how acupuncture can help you, & Monica's approach to healing
I became an acupuncturist because my own experiences with acupuncture taught me that acupuncture offers a real opportunity for people looking for gentle and effective care without the side effects of medication or the recovery time required by surgery.
I have three decades of experience in inhabiting a body with an autoimmune illness, and I have more than ten years of experience in receiving amazingly effective, empowering, and sometimes magical acupuncture treatments.
Since 2014, as a Licensed Acupuncturist, I've helped hundreds of people seeking to ease their discomfort and live in alignment with their values.
I specialize in working with women struggling with ongoing health issues such as digestive disorders, autoimmune conditions, and mental-emotional health concerns like anxiety and depression. I love helping people get their health back so that they can live a life that they love.
Do any of these situations sound familiar to you?
If yes, then you might benefit from receiving my care.
You have symptoms that pop up and don’t really go away.
You feel like your body is this other thing that you’re always trying to appease. Even when you work hard to take care of yourself, your body tends to complain.
Your struggle with emotions and with self-defeating thoughts.
Life doesn’t feel easy or fun. You feel stuck in a rut and are often lonely, depressed, isolated, or sad.
Maybe your health is “ok” but you’re unsure about where your health is heading.
You take pretty good care of yourself but old injuries or aches and pains are starting to edge in on your everyday life and stick around.
It’s a struggle to stay focused, and you’re easily overwhelmed.
You’ve been dealing with illness for so long that it’s just another thing to plan around. You often feel scattered and have lost a lot of heart in the process.
You tend to be tired and you feel like your health is holding you back.
You know that your body isn’t working as well as it could. You tend to feel drained and you want to have enough energy for the things and people you love.
I’ve helped people who:
*have been struggling with illness for years on end
*have mental or emotional health issues such as anxiety, depression, or bipolar disorder
*feel disconnected from their lives or their experiences
*struggle with GI and digestive disorders or with strange symptoms that come and go
*may not even have a diagnosis but have a nagging feeling that they could feel better than they do
I work mostly with women, and I work best with people who want to play an active role in their recovery. Good health begins at home.
I often find that the people I work with already have the answers internally but they may be afraid to commit to next steps or unsure about what those steps might be.
My experiences in Western and Eastern medicine, and my continued study of Japanese Soto Zen Buddhism, which began in 2006, taught me that so much unnecessary suffering comes from feeling isolated or misunderstood.
I know firsthand how isolating and confusing it can be to navigate the healthcare system, and how frustrating it is when you try prescribed treatments but don’t get the results you expect.
One of the commitments that makes my practice unique is that I only schedule one person at a time, rather than bouncing between multiple treatment rooms during your session. If you've been craving deep listening and individualized care, please consider contacting me to find out how I can help you heal.
