This Spring Vital Bloom Wellness welcomes a new team member: Registered Acupuncturist Michelle Schuster. Michelle will be in clinic on Monday and Thursday evenings. We have 5 Questions for Michelle in this post.
What was your reason for becoming an Acupuncturist?
Michelle: I've been licensed since 2015 as a Reg. Acupuncturist. It started off with a way to deal with personal health issues that western medicine could not resolve; but has branched out into helping family and the community as a whole.
What is one area you like to focus on and why?
Michelle: I love to focus on Cosmetic Acupuncture, as it is a great alternative to some of the chemical procedures that we don't yet know the long term results of. Also, it is a good introduction to acupuncture when people aren't sure of needles. As an added benefit they get to see health issues other than just wrinkles also disappear.
What is one thing Acupuncture can help with that you wish more people knew about?
Michelle: Digestive issues, particularly acid reflux. I've had patients go off of TUMS and Acid inhibitors after just a few treatments.
What has been your favourite post-grad training that you've taken in recent years?
Michelle: Learning the Mei Zen Cosmetic Acupuncture method really opened up my eyes about what was possible and the lasting effects that can be achieved without injectables.
What is one piece of advice that you give someone coming in for the first treatment?
Michelle: Cosmetic Acupuncture is like exercise, it takes a few sessions to see true results but after you are glad you did it, and wonder why more people don't do this.
