Acupuncture is for Everybody
Acupuncture has been around for over 5,000 years, and written about for about 2,500 years. It has been applied in service of emperors, peasants, nobility and animals. It can always compliment any therapy a person is going through, whether chemo, medications for heart issues, ECT, or as a stand-alone therapy on its own. It can help recovery from surgery, help those coping with PTSD, anxiety, or help with general wellness.
About the Practitioner
Bethany is a descendent of farmers and people who view life as entwined with nature, and developed a strong connection with Nature as medicine. In her meandering search for a medical practice that she resonates with, she familiarized herself with very different worlds of healing. This journey ranged from studying the environment itself in Denver Botanic Gardens, working on over 40 studies of native plant species, to managing over 80 cancer research studies at the University of Colorado Cancer Center. Later she furthered her knowledge and became a registered nurse at the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at the Rocky Mountain Regional Trauma Center, and since then she has worked at many ICU’s across the country, including the Neurological ICU at Seattle’s premier stroke center, Swedish Hospital, Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center, and other areas. Bethany, an avid outdoor enthusiast, found healing in energetic modalities like Acupuncture to be extremely effective at not only alleviating musculoskeletal injuries, but also treating the spirit and psycho-emotional levels. A graduate of Maryland University of Integrative Health, Bethany loves alleviating pain, treating psycho-emotional health, and also assisting those who are balancing complex medical issues and who want to thrive.
