Man is small looking at the Universe My friends up north are getting an ear-full as I talk about our lovely winter temperature and evening swims under the moon and stars. Looking up at our night sky I believe anything is possible!   I am truly enjoying being part of Punta Gorda’s vibrant and friendly community.  On February 24, wellBeing Acupuncture held its Grand Opening Celebration. My purpose is to create a place in our community, where people have the opportunity to learn and experience health and wellness on a body, mind and spirit level.  As an Acupuncturist, I understand how uniquely created we all are.  Each treatment is designed specifically for each person. The wisdom of Acupuncture as a healing art and science, teaches us to care for ourselves. Wellness is a daily practice.
