Acupuncture: Our team approach
By Stacy Dunn, Acupuncture Director
If you’ve seen multiple acupuncturists, you know that techniques
among practitioners can vary greatly. But why is there so much variation
and what effect does that have on your treatment?
Acupuncture enjoys a rich tradition, with a history spanning several thousand
years. During this time acupuncture has spread geographically, techniques
have evolved, and different acupuncture styles have emerged including
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), Classical Chinese Medicine (CCM),
Japanese Acupuncture, Five Element Acupuncture, Auricular Acupuncture,
and Balance Method Acupuncture.
At Pulling Down the Moon our acupuncture team is diverse and our acupuncturists
use a combination of these styles and techniques. While point selection
and needling style may vary slightly between practitioners, they each
share the same level of clinical ability and success. Each practitioner
draws upon their own unique skill set developed through their education,
clinical experience, and mentorships.
We embrace this diversity at Pulling Down the Moon because it exposes our
patients to an even broader skill set, bringing a breadth of experience
and knowledge that cannot be experienced from one single practitioner.
Our acupuncturists are highly educated with extensive experience and skill
in the field of reproductive acupuncture. And they are truly passionate
about helping our patients achieve healthy, happy, and successful pregnancies.
We encourage you to take full advantage of this incredibly talented team.
Try scheduling with multiple practitioners and embrace all they have to offer!
