Whether you are looking for help with your physical health, or if you’re just so overwhelmed that your brain is on overload, The Nest is the place for you. Simply put, Acupuncture not only helps the body feel rejuvenated, but it helps to undo things that make the body and mind feel stressed out.
All Acupuncture is not created equal, however. Finding the right practitioners with the right knowledge and abilities can be the difference between a blasé treatment versus one that will help guide your body towards a path of real healing.
Having had many Acupuncture and other treatments in the past, I am no stranger to receiving Alternative Health Therapies, so I speak from experience. Jennifer Paschen and The Nest provides a Gold Standard for health improvement when it comes to Traditional Chinese Medicine therapies (TCM).
When you first walk into The Nest, you are surrounded by a sense of calm and quiet. Visually the office is rich with natural woods, Japanese Shoji Screens and bamboo floors. This is your first hint at healing Nirvana. If you’re new, you’ll have to fill out an extensive intake form. If you’re a regular, you’ll usually end up sitting in the inner waiting room where you can have a cup of water or herbal tea before your session. Once you’re in your room with your Acupunturist, you’ll go over your current status and give feedback from your last treatment.
Traditional Chinese Medicine relies on things like pulse taking (there are three very subtle pulses), as well as other analysis different from life is also an important factor, and you need to share that with your practitioner. For example, when I was moving after dealing with multiple major life stressors throughout the years, I was exhausted mentally, emotionally and physically. I got through the worst of it, especially move week, by doing an Acupuncture treatment a few days before the big day, and the day of the move. It might sound crazy to move and then head off to go to Acupuncture, but without it, I’d probably still be unpacking!
Jennifer was great to see during the entire time, since she integrates what was going on in my life to assess the best treatment for each session. Our health isn’t static, and so being able to share what was going on in my life really helped me get through it, while at the same time treating the primary conditions that I sought help with. I normally don’t sing praises about practitioners, but her commitment to providing professional services with warmth and grace are to be commended.
