Get To The Root Causes Of Your Health Issues

Holistic Health Counseling helps you discover your health in a greater context. At some level, we all know that our health symptoms are completely connected to our entire life—our behaviors, lifestyle choices, thoughts, emotions, relationships, and so on. However, sometimes it’s hard to connect the dots.

Holistic Health Counseling helps you connect the tip of the iceberg to the bigger whole.

A Systemic Approach to Your Overall Wellbeing

Based on your needs, topics may include strategies for stress management, time management, nutrition, exercise, clutter clearing and organization, and other lifestyle recommendations. Your session may also include guided qigong, meditation instructions, breathing exercises and emotional process work.

Many clients use Holistic Health Counseling sessions as a time to go deep with their emotional healing process, to examine their careers, relationships and overall life purpose, and to discuss their spiritual life and personal growth and evolution. Through deep listening, spiritual counseling and support, and practical life coaching skills, we can support you in your healing process.

These sessions end with a full acupuncture session, which is a perfect way to integrate and settle your energy after an in-depth coaching conversation.

The Benefits and Results

Holistic Health Counseling helps you:

  • Discover the underlying lifestyle factors that are contributing to your health issues;
  • Identify the lifestyle modifications that will be most likely to provide the largest benefits for your health issues;
  • Begin to practice and integrate these lifestyle changes.

Holistic Health Counseling is often a catalyst for helping you take the next step in your healing process. Together with you, in conversation, we identify the areas that are your priorities and focus our health counseling efforts there.

How It Works

At your first session, we will get a thorough history of what’s happening in your life right now and any historical factors that are particularly important. Sometimes, this stage can take 2-3 sessions, depending on the complexity of your situation.

In subsequent sessions, we will explore the root causes of your top health and life issues. During the session, we’ll identify homework and take-home practices for you to move your healing process forward.

At each session, after 45 minutes of coaching conversation, you’ll receive a 45-minute acupuncture treatment to both integrate the emotions and thoughts brought up during the conversation, as well as to address the physical, emotional and mental issues that you’re working on.

You can also opt for a coaching session without acupuncture – these are 55 minutes in length.

How Many Sessions Will I Need?

Start out with 1 session. If it seems like a good fit for you, we recommend continuing with a series of 4 sessions so we can solidly get to know you and begin to address your major concerns. We’ll evaluate your progress at that point and suggest a plan for your next steps. Some people find that these initial 5 sessions are perfect for them, and others find significant benefit from coming to regular sessions over a period of several months.

What is it like to work with Jeremy?

Coaching with Jeremy: deep listening and insights

I have been coming to Transformational Acupuncture for a couple of months now and it has been a lifeline for me. In my search for an acupuncturist, I initially was looking for a female because the issues I have been struggling with seemed to me, at the time, better suited for a female to assist me with. But when I found Jeremy Riesenfeld online and read about his journey, my inner spirit knew that he was the one I needed to go to. It took courage for me to share my innermost self with him in our very first session, but I also knew that I needed to have courage and trust that he could only help me if I bared my soul to him. And I was right!

I have had many acupuncture sessions over the last 20 years, but none of them have been as profoundly effective as Jeremy’s. He has and continues to engage in his own deep, transformational work which makes him a truly effective counselor and acupuncturist. Jeremy always presents very grounded in our sessions. He is an incredible listener with deep insights to share and invites others to view obstacles and struggles from different perspectives rather than with judgment or black/white thinking.

I feel safe, heard and understood in a session with Jeremy. And I always walk out feeling like a million bucks on every level. Jeremy’s wife, Nadia, who is a co-owner and manages everything behind the scenes, always offers a calm, kind and joyful energy when I walk in the door. She is such a delight! Jeremy and Nadia make an amazing team and are such a blessing to me and all of their clients!
