How Can You Benefit?

Pediatrics


Acupunture is a safe and effective for children that can be done with or without needles. Acupuncture needles are very fine filaments and many children react to them with curiosity and ease.  From one to three acupuncture points are usually treated in a session.  Acupressure uses the same energy points and channels as those in acupuncture, but the points are stimulated with massage rather than needles.   Essential oils are another wonderful therapeutic option for children. Applying a drop of essential oil to an acupressure point enhances the treatment and improves circulation. Children enjoy the aroma and your family can learn an essential oil treatment to continue at home to further help your child. This ritual can facilitate healing and give parents a clear and effective method of helping their child feel better and become more self assured.

Pain and Injury Recovery

 

Acupuncture has been described as a process of blocking nerves and pain receptors in the body. This may be true, but there is much more to it. Pain is a complex issue and requires a strategic and comprehensive approach. Chinese medicine works to restore circulation, reduce inflammation and increase flexibility in muscles and connective tissues to help with sports injuries, post operative pain and chronic sore or weak areas. 

 

Inserting needles, applying heat or essential oils to acupuncture points combined with gentle body work can help speed recovery, improve circulation and help you feel better with no side effects.

 

Acupuncture can help speed recovery from surgery and heal scar tissue if used before and/or after procedures.

Mental & Emotional Health

 

Research shows evidence of the mind-body connection. In Chinese Medicine, there is no distinction between physical, mental and emotional health, as they are all aspects of a whole person. Discover how to keep moving forward in life no matter how you feel in the moment.

 

Psychiatrists and therapists often refer patients for acupuncture because it can profoundly support a person's ability to balance their emotions and help with anxiety and depression. For some people, chronic stress or emotional distress can lead to physical symptoms such as high blood pressure, headaches, fatigue, infertility, or insomnia. For others, physical challenges, such as chronic pain or rehabilitation after an injury can lead to anxiety or depression. Acupuncture is uniquely able to treat both levels of disease at once and create lasting improvement and understanding about the root of the issue.

 

Acupuncture can also support recovery from addiction, whether it be chemical or emotional in nature and can help with eating disorders.
