Welcome to Pacific Healing Acupuncture and Massage with Emily Head, LAc,.
I am a Fort Bragg native, whose plans have always been to open my private practice right here in my home town.
I was drawn to Chinese medicine by the philosophy of compassionately treating the whole person, not just the disease or its symptoms. I work with each patient to promote greater balance and well-being by creating an individualized treatment plan - which may include acupuncture, massage, Tuina (Chinese bodywork), Chinese herbs, nutrition, lifestyle counseling and other techniques.
As my patient, I will involve you in the healing process - empowering you by clarifying the connection between the choices you make on a daily basis and how those choices affect your health - mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. My practice focuses on the comprehensive assessment and treatment of disharmony in the body. The resulting awareness, combined with the healing effects of Chinese medicine and acupuncture is extremely effective in the treatment of both acute and chronic disorders.
"It's far more important to know what person the disease has than what disease the person has."
Before starting acupuncture with Emily, I thought the pain would never end. Her gentle care not only helped with the pain, but has greatly reduced my chemical sensitivity. My results were so dramatic that my husband has started treatment & is having good results.- Carol I
Emily is a warm, and accomplished acupuncture practitioner. I am always both relaxed and refreshed after a treatment and my aches and pains are definitely diminished. I feel very well and considerably cared for by Emily. We are very lucky... in Fort Bragg.- Eleanor A, Little River Ca
Thanks to Emily's acupuncture, acupressure and massage during the delivery of our amazing baby girl, I was able to skip all drugs & medications. In just 6 hours we were blessed with our beautiful baby girl & Emily was there the entire time helping me. We are forever grateful to Emily!- Suzann L
I began to have some extreme backpain last year. I went to Emily for relief, one treatment would bring relief, I now drive over the hill to see Emily as much as possible. I (am) very thankful that I found Emily, just wished she lived in Willits.- Deb M
