Acupuncture is an incredibly simple and effective way to treat many conditions or maintain optimal health. Each treatment involves a traditional diagnosis using the time honoured methods of tongue, pulse and palpation diagnosis to formulate a treatment plan. Using biofeedback, acupuncture points are then selected to initiate vital energy required by the body to help restore health.
Acupuncture treats a range of health issues including chronic pain, asthma, emotional disorders (including depression and anxiety), insomnia, fertility and gynecological issues. Patients are encouraged to relax and take note of any sensations that may arise during the session - usually a warm buzzing feeling. Each session will take every person one step closer to health and vitality. Acupuncture gently restores the body's natural state of balance and to allow us to reach our true potential.
Oriental medicine has long recognized that health and vitality can be sustained over a lifetime by restoring balance within the body and supporting the natural production of essential hormones throughout life. In order to successfully treat the specific symptoms unique to each individual a holistic approach is taken. Combining acupuncture and herbs with lifestyle recommendations and energetic exercises to restore imbalances found in the body is fastest path to health.
According to Oriental Medicine, insomnia is considered a “shen” or spirit disorder. When the shen is unsettled it will lead to problems such as anxiety and insomnia. Shen disturbance is due to either to “ deficiency” ie insufficient nutrients in the body or “excess” ie an agitated personality/ overwork/stress. Regardless of your pattern, within a few short weeks your sleeping pattern should begin to re establish itself.
Acupuncture and auricular (ear) acupuncture can both be used when quitting smoking. Auricular points are selected for their ability to help block the body’s need for nicotine, control appetite (to avoid weight gain) and reduce cravings. They encourage the release endorphins which results in an immediate 75% reduction in cravings. Acupuncture points along the body are selected for their ability to stimulate the immune system and encourage lung tissue.
Emotional disorders, stress and sleeplessness can be stubbornly resistant to change as they often involve life style patterns which are deeply entrenched. Acupuncture can stimulate the production of serotonin, melatonin and many other brain chemicals needed for sleep, appetite and mood regulation. It’s ability to reduce cortisol production makes it a fantastic form of medicine to treat stress and any of it’s associated problems.
