RESTORE | REVIVE | OPTIMIZE

 

For people who need balance, healing, regulation, and more.

acupuncture oriental herbology

A 3,000 year old healing technique of Traditional Oriental Medicine. The US National Institute of Health (NIH) has documented and publicized Acupuncture’s safety and efficiency for treating a wide variety of health conditions.

This science works to treat and stimulate the balanced flow of vital energy through the body. This energy flow is known as “Qi” and is essential to good health. Qi is responsible for our overall wellbeing, self regulation and healing potential. When it’s balance is deficient or obstructed, the body becomes vulnerable, diseased, imbalanced, and susceptible to illness or injury. It’s the harmonious flow of Qi that allows us to feel positive feelings of health and vitality physically, mentally, and emotionally.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

When an acupoint is stimulated, it influences the organs and functions that may be distant from that point. The needle insertion encourages the body’s own healing abilities.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

  • Acupuncture is not meant to be painful; however, not all acupoints are created equal. Some points are more sensitive than others and may cause you to feel pain or an ‘electric’ sensation.
  • Acupuncture is not an instantaneous treatment. It will take up to 24 hrs before you feel the full results from your session.
  • In order to ensure the success of your sessions, it is important to perform the specific treatment plan and amount of sessions recommended. Once symptoms have been resolved, monthly maintenance sessions may be recommended.
  • Stay hydrated and drink lots of water after your session. Try to avoid alcohol and caffeine for up to 24 hours.
  • Your acupuncture sessions may be enhanced when incorporating massage, aromatherapy, or any other service related to your concern at hand.

Treatment with acupuncture has been successfully documented in a wide variety of conditions.

    TRADITIONAL ACUPUNCTURE

    Acupuncture stimulates release of endorphins (the body’s natural pain-relieving neurohormones) through the insertion of needles into specific acupuncture points to encourage self natural healing. Acupuncture points are known to affect chemical neurotransmitters in the body and more than 2000 points are connected via pathways and meridians which our vital energy “Qi” flows throughout the entire body.

    AURICULAR ACUPUNCTURE

    Auricular Acupuncture is stimulation of key points on the external ear surface which correlate with other areas of the body. Like our brainmap, the ear holds a microsystem of the body and fine details of the anatomical, physiology and emotional body can be accessed and influenced to promote health and healing of various organ functions along with eliminating symptoms of insomnia, depression, indigestion, addiction, inflammation, pain, headaches or migraines, and autonomic symptoms.
