welcomenoteI believe we were created to experience profound joy, vibrant health, radiant vitality, inner peace, and abundance in all things.  That may seem hopefully optimistic and undoubtedly unrealistic to those of you suffering with physical and emotional health problems.  But, consider the alternative… to believe that we were meant to suffer and feel miserable, and just “deal with it” until we die?  Not me!  Not you!

In my early 20’s, I was suffering with debilitating migraine headaches and I felt like life was a struggle at best.  I was in constant pain, frustrated with my career, in a bad relationship, and quite unhappy.  The pain medications only treated the symptoms, but did nothing to stop the migraines from returning.  Taking a pill just wasn’t enough, so I began searching for a better way.

In 1997, a friend introduced me to Classical Homeopathic medicine and I discovered acupuncture…  what a year!  I began receiving acupuncture treatments, and after a few months, my migraines were gone and I felt better in so many ways.  My treatment included Neuro-Emotional Technique (NET).  This amazing technique really helped me to eliminate the underlying emotional blocks that were contributing to my migraines and my unhappiness.  I began to view the body as more than physical; I started to see it as an inseparable whole; mind, body and spirit.  I was learning through my own experience that all components had to be in balance and in good working order for me to truly feel well.

Because this medicine changed my life, I knew it could work for others, too.  I deeply wanted to help people overcome their physical and/or emotional health challenges and experience greater joy and freedom in their lives.  So, in 2003, I left my Masters studies in Psychology and my career in mental health to become an Acupuncture Physician.

I founded Indian River Acupuncture in the fall of 2006, and opened the doors to our first office in January, 2007.  Over the years, we have grown exponentially and have assembled the finest team of compassionate, knowledgeable, and highly-skilled practitioners devoted to helping their patients achieve optimal health and wellbeing.

For all our patients, we hold the highest and best vision for healing, even when it may seem impossible.  We have nothing to lose and everything to gain by aiming for optimal health.  No matter your health concern, we promise to do our best to help you feel better.  By working together, we can create a healthier, happier you… naturally!
