Carolina Beach Community Acupuncture is offering invaluable services to the Pleasure Island area. A “holistic clinic,” that specializes in community acupuncture, offers yoga classes and produces their own herbal remedies. Now they are also happy to welcome Carolina Beach Massage Therapy as a wonderful new addition to the many ways they can help you to live a happy and healthy life. Lindsay Neese is the new owner of Carolina Beach Massage Therapy, located inside Carolina Beach Community Acupuncture. Lindsay has been a licensed massage and bodywork therapist since March 2006. She completed a 900 hour program at Miller-Motte College and received her Diploma in Massage Therapy in 2005. Lindsay also received her BFA from East Carolina University in 2001.
Lindsay is currently teaching Massage Therapy part-time in Wilmington, NC and running her practice, Carolina Beach Massage Therapy. She enjoys the combination of working with her clients and students to encourage & nurture a healthier lifestyle. Depending on the needs of each client, one or many of the different bodywork modalities are included into a treatment, such as; Swedish, Deep Tissue, Pre-natal, Hot Stone Therapy, Reflexology, Energy, Aromatherapy and integrating most into a session.
Carolina Beach Community Acupuncture offers acupuncture treatments to help resolve a variety of issues including but not limited to Pain Conditions, Sports Acupuncture, Fertility, Women’s Health Concerns, Internal Conditions, Pregnancy and Pediatrics. “Most US acupuncturists treat patients on tables in individual cubicles. This is not traditional in Asia, where acupuncture usually occurs in a community setting. In our clinic we primarily use recliners, clustered in groups in a large, quiet, soothing space. Treating patients in a community setting has many benefits: it’s easy for friends and family members to come in for treatment together; many patients find it comforting; and a collective energetic field becomes established which actually makes individual treatments more powerful. In some styles of acupuncture, the needles are removed after only a few minutes or after a half hour at most. The style of acupuncture we practice at CBCA allows patients to keep their needles in as long as they want, and the “right” amount of time varies from patient to patient. Most people learn after a few treatments when they feel “done”; this can take from twenty minutes to a couple of hours! Many people fall asleep, and wake feeling refreshed.”
Jeremy Linquist leads the team at Carolina Beach Community Acupuncture. “Jeremy graduated Summa Cum Laude with a Masters of Science in Traditional Oriental Medicine (MSTOM) from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine. He extended his studies at the Chengdu University Hospital in the Sichuan Province of China. He has treated patients at the UCSD Sports Medicine RIMAC Center, Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego, Vietnam Veterans Stand-Down, San Diego’s Seniors’ Clinic, and San Diego Hospice. During his four-year attendance at Pacific College, Jeremy served as Student Council President. He gained comprehensive and direct experience as an assistant to Matt Callison, L.Ac., a world-renowned sports acupuncturist and also for Karen Sulger, L.Ac. at the Acupuncture Continuum. His 3-year apprenticeship at the Acupuncture Continuum gave Jeremy experience treating orthopedic injuries, acute and chronic pain, male and female infertility, as well as a broad range of internal conditions.”
Also at Carolina Beach Community Acupuncture you will find Treayor Smith L.Ac., MSTOM. “Treayor studied at the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine (PCOM) in Chicago, Illinois. He has been studying and performing acupuncture since 2008. He was licensed in North Carolina in 2011, and is a member of the North Carolina Association of Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine. He uses various styles of acupuncture. He was trained primarily in TCM, and uses the balance method, motor point needling, scalp acupuncture, auricular acupuncture, and various others through his self study. He owes his acupuncture success in the clinic to his teachers Marie France-Collin, L.Ac. and Ziv Greenfield, L.Ac. for pushing him. His orthopedic acupuncture training was taught by Dave Vavrinchek, L.Ac. He has done internships in pediatrics, orthopedics, and with HIV patients at Project VIDA in Chicago, Il. He also participated in the “Great American Smoke-out” giving free auricular acupuncture to people trying to quit smoking. Treayor is also trained in the art of herbal medicine. Much of his studies are with traditional TCM herbal prescriptions, but he has an emphasis on Shang Han Lun style herbal prescriptions, and Oncology herbal treatments. His philosophies on eastern nutrition are due to the influence of Mitch Harris, L.Ac. who helped him understand that what you eat is medicine you will never have to take any pills, or fall ill with the proper diet. He enjoys treating a wide variety of patients and plans on never retiring. He feels very fortunate to have found a career where he can help people, and make an honest living for a very long time. His current track record of patients have come to him with menopause symptoms, thyroid problems, orthopedic, and emotional issues. He has treated a number of athletes including Olympians, and world champions.”
One of the best things about Carolina Beach Community Acupuncture is that they offer their community acupuncture sessions on a sliding payment scale that range from $20-$40. “The purpose of our sliding scale is to separate the issues of money and treatment; we want you to come in often enough to really get better and stay better! We understand that everyone’s situation is different, and our primary goal is to make acupuncture available to you as often as you need it.”
