At Carrie Durkee Acupuncture, acupuncture, an ancient form of Chinese medicine, is used to promote natural healing. The focus is on the whole body instead of solely on the presenting symptoms. Chinese Medicine recognizes there is a vital life force that flows through our bodies called qi (chi). When qi is free flowing there is health within the body. When qi is blocked or not moving, illness and disease are experienced. Through the insertion of thin, sterile needles qi can be brought into balance restoring physical, mental, and spiritual well being. Through acupuncture I hope to heal my patients and help them create new possibilities for life. Together we can create your best life possible!
