A Step Into the World of Acupuncture, Herbs, and Chinese Medicine in Castle Rock!
Days come and go. Seasons change. I change. Often, I resist. This is the beginning of conflict. The neck becomes stiff, joints swell, apathy and loss of motivation quickly follow. Qi energy does not flow seamlessly for the wholeness of health, which is needed in each day of each life. The flow of healing becomes stagnant. Life goes on, and so must I. There is one method of opening the energy channels, a doorway into a holistic way of living. Chinese Medicine includes acupuncture, herbal supplementation, and nutritional support. These are just a few. I know. I have met many from the arts of Chinese medicine. I even speak a little traditional Chinese. I have my own story to tell. For now, I will soon tell you of someone else’s story. Someone who practices the arts of Chinese medicine and healing.
Having finished several much-neglected chores, I decided to have a calm, quiet sit with the sounds of the Amazon Jungle filling my quiet space. Funny how positive thoughts come while sitting in the quiet space of letting go. I am a practitioner of Qigong. I am (as I write) “making myself ready” for some much-needed exercises. Once the proper techniques are learned, and the theory understood, Qigong is also a way of opening the channels in the body, dissolving the environmental stress dams, releasing the energy to flow smoothly and unimpeded. And then there is acupuncture. Over the past couple of weeks, I had the pleasure to visit with Rebecca Baker of Acupuncture Associates of Castle Rock. I may very well introduce the art, practice, and alternative therapy to my routine of the Chinese healing arts. When I do, it will be with Acupuncture Associates of Castle Rock.
When I walked into the office, it became immediately apparent that I was walking into a world of Love. It was like entering into a realm of “silent peace” within the midst of a busy community and town. I felt I had arrived, at home I knew not existed. How do I describe the essence of the space in which I entered? Caring, Loving, Peaceful, a Relaxing Silence, even a Sense of Hope. Yes, senses. My senses were stimulated.
Acupuncture Associates of Castle Rock (AACR) is quaint in its square footage, yet it is quite Feng Shui. There is a flow from one point to another which is appealing to the senses. There is no thought, just being. Besides a sitting area with water (Shuǐ) and tea (Chá), there are three rooms for clients/patients. Upon entering, the first person you may greet will be Melissa. Melissa has been with Acupuncture Associates of Castle Rock for two years. Melissa is as delightful and pleasant as the Feng Shui surroundings. Then there is Rebecca.
Rebecca Baker L. Ac. Is a delight to meet. I was instantly at ease in her presence. Her years of studies and work in the arts of Chinese Alternative Medicines, as well as her own personal lifestyle practices, no doubt lends themselves to this quiet, peaceful spirit, of which she manifests into the room. Having the pleasure of meeting, engaging in conversation, capturing a couple of photos, I left feeling as if I were carrying this spirit within me. Isn’t that what life is all about? Human touch, interaction, and connectivity?

Her Mission, Her Philosophy
Rebecca has seen people brought from a 9/10 pain level to no pain at her office in one treatment. She has seen her clients lose weight and start healthy lifestyles. She knows oriental medicine is powerful and can help so many people if only they knew about it. Rebecca has taken it as her mission to educate as many people as possible about how wonderful this medicine is and how complimentary it is to western medicine.
A person’s health is ever changing due to emotions, weather, genetics, stress, lifestyle, nutrition and many other factors. The client is treated according to how they present themselves at each visit. By addressing the root cause of a disharmony, greater health can be achieved, than just addressing symptoms. The strength of using traditional Chinese medicine is that it treats the whole person, not just a disease. Rebecca has a passion for Chinese herbal medicine and believes it is important to bridge the gap between acupuncture treatments and to help nourish the body, so it is better able to heal itself. Because this medicine is gentle and natural, remedies sometimes take longer to take effect, but the client can count on virtually no side-effects. Rebecca likes to educate her patients and give them homework, so they take an active part in their healing.
From anxiety and stress to chronic pain and peripheral neuropathy, Chinese medicines in the forms of acupuncture, herbal medicines, nutritional support, fire cupping and Reiki are leaders in alternative medicine solutions. You won’t know until you prove it for yourself. I encourage you to call and schedule a consultation.
As someone who works in the supplement business, I recognize purity and potency when I see it. Her line of Chinese herbals is no doubt, the purity and potency you would expect and hope for. Personally, I am excited to begin a venture under Rebecca’s care. Now for that Qigong practice of my own. I need to get my priorities straight, if you know what I mean.
