Acupuncture, Back Pain, Stress.

Acupuncture relieves, back pain, stress and the emotional ups and downs we have in life.  How does this happen?

When the energy, (energy and “QI” are synonyms) flows easily in the body, our energy and our physical body come into balance.  Pain and discomfort are relieved.  The muscles relax.  Blood flow improves.  Nutrients are delivered.  Wastes are removed.  Conversely, when we are tense, uptight, stressed for this reason or that the opposite occurs.  What starts as a small discomfort intensifies until we have a constant ache.  When we try to avoid the ache, this creates even more imbalance because we tense up against the pain, against the discomfort.  In essence our avoidance creates more pain, even though temporarily we might feel less. There is a tendency to believe if we get one more possession, one more facial, one more temporary feel good experience, watch one more movie, have a drink, etc etc  that this will solve the problem.

By the time, a disc bulges, or becomes herniated or we pull a muscle, we erroneously believe the problem is JUST physical.  Why? Because we did not pay enough attention to what we were feeling when the discomfort was small. So now, we pay a larger price now.

Acupuncture alleviates the energetic imbalance.  This is a great start in self care and healing.  Adopting a healthy life style, learning about the movement of energy in your body, what promotes feelings of relaxation and wellness, adopting this in your daily life is the permanent solution.

In my practice, I have a program where people who see me 2 times a week for 3 weeks in a row get better.  I have a 98% success rate with people who make this commitment, over the last 15 years.  Not all people need to come this frequently in the beginning.  Those that do and adopt a healthier lifestyle get better.

Your health is priceless.  You spend your money on this and that.  You spend money to maintain your automobile and home.  Do you not think that your body is worth this expense.  The value is enormous.

Acupuncture, Headaches, Migraine Headaches, Stress Relief.

Acupuncture Relieves Headaches and Migraines. Acupuncture is very relaxing.  The small filaments that we call needles are painlessly inserted into acupuncture points.  When these points are stimulated, or activated, energy flows along energy pathways (meridians) where there were previous blocks.

When relieving the pain and discomfort associated with headaches and migraine headaches, acupuncture works wonders.  There are many energetic causes for headaches and migraines.  In essence, there is either not enough energy (qi) going to an area, or there is a lot of energy in an area that is blocked.  Acupuncture works by increasing the amount of energy available to and allow energy to flow where it had been blocked.  Does this make sense?  Please feel free to send us an email or to call us for clarification.

In addition to relieving the pain from Headaches and migraines, Acupuncture is very relaxing.  People feel invigorated. refreshed and relaxed after a treatment.  When we feel this way all of our activities are easy and our sense of wellness are improves.

Acupuncture – The Benefits and Versatility

The Versatility of Acupuncture

No-one expects a car to run without being properly maintained. No-one expects to ignore their own dental care and avoid problems with their teeth and gums.  What regular preventive acupuncture treatment can do is prevent small imbalances from becoming large illnesses and diseases.  It’s an investment in your future and current health and well-being.  The return on your investment is tremendous

If you are currently is discomfort, there is a wide range of health and well-being concerns that acupuncture and Chinese medicine address.  In my 35 years of practice, both as an acupuncturist and an R.N., the diversity of needs successfully treated with acupuncture is extremely wide and deep.  For example, women have been able to get pregnant when they were struggling, as well smoothing out the menstrual cycle and menopause.

Children and teens who’ve been diagnosed with hyperactivity, emotional distress: including anger, sadness, depression. and anxiety have returned to “normal” with ACUPUNCTURE alone,  without drug and medication intervention, much to their and their parents’ relief.  The same emotional issues in adults are also treated successfully with acupuncture.

As we age, we all too often experience joint pains, back pain, headaches, sleeping disorder, high blood pressure and a host of chronic conditions, which acupuncture alleviates.

The list goes on from here:

  • PTSD
  • Skin rashes
  • Headaches
  • Sinusitis
  • Asthma
  • Emphysema
  • IBS
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Sexual Dysfunction
  • Auto Immune Condtions
  • Addiction

Acupuncture and Chinese medicine help to manage chronic illness and reduces, if not eliminates, suffering.  When Chronic physical and emotional states are not addressed, they become worse. The good news is that what will become worse if left untreated gets better when we address the situation.  The situation is your energy, your vital life force.  Our energy system is similar to what I mentioned earlier regarding your car. To feel good and to run well, you need to maintain and repair your energy, just like you do with your car.
