Acupuncture Brings Balance to the Body and Promotes Healing Naturally
Acupuncture is a medication-free treatment that can provide lasting benefits. The proof of acupuncture’s effectiveness is in its longevity. According to Chinese Medicine, energy in our bodies flow through channels called meridians. This energy called Qi, pronounced as “chee”, can get blocked and out of balance, leading to illness. These blockages can be caused by external factors (such as cold, damp weather, physical trauma, etc.) or internal factors (such as stress, unhealthy diets, etc.).
Acupuncture needles are about the width of two to three strands of hair and are actually quite flexible. Often people are surprised how little they feel both at insertion and after they are in place. In fact, it is not uncommon for patients to become so relaxed, they fall asleep! It usually takes multiple treatments to see lasting results, depending on the patient and most usually notice a general relaxation after the treatment.
Cindy Tran – Licensed Acupuncturist
Cindy Tran graduated from UMBC in 2008 with her BS in biology and contemplated taking the next step to go to medical school. She decided that she was better suited to pursue Chinese medicine, as she had been raised with Chinese Medicine being the main approach to every illness and issue in her family. She had experienced Chinese Medicine throughout her childhood, though she never completely understood it.
Cindy attended Tai Sophia Institute (now known as Maryland University of Integrative Health) and there she was able to merge her childhood experiences with Acupuncture with a deep understanding and appreciation for the theory and the validity of Chinese medicine for patients with a variety of ailments and difficulties.
Cindy received her master’s degree in Acupuncture in 2013 and she is now a Doctor of Acupuncture candidate expected to finish in 2016. She promotes wellness in all of her patients by working with them to heal on the physical, mental, and spiritual levels. By working together with her patients, she is able to address the root cause for long-term benefits and facilitate healing her patient as a whole rather than one symptom at a time.
