ACUPUNCTURE

 

WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE


Acupuncture is a complementary medical practice, originating thousands of years ago in Asia that entails stimulating certain points on the body to help treat various health conditions. I incorporate Traditional Chinese Medicine, Kiiko Matsumoto Style (Japanese) Acupuncture and Trigger Point Therapy in your Acupuncture session.

 

Acupuncture can be a stand-alone treatment or you can combine it with other practices, including BodyTalk and/or Western Medicine.  This modality is wonderful for people of all ages, including children, as Acupuncture can be done with needles and without needles.

Acupuncture naturally enhances your well-being by looking at your system as a whole.  In Chinese & Japanese Medicine, the body is comprised of a series of meridians, Qi (energy), and blood. In balancing these systems, a person can attain a sense of homeostasis.

MY INTEGRATIVE HEALTHCARE APPROACH


For each session, I incorporate my knowledge of various modalities, including Traditional Chinese Medicine, Japanese style Acupuncture & Trigger Point Therapy. I target very specific points that are needed for your healing session based on your priorities. As a Certified BodyTalk Practitioner, I can use BodyTalk, a priority based healing system, to determine the Acupuncture points that are needed for your body at the time of the session. BodyTalk also assists you in attaining deeper relaxation and supports your body’s natural ability to heal itself.
