Happy Chinese New Year!

Year of the Pig Forecast by Lillian Pearl Bridges

Sarah Fields and I (Chris Jacobs) have both studied the face reading techniques of the amazing Lillian Bridges. Her teaching style is that of a storyteller. Decoding to face can tell us some much about what a person has been through in their lives. I highly recommend checking her work out. Each year Lillian Bridges releases a prediction for the coming Chinese New Year. These predictions are based on Chinese 5 element theory. We have been blown away by her incredible accuracy. Each year is a different element and when combined with the energy of the animal we can expect certain outcomes. 2018 was year of the Earth Dog. The first year the energy is contracting after 4 years of expansion. 2019 the year of the Earth Pig means we will be eating good and maybe getting a little bit less done. Be easy on yourself this year. Rest, Recharge and Nourish yourself.

About Acupuncture

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the medical practice of using small needles to stimulate the movement of energy (qi) in the body. An acupuncturist might also incorporate other techniques to build or disperse energy like: Cupping, Massage, Gua Sha (Scraping), Moxabustion (the burning of mugwort to warm up the body), etc.

What is qi?

Qi is simply energy. The meaning of the Chinese character for qi simply translates to: the energy that is contained with in a single grain of rice. Carbohydrates which are found in rice are chains of carbon atoms that are glued together by energy that the rice plant gathers from the sun. When we eat rice we break down the carbon chains and free the energy to power our body. The whole world around us is powered by qi. Our sun rains qi down on us everyday in the form of heat and light. It is both mundane and mysterious,

Does Acupuncture hurt?

Pain is an incredibly relative experience. Each of us react to positive and negative stimulation differently. For the most part acupuncture is relatively painless. Most peoples experience of needles are shots at the doctor. Acupuncture needles are far smaller than syringes that doctors use. Most people may feel a slight prick sensation at the surface of the skin. Usually any discomfort if there is any fades quickly. The true sensations that are felt during acupuncture are a bit more difficult to describe. Many people feel sensations like tingling, electrical sensations, pressure, temperature changes, warm fuzzy feelings, etc. Most of these sensations dissipate quickly. Once the needles are in most people feel a strong sense of relaxation and many people even fall asleep during treatment.

What people have said about us:
Wonderful experience!!!! I received much more than I expected; I didn’t understand before why I was having an intense pain on my back; Christian explained to me everything so clear that I felt I was in the right place for the first time. I feel very confident that he is going to help me ease my pain and I am very grateful for this. The attention and time they dedicated to me is very rare nowadays. Thank you Christian for your dedication and integrity.

Not your average Acupuncturist. I have been seeing Chris Jacobs at ACA. I continued to be amazed with his skills, knowledge and insight. He has remedied issues that no other health practitioner was able to do. He asks the right questions, and proposes the right answers. I wouldn’t have thought such a young man could be so wise, but OMG, he is truly a healer! I am beyond impressed…and so grateful that I found him.

Even Better than Imagined. This was my first acupuncture experience. I sat down with Chris and expressed my concerns. He explained everything and made it simple to understand and had a great disposition and eased my anxiety. I have not relaxed that much in a long time and I will definitely continue treatment here for obvious reasons. Thank you so much for plugging me back into life!

Sarah Fields is a true healer. I feel grateful to have crossed paths with her, and receive the care and medicine her practice provides. She is an asset to our community and has been a source of healing for myself, family, and friends.

Great treatment! I started acupuncture because of lower back pain. In my first visit, the acupuncturist Chris Jacobs identified a connection between my back pain and an old injury from 20 years ago. I noticed results after my first treatment.

Excellent! Chris treated me for a severe rash / allergic reaction spreading on my feet and gave me insight to potential reasons why this is reoccurring for me. Hours later the reaction had subsided and the day later almost gone. Thank you so much Chris.

When my clients tell me that they have tried EVERYTHING, I refer them to Dr Sarah. Her unique approach and all of the areas of study she can draw from makes her work outside of the box and fresh. I have personally loved her approach to my chronic issues and always walk out feeling completely heard and attended to.

Thank you Dov Shoneman. I have been receiving acupuncture from him for
the last 5 months, and it has been an incredible recovery, original
‘symptoms’ are gone, and now the holistic health approach ranges from
liver cleanses, to herb supplements, to general wellbeing and
exponential health. Thank you Dov!

My three year old actually left smiling! What an amazing interaction! My three year old daughter came in very clingy and unsure. Chris used such gentleness and also drew from his creative side. He brought in a sick Teddy and asked her to help him with the”magic” letting her insert needles into Teddy and making him feel better! This opened her up to receiving the magic herself. Highly recommended!! P.S. he’s great with adults too.

As a relatively new comer to the Asheville community, I had no contacts with the acupuncturists in the area, and had to rely upon the internet for recommendations. Unfortunately, I wasn’t completely satisfied with their professional care. Then I was referred to Dov and he has been my salvation when it came to providing relief and needed therapy for my rotation cup problem. His approach is markedly different from the two other acupuncturists I had seen in that he treats the whole body. It is what you call a holistic approach to acupuncture. I’m greatly indebted to Dov for enabling me to enjoy life free of the constant pain and discomfort I experienced in the past.
