Her touch is very healing

Laura Stauffer Parks provided acupuncture services for me regularly from February, 2010 through October, 2010. This was my first time experiencing acupuncture and the experience was life changing for me. I went to acupuncture in an effort to take better care of myself and as a result I was able to sleep better than I’ve slept in eight years. Since going to acupuncture I have been able to be less anxious, more present and more aware of what my body is trying to tell me. Overall I feel healthier and as a result I’m able to be a better Mom and wife. Laura’s calm, peaceful and positive presence enhanced the healing process that has been occurring in my body. She helped me to trust the process and to trust what my body is trying to tell me. Her example of being fully present helped me to be more present with my children. Laura has a lot of wisdom and intuition. Both of these qualities add to her ability to be an excellent acupuncturist.

Laura’s ways of preparing me for what was going to happen helped me to trust the acupuncture experience. The way she encouraged me to take a deep breath before inserting a needle helped me to be more mindful. The things that she talked about during the treatment were incredibly insightful and often had to do with what had been on my mind. She was always very respectful and observant about my comfort level. Her touch is very healing. I cannot express enough how gifted Laura Stauffer Parks is as a healer/ acupuncturist.

I am a changed person because of Laura

Laura Stauffer Parks asked that I write a letter about my experience with her at Tai Sophia. I’m not sure where to begin…I generally find myself saying to friends “she’s just amazing” and leaving it at that. I have been struggling through one of the most difficult years of my life and Laura has been an incredible healing force. I’m not sure how I would have made it through without her constant companionship as a healer. She was ever present to my needs and responded to them perfectly. She knew when to use her healing touch, whether it be a big warm hug or a gentle hand on my shoulder. Her voice and presence would sooth me immediately upon my arrival. Her gentle, intense eye contact let me know that I was being cared for and unique.

I think the most remarkable thing about Laura is when I was too tired or sick to see my own potential, Laura could. She held that vision of my best self and guided me to her. She could see where I needed to go and invoked her interpersonal skills as well as her awesome acupuncture knowledge to get me there. I am a changed person because of Laura and I am so very lucky the universe led me to her.

Laura has made me feel younger

I have always believed in alternative medicine, but Laura Stauffer Parks made me realize just how much we as people have lost over time and how I can get it back.

Laura has made me feel younger and given me the gift of how I used to see the world. Not the way I started to see things, I now have my wonder of things back and I really felt a positive shift in myself which I know helps me deal with my day-to-day objectives.

I just love Laura’s positive attitude and out-look on life it’s infectious.

This experience changed my life

Dearest Laura Stauffer Parks,

I am writing this per your request to describe my acupuncture experience with you. This experience changed my life.

Each of my treatments gave me something…some helped my deal with my stressful life better, some helped me realize my true potential and, in your words, my gifts.

As a trained psychotherapist who is living with Posttraumatic Stress Disorder, I have at times lost sight of how to help myself, and with your help I have regained much of this sight. I also have gained much of the self-confidence that has been hiding in my soul that I will need to start my private practice…which I plan to start after the beginning of the New Year. Perhaps the most amazing thing you have helped me with is that I have stopped smoking marijuana for the longest time in 5 years and this time I feel stronger in this achievement than I have ever felt before. For the first time in years I can talk with my patients and tell them that there is life after substance abuse, without feeling like a hypocrite.

I want to thank you Laura for the many things you have helped me with and have given to me…I very much appreciate your being part of my journey.

-T.
