Welcome

by Linda J. Moore, A. P.

Welcome to our website.  I hope to use this space to share some individual thoughts, and ideas, about holistic medicine and its place in today's world.  I'm gratified---and a little mystified----that a 3,000 year old practice like acupuncture is as relevant in the world today as it was then. 

As medical treatment costs spiral, acupuncture, herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, massage, homeopathy, and vitamin supplementation can offer significant relief and improve your daily life, preventing some of those costly medical interventions.

We live in a modern, busy, fast-paced world, but our bodies are pretty much as they were originally engineered.  The mental and emotional stresses of today have replaced a lot of the physical stresses of previous generations.  Many of us stare at computer screens instead of furrowed fields, and we left-click incessantly instead of chopping wood. 

There is a huge difference in how that affects our bodies and minds, but acupuncture can still help the body adapt and thrive by activating self-healing mechanisms and assisting a smooth flow of energy, or qi (pronounced "chee") internally. In Western terms, we know that acupuncture increases your body's levels of endorphins (your natural pain killers) and white blood cells (your body's healing cells).  The stresses are different, but a 3,000 year-old practice still works!
