Licensed Acupuncturist, Shiatsu Massage and Reiki Practitioner
I am an Acupuncturist, Shiatsu Massage & Reiki Practitioner who helps people achieve physical, mental & emotional balance.
Hi! I'm Courtney LoMonte. I love working as a healing facilitator! I find the combination of Acupuncture, Shiatsu (Acupressure) Massage and Reiki (energy healing) to complement each other wonderfully. I have worked as a community Acupuncturist and found that in order to achieve healing on several levels it is more beneficial to receive several modalities. I went into private practice to be able to offer more than just Acupuncture to people who desire to heal physical, mental, emotional and spiritual imbalances. I offer each modality as a stand alone or a combination of 2 or all 3 modalities. My focus is Back pain, Allergies and Mental Emotional Health. When not working, I enjoy being outside in nature, practicing Yoga, making jewelry, reading and gardening.
Growing up, my mother had little success with Western Medicine to help a birth abnormality that resulted in limited movement as she got older. I always longed to help her but never knew how. In my early twenties I discovered Acupuncture after injuring my shoulder and was unable to work. After a few sessions my shoulder felt great and my anxiety started to quiet. I decided to pursue a career in wellness to be able to help people with both physical and mental emotional ailments. I learned Shiatsu at Acupuncture school and Reiki soon after. It brings me great Joy to see people transform with these modalities. I also work on a sliding scale because I believe everyone should be able to receive healing not just those with Health Insurance.
Like floating on a cloud. A natural high. Very relaxed.
Acupuncture is pretty incredible. Once you relax, there should be no pain with point insertion. After a few moments your energy starts moving and works to unblock any stagnation or pain. It's a gentle process and requires trust that your body wants to take care of itself, and knows how to if only you can calm yourself and let it!
