Acupuncturists in Tacoma

Nicole McCormick, Acupuncturist  in Tacoma
“The patients I enjoy working with tend to be people who are focused on getting better, and who are able to communicate with me in an open manner about what is helping them, and what's not. I am good at being grounded and holding space when patients are going through rough times, both physically and mentally. Because of this, I feel I am well suited to treat patients who have a combination of physiological and psychological complaints. I find any issue where the mind and body intersect fascinating, and this is what drew me to this medicine.

If the wrong gas is used then the engine wouldn't work. The body runs same way. The biggest energy source is food which we're taking. Therefore, he differentiated patient's body characteristics into 8 different categories. According to that diagnosis patient will be advised nutritional recommendation and will be treated by acupuncture/herbal formula. He has been respected and well-known in the community.

Acupuncture in Tacoma - 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. Tacoma 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.
