How it works
Even though you may have a physical ailment, the emotional component is also addressed as we are an integrated being, not separate parts. A physical problem will not be in isolation from the emotional aspect, as pain, for example, especially chronic pain, releases stress hormones, these stress hormones affect your moods, sleep, digestion and general state of being. It is a multidimensional approach that helps address your issue on all levels for best results.
Francine also has special interest in treating people who may be stuck emotionally after a traumatic event - such as cancer diagnosis/treatment, car accidents, domestic violence, often these events, although they may have happened years ago, even in childhood or in-utero, or may have been overcome, as far as a cancer free diagnosis, the emotional body has not caught up, the stress of the event is still stored in the tissues of the body, if these are not released then they continue to burden the body and create dis-ease. Sometimes one acupuncture point will be enough to release some of that stored up emotion.
In Chinese Medicine, there is the understanding that we are not separate from our environment, that everything is connected, and if we have separation then we have death. Just as the Earth has the Seasons, the Elements, the day/night cycles, and moon cycles, so too does our body. It is Francine’s mission to bring more understanding and awareness to the healing capability when once connects to Self, their environment and their community.
