Spirit & Emotions


Sometimes we just feel off. This feeling might not come with physical pain, but you know something just isn’t right. You might have been medicated for this or have been told “it’s all in your head” and referred for therapy. Using Eastern Medicine, we will explore these feelings of “something isn’t right” and where they are in your body.

Exploring your emotions using your physical body can help locate where your energy/emotions/spirit is blocked or stuck. Together we can release that energy and allow the stagnation to release, move on, and let go. This opens you up to continued growth and transformation.

With spirit and emotional issues, 5 Element or TCM Acupuncture is typically what I use, including some body work. Whether it is with or without needles, the time spent treating has a way of helping people move forward from past issues and find a new sense of self.

Spirit and emotional issues tend not to be quick fixes, but I’m not the type of practitioner that forces my schedule onto you. I typically like to see people the following week to see how they responded to treatment, but after that I want to work with you to find an ideal schedule for your mind, spirit, and finances. Maybe you need every other week or longer to process the treatments or maybe that is all you can afford. The idea is to get you better, not stress you out more.

I first started to see Aaron and try acupuncture for the first time after I had been sick for several months with symptoms mainly of reflux and uncontrolled asthma. I felt like I was slowly getting better compared to where I was initially when I first got sick but also felt like there was an underlying condition keeping me from returning to full health. I had lost 35 pounds over the course of a few months trying to get my symptoms to resolve and I was continually frustrated and anxious and wanted nothing more than to be back to myself. I was also dealing with a lot of muscle tightness and tension in my back and neck and difficulty sleeping.

My initial experience with acupuncture was one of understanding the connection between mind and body. I really didn’t know too much about it. I had heard from other friends and family that they have had success with it. At this point I had been to several different doctors and specialists with really no true answers as to why I wasn’t returning to full health, just more medications to try and deal with the symptoms. After the first 2 sessions I definitely felt a change. I could feel there was changes going on with my body but it was almost like it was resisting moving forward. After my 3rd session is when I felt the greatest relief and really started to feel like myself again and enjoy the things I was missing and start to take on challenges at work and in my personal life with a renewed approach.

What Aaron has been able to provide me with since I started seeing him was first and foremost simple understanding. It is refreshing to be able to talk to someone and truly spend some time relating experiences and understanding how the simplest things could be triggering thoughts, emotions, or reactions within your body that could escalate and cause unneeded stress. I always knew stress is detrimental to your health. But its is amazing how quickly it can build as you go through everyday life and keep pushing it off subconsciously until it finally catches up with you and does damage.

I have made great strides over just a few sessions and I have Aaron to thank for his thoughtfulness and approach to total wellness.
