Galina Vladi, Acupuncturist  in Anchorage
“I specialize in Japanese acupuncture, which is a gentle and effective alternative to TCM. In 17 years of my clinical experience I treated a wide variety of health problems with a high rate of success. In my Japanese acupuncture treatments I use Hara diagnosis and techniques of direct and indirect moxibustion and also elements of energy healing, Tuina and healing touch, and intuitive reading to achieve the best result possible. My work especially resonates with spiritually-oriented and/or energy aware people, those with with delicate constitution, needle sensitive or physically weak.

Acupuncture in Alaska (AK) - is it right for me?
Acupuncture is based on the concepts of oriental medicine or traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. Alaska (AK) acupuncturists are health care professionals who evaluate and treat the many conditions, aches and pains that respond to acupuncture.

Acupuncturists insert very fine acupuncture needles into a number of trigger points on your body. The purpose of the needles is to stimulate acupuncture points or meridians. The needles do not inject any substance into your body and are so fine as to be virtually impossible to feel. In some cases, acupuncture may be accompanied by electrical stimulation or the burning of moxa, a form of heat therapy. Or use acupressure, where physical pressure is applied by hand or elbow to trigger points with the aim of clearing blockages in these meridians.

'Accupuncture' and 'Accupuncturist' are common mis-spellings.
