Welcome to our resources page. Here you will find information that could be of benefit to you and your health. It is meant to be evidence informed and unbiased. It is hoped that this page will succeed in creating awareness about what’s new in the world of health care, as well as, help promote a sense of independence and control when it comes to making health care choices. We believe in educating our patients so they are not only well informed, but are motivated to become lifelong active participants in achieving better health for themselves and their family.
This page will be updated periodically. It is a work in progress, but please check out what we have so far.
Hope Healing and Health welcomes Nona Nazari to the team!
Nona Nazari, R.Ac. BA DTCM RYT500+
Nona Nazari is a Registered Acupuncturist, receiving her doctorate of traditional Chinese medicine from the Tzu Chi International College of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Nona is also a registered yoga teacher, with more than ten years of experience under her belt.
As an acupuncture practitioner, Nona’s areas of special interest include treating patients with psychological conditions, such as anxiety and depression. In addition, she enjoys working with patients who have autoimmune disorders, pain syndromes, addictions, and chemical dependency issues. In her treatments, Nona uses some of the classical healing methods that are a part of Chinese medicine, which include cupping and moxibustion (a type of heat therapy).
Nona’s healing philosophy is to address all aspects of her patients—physical, emotional, and spiritual. She believes that in order to heal one dimension, all of the others must also be brought into balance. She says,
I believe that our bodies have the capacity to heal themselves when they are provided with the right tools,and Nona is committed to providing each patient with the right tools.
Nona’s education and skills are augmented by a number of professional experiences. As a part of her education, she studied in Taiwan, and has traveled around the world to study yoga with masters in the field. Nona has also worked with a mentor for several years, gaining knowledge and experience in treating patients with moxibustion. She volunteers at a seasonal moxibustion series, which involves treating patients who have a variety of health conditions over twelve weekends each year.
Nona spends her time outside of the clinic meditating and practicing yoga. She also enjoys being outdoors, especially in the winter. You can find her hiking in the mountains and spending time with her dogs—she’s a dog lover and is devoted to rescuing dogs that need a home.
