Asian medicine includes Asian herbology, Asian bodywork, auricular therapy (stimulation of points on the ear), acupressure (pressure-point therapy), and acupuncture.
The latter entails the gentle insertion of very fine needles (each thinner than the width of a human hair!) at specific points on the body. This process stimulates movement of energy within the body, allowing natural healing to take place. Acupuncture practitioners are trained to select these points, based on over 3,000 years of experience in the Orient.
Serenity Walker, L.Ac., Dipl. OM, holds a master's degree in acupuncture and Oriental medicine (MSOM) from Southwest Acupuncture College in Santa Fe, NM, one of the oldest institutions in the country. She is nationally certified by NCCAOM as a diplomate of Oriental medicine, and she is a licensed acupuncturist in Minnesota with the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice.
Serenity has more than five years of practical experience in acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Western herbs, nutrition, Asian body therapy, aromatherapy, yoga, and meditation. She has experience working in a variety of health-care settings, including hospitals, rehabilitation centers, chiropractic offices, pediatric clinics, mental-health settings, and HIV clinics.
She has completed over 500 hours of additional training in Japanese acupuncture and also the Integrative Health Practitioner training program at Abbott Northwestern's Penny George Institute of Health and Healing. Serenity's passion is educating the public about the benefits of integrative medicine and the role of the mind-body-spirit connection in the health-care environment. She offers workshops, public talks, personal consultations with health-care providers and the community at large.
