Jodee Grandwilliams draws upon her expertise as a licensed acupuncturist and certified Chinese herbalist as she doles out holistic treatments and health education. Before ever reaching for a needle or root, she first goes over patients’ medical history to learn their overall state of health, then examines their tongues, and notes their pulse. With this information, she can draft a treatment protocol that might include acupuncture, a form of soft-tissue massage called tui na, cupping, or carefully selected herbs. Her dietary advice helps patients continue their treatment on their own, eating foods that keep energy levels in check, digestive woes at bay, and deep thoughts from escaping through ears.
