Interview with Talia Dahms, an Acupuncturist in Encinitas
“The greatest mistake in the treatment of diseases is that there are physicians for the body and physicians for the soul, although the two cannot be separated.” – Plato
I caught up with Talia Dahms, an acupuncturist and herbalist at Dahms Acupuncture here in Encinitas, California, and got to talk with her a lot about what she does. In our interview, she explains what acupuncture is, (basic explanation here) and how it benefits the mind and body. She explains many of the treatments that are available when you visit her, and how often you should come for sessions. I had many questions about pain during acupuncture, but Talia did a great job describing the experience you receive when working with her.
Talia initially became interested in acupuncture in high school and college. She went to school for four years to receive her masters degree and has taken an exam to become a licensed acupuncturist. She now sees many clients at her practice for pain, digestive issues, insomnia, or other ailments. Some people come to just stay healthy and maintain their results. Many clients start with a massage or chiropractic session, and then enter the world of acupuncture once they are aware of its many benefits.
The services Talia provides includes:
Electro-stimulation Acupuncture (e-stim)
Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage)
External Herbal Treatment (liniment, poultice)
The cost for acupuncture is about the same as chiropractic services, and can make you feel incredible. (Read more about cost and payment here.) Talia is also an herbalist, and she provides tablets and raw herbs to clients to help issues within the body as well.
If you have ever thought about acupuncture before, make sure to stop in to Talia’s location in Encinitas. She is happy to answer any questions and talk you through the process, and how you will feel throughout.
