Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Talk Series

The talks are 30 minutes long with question & answer time.

Thursday nights at 6:30 for five weeks

Dec. 6 Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine for Stress Reduction: Did you know that regular acupuncture treatments help the body adapt more readily to stressful situations? Come explore how the body responds to stress, and how acupuncture resets the nervous system for homeostatic balance, calms the spirit, and helps reduce the symptoms of PTSD.

Dec. 13 Moxibustion for Health at Home: Moxibustion is the ancient art of burning the prepared herb moxa, known also as Artemesia vulgaris, or mugwort, to reduce pain made worse with cold and damp, to help strengthen the bodies response to illness, to warm an area of the body, and to promote the flow of qi and blood to create healing. Come learn about how moxa can be used at home to help with cold hands and feet, arthritis, and promote health and longevity.

Dec. 20 Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine for Immune Support: Acupuncture is a phenomenal treatment to help keep immunity strong, and to fight off a cold or flu in the early stages. Frequently my clients who feel “they are coming down with something” have a much reduced length of illness, or fight the cold off entirely with acupuncture. Chinese herbal medicine has been developed over thousands of years to treat the cold and flu as well as to strengthen the bodies ability to fight off illness. Come learn about the benefits of acupuncture during the winter cold season, and how Chinese medicine is beneficial in prevention and healing.

Ducharme is a licensed acupuncturist in the state of VT, L.Ac; and has a Masters degree in Oriental Medicine, MAOM, and is a graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing (Brennan Healing Science Practitioner, BHSP). She believes passionately in the body’s innate ability to heal itself and restore balance.
