Happenings In The Hills - Acupuncture Adventure
Today’s happenings are actually yesterday’s outing to the best acupuncturist here in Rome, Jen with Tao Of Eve.
Jen is amazingly talented and always deepening her knowledge with study. She is caring and takes the time to listen to your concerns and (if you’re a nerd like me) she’ll even explain how the various methods work. Jen offers An array of services, as a licensed massage therapist, licensed acupuncturist, and a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), which includes herbalism and food as medicine.
She also has a powerful and relaxing infrared light system installed that you can enjoy while your acupuncture needles are doing their thing, further deepening the body’s own healing. She also has a newly installed e-stim (electrical stimulation) that she can use for particularly challenging points. Here a pic of me with the e-stim system hooked up. I hold a tremendous amount of tension in my jaw, which causes soreness. I relaxed so much with the e-stim system hooked up, that I actually fell asleep.
She also uses traditional glass globes for fire cupping. The suction from the cups helps promote increased blood circulation, helping to relieve pain, promote cell repair, and aid in regeneration.
The above picture is from one of the fire cupping sessions I had with her. Notice how the marks are darker toward the lateral edges of my back. This area is where the gallbladder meridian runs through, which is where I have the majority of my system imbalances. Pretty neat, huh?
Give her a try! You can see a list of all of her services and book an appointment at her website www.taoofeve143.com If you’re looking to treat yourself, I highly recommend her salt glow body scrub treatment. It is amazingly relaxing and will leave tour skin soft and glowing.
