The opportunity to heal presents itself in myriad ways, and Camille Landry is excited to help Revelstoke residents explore some of these unique mediums.
“By exploring Chinese medicine, it creates an opportunity for people to heal, without always taking medication – which I think is especially important during these times,” notes the owner of Lion’s Heart Acupuncture. “It offers a natural way to get help, healing and support.”
The clinic evokes the healing potential of the body through the use of traditional acupuncture, therapeutic touch and Chinese herbal medicine. Exploring some of the many forms of care can underscore the healing potential it promotes.
While treatments are typically offered one-on-one, Camille has created a community acupuncture program to allow residents to access her services at a lower cost.
Once COVID restrictions are lifted, community acupuncture treatment will take place Mondays and Fridays at 1:30 p.m. at the Alchemy Yoga Studio. By joining, you can rest and receive a powerful acupuncture treatment that promotes relaxation and calmness.
The pain-free process involves the gentle placement of five small, sterilized, disposable needles into specific sites on each ear. For $20 you can participate in the 60-minute session with seven others.
“We’re in the middle of a pandemic and it seems stress and anxiety surrounds us, which in of itself presents plenty of challenges. This program creates an opportunity for the community to manage their stress,” Camille explains. “It’s a quick balancing treatment, that no matter what your body is going through, will balance the energy.”
For someone with excessive energy and experiencing plenty of stress, the treatment helps to calm the body down. Alternatively, someone with less energy will see an uplift to their energy levels, helping them regain balance.
“It’s one of the things I love most about my job – the relationship I get to develop with my clients in supporting them through their journey, no matter what that might be or where that may take them. It’s nice to be able to say ‘Hey, I’m here for you, you’re not alone and I’m here to help’, it’s a very rewarding job,” Camille notes.
