I have a new space to practice acupuncture: a small sanctuary in the heart of the laid back Del Ray district in Alexandria, Virginia. Would you like to feel as relaxed as the woman in the photo might appear? My focus this season is to reduce unhealthy stress in my patients. Whether boosting the immune system, relieving pain or a host of other issues where acupuncture can help, allowing the body to relax facilitates the healing process.
In our session we will explore your health concerns, medical history, and lifestyle habits in order to create a unique treatment plan based on Chinese medical principles and experience. Our session will include acupuncture, tuina (Chinese massage), and most likely some gua sha. There will be enough time for your body/mind to get into a parasympathetic state (rest and digest). This enables your systems to recalibrate much easier without cortisol (the stress hormone) surging throughout the blood, You will leave feeling calmer, with your mind clearer and perhaps just as relaxed as Kim Nye, whom I photographed at the shore.
A note to my past patients in New York City and Connecticut: If you are in the DC metro area, consider coming in for a treatment. I would love to see you.
