Imagine you're headed to a party, when BOOM! a car slams into the back of you. You pull over, survey the damage, cancel plans.. accidents cause traffic, required repairs, and are: time consuming, painful, scary & frustrating! I imagine acupuncture works similarly in my body-when energy moves through me (car on the road) it gets blocked (the accident) by unresolved emotions, stress, injury (other car) and I get stuck in a rut, tired, sick, or in pain (car damage). Cindi (the best) is the specialist (mechanic) that I prefer to see. She uses acupuncture (repairs) to help me heal...At 27 years old I had broken down and unlike a car, there aren't body rentals. Symptoms-hip & body pain, genital inflammation, weak immune, exhaustion, anxiety, no menstrual cycle, etc..were dragging me down. Diagnosed w/ FIBROMYALGIA (acupuncture's GREAT if you have it too) my Doctor prescribed helpful medicine, however, I've found holistic options offer: health + hope + healing on multiple levels. Recommended to me, I tried Acupunture & Wellness Center. It's approach is impressive-offering diet info, vitamins, resources (including the most amazing therapist) and a plan (of action).\r
I believe I experienced an awakening: a deep spiritual-emotional connection between myself and this healing practice/practitioner. I thank Cindi for my awakening, as she (insightful + direct) encouraged me to become aware & heal from the inside out. And I did! Acupunture awoke my soul. At 27 years young I discovered, nurtured, and revitalized my mind, body, + soul, and I'm so grateful! My individual experience was personal & profound-transforming my view of the world and perception myself. \r
As a child I disassociated during trauma, so I had very little memory of my past, good or bad (similar to a person with amnesia). It was through acupuncture that I retrieved & processed memories, felt emotions, and let go of those memories that were too scary to face as a child. I gained clarity and an (adult) understanding of my life experiences...it was relaxing, and energizing. For me, acupuncture's promoted-logical thinking (as opposed to hormonally charged, irrational thought), eased-PMS, and digestive troubles (aided by supplements), returned & regulated-menstrual cycle, opened-creative energies & self expression, corrected-eyesight, shocking my eye doctor (it's very rare for eyesight to get better w/ age). Cindi gave me courage to trust the process-to let go and let heal. Bravo Cindi!
