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!
