Receiving Treatments During COVID-19 - Try Distance Healing!

There will be no in person treatments by Executive order of Governor Scott from March 23 @ 8:00 pm until April 15, 2020.

"For the avoidance of doubt, at this time, subject to closures and limitations provided in prior orders, all other businesses may remain open, but must, to the extent practicable, implement CDC guidance to ensure social distancing, including: maintaining a distance of 6 feet between persons"

I will remain open for distance healing sessions, phone consultations, and herbal formulas during this time.  I am committed to providing an excellent level of care for my clients, and for my community and to that end have already transitioned my clients to distance sessions only.  In this way I can continue to use my unique skills and extensive experience as a graduate-practitioner of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing to help my clients receive care from the comfort of their own homes.  Click the link to learn more about distance healing sessions.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at or 802-595-2248.

Please remember to take time to breathe, meditate, relax, do art work, dance, walk and use the phone to talk to friends, family, and neighbors wile maintaining social distancing (6 feet).  Mental health is as important as physical health.  If you would like a 15 minute free phone consultation please contact me.

Wishing you all the best during this season,

Christina Ducharme, LAc., MAOM, NCCAOM certified, and Graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing

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
  • Fertility
  • Menopause
  • The symptoms associated with Lyme’s disease
  • Stroke recovery, Bell’s Palsy
  • Stress
  • Insomnia
  • IBS and other digestive concerns
  • And so much more…

Chinese Herbal Medicine

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).
