Flowing Rivers Acupuncture offers “relief, comfort, balance and overall well-being” with Oriental medicine, according to board-certified licensed acupuncturist and Chinese herbalist Pamela Battle. Acupuncture’s effects have been compared to rebooting a computer. This ancient modality is thought to rebalance the action of neurotransmitters, endorphins and other biochemical agents to promote better blood flow, reduce pain and stress, and improve immunity, metabolism, resilience and hormonal balance.
How does your work differ from that of others in your profession?
I have extensive familiarity working with many Western medical modalities and specialties from my previous career in sales and marketing for a variety of medical products and services, providing additional insight into my patients’ concerns. I am trained in a variety natural therapies and services, such as Oriental medicine (acupuncture and Chinese herbal formulas), functional medicine assessment, alchemical healing, stress reduction, AcuPatching phototherapy, cupping, auricular therapy and dietary support. Patients visit my Acupuncture practice for treatment of headaches and body pain; reactions to stress, such as anxiety, depression and insomnia; women’s health concerns; and other chronic health issues, including digestive, sinus, respiratory and skin complaints.
What should someone expect from working with you?
My approach is a fusion of my intuition and my different trainings, knowledge and skills, which involve a variety of techniques, tools and modalities. The result is a combination of medical and spa-like treatments. I customize treatment sessions in collaboration with my patients, targeting their specific conditions and objectives and empowering them to take charge of their health and well-being.
Anything else our readers should know?
Acupuncture can provide a relaxing, restorative and refreshing time-out from daily routine and stress. Especially now, as we are learning to better cope and thrive in our uncertain times, acupuncture combined with other modalities has helped patients find improvement, relief and more resilience as they deal with physical and emotional effects of the past few very stressful years, including long-haul covid symptoms, grief, fear and uncertainty.
I offer free 20-minute consultations by appointment, and I accept insurance when acupuncture is a covered benefit for your particular complaint. I also follow up-to-date safety and disinfecting protocols.
