Some people say that of all the musical instruments, the sound of the cello is closest to the human voice. In both the cello and the human voice, there is a unique kind of resonance that can communicate deeply with the heart and soul.

Acupuncture Treatment Creates a Harmonic
Resonance of Health

Acupuncture practitioners are highly trained in using their sensory skills (seeing, listening, feeling) to detect balance or imbalance in many dimensions of human health. At the higher levels of acupuncture practice, acupuncture is very similar to tuning a musical instrument. The goal is to understand and improve your health in the context of your environment, relationships, emotional themes, lifestyle, and other factors. Putting these pieces together is what can make acupuncture treatment really work for you.

As in any form of medicine, an acupuncturist will gain insight into your condition through speaking with you and asking questions about your health history. In our practice, it is common for the practitioner, Eric Windsor, M.Ac., L.Ac., to speak with each patient for 20-30 minutes before providing any acupuncture treatment (or longer on the first session). Most appointments are an hour, and our shortest appointment is 40 minutes. Our patients often value these relaxed conversations about wellness and life concerns.

One primary way that an acupuncture practitioner will detect balance or imbalance is through feeling for qualities on the pulse, in twelve locations on both wrists. An experienced practitioner can use information from the pulse to craft a specific treatment plan which will help to give you a tune up in body, mind, and spirit.

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, these pulse locations correspond to energy channels that flow through the body, as well as the vital organs. These energy channels correspond with the functions of the organs as well as with many other aspects of human health, including emotional well-being and mental clarity.
