that the symbol I've chosen for my practice of Acupuncture &
Oriental Medicine is the lady slipper
There is a legend among a Native
American tribe that the lady slipper grows in the northern woods to
mark the courage and strength of a small girl who lived there long
ago - a girl who braved a snowstorm to get medicinal herbs when the
villagers became ill. She lost her moccasins and left
anguished footprints along the path, which the following Spring
became lined with flowers that came to be known as the moccasin
flower; or lady slipper.
It is a sweet and enduring image of
healing and compassion.
