5 Element Acupuncture & Intuitive Medicine In Bellevue & Seattle

Renée Benedict, EAMP

 

Many people turn to Acupuncture in an attempt to ease pain without having to take pharmaceutical pain medications such as NSAIDs and opioids. Why? Because Acupuncture eases pain without side affects. 

Pain can effect every aspect of your life. Whether it’s new or it’s been hanging around a while, pain can cause you to lose sleep at night and lose focus during the day. You have less energy as your body is working to compensate for the pain. You can become irritable and cranky at home and at work, which will effect job performance and your relationships. When your work life suffers, stress and anxiety is increased, and when relationships suffer, it can cause anxiety and depression. You can see how pain can have a cascading effect on your whole being.

Medications can help, of course, and you’ll need to deal with their side effects – which may cause further issues for you. But while you’re seeking help along the Western route of doctors and pain medications, why not try a traditional form of medicine that’s been around for 5,000 years? It’s effective, doesn’t have side effects, and as your pain subsides, you may find how much your whole life is improving.

When your body is healthy and strong, you can move more easily within your world. When your mind is healthy, you’re able to organize your thoughts and actions, and when your spirit is healthy, your’e happy & confident in your daily life. In order to be truly healthy, one’s body, mind and spirt need to have balance. Five Element East Asian Medicine assists in balancing your whole being, allowing you to live a more full and vital life.

I offer free consultations, evening appointments, and I have locations in Bellevue and Seattle, making it easier for you to get the care that you need. Schedule an appointment by clicking the Schedule Now button, or emailing or calling me. I look forward to assisting you in your journey to increased health & wellbeing.
