Blue Heron Acupuncture & Apothecary

Providing Classical Chinese Medicine to Charleston, SC

<p>Christine Warrix * Our Bridge * Acupuncturist </p>

<p>Christine has brought so many valuable strengths to Blue Heron’s practice and greatly enriched our offerings as a clinic. Having worked in the worlds of massage, dental hygiene, physical therapy and cancer care, she offers deep knowledge of the body and a natural connection to western medicine. Her solid background makes her especially equipped to introduce those to Chinese medicine who may feel unsure venturing into unknown territory or scared of the unfamiliar.</p>

<p>Chris is nurturing and supportive of her patients tuning into what’s going on in their bodies, taking restorative moments for themselves, and recognizing the role stress plays in their lives. She’s an ace at treating pain and being the champion of patients going through cancer care. She also holds a special place in her heart for veterans and has propelled Blue Heron’s work with our local VA and veterans.</p>

<p>We are so grateful for the wisdom, experience and joy Chris shares with Blue Heron and our patients! It is her unique attributes that create an uplifting and supportive bridge between eastern and western medicine as well as a path to greater health for her patients. 🌈 (at Charleston, South Carolina)</p>

<p>Fertility, exquisite maternal care and the health of your baby are things we care passionately about. It hurts our hearts that this can be such a struggle for women, and a lonely one at that - particularly when women don’t receive the support they deserve or their births don’t go as they hope. Let us be part of your healthcare team when you are pregnant or striving to conceive. ❤️ (at Charleston, South Carolina)<br/>

I know I’ve mentioned this podcast once or twice before so you’re hearing it from me again but CHECK OUT THIS INTERVIEW with Margot Rossi. She was my teacher before starting student clinic. I can say now that I’m very lucky to have had so many brilliant and compassionate teachers during my time at Daoist Traditions. 🧐To all the Chinese Medicine nerds out there you will love this interview. 🤓She talks about the challenges with letting down our egos our judgements, and our guards in the treatment room. Hope you enjoy listening as much as I did. 〰️Link in bio〰️ #brilliant #compassionate #chinesemedicine #qiologicalpodcast #asheville #avl</p>
