The philosophy of our practice is this…
At Juneau Family Acupuncture, we believe that the body is wise and fully capable of healing. We believe that our symptoms are not enemies to be destroyed, but signals from our body that call us to action. Our symptoms call us to pay full attention to all aspects of our life- body, mind and spirit. In this way, our symptoms are our teachers and our call to action.
What are our core principles?
-We believe in what we do. We believe in what we do because we see it work. We see patients overcome conditions that they never thought they would. We see patients learn to live life more resiliently. We see patients use the mind-body practices we teach to connect with their body’s wisdom and navigate their life with more ease. Natural medicine is not an inferior system of medicine. It is not slower or weaker than traditional Western medicine. In fact, because it works with your body’s natural processes and rhythms, acupuncture, herbal medicine, and mind-body practices enable your body’s natural healing mechanisms to reawaken. The results of that reawakening speak for themselves.
-We focus on results. We believe that your body is very wise. We believe in the natural healing wisdom of your body. We know that we do not need to over prescribe supplements, herbs or acupuncture treatments in order to reawaken the natural healing system that is innate within your body. Rather, we carefully and considerately develop a precise, targeted treatment plan based upon your main concerns in order to reawaken your body’s natural healing wisdom.
-We provide tools to foster wise living for the generations yet to come. The treatment you receive and the wellness skills you learn will not only impact your life. Are you a mother or a father? A brother or a sister? Are you a friend or a member of our community? If so, the impact of the positive changes you make will be felt by those around you. You will leave our practice with a set of easy to use mind-body practices that you can teach to those you care for, ensuring that the future generations understand how wise their own bodies are.
-We want to help as many people as possible. Once we have helped you achieve your treatment goals and assisted you with learning the wellness skills that make everyday balance and presence possible, you are not required to come in for ongoing maintenance visits at our clinic unless you choose to.
While many providers require routine or monthly maintenance visits, we do not. We trust that you will continue to use the wellness skills we have taught you to navigate the world with ease rather than disease. However, if you hit any bumps in the road, we are here to help you.
In fact, many of our patients enjoy coming in for periodic “tune ups” as they find they feel recharged and renewed after an acupuncture session or a round of herbal medicine support.
-We believe in honesty and integrity. Having been patients ourselves, we know what it is like to be on the other end of the healing process. We will only ever recommend what is necessary- never more, never less. We will always treat you with the respect you deserve while doing our best to help you meet your health and wellness goals. In every interaction, whether it be with patients, partners, referring clinics, or our suppliers, we strive to maintain complete transparency and integrity.
