Welcome to Red Sage Acupuncture. My name is Jann Turpin and I'm a Jacksonville acupuncturist providing acupuncture and herbal therapy for pain, as well as a variety of other conditions.
I’d like to welcome you to my web site where you will find information on acupuncture, herbs and COM (Contemporary Oriental Medicine). COM has been formulated over sixty years of clinical practice from wisdom that reaches beyond the beginnings of recorded history. While grounded in ancient medical knowledge, COM has been developed further to manage the challenges of the modern world. Training in COM creates a practitioner who can listen in many ways, not only to what people say, but also to how they say it, and even to what they avoid or don’t say. COM practitioners draw upon well-honed diagnostic skills - pulse diagnosis, combined with an analysis of symptoms and medical history - giving them an ability to understand what a patient truly needs.
Symptoms are messages from the body, indicating the nature of disharmony within the body. Treating symptoms and ignoring their true cause could ultimately create aggravation and further disharmony. For true healing to be achieved, symptoms must be examined and understood, and taken in the larger context of a patient’s condition. If a patient has a fever, his body is attempting to expel an external pathogenic factor. Suppression of the fever, while it may alleviate some unpleasant symptoms, will inhibit the body’s healing mechanism, allowing the toxin to penetrate more deeply. It is only when the source of the fever, in this case the pathogen, is addressed that recovery can begin. Symptoms are translated into conditions, and their causes, rather than their manifestations, take priority in treatment.
With this clarity and depth of understanding, the patient and practitioner together can formulate strategies to make true, lasting change possible: change that can alter the fabric of one’s life. This is healing, as it ought to be.
I provide this information so you can learn how to benefit from this natural and effective form of health care that has been helping people thrive for thousands of years..
