Acupuncture & Women’s Health

Anna Ritner, L.Ac.

Bloom’s licensed Acupuncturist, Anna Ritner L.Ac., provides quality and compassionate holistic care utilizing the wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine, western medicine and nutrition. Anna incorporates energy medicine, massage, and a whole lot of love in her practice. She loves working with women of all phases and stages.

Acupuncture is one of the oldest healing practices in the world. It’s a powerful holistic medical system that works with your body, treating the root of your concerns to make real and lasting changes for you.  By placing sterile, hair-thin needles in specific points on your body, we activate the body’s own capacity to heal and in doing so, create more balance, harmony and health. Acupuncture and herbal medicine can help you gain and keep the health and wellness that you deserve.

My Philosophy

 

You are a unique individual, and accordingly, you will flourish when you develop a sustainable wellness mindset that is suited to your specific needs, lifestyle, and constitution. My job is to help you get to that sweet spot. Whether you’re a busy mom scrambling for alone time, a woman who feels something in your body is just “off,” or someone who is facing a major health event, my philosophy is about cultivating self-love and intuition rather than punishment or force. Our bodies do a beautiful job of healing when we remove the impediments and give ourselves whatever space we have available to repair. I will spend the time truly getting to know you: body, mind, and spirit, as oftentimes even the most straightforward physical symptoms are complicated by emotional stress. Then, using my broad diagnostic skill set in Eastern & Western functional medicine, I will establish a pattern of underlying disharmony that is based on the “branches” (your current symptoms) as well as the “roots” (the origin) of the issue.

 

My Approach

 

To truly heal at the root, it is important to understand how you arrived where you are, and what patterns and habits might unconsciously be sustaining your condition. We will immediately start treating the symptoms you might be experiencing, and with some time, attention, and commitment on your part, I will assist you in shifting away from the origins of imbalance using nutrition changes, mindfulness, herbs and supplements.

During our 90-minute initial visit, we will fully review your health history and your goals, and afterward, I will design for you a personalized care plan that includes recommendations for any number of treatments needed, herbal medicine & medical-grade supplements, mindfulness and lifestyle practices and recommendations for any relevant lab testing. During 60-minute follow-up visits we will spend time measuring your progress, and then you will receive a treatment based on what is needed that day. Most people need at least 4 visits before they start seeing lasting results, and 6-8 visits for more complex cases. After that, I will see you occasionally for tune-up visits or seasonal adjustments–or as any new issues arise that require attention.
