What to expect from your Virtual Visit
Chinese Medicine defines acupuncture points as caves that we choose to enter for meditation. The ways in which we are able to enter these caves is not limited to acupuncture needles alone. Intention can bring us into the cave of health and healing. Intention itself is the medicine that carries us across the threshold of habitual life busyness and into our sacred and ever-renewing body. In our sessions, we will explore different ways in which you can intentionally come back home to your body, and to understand what is needed for you to experience your highest aspiration of Vitality and Health.
To achieve Health and Vitality, we will call upon one or more of the Four Pillars of Chinese Medicine:
Self-Cultivation: A deep inquiry into the ways in which your True Self shows and reveals itself in your daily experience of life.
Qi Gong, or Meditative Movements, that allow you to connect deeply with your Essence, and the Essential Nature of all beings that surround you.
Acupuncture Points: Caves of Awareness populated by mindfulness bells that remind you of what is Real and True at the very core of your Being.
Herbal Medicine and Nutrition: Powerful Allies that will inform you of adjustments that you may need to make in order to feel Nourished and be of Nourishment.
How to prepare for your Virtual Visit
Our Virtual Visit will take place via a video though Zoom or through phone, if you prefer. For our video-visit, I will email you an internet link that you will click, and voilà, you will enter the “treatment room”. The Zoom video-conference is free, all you need to do is download the app on your smartphone and or computer.
~ Create a peaceful and relaxing environment for our one hour “spa”. Choose the elements that will help you feel comfortable and safe in your own space. Here are some ideas:
~ Make yourself at home in your own house. If you live with others, let them know in advance that you will be unavailable for an hour or so. Make your needs clear, even to your pets(!) if you don’t want them in your space at the time of your visit.
~ If it is night time, light some candles or lower the electric lights. If we meet during the day, choose a cozy spot, preferably indoors. Have blankets and/or an exercise mat within reach.
~ Block off distractions as much as possible.
~ Take a 20 minute bath in Epsom salt before our visit. You can add a few drops of Lavender or Ylang Ylang essential oil to the water.
~ Set your phone to “do not disturb” mode, or turn your phone off if you are on your computer.
~ Try to use good quality earphones or speakers to minimize static and improve the quality of your experience.
~ Make a list of the main points that you would like to cover during our time together. E mail me with the latest lab exams if pertinent to the condition(s) that you would like to talk about.
~ If you are a new patient, please fill out these forms so I can get a glimpse of your health history and your needs before our virtual visit. This will allow for a better use of our time together.
Looking forward to meeting with you soon!
