Board-certified acupuncturist Shadye Peyvan begins the approximately 90-minute initial visit with a consultation, listening to health concerns to determine which of the body's pressure points to target. In a private chamber, she stimulates those areas with sterile needles as fine as human hair spun by Rumpelstiltskin, blocking pain signals and influencing the flow of energy. Discuss your symptoms and progress with Peyvan during a 30- to 60-minute follow-up visit to develop a holistic health-care plan.
Green Wellness Acupuncture
Licensed and board-certified oriental-medicine practitioner Shadye Peyvan considered the entire history of health care to select her profession and inform her practice at Green Wellness Acupuncture. She noticed that continuous study helped Western medicine become safe and effective, and that non-Western, holistic techniques had been similarly honed over several millennia, but had been overshadowed by modern technology's neon billboards. To revive them, she enrolled in South Baylo University, where she graduated with honors in oriental medicine, acupuncture, and herbology.
The tranquil office balances intuitive health care with the scientific aspects of acupuncture, which the World Health Organization reports is a clinically proven therapy for more than two dozen ailments, including rheumatoid arthritis and hay fever. Preliminary consultations empower patients to help guide their care while developing trust, a necessity given that Peyvan specializes in reproductive, emotional, and neurological disorders. Tea service uses an age-old ritual to erase anxiety of visiting the doctor or encountering the Mad Hatter.
