How Acupuncture Promotes Self Care

Content Warning: This post contains images of needles.

We’ll be the first to admit–we suck at self care– that’s why we’ve pulled in our Local Hookup partner Night Sky Acupuncture + Ideaphoria. This is the studio of Liz Greenhill, LAc.

Liz uses customized mix of acupuncture, acupressure and guided visualization to help you get your health on. Luckily for you, you can see Liz in in the comfort of your hotel room, or, in her combined art and acupuncture studio right across the street from the Doug Fir and Jupiter Hotel, upstairs in the 811 building.

Liz also facilitates discovery sessions for artists in which energetics and embodiment techniques are applied to the creative process. Bananas, right? Learn more or book an appointment, here: nightskyacupuncture.com


Get meditative. Acupuncture allows the body to enter into a deeply relaxing state. While resting, the mind tends to go toward a meditative place as the brain waves shift. When that happens bio-chemicals are released helping replenish the nervous system!


Acupuncture excels at pain management. Acute sprains and strains often respond quickly to acupuncture. A wrenched back or a stiff neck, or even struggles with chronic pain in joints or muscles, can be addressed with acupuncture as a drug-free natural alternative that gets to the root of the pain.


Acupuncture theories support the notion that the body exists in physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual realms. When the acupuncturist designs a customized treatment, attention is paid to the current emotional state, so that the energetics assist patients in moving through states of grief, anger, tension, and worry.


Not only does acupuncture help support the body’s immune system, it also helps ward off oncoming sickness and promotes recovery from illness by clearing out sinus pressure, headaches, sore throats, and laryngitis.


Acupuncture also works in tandem with the standard medicine your physician may prescribe. As an auxiliary method used alongside Western medicine, acupuncture is often a successful, holistic alternative for digestive, reproductive, endocrine, and respiratory conditions or chronic illness.


Opening up new insights in the creative project or artistic process is important to many creatives. Acupuncture is an energy medicine that works with the intricate network of the body as an overall composition. In multiple ways it helps move stuck energy, getting you back on your creative track in no time!


Night Sky Acupuncture + Ideaphoria, located right across the street from the Jupiter Hotel, is your local stop for a magically transformative healing experience. Schedule ahead for a session in-office or arrange for Liz to come to your hotel room for an individual, couples, or small group acupuncture pop-up.
