At Peace Instead of In Pieces

Lately we’ve had a huge surge in New Patients. Most of these patients are completely new to acupuncture, some are not. Some saw another acupuncturist years ago for a few visits perhaps. One of my takeaways as one of the 6 acupuncturists here at Cloud 9 from the past few weeks is a reminder of just how powerful it can be to have a practitioner provide deep listening.

 

What do I mean by “Deep Listening?”

 

Many of our patients recently have said their peace and then looked at me with a soft smile and said, “wow, I feel like I’m talking to my therapist, but I’m more relaxed. I feel so much better.” Usually followed by, “Does anyone else ever tell you that?”

 

The answer is Yes. Many times. The reason patients have this healing experience so often is because we set a supportive environment where patients can bring any of their concerns or life difficulties to the table to be tended to. As an acupuncturist, I was also given years of training as a Wellness Coach, giving mindset shifting tools to carefully craft and curate for each individual patient at hand.

 

That’s not to take away from a psychologist or therapist. We refer out to therapists all the time and we respect the amazing work they do. At the same time, we acknowledge that acupuncture brings healing to what the Ancient Chinese described as “Body/Mind/Spirit” and we tend our patients knowing that what ails the mind will show up in the body, and what ails the body will weigh heavily on the mind. We are here to tend you by looking at you holistically (and as a whole).

 

I look forward to seeing you on the table soon, so we can continue to help you Find Peace, and Bring Your (maybe not so broken?) Pieces back together.

Acupuncture for Allergies

It’s that time of year again! Spring is bursting with blooms of color and fragrance, dancing in the sunlight and giving us all a show of just how beautiful Mother Nature can be when she gets a chance to rest in Winter.

 

As human beings, we are a part of nature. We often forget we are not machines or robots, but rather, organic, beautiful expressions of nature. Just as we are getting into the full swing of Spring, many of us find ourselves reacting to pollen by way of Allergies.

Itching, Sneezing, Watery Eyes… Oh My! We know how you feel. As acupuncturists, many of us were led to study Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture because once upon a time we also had symptoms and conditions that were uncomfortable like Allergies, or Chronic Pain, for example.  Acupuncture can help by boosting your immune system with very specific acupuncture point protocols that have literally been tested over thousands of years to cultivate the most successful outcomes.

 

Each acupuncturist is trained thoroughly meeting requirements of Maryland state licensure that includes formal study concluding with a Masters degree in Acupuncture or Chinese Medicine after hundreds of hours of training over the course of 3+ years.

 

We look forward to sharing with you what acupuncture can do to boost your immune system and get rid of your allergies for good! We now have full coverage for hours at our White Marsh location: Monday through Saturday (closed Thursdays), 9am-7pm, and most of our hours in Timonium Monday through Saturday as early as 7am, and open as late as 8pm.
