Acupuncture and Psychotherapy can go hand in hand, yang and yin respectively. Both explore the subtle changes in our energy. Sometimes I will incorporate them both in a session. Together they facilitate the awakening and balancing of the physical self and the mental/emotional self. Through this work personal growth can be accelerated and physical wellness supported to bring about sustained change for a more healthful whole being.
Each therapy can bring greater balance to the whole with the two aspects containing a little of the other for balance. A Gestalt, if you will, emerges more balanced, more whole and evolving. Treatment is only a method to facilitate these processes of evolution, balance and healing. I offer both acupuncture and psychotherapy in combination or as separate therapies, a decision we would make at the time of your initial intake and evaluation.
