A Chat with Vim + Vita Integrative Acupuncture
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
In addition to acupuncture and herbal medicine, I also do corrective exercise with patients when necessary. I analyze posture and movement, assess muscle imbalances and prescribe exercises to correct them. This proactive approach helps prevent future injuries and pain.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I have worked in the health and fitness industry for 20 years and I wanted to take a more hands-on approach to helping people improve their lives and feel better. I think the body is an amazing thing and Chinese medicine truly helps it heal itself.
What do you love most about your job?
I love that I can help people feel better so quickly and with minimal side effects. What I’m doing with Chinese medicine gets at the root of the problem; it doesn’t just treat a symptom.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
When a patient comes to me after just one visit and reports that their pain is gone or their stomach isn’t as upset or they’re sleeping better, I know I’ve made a difference in their lives.
