Acupuncture can be extremely helpful in easing a loved one’s passing. I have also found that it is most helpful to treat the family as well. I do have a lot of experience with this. My specialty in Portland was Geriatrics. I love my little old people!
Acupuncture is incredible at helping people process and deal with grief. Many do not know this. Each person deals with grief their own way- for some, it is one of the most difficult and lonely journeys to take. But I’m here to help. Unfortunately in our culture, we don’t like to talk about death or speak openly about loved ones who have passed on- because it makes others uncomfortable. I believe that one of the ways to honor those we’ve lost is to remember and talk about them.
This reminds me of one of my favorite quotes:
“They are not dead who live in the hearts they leave behind.”
How beautiful is that?
So when a patient tells me that a family member or someone special to them has died, I will engage them further
and ask questions about their loved one. And to see their smile and hear the love in their words as they talk
is amazing- and healing.
