I too was a health success story after receiving acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine. After graduating from CU Boulder, I met a friend Kelly-who was studying Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine and she introduced me to my very first Acupuncture treatment. I was skeptical like most people, but this was because I didn't know anything about it. During my first treatment with Kelly, I felt a tingling sensation that started as soon as she inserted the first needle and I could feel this sensation shooting down my leg all the way to my third toe! I remember asking her what that sensation was? She just giggled and said it was "Qi." Then I asked what is Qi? She explained in the best possible way- "it is the life force and universal energy that flows through the earth, humans, plants and animals, it's even in the stones." At this moment I knew that I wanted to learn more about this ancient medicine.
Like I said before, I didn't think that this would help heal my irritable bowel syndrome but after 2 months of continuous weekly treatments and religiously taking my Chinese herbs, it worked! Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine healed my gut! How could a tiny filament stainless steel needle aid in my recovery? How could roots, bark, and leaves improve my gut? I was AWESTRUCK and so began my journey toward helping the rest of you achieve optimum health and wellness.
