From Apples to Acupuncture

Wes Eades

Meet Wes.  

He was born in Erie, PA; the heart of the Concord grape juice and wine industry.  His father was a self-made restaurant entrepreneur and his mother was a corporate book-keeper.  His father passed 12 years ago, and  his Mom is still going strong at 82 years young.  It is their strong work ethic that has contributed to him being such an amazing practitioner.

Wes originally followed in the family business becoming a certified pastry chef.  In 1965, he was hit by a car and severely injured.  He suffered a fractured hip and pelvis, concussion, and severe migraine headaches.  As time passed the migraines became relentless.  He met an Acupuncturist who was able to release his headache and he became pain free without pharmaceutical medications.  

Soon the healing arts pulled him in a different direction than the family business - he began studying western massage and eastern bodywork under a Tuina master for 18 years.  Then continuing the traditional healing arts; pursued a career in Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine.

 

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a medical therapy developed over 2000 years ago in Asia.  Acupuncture stimulates specific points beneath the skin by the insertion of acupuncture needles.  This process restores the balance of the body's energy, also known as "Qi" (pronounced chi).  

There are other modalities that can assist with Acupuncture such as Traditional Chinese Medicine, Cupping, Auricular Ear Therapy, Acupressure / Tuina (Chinese Medical Massage Therapy), and Nutritional Food Therapy.

Acupuncture plays an important role in overall health.  Not only is it recognized by the World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health as being an effective treatment for many ailments, it is equally important for preventative health and anti-aging.
