Laura Stegman Love, LAC, CMT

Being a native of Salina, KS, Laura is excited to be back serving the community. She graduated from Sacred Heart and went to Johnson County Community College for pre-nursing. However, while she was there she realized holistic health was a better fit for her beliefs and ambitions for helping people. She went on to revive a Master's of Science in Acupuncture from the Colorado School of Traditional Medicine and a certificate in Massage Therapy from Fort Hays State University. Laura is passionate about acupuncture because it is a while-body approach and each treatment is tailored to meet the specific needs of that individual person.

About Acupuncture

Acupuncture originated in China almost 5,000 years ago and is one of the oldest forms of natural healing. Acupuncture is a whole body approach that works with the body's connective tissue. When an acupuncture needle is inserted into the skin it disrupts the branching points of the nerves. After these branching points are disrupted it sends a message to the muscles and organs to relax, allowing the blood to flow freely.

How does Acupuncture work?

The Chinese based their medicine on an energetic approach rather than the biochemical approach of western medicine. Everything is made of radiating energy that shaped and supports our physical body. This vital energy in acupuncture is called qi (pronounced "chee"). Qi is made up of the air we breathe and the food we eat. The qi flows through specific pathways called meridians or channels. The meridians work like rivers and supply nourishment and energy to our organs. When the meridian can't flow freely and can't supply our organs with qi it creates disharmony or disease in our body. These meridians communicate with the acupuncture points in the body. Once the needle is inserted into these points it influences the qi so it can flow freely to the organs allowing the body to heal and harmonize.
