Over the period of years that I have been in practice, my experience and knowledge have deepened and my style has evolved into what I now call 'Extraordinary Acupuncture', so called because the majority of my work involves working with the 'Extraordinary Vessels' of acupuncture practice.

Using acupuncture to open the Extraordinary Vessels provides the opportunity for each patient to become grounded in the source of their being once more, connected with themselves and to the world around them and with the tools available to move through any challenges with greater awareness and peace. In almost every treatment session I will open at least one of the Extraordinary Vessels, depending on what presents and the readings from your pulse and tongue. Life is an extraordinary adventure, fraught with challenges, difficulties, emotional turbulence and moments of peace and enlightenment. I consider it my role in life to support you in this extraordinary journey, provide a space of holding and nurturing, help you address any imbalances that may be compromising you or holding you back and assist you in reaching your full potential so that you may evolve and grow into the star that you are.

The (Eight) Extraordinary Vessels represent the deepest level of energetic structuring and are considered to relate to the evolution of consciousness - the deep, constitutional aspects of being that have historically been associated with spiritual practices and personal development on all levels.  Within the framework of Chinese Medicine, there are 12 Primary Channels that correspond with the Internal Organs (i.e. Heart, Lung, Liver, Stomach Meridians etc.) and relate to everyday function; the Eight Extraordinary Vessels are the underlying reservoirs for these primary channels and promote each individual's balance and homeostasis during 'extraordinary' times. They are considered by many to be the 'Initiatic Gates' and become active during times of transition and transformation, providing reserves of energy and insight to aid in the recovery from the challenging times of our lives and enable us to grow and evolve as individuals.

Should you wish to find out whether extraordinary acupuncture is appropriate for you, a free (20-30 minute) appointment can be arranged to discuss your needs and answer any questions you may have.  Please contact Stephanie by telephone, text or email to arrange your appointment.
