Acupuncture in Salem Oregon – Wendy Childs
Acupuncture in Salem Oregon
Wendy Childs, M.Ac.
5 Element Acupuncture
Gua Sha and Cupping
Chinese Medicine has been practiced in Asia for over 2,000 years as the primary system of medicine for billions of people. We offer Acupuncture in Salem Oregon at Indigo Wellness Center. While often used in the U.S. to treat pain, a trained acupuncturist looks at our body’s systems as a comprehensive whole and treats each person as a complex, integrated being. This usually results in relief from many symptoms: from decreased stress, to improved digestion, better sleep, relief from depression, and much more.
5 Element Acupuncture uses the understanding that our bodies are a part of nature, and change like the seasons change. This inter-relatedness provides a framework in which to treat all of our symptoms in the simplest, most effective way possible. Acupuncture promotes healing on all levels—mentally, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.
Acupuncture does not require that you believe in it for it to be effective. It works by moving the Qi (energy) in the body and releasing blockages. This allows the body to heal itself. Often people experience enhanced health and well-being beyond what they had thought possible.
Wendy also uses Chinese Herbs, Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT)—a system of self applied acupressure, Tuning Forks, Gua Sha, cupping, Shamanic Healing, flower essences, and other modalities as needed. She is currently accepting new clients. Expect to spend two hours at the first appointment, which includes a detailed health history, a diagnostic exam, and the initial treatment. Follow-up appointments are generally one hour in length.

Comments From Clients:
The healing starts with Wendy’s care-full listening, and continues with tailored, skilled treatment. My health has taken a turn for the better after only a few treatments. Thank you, Wendy! —S.C.
Wendy is a skilled, compassionate, and wise practitioner. I would recommend her to anyone. While I miss having her in Baltimore as a friend, colleague, and as my own acupuncturist, Portland is exceedingly lucky to have her. —J.C.
As you know, my back was aching when I saw you last week. Also, you know I’m not fond of the needles so I was extremely pleased to hear of the alternative method you were going to try on me. The tuning forks were fantastic, and I haven’t had one bit of pain since our session. I am thrilled, needless to say, that you don’t have to use the needles on me in the future. As always, I am grateful for your help and love it when you come back to the East Coast for a visit. —N.W.
