TCM ~ Ancient Chinese Wisdom

Many people have asked me “what do you do to keep yourself healthy?”  I just turned 59 and I feel 29 – however looking that age is questionable!  Of course I eat carefully… picky, picky, picky!  I’m a label reader – no GMO’s, gluten, soy or processed crap!  I keep busy – gardening, yoga and qigong classes. During the winter months I plan on starting Pilates classes at The Pilates Studio in Hadley. I figure I can also do my shopping at Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods when I’m in Hadley.  Then there’s massage usually every 2-3 weeks plus reiki, detox & galvanic sessions.  Besides my spiritual work, out of everything I do, I have found ACUPUNCTURE to be the most profoundly healing.  Just a few examples… One day I woke up with a stiff neck.  I went to my yoga class then got a massage but it was only slightly better afterwards.  Lucky for me Terry came in later that day.  I saw her in the acupuncture clinic and she put the tiny needles around the area that was stiff and the last needle was put into my opposite ankle and I felt my neck tension release instantly.  Whoa – I was flabbergasted!  Just recently I tripped and feel over my dog’s runner – smack on my face.  I didn’t feel anything at first so I continued to garden and later that night when I was ready to lay down my back went into spasm.  I used magnesium oil with Helichrysum and Trauma Liniment on my lower back so I could at least get to sleep.  I woke with no pain but it still felt on the verge of another spasm.  I’ve learned that if I have a problem I address it immediately!  Fortunately, Terry came in that day and I felt I needed a private session with her to relieve the muscular tension before it went into spasm again.  She put lots of needles on the front side of me then half way thru she had me turn over so she could put needles along with the heat lamp on the back side.  To finish the session she topped me off with cupping on my back.  That treatment was amazing – my back was totally relaxed with no signs of spasm.   ” I totally recommend ACUPUNCTURE  especially with a highly skilled practitioner such as Terry Tangredi.” ~ Debee Boulanger

Terry Tangredi, Lic Ac. treats a multitude of issues:

Are you or some one you care about suffering with chronic pain?  Is pain effecting your quality of life, your relationships, or your ability to do things that are important to you? Sciatica, low back pain, neck or shoulder pain? Knee pain or plantar fasciitis? These are some of the types of pain I treat effectively every day with acupuncture.

Now I have heard how people don’t like needles but I want you to know the needles I use are very delicate, only the size of two or three hairs, and I always use the minimum needed to help the person I’m treating. The sensation of the needles are generally minimal as well, a small prick like a mosquito bite, of a little zing as the energy is contacted.  A small price to pay for a large benefit of relief from pain.

In addition to pain, acupuncture is effective for treating digestive problems, insomnia, headaches, and women’s issues such as PMS, painful periods, infertility and menopausal symptoms.

Acupuncture is also very cost effective.  In most cases people feel better after 2 – 3 treatments, some even after one treatment!  There’s both availability for private appointments and a group clinic for those who are on a budget, I offer affordable $30 treatments at the clinic.  How does it get any better than that?
