As head of The Healing Blossom Acupuncture & Wellness, licensed acupuncturist Katie Hamilton treats bodies beleaguered by stress, depression, and pain with an array of healing services. She conducts an initial consultation on each patient's first visit to identify concerns such as obesity or chronic ticklishness and help tailor the treatment. The healing experience may include a healing amalgamation of acupuncture in tandem with moxibustion and other Chinese herbal therapies, and qi gong and reiki influences also seep into sessions when necessary. The acupuncturist’s gentle approach soothes those who might be sensitive to needles or have recurring dreams that they are Mylar balloons. Initial visits typically take 90 minutes for both the consultation and treatment, and subsequent treatments last approximately an hour.
Kyle Chapin, Evolutional Healing's chief acupuncturist, employs dexterity developed through martial arts training to correct energy imbalances, restoring mental harmony and alleviating such ailments as allergies, sleeping disorders, and headaches. During an initial consultation, he meets privately with clients to discuss their health history and treatment goals before guiding them to the community treatment room to lounge among fellow relaxers. As clients sit comfortably in or hover slightly above zero-gravity recliners, Kyle places hair-thin needles in precise points on the arms, legs, and head to direct chi into its proper channels. Melissa Burdeos—a massage therapist with more than 13 years of experience, including a stint at the five-star Sea Island Resort in Georgia—customizes ache-easing sessions to each client's individual needs. Her treatments draw on a modality palette that includes connective-tissue-focused structural bodywork, trigger point therapy, and a modified form of Shiatsu she developed herself. The varied strokes combine to promote deep relaxation, boost blood oxygen levels, and release endorphins, the brain's natural painkillers, helping to alleviate sprains of the medulla oblongata.
James Whittle gleaned extensive knowledge of acupuncture and holistic health care from his studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Seattle's Bastyr University, and the Shanghai University of Traditional Chinese Medicine as well as during an eight-month stint working alongside doctors in Chinese hospitals. The acupuncturist currently leads a staff of dedicated well-wishers and emotionally fulfilled pincushions, helping relieve patients' pain with such contemporary and non-Western treatments as evidence-based acupuncture, massage therapy, and herbal medicine. Taking a holistic view of each guest's well-being, Blue Ridge Acupuncture Clinic also proffers lifestyle and nutritional counseling to help with weight loss and healthy eating while emphasizing the importance of prevention in maintaining well-balanced, pain-free physical and mental health.
