Bluestem Acupuncture Clinic of Ks
Dr. Kimberley Vester-Couch, Acupuncturist, DiplOM, LAC, DOM, LMT
As an Oriental Medicine practitioner, I treat the cause and the physical expression of a disorder. A treatment plan is designed specifically for the patient based on the root cause of an illness or disorder and the current presentation of symptoms that collectively define their condition.
I bring to my practice extensive knowledge of muscular- skeletal interaction from my 20 years as a licensed Shiatsu therapist. In addition to Acupuncture, fire cupping, and moxabustion, I utilize Tiuna Anmo (syndrome specific acupressure) for palpatory diagnosis and as a treatment option.
In my experience when the patient is an active participant in improving their overall wellness, the potential for the body to restore balance and health is greatly improved. Patient education can include: Qigong exercises based on the patient’s specific treatment goals; Tiuna Anmo, self massage techniques that are syndrome specific; and Chinese Medical Diet designed to improve the patient’s overall constitution.
Traditional Chinese Medicine takes a preventive approach to health and wellness. Whether you suffer from aching joints in the winter, allergies that are worse in the spring, or emotional strain and/or stress, Acupuncture can make a difference.
