Before I began working with Emily I was struggling with my path in life... My health was in flux, leaving me feeling poorly most of the time. I believed it was my autoimmune condition that was the cause and I sought help… Books, medications, more books, doctors and specialists. One day I met with a caring practitioner who believed that the root of my suffering and autoimmunity could be PTSD… And recommended I meet with Emily for acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)...Overtime I began to realize that I wasn’t just here for physical healing, but I required soul work. Since that time, I have been more honestly myself than I ever have been!


When you have unresolved trauma and emotions…

You may find yourself asking, “will the struggle and pain ever stop?”

It’s the times when you experience tension in your low back, or your neck and shoulders and the pain just won’t go away.  

It keeps coming back.

And then, you notice when stress from your work, relationship, and finances increases, the pain gets worse…

Acupuncture can help!

I can help.

See, unresolved trauma and emotions may be impacting your ability to feel better, heal, and take steps forward.


Acupuncture at Aum Holistic Healing Arts

Are You an Ideal Client for Acupuncture with Emily?

More than one client has said over the years, something to the effect:

 “I’ve been to other acupuncturists.  But, acupuncture with you is different.”  

When choosing whether acupuncture is a good fit for you, it’s important to find a practitioner that you connect with.  

You might believe that acupuncture is just acupuncture.  And any practitioner you see will be a good fit.  

For example, choosing the person on your insurance provider listing that is closest to your home.

But, what about how they talk about your health and healing? 

Do they invite you into a conversation about the bigger picture of your life and wellbeing?  

Are they truly interested in your vision for your life and what you aspire toward?

Do they strive to understand the root of your struggles, pain, and stress?

Feedback from multiple clients helped me understand what I bring to the treatment room is very valuable.

To understand whether I am a good fit for your healing goals at this time, let’s connect!  

But first, see if one or more of these ring true for you:

  • You are committed to improving your health and well-being

  • You actively participate in your healing journey
  • You value being part of a team
  • You look at the big picture – and seek a holistic perspective
