Acupuncture aims to understand the whole person and considers the inherent connections between our body, mind, emotions and life history, treating the root of the imbalance to resolve symptoms.
Acupuncture is a painless and relaxing treatment that works by stimulating specific high energy points along energetic pathways called Meridians. The acupuncture needles are hair thin and help to direct the flow of energy in the body to where it is needed. Pain and disharmony occur in the body as the result of unbalanced distribution of Qi (or energy) in the meridian pathways.
Each session begins with a conversation about your health history, wellness goals, and relevant life circumstances, followed by a Traditional Chinese Medicine pulse and tongue reading, diagnosis and treatment plan custom designed for your constitution.
With years of experience as a teacher, healer and artist, Julie’s acupuncture treatments are unique in that they can include the use of guided relaxation or meditation, bodywork, reiki healing energy, flower essences, healing crystals, and dream images.
