Analogy to Understand Acupuncture

The Garden
     Many people want to know what acupuncture is doing for them and how many treatments will it take. The Garden Analogy......(I'm not a bear with this!)
     When you come in for the first time, like a garden that has become neglected, your body has likely been harboring a problem that has been going on a for long time. So, first, we need to access the soil, where you've been living (in the shade or sun) and find what elements in your body that need to be restored. You share with me what you want your garden to look like - how you want to feel. Then, we make a plan that usually starts with weeding and building the soil - taking out the impediments to healthy blood and energy. This can take time! For those who like to pick out the weeds and build their soil between treatments - eat healthy, get good sleep, exercise, and lessen stress - the time to restoration will be faster.
      Acupuncture can provide cumulative blood and energy to your whole body - not just the area of concern. In the beginning, I often suggest that we meet 2 times a week for a week or two if it is feasible. This is to get the momentum of health moving. Then, you come once a week while you are able to hold the treatments and keep the weeds down. Eventually, you are able to maintain your health, and just need to come once a month or once a season for a tune-up - all depending on your particular situation.
     Best of all, you can meet me in person for a free consultation to see if acupuncture is right for you!
