Acupuncture is an effective form of medical treatment that has evolved into a complete holistic health care system. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used their skills for millennia to help people become well and stay well.
Acupuncture promotes natural healing in the body. It can reduce pain, stress, and anxiety; improve sleep and digestion, enhance immunity, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems.
Jody is a caring and compassionate practitioner who will take the time to listen to you and provide the quality of care that you often do not get from your other health care providers. Acupuncturists have many tools available to engage your body’s natural healing response. Besides acupuncture she often uses cupping or gua sha or moxibustion or electrical stimulation applied to the pins as well as using infrared heat therapy in the treatment. She has also received advanced training on using therapeutic essential oils in the treatment of mental and emotional conditions. In 2019, Jody completed training in Point Injection Therapy where homeopathic substances such as Traumeel and Zeel are injected into acupuncture points and trigger points to reduce acute and chronic pain. Jody is a Level Two Healing Touch Practitioner and may also incorporate that into a session.
If you have any questions about whether acupuncture is right for you please call 206-293-2774 for a complimentary 15 consultation. I look forward to seeing you soon!
