Traditional Chinese Medicine to Promote Healing and Hope

Acupuncturist PortlandIt’s not everyone who goes looking for help from a practitioner using holistic medicine.  Whether your body is aching, your mind is frazzled, or your heart just feels like there’s a disconnect somewhere, you’ve discovered an important truth: It’s all connected.

It’s likely that you’ve heard the same recommendations from western medicine doctors over and over. Take this pill; try to reduce your stress levels; let’s run some more blood tests; let’s schedule an appointment with a therapist. Maybe nothing’s coming up abnormal, or maybe you’ve gotten an alarming diagnosis. Either way, you know it’s time to really start taking care of yourself like never before.

You are much more than the sum of your parts, far more than a set of symptoms that need treatment. You are a glorious being in progress, deserving of the help and healing you need to become your very best Self.

 

Driven by a Passion to Learn How to Use Holistic Medicine to Help People

Acupuncturist Portland

Aiden Seraphim learned early on that his deep desire to help others was a little different. From a young age, when he saw people suffering, he recognized that even the most heartbreaking circumstances could be transformed with a generous dose of hope and healing.

It was this desire to help people become whole that first drew him to study at Evergreen State College for a bachelor’s degree in Multicultural Counseling.  From there he worked with homeless youth struggling with a host of traumas and addictions, and while they responded well to his gentle and compassionate presence, he realized they needed more. They needed a modality that could bring healing to them as whole people, something that could help them mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually all at once.

At about that time, Aiden had a profound personal experience with acupuncture. Through this experience, he saw the power of this modality to access and touch him at the deepest levels. It was then that he knew he wanted to learn how to become a  Chinese Medicine Practitioner.

 

Time to Choose Where to Study Chinese Medicine

He participated in internships all over the Portland area, working with clients who suffered every physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual challenge imaginable. He also had the privilege of being part of both ends of the circle of life by working with expectant moms going through labor and even some patients facing the very end of their lives. What he found throughout all of this training is that the healing journey is deeply personal, and that the tools he’d learned through his Holistic Medicine training truly made a difference.

His thirst for understanding and passion for healing also spurs his commitment to being a practitioner. While not working with his clients, you might find him meditating, participating in a spiritual community, attending meditation retreats, traveling the world, enjoying nature, and cooking healthy food.
