Acupuncture Testimonial – Improved Health Without Pain

My experience with Acupuncture began in the early 90’s when a friend referred me to Barbara Paul.  He had had success with her treating a knee injury.

I had suffered for many years with bowel obstructions and adhesions from subsequent surgeries.  Immediately I learned how powerful Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine is.

As I received treatments my pain gradually began to decrease.  The treatment itself was peaceful and relaxing to the point I fell asleep every time.

Barbara’s experience, knowledge and gentleness have paved the way to improved health, without pain.  I will be a forever client of hers!

About Barbara Paul

Welcome to Skagit Whole Health Center, where I am dedicated to providing the highest standard of care based on an attitude of gentleness, warmth, professionalism and respect. My name is Barbara Paul and through the energy healing practices of Acupuncture, Chinese nutrition and herbs, Tuina (Chinese Massage), Shiatsu and Qi Gong, I create a treatment plan that addresses each individuals needs. I treat not only the symptoms, but the root of the illness, thus restoring the balance upon which holistic health is based. Humans natural state of being is one of wellness and ease. Fatigue, mental and emotional stress, pain and illness are all causes of an imbalance to this state resulting in dis-ease. Energy healing can allow one to return to harmony and ease by bringing balance to the physical, emotional and spiritual levels of being. Born in Switzerland to a pediatric nurse trained in herbology. I spent hours with my mother hiking and studying the wildflowers and plants of the woods near my home outside of Zurich. Being given this love and knowledge of healing and nature, I went on to study Acupuncture and Chinese medicine at the Northwest Institute of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine in Seattle WA. There I earned my Masters in Acupuncture and became board certified by NCCAOM in 1993. Having studied with Julian Scott from Great Britain, I also specialize in pediatric acupuncture.
