Lindsey Lawson,Shamanic practitioner, licensed acupuncturist, Chinese herbalist .
Blending Traditional Chinese Medicine with Shamanism allows Lindsey to reflect the depths of her medicine more fully. Understanding that our body and everything that surrounds us is pure energy allows her to move seamlessly into other realms to find the true cause of dis-ease and find where true healing needs to take place. When a shamanic situation is resolved, the body may take longer to make the shift and continue uncomfortable side effects. Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can address this issue. Lindsey facilitates the removal of energtetic blocks, releasing suffering beings, connection with power animals and healing.  She has found this particular blend of tools to be effective for treating insomnia, anxiety and depression, various types of body pain (especially chronic).
