Anna sees acupuncture as a complete medicine. Being whole, and holistic, acupuncture is both a physical medicine, and an energy medicine that is able to mobilize the body’s own resources. Acupuncture treats pain, and regulates the underlying imbalances and dis-harmonies. Anna’s treatments are infused by more than two decades of experience of intensive yoga practice, meditation, energy healing, and mindfulness practices, and she brings a sense of, and warmth and openness to every session. Her greatest joy is to participate the healing journeys of her clients.
“I grew up surrounded by lots of beautiful expanses of nature. My time was mostly spent in the woods and meadows, playing and sometimes trying to find wild animals to silently observe. All this alone time in nature made me into a very introspective and contemplative person, and my experiences are still colored by the meditative practice that I developed. It was also during this time that I started to have what I later understood to be awakening experiences.”
“My world view has always been more towards holism because of this, and when I discovered eastern philosophy, it really resonated with me, and likewise when I first discovered Taoism, acupuncture and Chinese medicine, I immediately felt that this was something that made sense to me, because the whole human and our environment is taken into consideration. My own healing with acupuncture and herbs solidified for me, that it was something that I wanted to pursue as a career.”
My family operated an organic blackcurrant farm, and we also had honey bees. Reverence for living creatures big and small was the only way I was shown, and even the honey bees were adored for their work, plant based medicine was just a natural part of living, and all our foods were grown or harvested and treated with love.
Anna offers a wide range of services, including: Acupuncture, cupping therapy, mindfulness, and Daoist based counseling. She also prescribes herbal medicine.
Her experience ranges from working with individuals suffering from alcohol and chemical dependency, mental illness, low self-esteem, mood and anxiety disorders, and complex and un-diagnosed cases.
To our very core, we are wellness, stillness, and peace of mind and the key is to find that core.
