Serve Daily - - FOSTERING GROWTH -

Con­grat­u­la­tions to Nina Isaac­son of Heal­ing Points Acupunc­ture for be­ing elected Fe­bru­ary’s Busi­ness of the Month. Re­cently mem­bers of the Span­ish Fork-Salem Area Cham­ber of Com­merce met at Nina’s Span­ish Fork clinic across the street from the post of­fice for lunch, cake and a round of ap­plause. Keep­ing a small al­ter­na­tive medicine prac­tice run­ning suc­cess­fully is no easy task and Isaac­son has done it well, treat­ing over 1,000 pa­tients each year right here in our home town.

Isaac­son’s love of acupunc­ture started when her life came to a grind­ing halt with two her­ni­ated discs in her back. As a busy wife and mother of 17 adopted chil­dren, she couldn’t af­ford to be off her feet, on lots of pain med­i­ca­tion or deal­ing with back surgery. A friend sug­gested acupunc­ture, and her life changed for­ever. She lit­er­ally had mirac­u­lous ef­fects from her treat­ments and de­cided she wanted to help oth­ers the same way. Her whole fam­ily moved to Hawaii for four years where Isaac­son earned a mas­ter’s de­gree in Ori­en­tal Medicine. Then they came back home to open an acupunc­ture clinic in Span­ish Fork in 2009. Af­ter six years of ex­pe­ri­ence, she loves acupunc­ture even more.

Be­sides the joy of see­ing peo­ple smile and move bet­ter as their health im­proves, Isaac­son loves the peo­ple she meets. They come into her life and bless her with their own wis­dom. The Span­ish Fork-Salem Area Cham­ber of Com­merce has been in­stru­men­tal in help­ing her meet many amaz­ing peo­ple who have men­tored her in busi­ness prac­tices and pro­vide role mod­els for the kind of per­son she wants to be. Span­ish Fork has the best kind of peo­ple and Isaac­son hopes to live here for the rest of her life.

How does acupunc­ture work? Acupunc­ture nee­dles are not what most of us know as “nee­dles.” They are very thin wires that sep­a­rate the tis­sues of the body rather than punc­tur­ing. Acupunc­ture is not a be­lief sys­tem. Nee­dles disturb the elec­tri­cal en­ergy of cells where the re­sis­tance to the flow of elec­tric­ity is lower. Thus the re­sponse to a nee­dle is more mag­ni­fied than in tis­sue ad­ja­cent to th­ese points. Elec­tric­ity flows through the body much like wa­ter; it fol­lows the path of least re­sis­tance. If we can boost that flow by stim­u­lat­ing spe­cific points, we can cre­ate heal­ing from things like ad­dic­tion, anx­i­ety, joint pain, headaches, carpal tun­nel, stroke and in­fer­til­ity. It is safe, gen­tle and ef­fec­tive. Visit Isaac­son’s web­site at to learn more.
