UPDATE 12/5/2020– Due to COVID-19 surges in the area, I have suspended practice for the time being. As soon as things take a turn for the better, I will reopen. This has been a difficult separation for all of us, but let’s all try to find the silver lining. I look forward to reconnecting as soon as possible! I am exploring online platforms for tai chi instruction- stay tuned!
Welcome to Wayfinder Wellness! We specialize in providing one-on-one as well as community acupuncture, therapeutic massage, body treatments, herbal medicine, movement and dietary education.
We believe that life is a journey back to ourselves. Everything that happens to us makes an imprint on the cells of our body, either enhancing or distorting our experience of life. By listening to and learning from nature and our bodies, we can intuitively find our way back to wholeness and health.
The roots of Acupuncture and East Asian medicine practice are nourished by the wisdom of Daoism, an ancient and beautiful philosophy stemming back to the 4th century BCE. Daosim (also spelled Taoism) emphasizes living in harmony with the Dao, or the Way.
Effortless action and understanding of the “three treasures” are at the core of Daoism. The three treasures that we are endowed with upon entry to this life are jing; sperm or eggs/ physical essence; qi, matter-energy, or life force including thoughts and emotions; and shen, the spirit that shines through the eyes.
By caring for and cultivating these three treasures, humans wake up to deeper truths that harmonize individuals with the outer world and uplift creation as a whole. When we neglect the careful cultivation of these gifts, suffering on small and large scales results.
Our aim in creating Wayfinder Wellness is to shine the light of knowledge and the wisdom of practice into the community, inspiring all who walk through our doors to see that life is beautiful and worth caring for. We must begin by caring for our own three treasures, and once we experience the joy of sincerely doing so, we cannot help but inspire others to do the same.
Thank you for opening your mind, body, and spirit to us! We look forward to a grand adventure of discovery, growth, health, and happiness. The stars to which you look for guidance are already within you. Let’s work together to bring out their brilliance and clear direction!
