How should we view Chinese Medicine as Christians? Is it a faith based medical practice? What are the origins of the modalities and what do they entail? Cynthia speaks with Fr. Konstantine Eleftherakis today to answer your questions about this ancient method of healing. They talk about the true definition of “energy”, where to draw the line with some practices, and how to find someone who can help without getting into anything “weird!”
Rev. Fr. Konstantine Eleftherakis has served for over 15 years as an Orthodox Priest in the Greek Archdiocese of America. He is the current Prioistamenos of Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church in Scranton, PA, where he has served for over ten years. He and his wife of 20 years, Presbytera Maria, are the parents of seven children ranging from the ages of 18 – 10 months. Fr. Konstantine is a Pennsylvania licensed and national board certified Practitioner of East Asian Medicine. His main interest lies in the use of classical Chinese herbal formulas in the treating of chronic illnesses, as well as the study of classical texts for modern medical use. ATHOS Wellness (Acupuncture & Therapeutic Herbology Of Scranton), Fr. Konstantine’s budding Chinese Medicine practice, serves to assist in the continued physical, emotional, and spiritual health of the local community in North East Pennsylvania, along with continuing to serve the needs of the local Orthodox Christian faithful of Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church.
