Zionsville Current highlights Lafayette acupuncture by Angelica Kokkalis
On July 17, Zionsville Current published an article about acupuncture and Eastern medicine called From East to West. Dr. Kokkalis spoke about the arrogance of Western medicine due to it’s tendency to dismiss Eastern medicine even though it’s been used for much longer. “We need to be more humble as doctors; we are servants of people and God,” she is quoted as stating.
Angelica recalls her first experience with Eastern medicine in Greece where as a child her mother used alternative Eastern treatments that ultimately healed her of seizures. More on this story can be found in Angelica’s post, Merging East with West, but it was ultimately this experience that turned her onto the value of Eastern medicine, but it wasn’t until she discovered acupuncture in a French magazine that she found her life’s path.
“The seizure (and her unique recovery) brought up my interest in wellness, specifically in solving the problem rather than just management of disease,” she said. “The magazine had a face in it with acupuncture needles, and that was intriguing. I decided that’s what I wanted to do.”
She tells about her studies in China and the obstacles she had to overcome with the Greek and Chinese governments in order to be able to do that. Her desire to be an ambassador between East and West medicine overcame the objections of the Chinese government and allowed her to stay, study, and graduate with honors.
Dr. Angelica Kokkalis now practices acupuncture in Indianapolis near Zionsville and in West Lafayette, Indiana (view exact locations). To call for an appointment, dial 765-497-0817.
