CHRONIC PAIN RELIEF
Pain is something we all experience at some point in our life. Whether the experience is triggered by an injury, trauma, illness, disease, systemic imbalance or emotional upset, the sensation of pain can take on a variety of manifestations. Acupuncture works by eliciting physiological changes at the local, regional (spinal cord) and general (brain) level, thereby decreasing the pain response at the sensory-neural pathway. Paired with additional Chinese Medical modalities, including moxibustion and Tuina, Acupuncture is able to provide varying degrees of relief from long-standing pain.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine has a long history within the discipline of Womxn’s Health. From fertility to postpartum; menstrual health to menopause, the benefits of treatment can increase blood flow, decrease pain, benefit the balance of hormones, and provide the education necessary for womxn from all walks of life to feel holistically empowered.
STRESS & ANXIETY RELIEF
The rigor and demands of daily life can often lead to serious mental and emotional challenges. When given the opportunity to slow down, our nervous system responds accordingly. When acupuncture and Chinese herbal remedies are applied, the stress response that usually taxes the adrenal and immune systems and leads to feelings of anxiousness, decreases to restore a sense of calm and clarity.
Utilizing a 5-point auricular protocol (acupuncture points on the ear) known as NADA provides an accessible approach to addition recovery. This protocol has been used in a variety of settings from international relief efforts to rehabilitation centers around the world.
In an era of climate crisis, consideration must be given to the various environmental factors that can influence people over a lifetime. When used together, acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine act as allies to the immune system, which, in turn, helps us to develop greater resiliency.
