Garden Of Wellness is a full-service Traditional Chinese Medicine clinic
serving Palm Springs and the greater Coachella Valley. Founded by
Beatrice Moncrief, M.S., LAc. The clinic treats many types of conditions,
encompassing physical as well as emotional  imbalances. Beatrice
Moncrief has helped many patients with various types of disorders
improve their health and wellbeing. See the Services page for a list of
illnesses treatable with acupuncture and Chinese herbs.
How Does Acupuncture Work?
Acupuncture is based on the ancient Eastern concept
of yin and yang as it relates to the human body. In
addition to the nerves and blood vessels, our body
has a system of vessels that carry a very subtle
energy, the Qi energy. The vessels are called the
meridians, and the Qi energy is actually life force
energy or bio-electric energy, which is carried to all
parts of the body.
Illness and disease often result when Qi energy is
blocked and imbalances are created in the flow of
energy through the meridians. Acupuncture releases
the blockages.
Beatrice Moncrief
M.S., LAc
Acupuncture manipulates this Qi energy by inserting needles into acupuncture
points. These points are located where the Qi of the meridians comes to the
body’s surface and can be accessed and manipulated. Treating these points can
resolve obstructions and accumulations, which manifest as pain or illness.
Acupuncture can stimulate the Qi flow, which will bring energy and circulation to
a weak body part and redirect Qi that does not flow to where it is intended. The
results can be subtle or  dramatic. The response varies from patient to patient
depending on their overall health and constitution. For example, it's clinically
demonstrated that patients with high blood pressure have their pressure
lowered with acupuncture, and patients with low blood pressure have their
pressure raised with acupuncture. The point is to
balance Qi for optimum health
and wellbeing.
Determining The Treatment Protocol
With acupuncture, the number of treatments necessary to improve a patient's
health, energy and feeling of well-being varies from person to person and
according to different types of diseases and illnesses, and the state of the
patient's overall health and energy. Because we are working with your body's
own energy to enable healing, the frequency and intensity of the treatment vary
from person to person.  Generally speaking, patients should expect to receive
5-10 treatments to allow the protocol to take effect. Some patients feel immediate
improvement with the first treatment. With serious illnesses or chronic cases, the
patient might need to receive acupuncture for a longer period of time.
Acupuncture treatments are cumulative. Over time the patients will need less
frequent treatments as their health improves. Many patients experience
improvement with weekly treatments. After health has been optimized, a monthly
"tune-up" treatment would be advisable. Even when patients feel relatively
healthy, everyone is encouraged to come at least once a quarter as the seasons
change to improve their overall energy level and strengthen the immune system.










The Role Of Herbs
Ancient Chinese doctors discovered that many herbs and plants have healing
properties, with each herb being beneficial for certain types of illnesses and
disorders. Chinese herbal formulas have a powerful effect on improving mood,
energy and well being.  Beatrice is a licensed herbalist as well as acupuncturist,
and she uses both tools to promote health. Chinese herbs are categorized by
their energetic properties and affinity to organ systems, which allows herbalist to
customize and fine tune herbal prescriptions for each patient.  Herbs are a key
component to promoting health.

Needling and Acupuncture Needles
Sterile, disposable acupuncture needles are inserted into acupuncture points.
Because the needles are so thin the insertion often goes unnoticed. It can be felt
like a small pinch followed by a sensation of tingling or mild pressure. The
needles remain in place for about twenty minutes, while the patient rests. The
treatment usually feels very relaxing and most people are pleased to find that
sessions are not uncomfortable and even look forward to them.
