|Acupuncture services now being offered in Holyoke|
|Written by Chris Lee|
A new form of therapy and healing is now being offered one day a week in Holyoke.
Darcy Greenwald L.Ac. of Julesburg began offering her acupuncture services Tuesday, April 5 at Brandt Chiropractic in Holyoke.
Greenwald owns and operates Stillpoint Acupuncture and Wellness in Julesburg and will be in Holyoke on Tuesdays from 9 a.m.-6 p.m.
She opened her business in July of 2010 in Julesburg and has enjoyed the adventure so far.
Greenwald said the first question she usually receives is “Does it hurt?” She replies by saying, “contrary to most people’s fears, acupuncture is essentially painless, and is a wonderful healing modality that many millions take advantage of daily around the world.” The hairlike needles are quite different from the needles most Westerners are accustomed to in blood draws or immunizations, she added.
In addition to acupuncture, Greenwald will offer Chinese herbal medicine, nutritional counseling and related therapies.
She offers dietary counseling and will offer various dietary and nutritional supplements. In addition, she offers weight loss and detox programs.
Greenwald spent her childhood and young adult life overseas in Asia after her family moved from the United States when she was 5. She lived in South Korea, China, Taiwan and Hong Kong before returning to the U.S. at the age of 26.
She would love to visit Asia again if the right opportunity presents itself, however work and a 5-year-old daughter keep her pretty busy.
Greenwald graduated in 2006 from Colorado School of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Denver and has been in practice ever since.
She spent some time in California working with acupuncture teachers while continuing to study the craft. She then moved back to Colorado where she worked in Lafayette.
Since she already held a Colorado license, she decided to stay in the state instead of obtaining a Nebraska license and moving back to Lewellen, Neb., where her mother lives.
“Julesburg seemed like a nice and perfect situation for me,” Greenwald said.
Prior to completing her acupuncture program, Greenwald completed a Western herb program as well as an extensive two-year Chinese Herbal Medicine program.
She has also taught English as a Second Language and worked in preschools before beginning her current career.
For those who are unsure about the procedures, Greenwald is offering a free 30-minute consultation either by phone or in person both to address any questions or concerns, and to help determine whether Traditional Chinese Medicine can serve health and wellness goals.
“I’m excited to bring these services to Holyoke,” Greenwald said. “I like to bring in something new.”
