About Oak Tree

The Oak Tree As a Symbol of Our Clinic

I adopted the Symbol of the Oak Tree to represent what Healing Touch Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine is about when I established my clinic in 1998.   The Oak Tree represents to me:

Strength, Great Beauty, Deep Roots, Being Grounded, Able To Weather Storms.

Through our clinic we help each person find (or regain) their own personal strength, great beauty, deep roots, groundedness and ability to weather their own storms.   Dr. Judy Chiasson, Doctor of Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine

The Oak Tree is also a strong personal symbol for me.  I grew up in a three generational household in a home with a very large water oak tree in the front yard.  When I was born the oak tree had a trunk that was over four feet in diameter and dominated our entire front yard.  I experienced tremendous joy being with this beautiful tree as I grew up and throughout my life. 

In 1993 I began my studies in Oriental Medicine and my very special tree met its demise shortly afterwards.   My clinics, Healing Touch Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine, and Affordable Acupuncture Community Clinic, are my continuation of that very special tree.
