Welcome to the web site of Barbara Connor, M.Ac., L.Ac. and John Connor, M.Ac. It brings us great joy to be able to help you to have and maintain optimal health with proper nutrition, herbs, individualized diet, acupuncture and craniosacral acupuncture. Our acupuncture practice is located in Durham, NC. (Please note: John Connor has retired from the practice of acupuncture as of June 1, 2024.)

We treat a wide variety of conditions very successfully using a combination of acupuncture, craniosacral acupuncture and botanical and nutritional medicine. We use the best of  Traditional Chinese medicine, herbal and nutritional medicine.

Bring About Harmony and Balance with Acupuncture and Nutrition

Barbara and I emphasize the practice of ‘healthy medicine’, which is aimed at the root source of ill-health, with the primary focus being to bring about harmony and balance throughout the body using craniosacral acupuncture together with botanicals, nutrients and diet. When approaching diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and other chronic illnesses as well as delaying aging, it is important to formulate a balanced protocol that addresses both the characteristics of the disease as well as the energetic weaknesses of the individual. It is when the energy of the disease overrides one’s internal healing ability that it impacts on one’s health and causes serious damage. These two dynamic aspects, namely, the ‘disease energy’, and one’s internal healing energy, should be addressed with an understanding of the relationship, dynamics, and interplay that co-exist between them.

It is infinitely better to hope for the best than to fear the worst.  — Meher Baba
