With time and patience, the mulberry leaf becomes a silk gown - Chinese Proverb
Having evolved over thousands of years, acupuncture is one of the oldest continually practiced medical modalities in the world. This treatment involves the insertion and manipulation of flexible, hair-thin needles at specific points along the body's meridian pathways, which are channels through which the body’s energy is thought to flow. Acupuncture is a safe, effective, chemical-free way to promote the body's remarkable self-healing abilities. It is used to prevent and treat disease, relieve pain, balance mood, enhance athletic performance, increase fertility, and improve overall health and wellness.
Every aspect of this plant, Morus alba, has a specific purpose for more than one species and weighs in the balance of our delicate ecosystem.
As the silkworm receives his nutrition from the mulberry leaves, he is able to create something beautiful and strong for the rest of the world to enjoy. Essentially, Angela hopes the same for her patients: to use all of the benefits traditional Chinese medicine has to offer in order that individuals may be nourished, thus generating their resilience and vitality.
