My name is  Dr. Jennifer Moffitt, creator of Polyvagal Acupuncture (TM).  PVA is a unique approach that incorporates the principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) with the latest developments in neuroscience, biochemistry, and myofascial theory. This method is grounded in a deep understanding of how the body’s systems are interconnected, with a particular focus on the nervous system’s role in health and emotional regulation.

What is Polyvagal Acupuncture?

Polyvagal Acupuncture is the clinical application of Polyvagal Theory, which emphasizes the role of  vagus nerve in managing physiological states and supporting the healthy  function of the autonomic nervous system.  By aligning this theory with precise acupuncture techniques, we engage specific meridians to enhance the body's natural healing responses and promote neuroplasticity. Recent advances in understanding how the brain and nervous system can reorganize and adapt are integrated into our practice, creating an optimal environment for neurological healing.

This approach is particularly relevant for addressing chronic pain, neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s and stroke, and the impacts of trauma like PTSD.

The brains ability to rewire itself and create new connections is called neuroplasticity.  Polyvagal Acupuncture uses acupuncture, tissue work  like massage and therapeutic exercise to enhance the brain's natural ability to lay down new pathways.  By refining the body's reflexive responses, Polyvagal Acupuncture supports a comprehensive path towards recovery and well-being  even with PTSD, demyelinating disease and stroke.  

These techniques are extremely effective for orthopedic injuries that have become chronic, or chronic nerve pain.  Neuroplasticity allows us to retrain vital movement pathways so that movement and balance are restored.  

We invite you to explore how Polyvagal Acupuncture can support your journey towards better health.

For more complex cases, particularly trauma, this is a healing journey.  if I am not the right fit, I will refer you to a provider who may be of more help in treating your condition.        __________________________________
