~ Certified Balance System Acupuncture Teacher ~
I’m Jillian Wone, a proud graduate of Cohort 2! I live in Vancouver, BC. We live in the West End close to Stanley Park, which we visit every time we get the chance to. At least weekly I have deep moments of gratitude when I can’t believe that I get to live in such a beautiful place. On nice/ not rainy days I walk home and enjoy that view!
I was lead to Balance Acupuncture after I had a community acupuncture treatment and was very interested in the way the acupuncturist knew, intuitively, where to needle. She was also using points that I NEVER used and I wanted to know why?
The Balance Method gives me a way of figuring out the why behind the point prescription. I know that LI 4 works for headaches many times, but I also need to know when and why it won’t work so I can use what will. Empirical uses weren’t enough for me.
Balance Acupuncture totally transformed my practice. THIS is what we should learn in school to be able to practice with efficacy. Balance System Acupuncture has given me the confidence to know what to do almost all of the time, and that what I do is actually of measurable benefit to the patient. Rarely do patients leave without feeling a real shift in their symptoms. I’m also an RMT and this gives me a way to use my palpation skills to further diagnose and treat.
I’m practicing Acupuncture in a way that resonates with and makes deep sense to me. That is such a huge gift. I’m looking forward to helping pass that on!
