Ancient Wisdom Comes to the Post Road

The Center for Seasonal Wellness has opened in Darien, offering natural solutions to various ailments for residents of Fairfield County and beyond.

Karen Hand is the founder and director of the new holistic center. She is a licensed acupuncturist in Connecticut, Massachusetts and New York and has been working with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and holistic wellness for over 18 years. Her “previous life” working on Wall Street impressed upon Hand the impact that stress and the environment has on people in today’s world. This led to her immersion and eventual licensure in Eastern medicine. In 2002, she chose to retire from Wall Street and begin her healing practice.

“There is so much we are exposed to in our lives today that is out of our control. I wanted my acupuncture practice to empower people with what we can do to optimize our health. Looking to the clues found in nature and the principles within each season, I found answers that every person can use to restore health and vitality,” says Hand.

Through acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, qigong and the use of essential oils, the Center for Seasonal Wellness focuses on the healing and reduction of pain related to such conditions as sports injuries, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, fatigue and brain fog. In addition, the center offers an annual seasonal membership, which includes specialized acupuncture treatments at the change of the seasons, along with herbs, recipes and essential oils related to each season.
