GUEST SPEAKER:

Rachel Smith, a licensed acupuncturist was our guest speaker today.  Rachel works here in East Aurora out of an office on Olean Road.

Acupuncture (not Rachel) originated in China some 3,000 years ago.  It is the oldest form of medical practice in the world.  Based on the philosophy of “Qi” which is the body’s vital source of energy acupuncturists seek to stimulate and enhance that energy flow to protect or cure the body of illness, pain or disease.  Using needles in various specific body locations, the body is stimulated to treat different stress areas, organs or body functions.

Used for both physical and emotional issues, the issues treated are wide and varied.  According to Rachel, treatment is safe for all ages and has zero negative side effects.  She noted that acupuncture works very well in conjunction with other forms of health care treatment.

To become “licensed” an acupuncturist must endure over 3,000 hours of study and practice whereas to be “certified” as one only 150 hours of course work is required.  Rachel noted that professional liability issues rarely, if ever, arise with a licensed acupuncturist as opposed to a certified one.  Always look for licensed rather than certified.

Thanks for the information Rachel.
