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!”

Research tells us that acupuncture has been beneficial in treating a variety of conditions including high blood pressure, stress and anxiety, and headaches, just to name a few. And the good news is, you can add allergy symptoms to that list as well.
In the world of Traditional Chinese medicine, the lung is probably the organ whose TCM functions overlap the most with its Western functions. Respiration, the immune system and the skin are all systems heavily influenced by the lung, both in acupuncture and in Western medicine.
An allergy occurs when your immune system reacts to a foreign substance, called an allergen. This could be anything from something you inhale to something you touch to something you eat. An allergic reaction may cause sneezing, coughing, watery eyes, a running nose, a sore throat and rashes. In severe cases, allergic reactions can induce something known as anaphylactic
Allergies, seasonal or otherwise, is one of the biggest health issues people deal with in the United States. And the numbers are rising every year. Part of this is because our agricultural practices have changed drastically in the past 40 years and our bodies are not accustomed to dealing with genetically modified foods or the excessive amounts of pesticides
Spring is the season of growth, regeneration, increased activity and new beginnings. During the season of spring, people experience many changes. Allergies, high blood pressure, headaches, sinus pain and congestion, anger, irritation and tendon problems are just some of the issues common to the spring months. Many of these problems can be attributed to increased wind in the environment.
