Episode 12: Emotional Healing & Acupuncture, Part II

On today’s show, Brodie talks with a long-time patient, Cori. We talk about how acupuncture helped Cori realize just how much she was expecting of herself, mentally, emotionally and physically, and the effects it was having on her body and her mind. Cori’s story is a powerful one of habit change, self-healing, and accepting one’s boundaries in pursuit of a healthier, happier life. When injury and illness literally knocked her off her feet, Cori found the strength to seek solutions, acknowledge unhealthy patterns, and listen to what her body was telling her.

Special thanks go out to Cori for the great idea to create this 3-part series on emotional healing.
