River City Wellness Brings Acupuncture and Other Holistic Health Treatments to the Louisville, Kentucky-Area
November 30, 2018 (PRLEAP.COM) Health NewsLouisville, KY. Nov. 30, 2018. River City Wellness offers Louisville, Kentucky-area residents holistic health treatment options to reduce pain and boost immunity. These services include the scope of Oriental Medicine: acupuncture, cupping, moxabustion, herbal therapy and more. One benefit of these holistic treatments is that they are typically used in conjunction with traditional Western medical approaches. Additionally, they have few, if any side effects.
Acupuncture is becoming a more common health care option for many Americans as an increasing number of scientific studies provide evidence of its benefits. Acupuncture has been shown to reduce pain, nausea, anxiety and fatigue for many people. It is also linked to heightened immunity, improved sleep, and overall well-being. The World Health Organization (WHO) now endorses treating 31 different conditions with acupuncture.
Lindsay Matthews, the acupuncturist at River City Wellness, has over a decade of experience. As a licensed acupuncturist with a Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Oregon College of Oriental Medicine, Lindsay has successfully worked with hundreds of patients, completing thousands of hours of training and clinical experience. Lindsay's experience also includes the completion of clinical studies in Nan Jing, China. She is nationally certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and is State certified in Kentucky. Her ongoing education includes work towards the Certificate Program of Advanced Japanese Acupuncture Techniques studying under Master Kiiko Matsumoto.
Describing her approach to care, Lindsay explains, "Acupuncture is extremely effective as a result of the goal as a health care practitioner to facilitate health and wellbeing for my patients physically, emotionally and mentally. I advocate health through education of the body, and how our habits affect us, by bridging the gap between the Eastern and Western medical perspectives. I always knew that I was meant to help others, and it is with deep gratitude that I have found the healing arts of Chinese and Japanese medicine."
Some of the common health conditions treated at River City Wellness include: musculoskeletal pain such as common sports injuries and back tension, respiratory issues including allergies and cough, gastrointestinal problems, headaches and migraines, and stress-related problems. However, the list does not end there.
