Acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine are medical arts that have been in use for over 2,000 years. Acupuncture is based on the idea that when the body is in balance, it is healthy. By inserting tiny, painless needles at specific points on the body, acupuncture helps restore that balance and helps alleviate a wide range of ailments from pain to digestive issues to depression and anxiety to fertility problems. It is also deeply relaxing – something that many first time acupuncture clients are surprised to find.
Chinese herbal medicine works in a similar way. Each herb has qualities that are warm or cool, strengthening or reducine, etc. And by combining them in certain ways the herbalist can restore balance to the body. Acupuncture can be used without herbal medicine, and viceversa depending on the situation and personal preference. Heather is nationally licensed in both acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine.
