Acupuncture without Needles
There are new, innovative modalities to treat the East Asian Meridians, that do not involve needles. Trudy aims to be a pioneer in bringing these to her patients, as they are the medicines of the future. She integrates Sonopuncture (Acutonic's tuning forks) and Colorpuncture (Colored Light) into her treatment options, as some people have needle sensitivities. Sound and light for healing are becoming more popular, as science advances in research about the body's magnetic fields. Trudy has taken advanced courses in the Certification Programs for Acutonic's Sonopuncture and Esogetic Colorpuncture. As a Reiki Master, she also integrates Reiki into her healing repertoire.
