Journey to healing

Acupuncture is an ancient healing art

It dates back to the 3rd century B.C. and is based on the theory that Qi (pronounced chee) regulates a person’s spiritual, emotional, mental and physical balance.

Acupuncture treatment

The foundation of health lies in the fact that everything is connected

I employ the Five-Element philosophy. It is based on nature and the principles of the five elements corresponding with each of the seasons. The Chinese observed the cycles of nature as reflected in these seasons and in the movement of all living things through all cycles of life.

“If someone wishes for good health, one must first ask oneself if he is ready to do away with the reasons for his illness. Only then is it possible to help him.” – Hippocrates

Our clients are our voice

“Since receiving acupuncture treatment I have noticed a general increase and balance of my internal energy. I am increasingly aware that this flow of energy assists me with decreasing my stress level and increases my ability to clarify the issues I may have brought with me to the treatment session. With this improved clarity and calm, which I gain from an acupuncture treatment, I have found that I am better able to manage my responsibilities as a parent, professional and life partner. In addition, I have an increase in physical energy that allows me to perform my general daily activities in a more effective, grounded manner.”

“Lesley brings tremendous insight and compassion into her treatment room. She has a deep understanding of nature and how we as people on this Earth can most ideally be intertwined within it. Her straight-forward, thought-provoking style is refreshing. There is not another practitioner that I would more strongly recommend to anyone who asked.”

“I’m always amazed at my own transformation after my treatments with Lesley. The beauty and depth of acupuncture treatments coupled with Lesley’s expertise and therapeutic guidance is a gift; for me it’s the gift of life. I leave the office both physically and emotionally strengthened. Lesley has taught me how to accept myself and how to truly live with faith, courage, and commitment. I am forever thankful for Lesley’s kindness and friendship.”

“Thank you so much, Lesley, for the great session the other night. It totally eliminated the migraine and helped tremendously with the TMJ. I have had my nightguard adjusted and am feeling much better. I might reschedule the next appt.”
