July 2023 Flood Updates for Blue Heron Acupuncture
My Marshfield clinic was impacted by the flood and I am no longer able to operate from the Old Schoolhouse Common until remediation is complete. In the meantime, clients can schedule long-distance, book in Burlington, or receive treatments at my home. My house is on a dirt road 1 mile from the Old Schoolhouse Common. We do have cats and a dog, so if pet dander is a concern, please book an online distance session. Thank you for your understanding as we all work together to recover from this impactful event.
If you were impacted by the July 2023 flood please go to Vermont 211 for information and to submit a form for assistance.
In Person Sessions Available in Two Locations:
Due to Flooding: As of 7/18/2023: 87 Bailey Pond Rd, Marshfield VT 05658

Chinese acupuncture is an ancient healing art developed thousands of years ago. The ancients understood and developed the use of the energetic meridian system, and the use of points on these meridians to treat not only the manifestation of disharmony within the body, but the underlying root cause as well. Today’s acupuncturists use fine filiform needles (solid needles that can be smaller than a strand of hair) to stimulate the meridian system, bring qi and blood to the area, and facilitate healing.
Acupuncture treatments help with the following disharmonies:
- Acute and chronic pain
- Recent studies have shown that acupuncture can be an alternative to opiate use
- Menstrual irregularities
- The symptoms associated with Lyme’s disease
- Stroke recovery, Bell’s Palsy
- IBS and other digestive concerns
- And so much more…
Chinese Herbal Medicine is an ancient traditional healing art that is thousands of years old. The ancient herbalists considered the physical and energetic healing properties of each herb and how to synergistically combine them to treat not only the symptoms of disharmony, but the underlying root as well. Chinese herbal medicine is available in patent form (pills or tablets), or can be specifically tailored to meet each individuals needs (raw or powdered formulas).
Healing sessions can assist with depression, psycho-emotional concerns, fibromyalgia, chronic pain, releasing held trauma, manifesting your soul’s longing, finding balance and ease in everyday life, creating healthy relationships, creating healthy boundaries, healing ancestral trauma, and more. Christina combines different techniques such as chakra balancing, hara healing, core star expansion, astral clearing, relationship cord clearing, past life clearing, and the Chinese Meridian system (as well as other techniques) to guide each healing. Energy healing sessions can be done with hands on or off the body, and long distance.
Christina is a graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing, a world renowned transformational healing school, and has over 2000 hours of intensive training.

She currently teaches her three year healing journey program in-person at Blue Heron Acupuncture in Marshfield VT.
