An Acupuncturist is Supposed to KEEP You Healthy!

Chinese herbs example modality


In Ancient China, you did not pay your Acupuncturist if you were sick!

You paid your Acupuncturist when you were well!

The Chinese culture and medicine stresses longevity.  How do we cultivate energy?  How do we stay healthy?  What foods will keep us healthy?

In contrast, Western culture seems to ask us to spend every bit of energy we have as soon as possible and to spend more than we have, all the time.  Our Western Medicine often manages disease with drugs or waits as things build to a point of disease.

Acupuncturists want to treat you regularly to keep you healthy.  Many patients “try” Acupuncture and associate it with the specific issue that brought them to the Acupuncturist.  Essentially, we apply our Western mindset to this Eastern medicine.  This is what I wanted to share with you this month.  And it was very timely, as one of my patients was questioning if she was ready to just take herbs for a while and stop acupuncture.  I explained to her, that every time I treat her, I help to prevent arthritis and to keep her eyes healthy and to allow her system to calm down and de-stress.  Seeing my patients in person, evaluating tongue and pulse, and making those adjustments to the body function through acupuncture or herbs or supplements is my job.

I hope you hire me! continue reading »
