About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese healing modality, using the body’s own natural healing powers to help create balance and wellness in the body. Acupuncture is akin to an energetic suggestion to gently and effectively assist the individual’s own energetic patterns to move in a smooth and vital way. By using very thin needles, the width of two human hairs, the energetic system can be directed creating continuity without. Acupuncture works with energetic meridians, or pathways throughout the body, which, in turn affects the entire body, including your mind and emotions. This kind of support can create an ease of life as well as a calm lift in spirits and relaxation.

Acupuncture can treat a variety of symptoms including health concerns that are already being experienced, as well as working very preventatively. As we all live, we accrue a bit of stagnation just through everyday life. The energetic meridians are like waterways, and acupuncture can be used to maintain the pathways to keep them free of debris so they can flow vibrantly. This helps the body to work in an efficient and healthful way, supporting all of the body systems for the optimal wellness. By restoring the natural movement of energy in the body, the body, mind and spirit can thrive, promoting vitality and wellness throughout. This ancient technique has been proven effective for thousands of years.

Five Element acupuncture is a form of Chinese Medicine that uses the guise of the Elements and Seasons to guide the ideology and treatment plan. By using the elements as a guide, 5-Element acupuncture goes a step deeper to look beyond purely the physical symptoms, to treat the constitution and the underlying imbalances, as to not just cover up the symptoms. This form of acupuncture uses the symptoms as a tool to get to know the body in a deeper way. If only the symptoms are treated without supporting the constitution and without taking a profound look at the individual, the likelihood of the symptoms returning is high. By using the symptoms as markers we learn how to best live in and with our physical form. When looking at the individual and considering the strengths and weakness, the entire being can be supported, decreasing discomfort and promoting a preventative, full spectrum approach to healing and wellness.
