Welcome to Stepping Stone Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine! We (Bethany and Marcie) are just tickled pink to be opening this practice and we look forward to providing excellent care to each and every one of you!
A little bit about the clinic and the name - why Stepping Stone? What does it mean? Well, we see each patient's optimal health as the primary goal of our treatments. But sometimes - commonly, actually - there can be quite a distance to go to get there. We understand this and want our patients to see their transformation as a process that we can go through together, as a team. Together, we can take steps along your path to good health - thus the name Stepping Stone. We want to be the path that you follow on your journey to wellness - and we will do our best to guide you and support you on your way.
What does this mean to you, the patient? It means that we will do our part to provide you with the absolute best care we can give during your acupuncture treatments and with the help of the herbs that we prescribe for you. But we believe that the most meaningful and lasting changes come when you do your homework (yes, homework, but just read on...). Not homework you are thinking of, like essays or algebra problems, but simple thing that you do on your own, outside of the treatment room, to prolong and enrich your treatments. Like foods and exercises to try, websites to visit, things to think about. Easy stuff, really, but stuff that really helps.
After all, we are here to help, heal, balance, relax, ease, and educate you. That's our job and we are so happy to be doing it!
We will be updating our blog regularly with information about acupuncture, herbs, research, Gwyneth Paltrow's cupping bruises (no, not really), seasonal recipes, exercise tips, etc. You name it (seriously, name it - let us know what you want to read about_ and we'll cover it!
We'll be back soon!
