Notes from Your Acupuncturist is a collection of reflections on healing, acceptance and self-love, based on inspiration from my patients and colleagues. My name is Alexa Bradley Hulsey and I’ve been studying and practicing acupuncture for over two decades. This medicine is about so much more than needles; it’s about finding and understanding your place in the universe. I love sharing the the beauty of it with others.

I send out reflections about acupuncture, or broader health and wellness topics, or sometimes nothing in particular. Written notes are often based on questions from my patients. Podcast episodes feature enlightening conversations with other healers. You might get an occasional acupressure video demo from me, and sometimes I’ll turn the tables and ask you a question.

Subscribers usually hear from me about once a week.

I think of these dispatches as paper airplanes; some may land close to you and others may sail past. Once a paper airplane reaches you, it belongs to you—you can crumple it up and toss it out, flatten it out and read it again, or fold it back up and aim it toward a new destination. It’s yours to do with as you wish. My hope is that you will find something useful, interesting, or inspiring here.

You can see past notes on the website and snippets of my favorite notes on Instagram at @notesfromyouracu

I hope these reflections will invite some self-care into your own life. They’re meant to be shared, so please pass them along! Thanks for joining me.
