Grampians lure for Marie

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

Stawell res­i­dents can en­joy the ben­e­fits of an­cient Chi­nese medicine prac­tice with a new acupunc­ture clinic open­ing in the city’s Post Of­fice Ar­cade.

Marie As­selin is orig­i­nally from Mon­treal, Canada, and af­ter work­ing in health clin­ics in Kyabram, the Flin­ders Ranges and Alice Springs, de­cided to open Grampians Acupunc­ture clinic in the Wim­mera.

She and her part­ner made the move af­ter be­ing at­tracted to the Grampians, where they had no­ticed a lack of al­ter­na­tive medicine op­tions.

Ms As­selin said she was ded­i­cated to mak­ing health ser­vices eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble to ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties.

She has worked in the health field since 2005, ini­tially com­plet­ing a psy­chol­ogy de­gree in Mon­treal be­fore gain­ing acupunc­ture and Chi­nese medicine qual­i­fi­ca­tions.

Acupunc­ture is a prac­tice that in­volves in­sert­ing thin, ster­ile nee­dles un­der the skin to ad­dress a va­ri­ety of health con­di­tions.

Acupunc­tur­ists also use meth­ods such as cup­ping, elec­tros­tim­u­la­tion, in­frared heat and mas­sage to help pa­tients.

Ms As­selin said typ­i­cal ben­e­fits of acupunc­ture treat­ments, sup­ported by re­search and sci­ence, in­cluded im­proved sleep, en­ergy, di­ges­tion and mood but they could also help ad­dress many other con­di­tions.
