Discovering acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine

October 8, 2011 by admin

My first visit with Nini was an emotional life changing event. I had no idea what I was getting into. I just thought I was there to clear up a skin irritation. Little did I know this would be the beginning of a journey in discovering deeper into myself. After a few short questions and studying my face, tongue, and pulse, Nini was able to see into me and tell me specific facts and aspects about myself that were true. Interesting enough, I had never really talked about these things or addressed them before. I was unaware and she was able to  point out my blind spots to get to the core root of a problem, conflict, and disharmony. We are complex beings and our physical, spiritual, and emotional self create an entire universe inward and outward.

About 3 months ago a girlfriend of mine recommended I try acupuncture and herbs because I had been complaining about skin problems. You know the feeling of thinking you have tried everything, invested way too much money, and nothing will work? Well, that was me  so I was closed off to her recommendation at first, but when she shared her personal experience and the remarkable success she had with acupuncture, I figured it could maybe work for me too.

After visiting Nini, my new awareness was seeing my current reality and the compounding effects of 20 years of nightmares. One of my success coaches, Mr. David Byrd says: “Awareness leads to change.” I was sold on the method, when I heard a comforting voice say, “there are always solutions to the problem.” So true. It’s like a math equation. It may take some trials but you can plug in formulas and solve for x or y. What I love about Chinese medicine is its holistic approach to treatment. It’s not about isolating x or y, rather it’s about finding the relationship between the two. It’s about preventive rather than reactive. It’s about restoring harmony and function in the body. I also found out that problems are great opportunities for growth!  Over the course of our treatment sessions and daily herbs, my body responded very well. I felt warmer in temperature, calmer heart, and overall stronger and more energized. I also regained my will power and determination!  After 2 months of acupuncture and herbs, the painful nightmares are gone, I have gorgeous, radiant skin, and I feel the healthiest and strongest I have been for a while.

Healing is an ongoing process. Emotions, events, and environment effect the body and can manifest into disharmonies and ailments.  I share my story for anyone that can relate and to show there are great alternatives to western medicine and pharmaceutical drugs. Acupuncture and Chinese medicine can be powerful proactive tools to heal and restore balance.
