Words from a Rolfer/bodyworker about acupuncture:
There are a few questions that come up OVER and OVER in my practice. And I should probably include those in the FAQ’s on my website, since that is exactly what an FAQ is. However, just in case you’re not reading my website on a daily basis, I’m going to start answering common questions here in my newsletter. And lately, the popular question is: “What do you think of acupuncture?”
What I think of acupuncture:
To this, I always reply that I LOVE acupuncture. Because I do, and I’m not in the habit of lying to my clients.
The next question, is about whether or not I have an acupuncturist I recommend. And to that, I say, go see Lee.
Lee Hurter and I have been working together for about a year and a half and I cannot tell you how grateful I am for him in my life. While I originally sought treatment with Lee to see if there was anything he could do to help the swelling in my feet (yes, is the answer), he has helped with so much more than that. When I crashed my body into a rock while running as fast as I could down a mountain, Lee is the one who put me back together. When I had a cold that laid me out for a week, Lee is the one who helped clear the mucus out of my lungs so I could go more than 10 minutes between blowing my nose. But the number one thing that Lee has helped me with (and the most unexpected from my inexperienced viewpoint) is the emotional aspect. Lee has helped me get to the root of, and move through anger and frustration and grief and sadness and hopelessness and annoyance….and on and on. It’s been so, so helpful.

Lee Hurter is the owner and licensed acupuncturist of Moving Points Acupuncture (movingpointsacupuncture.com).
He was drawn to acupuncture 12 years ago after learning the NADA (National Acupuncture Detoxification Association) protocol. This protocol works with withdrawal symptoms, anxiety, trauma, cravings, stress, and insomnia. Lee then went to school to learn Classical 5-Element Acupuncture which is an ancient form of acupuncture that focuses on the emotional and constitutional roots of imbalances, illness, and pain.
