Meet Anna

Anna Stancil, Energetic Balancing Practitioner

My name is Anna Stancil, and I am a certified Energetic Balancing Practitioner. I am currently completing my board exams for my acupuncture license, and I look forward to offering acupuncture services at A&A starting early this fall. In the interim, I will be offering Reiki sessions, as well as assisting both Abby and Christa in the clinic.

For as long as I can remember, people have been my passion and I have always had an undeniable feeling that helping others was my purpose.

I have a background in Psychology through my studies at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, though I ultimately chose to pursue a different path. I completed the Professional Energy Healing Program  at the Appalachia School of Holistic Herbalism in 2016 where I was trained in several healing modalities, including Reiki, Herbal Therapy, Polarity Therapy, and Chakra Balancing.

While completing this program, I worked as a residential counselor in two different psychiatric residential treatment facilities for teens. The energetic balancing training I received made me realize my goals to help and guide others through deep healing that shifts us from the inside out.

It was during this time that I started to explore and pursue my interests in Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine was transformational for me as a patient, and I felt the next step was to merge my passion for energetic healing practices with all the grounded wisdom that Chinese medicine has to offer. I received a Master in Acupuncture & Oriental Medicine from Daoist Traditions – College of Chinese Medical Arts , and today, I have the great honor of integrating all of these past experiences and learning into one healing practice.

My goal as your practitioner is to truly listen to you, establish your treatment goals, and empower you to transform. I love working with patients experiencing mental and emotional disharmonies, sleep issues, digestive issues, and women’s health, though the reach of Chinese medicine extends far beyond these specialties. 

Contact me to learn more about how I practice or schedule an appointment so we can explore your wellness path and  treatment options. I am so excited to meet you and offer my support on your journey.

What is Reiki Therapy?

Reiki and acupuncture have the same end-goal: restoring the body’s natural state of balance to promote healing. While acupuncture accomplishes this through the use of needles, Reiki therapy is administered through the hands of the practitioner. During a Reiki session, you can expect deep relaxation as the body’s parasympathetic nervous system is activated. Reiki therapy is beneficial for a variety of conditions, including pain, sleep disturbances, anxiety, chronic fatigue, and more.
