How does acupuncture work?
Acupuncture is the insertion of fine needles into the body at specific points. Acupuncture is empirically proven effective in the treatment of specific disorders. When balance is disturbed due to trauma, poor diet, medications, stress, hereditary conditions, environmental factors, or emotional issues, pain and/or illness results. We use sterilized packaged disposable needles. The amount of treatments needed depends on the duration, severity, and nature of each individual’s complaint. Many acute conditions may only require a single treatment, whereas some degenerative conditions may require more than one treatment.
Herbal Medicine and Essential Oils:
Chinese herbal medicine prescribes natural herbs or Essential Oils based on a complex science of physiology and pathology. Each herb prescription has a specific interaction with the body. Herbs can be prescribed in conjunction with any service but are always optional.
Tui Na (Chinese Medical Massage), Medical Massage using Deep Tissue, Myofascial and Trigger Point Release, Pregnancy Massage (Pre and Post Natal) are offered.
Reiki is a Japanese technique that can be used for stress reduction and relaxation. Reiki therapy utilizes spiritual or universal energy to assist the healing process. During a “hands-on treatment” the practitioner places his or her hands on the clients body (the client remains fully dressed lying comfortably on a massage table) and allows Reiki (universal energy) to assist in the healing. The client will usually experience relaxation and peacefulness and may feel warmth and other very subtle pleasant sensations. A session generally will last about 40 minutes, but can be done in as little as 15 or as much as 60 minutes. Reiki is used along with mainstream medicine to contribute to a person’s overall sense of well-being.”
