Promoting Health and Wellness
We are passionate about encouraging patients to listen to the whispers and wisdom of their own body, and participate in their healing process. Our patients arrive at our clinic with a variety of concerns, including but not limited to back pain, headaches, IBS and constipation, insomnia, menopausal syndrome, anxiety, depression and a need for support during cancer treatments. We offer safe, reliable, individualized treatments using acupuncture, herbal medicine, soft tissue massage, food therapy, hypnotherapy, meditation, Qi Gong and aromatherapy to stimulate the body’s own healing ability as we support the person’s healing transition.
Touchstone Acupuncture is dedicated to providing natural, gentle therapies to alleviate pain, resolve symptoms, and create a pathway for individuals to follow in their own recovery of health. We endorse coordinated care with our colleagues in the health professions, and maintain ongoing referrals to support our patient population.
The Touchstone Triskele
The spiral and the triple spiral are among the oldest spiritual symbols created by humans. The triskele is a triple spiral with equally spaced arms or legs. They are widely regarded as one of the oldest Irish symbols, appearing on Newgrange kerbstones dating to 3200 BC.
Triskeles feature prominently in ancient and modern Celtic art, evoking the interpretation of the three realms of material existence: earth, water, and sky and the corresponding interconnections. The symbol is also thought to represent the three worlds: spiritual, physical, and celestial, as well as the connection between Heaven, Earth and Man.
The triskele represents the eternal cycles of Life, and reminds us that, to every season, there is a purpose. Blending the Celtic view of Life cycles with Traditional Chinese Medicine and the wisdom of the Tao allows us to support the health and wellness of the body, mind and spirit for every patient we encounter.
