There are particular folks who practice their medical arts in our communities whom tend to be the rather hidden healers. They are the ones who fly under the wire in terms of self-promotion and self-aggrandizement; they tend to be humble, while quietly doing their good works. Nearly 8 months ago I had a back injury/stress related issue where my sacrum area felt like it was slipping, the bones wobbly. During 8 months of limited mobility and discomfort I consulted an orthopedic surgeon, had x-rays, saw a physical therapist, chiropractor, herbalist, etc., but nothing helped, and some things, like chiropractic (which usually helps) seemed to make it worse. Then, I made a commitment to see Laurie Edgcomb twice a week for 6 weeks.
Six weeks later my back is healed! I can’t recommend Laurie enough. She is thorough, committed, gifted, warm, skillful, and compassionate. She is very present and aware, and... Read more »
Laurie was able to inspire me to get back to exercising again and recommended a great place that is a good fit for me. It has helped my back problems, my mental health, and my outlook on life. She is intuitive and inspirational. I felt that she understood me and what my needs were.

I have had a chronic stomach problem for several decades. No amount of diet therapy or herbal medicine was able to ease the nauseous sensation in my upper stomach, which was particularly sensitive to touch. After the first acupuncture session with Laurie, the area felt immensely improved. There was a soothing, warm feeling where it once felt uncomfortable and tight. Two more sessions with Laurie and the disease was gone. My abdomen now feels comfortable and healthy. To have gotten such immediate relief for a condition that has plagued me since childhood was absolutely remarkable.
After an extensive knee reconstruction surgery due to a skiing accident .I had given up on restoring full sensation and feeling to my right knee. The surgery was nearly three years ago, and despite dedicated efforts at physical therapy and rehabilitation, there was still visible swelling in the knee, and a loss... Read more »
“I threw my back out and was totally laid up, I could barely get out of bed without severe pain. Laurie’s treatment of acupuncture and micro-current healing calm my body, mind and muscles, enabling me to move my bones again without pain- Ahh relief. Simply put she’s a lifesaver!”

Perhaps the greatest benefit of acupuncture is that this form of medicine has been practiced for thousands of years and has been specifically used to increase circulation for centuries. At the bedrock of this medicine are the techniques used to stimulate sympathetic responses resulting in blood vessel dilation and increased blood flow. Maybe a simpler way of explaining it is to say acupuncture stimulates energy pathways in the body, thus enhancing blood flow. continue reading
Healthy blood circulation is a vital component of life for human beings. Without proper blood flow, life would cease to exist. Blood isn’t the only thing that’s important, it’s what the blood is carrying that makes circulation so important. Blood carries fresh oxygen, hormones and nutrients that we absorb from our food. Without these components, the organs and tissues of the body become depleted, weakened and eventually stop functioning. Any blockages in the veins and arteries can deprive the brain and the rest of the body from the needed oxygen, which can then lead to a plethora of other medical issues. continue reading
