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!”

If you are just beginning to look into acupuncture, you will be exposed to language you probably aren’t familiar with. One of the first phrases you might come across is the term “meridian.” Meridians are defined as the invisible channels through which qi (or energy) circulates throughout the body. The acupuncture points are the locations where the qi of
Anger is the emotion associated with springtime in Traditional Chinese Medicine. For most of us, we consider anger a bad emotion, something to avoid or get rid of, so why would it be one that TCM would shine a light on?
Well, no emotion is inherently good or bad, it’s how we deal with challenging emotions that can end up
Winter’s element is water and is associated with the kidneys, which in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is considered the source of all qi and energy within the body. Winter is also associated with the bladder and adrenal glands.
Focusing on inner reflection, rest, energy conservation and storage during the winter months is when it’s most important as
Everyone feels cold sometimes, but some people are perpetually chilled to a point where it interferes with their lives.
From a Traditional Chinese Medicine perspective, there are two different kinds of cold in the body: full cold and empty cold. Full cold refers to a condition where there is an excess of cold-type energy in the body
A very common complaint that acupuncturists hear from our patients is that they constantly feel tired. Sometimes this fatigue is related to lack of sleep, but sometimes no amount of rest seems to alleviate the sleepiness.
From an acupuncture and Chinese Medicine perspective, there are numerous imbalances in our bodies that can cause the constant fatigue. Here are some of
