Robin’s path to a career in acupuncture has been circuitous to say the least, having had several previous careers.
However, an early interest in nutrition and healing and a fascination with the holistic concept of the “body/mind/spirit” led to the understanding that we can change our physical and mental states with our thoughts and beliefs, and that anger and resentment and stress can wreak havoc with our physical well-being and tip the scales toward illness or imbalance. Robin believes that if the body is intelligent enough to “create” a diseased state, that it is also intelligent enough to “un-create” it (with a little help!)
While working in her other careers, Robin studied various healing modalities: Touch for Health (also known as Kinesiology); Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and Ericksonian Hypnosis; and Theta Healing.
When life changes made it clear to her that the time had come for a transition away from all that her work life had been up until that point, Robin decided that it was time to choose a career that truly expressed her healing abilities and beliefs. After she saw her dog recover from an injury with the help of acupuncture, she chose acupuncture.
Robin is a graduate of the New England School of Acupuncture with a Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (MAOM) and is a Licensed Acupuncturist in the State of Massachusetts.
Her philosophy of healing is to assist her patient’s body to heal itself, first by addressing their most acute and immediate symptoms, and then to get at the underlying imbalances that are setting them up for those symptoms and conditions.
Imagine coming in for a pain in your shoulder or back, and after a few treatments finding that your insomnia and your stress levels are getting better, or your menstrual cramps are reduced, your workouts are more productive as your energy is increased and your recovery time has quickened, your skin looks clearer and more vibrant, or you just have an overall sense of better health.
These are the kinds of things that can happen for you when the needles do their magic and encourage your body to move back toward a state of harmony and balance.
