Q: How did you get started in acupuncture?
A. I have always been interested in the health and wellness of myself and others close to me. I also realized and witnessed a breakdown in the health care delivery model when I was young. I was instinctively drawn to the eight limbs of oriental medicine with a history of over 2000 years of healing and dis-ease prevention. It possesses a valid modern day approach to wellness and resilience to dis-ease.
Q. Could you share why you believe in acupuncture’s efficacy?
A. The innate strength of the human body (also known as the immune system) is a gift that is meant to self-correct by creating the bodies own balance and health. Being true to the holistic healing process, acupuncture and the eight limbs of oriental medicine considers the person as a whole. It uses the strength of the bodies immune system to self correct and support health. Acupuncture works!
Q. Why are you choosing to be involved with Common Ground?
A. I believe strongly in self care and the sliding scale approach to wellness care offers more care to more people. Everything we offer at Common Grounds works very well along with western medicine. And at Common Grounds we like to introduce people to “Self care-health-care” in a relaxed, casual and non threatening environment.
Robert is available for appointments on Mondays and Thursdays from 4:20-7pm. To schedule, call 434-218-7677 or visit commongroundcville.org/acupuncture/
