Cynthia Zanti Jabs, L.Ac., Instructor
I have practiced East Asian Healing Arts for three decades, mainly Acupuncture and Qi Gong. I love seeing how these powerful tools gently untangle troublesome symptoms that affect our bodies, minds and spirits. We learn from the Ancients that working WITH the laws of nature can literally unlock our capacity to heal, even when serious illness or traumatic injuries have blocked this for years.
My 'specialty' is creating ‘take-home’ practices to help clients further their own healing processes. This enhances hands on treatments and sometimes also work with remote consults.
Medicine at its best is not just about relieving symptoms. Needles, words, essential oils, music and movement practices, all of these help us recover the person we're here to be. Our symptoms often guide our way - and fade away as we find it.
I treasure the seasonal framework of Asian healing arts. Unfolding the gifts of each season in turn reconnects us with the cycles of nature and lets us address specifics without losing sight of the whole. I believe this is becoming more essential than ever to all aspects of health and healing. You can read my blogs about Healing with the Seasons at Ruscombe.com.
My teaching over more than two decades has included acupuncture students (Maryland University of Integrative Medicine), medical students (Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine) and beginning to advanced students of Qi Gong thru local colleges, churches and recovery centers. I am certified by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine to teach credit classes for acupuncture practitioners.
