of the points to my clients so that their understanding aids their healing. Because treatments are tailored to supporting one's own healing system, they are suitable for a wide range of problems.

Acupuncture in Hardwick - 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. Hardwick 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.
