Acupuncture Services Begin This October
We are pleased to announce that Acupuncture services will begin at Back To Bliss’ Colby location this October. It has been a goal of Back To Bliss’ to bring acupuncture to our area for some time now so that we can have local access to this amazingly beneficial therapy. Our mission is to make real wellness locally accessible and affordable to maintain, and we feel that adding acupuncture to our service menu does both of these things for our rural area. We are delighted to have connected with a skilled acupuncturist who shares our philosophies on customer service and quality care. Our acupuncturist, Jocelyn, will be available from Tuesday – Friday, 10 am – 7 pm.
Check our acupuncture service page for details on pricing. We offer package discounts when purchasing six acupuncture treatments and you can use sale gift certificates for her services as normal.
A Message From Jocelyn
Hello, I’m Jocelyn and it is my passion to support you in living the fullest life possible. It is my pleasure to offer services that help you care for your body and mind so you can be the best version of yourself!
I’ve been interested in holistic healthcare since I was about twelve years old and I had my first experience with chiropractic—which is what I was intent on studying until I found out about acupuncture. My first experience with acupuncture helped me find relief from aches and pains related to a motor vehicle accident. When I found out that there was a local school, Midwest College of Oriental Medicine (MCOM), I just had to learn more about acupuncture and all the modalities of Oriental Medicine. After completing my bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee, I went on to complete a second bachelor’s degree in nutrition and a master’s degree in Oriental Medicine from MCOM.
My focus is on you, my patient. It is my goal to educate, guide, and facilitate treatment to relieve your symptoms, help you to regain your vitality, and prevent sickness and disease before it begins. I can best be described as a general practitioner or family practitioner. While many find joy in specialization, I love the challenge of diagnosing and treating a wide variety of health concerns. I love it when I see families pursuing a healthy lifestyle together. There is strength in unity and just like healthy individuals bring that influence to their families, healthy families have the power to change a whole community.
My treatment style is eclectic because my desire is to find the most effective treatment plan for each person; therefore I will draw from as many tools as I have in my toolbox to reach the goal defined in our treatment plan. I offer nutritional recommendations, Chinese herbal supplements, vitamin and mineral supplements, acupuncture, and manual therapies. I welcome you to the healing path and look forward to meeting you soon!
What Does An Acupuncture Therapy Plan Look Like?
Depending on your goals, the depth of the issues you want to resolve, and the intensity of your wellness plan you will find that no two therapy plans are identical. However, when beginning your work with our acupuncturist, everyone will need to schedule a 120 minute initial visit and a 75 minute follow up visit. In these two first sessions the two of you will put together a detailed evaluation, history and plan with plenty of one-on-one time for questions, education, and treatment. Depending on your needs, there may lots of homework in terms of lifestyle practices and/or several vitamins and herbs to familiarize yourself with taking.
After your initial visits, clients can expect a treatment plan that is more frequent at the beginning. As your body ‘holds the effects’ of the treatments for longer and longer timeframes, the treatments will be spaced further and further apart. In this way your acupuncture plan works with your own healing force to first impact a therapeutic change and then gradually allow your body to maintain a healthy condition on its own. Jocelyn will commonly recommend coming for acupuncture treatments twice a week for 3-5 weeks to gain a healing momentum. That frequency is stepped-down as fast as you are able to remain symptom free without treatment. Once your goals are met, she then recommends staying on a seasonal maintenance plan to maintain a good welleness relationship and keep ahead of any issues before they become more deeply problematic. This maintenance plan is generally three or four visits a year.
