In a session, an acupuncturist performs a thorough 15-minute examination to determine the patient’s individual ailments, then places fine needles in specific pressure points along the body. The 60-minute treatment is said to restore the balance of energy, or chi, and in turn treat a variety of issues ranging from stress and depression to back pain and arthritis.
To study Chinese medicine, James Rodowca went to the source. He studied at Guangzhou University in China to earn credentials that enhance his already stacked resumé—he also holds a bachelor’s degree in human biology and a master’s in Oriental medicine. His extensive studies inform his practice of these ancient arts at Acupuncture One, though he also gets some help from technology. Digital Meridian Imaging maps the body’s energy pathways, as well as the spots on the body where energy’s movement is blocked by external forces or by the heart’s annual street parade. With the insertion of thin acupuncture needles, James can unblock these passageways and help the body restore balance in order to alleviate such common ailments as allergies, stress, and depression. James also curates a stock of potent herbal supplements that complement his hands-on treatments to treat a slew of issues.
