Working with the Qi of the body
Acupuncture involves the insertion of fine needles into specific points of the body to stimulate healing. These points might be on muscles that are in spasm and causing chronic or acute pain and disfunction. Or the points might be based on a meridian system, developed and expounded upon by the Chinese theory presented in the Huang Di Nei Jing or The Emperor’s Inner Canon. Acupuncture can help with
- Pain – acute or chronic
- Range of motion problems
- Digestive issues
- Women’s health issues
- Stress and Anxiety
This is not a complete list. If you are wondering if acupuncture can help you, please ask for a free 15 minute private consultation. I would be happy to determine if acupuncture can help your specific condition.
Manual therapy is the use of cupping, gua sha, magnets, ear seeds, or massage to help facilitate healing. It can be used with acupuncture or on its own. Often a patient is not at ease with needles. I understand that and can use one of these modalities for anyone who is anxious about acupuncture. However most people find acupuncture to be painless and even relaxing.
