Regina Walsh, D.Ac.

I’ve been in the Katonah/Bedford community for 25 years practicing Acupuncture and other forms of healing medicine. My practice has always centered on providing alternative approaches to help people deal with the challenges in their lives, whether body, mind or spirit. When I was first treated with acupuncture in 1988 it changed my life. I had been introduced to Tai Qi by a high school teacher. That began my curiosity with traditions other than my own. Then as I looked for deeper answers to my many questions for a happy and healthy life, I looked to both west and east for answers. Mindfulness, a wholistic balanced lifestyle, and resolving the emotions of the past with acupuncture as body, mind, spirit medicine. I then devoted myself to offering the same safe, non-judgmental healing relationship to others in need of personal care and attention to help guide them through often challenging life and medical decisions and conditions.

I am in Service to Health and Healing.
