A Few Words About Lone (Lo-na)
Registered Acupuncturist practising Classical Chinese Medicine and Japanese style acupuncture
Practising since 2008, I have an independent family practice, treating women, men and children of all ages. I believe in and practice integrated healthcare, and cooperate with and refer to medical doctors, midwives, doulas, chiropractors, osteopaths, rolfers, massage therapists, naturopaths, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and counsellors. I graduated from the Canadian College of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Victoria in 2008 and have a BSc in Psychology.
I’m here to help.
Gaining awareness and insight into who we are as a human being and the nature of our suffering (whether physical, mental, emotional or spiritual), opens up opportunity to transform how we are, how we think, how we feel and how we find our place within ourselves, our close relationships, in our community and in the bigger world. In my work, I support the arising of awareness and insight out of dis-ease, through how I listen to and talk with my clients, and the treatments they receive.
There are many benefits to Chinese Medicine & Acupuncture
Chinese Medicine involves careful and detailed questioning of a person’s history and the symptoms, observing the appearance of their tongue, feeling the quality of their pulses, and assessing the feel of their abdomen when palpated. Chinese Medicine makes it possible to diagnose people as individuals, rather than as a disease label. This allows for individualized treatment based on an individualized diagnosis.
Acupuncture, a treatment in Chinese Medicine, is effective in regulating and balancing the network of energetic pathways, called meridians, that connect the surface of your body to your internal organs. In health, Qi, blood and fluids are abundant and flow smoothly through these meridians. When the flow is improper, obstructed or weak, physiological functions and processes can become impaired, impacting the body, mind, heart and spirit.
