The Blue Phoenix Philosophy

When you’ve been doing the same thing for twenty-four years, there is a tendency for the work to get stale. In my case, the opposite has been true. The more I delve into Chinese medicine, and the psyche, the more fascinating it all becomes to me. In great part, I believe this is due to the depth of Chinese medicine. Despite its being nearly three thousand years old (or surely because of that), it is like diving into an ocean and thinking one knows water. It is a constantly unfolding process, full beauty, joy and mystery.

All this to say that when I first meet with a new patient, they are a mystery to be unraveled. Sometimes I know what I will do, and I am surprised that the result was other than I had imagined it would be. Thankfully, more often, I follow the clues given me to a resolution of issues, my mantra intact: We. Can. Change.

The Blue Phoenix philosophy is simple:

By using the tools we have at our disposal we create long-lasting change in the patient. For that reason I use not only acupuncture and Chinese Herbs, but also several forms of hypnotherapy. They include Neuro-Linguistic Programming, Ericksonian Hypnosis and classical Egyptian trance work. As un undertone to all this, I strongly believe that today’s stressors are unlike any that we have seen before. Modern, non-invasive methods are required to ‘fix’ the problem.

Aside from the modalities I’ve mentioned I also may use targeted supplements for detoxification from Heavy Metals, chemical, food allergies and immune-suppressants. We then “feed” the body targeted, organic supplements so it may start healing fully. Of course, you are always the arbiter of how we may proceed. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Praise for Daniel: I recommend Dan to everyone who will listen! I went almost every week during my pregnancy and his acupuncture treatments were amazingly helpful. He eased my nausea, aches and pains, and even helped me sleep better. He’s the best for sure!
