Grand Opening of Holistic Health Clinic in Greenville
GREENVILLE, S.C., August 1, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Dragonfly Acupuncture & Massage is celebrating its grand opening in Greenville, South Carolina. Owners Elizabeth Williams, LAc, and Kie Williams, LBMT, are offering acupuncture, massage, cupping, herbal medicine and lifestyle counseling services at their Wade Hampton Blvd. clinic.
Dragonfly Acupuncture & Massage specializes in treating acute and chronic pain, stress and anxiety. “We don’t treat symptoms or diseases - we treat people,” founder and acupuncturist Elizabeth Williams, LAc, says. “I spend 30 minutes or more talking to my patients on their first visit so that I can get a full picture of their health. I then use that information to create a comprehensive treatment plan to get to the root of their issues.”
Acupuncture and its adjunct therapies of massage, cupping and herbal medicine are used to treat all kinds of acute and chronic pain, including injuries, headaches, neck and shoulder pain, sciatica, arthritis and more. It is also used to address internal issues including anxiety, depression, digestive symptoms, allergies and women’s health conditions.
According to a recent (2017) study in Medical Acupuncture, military patients who used acupuncture for pain relief decreased opioid use by 45%, muscle relaxants by 34%, NSAIDS by 42% and benzodiazepines by 14%. The study concluded that “the number of opioid prescriptions decreased and patients reported improved symptom control, ability to function, and sense of well-being after receiving courses of acupuncture.”
Dragonfly’s massage therapist Kie Williams, LBMT, is the only therapist in the state of South Carolina to be certified in Esalen Massage. According to Esalen teacher Robin Fann-Costanzo, “The foundational Esalen technique includes long strokes, pauses, passive joint movement, rocking, compression and stretching. The approach, mindfulness, mind/body awareness and listening tie it all together.”
