Unblocking Qi

Acupuncture, Stress Relief and Wellness

Acupuncture promotes the smooth flow of qi, of energy, in the body. When the energy channels become blocked, we tend to feel stressed. The feeling is like having anxiety, or a feeling of sluggishness, or feeling there’s not enough time. By unblocking the channels, the energy in your system becomes abundant, giving a sense of well being, confidence and vitality. This also promotes circulation of blood and vital fluids. This promotes health because the nutrients get distributed in the body via the blood, and toxins get removed. Physical health improves. Also, the mind becomes calmer and more relaxed as the the energy harmonizes and flows smoothly. We all love a peaceful mind.

Acupuncture, Emotions and Stress

Acupuncture will balance your energy. When your energy is balanced you’ll find that the emotional ups and downs you were experiencing will harmonize. You will feel more balanced, stress free, joyful and at peace.  Not only will your body relax, but you will also have more energy available to do the things you love.  The activities of daily life will become a breeze, not so much a chore.

Acupuncture, Stress, Wellness and the Holidays

Acupuncture Helps with holiday stress, and all forms of stress. When the Energy (the Qi) flows smoothly, everything feels better. There is a feeling of wellness. Little upsets get released before illness occurs.

Acupuncture and Allergy Relief

Medications for seasonal allergies are designed to relieve symptoms by suppressing the body’s reaction to an allergen. Acupuncture offers a natural alternative to address the actual cause of your allergic reaction.

The allergen is not the problem. The problem is the individual’s reaction to pollen, dust etc. The reaction is signaling a malfunction somewhere in the body’s system. With seasonal allergies the imbalance is in the immune system.

Acupuncture is a treatment that addresses the wellness of the whole person by promoting the healthy flow of Qi. Correcting this natural energy flow brings the immune system back into balance, eliminating the cause of seasonal allergy symptoms.

Acupuncture, Stress and Winter Holidays. 

Winter is the time when energy naturally slows down. It is cold. In this environment, it is the ideal time to rest and replenish our energy and our reserves of energy. Acupuncture helps to balance the speedy pace of life, especially around the holidays so we can come into balance; feel our best. When we are balanced and relaxed the body does not become ill. When ill, recovery is much faster and thorough. Wishing everyone a joyous season, a peaceful mind and balanced heart.

Acupuncture, Stress and Illness

Acupuncture balances the energy in the body.  The feeling is like floating in a calm harbor after being tossed around in a turbulent ocean.  Feelings of stress disappear.  When your energy is relaxed and balanced, there is more available for growth, healing and for the immune system.

Acupuncture and Peak Performance

Acupuncture helps maximize performance in athletics, on the job and to feel at home with yourself.  How?  Acupuncture is deeply relaxing.  This happens because when the energy in your body is balanced, you feel relaxed.  Instead of feeling stressed and tense, that energy is now available for you to use on the job and for athletics and other activities. Life is better when you are relaxed.  It is easier to be with other people, so your relationships will also improve.

Acupuncture and Making Changes.

Frequently people, new and ongoing clients and the general public, ask me, “Is it acupuncture that is making the difference in my feeling better or the small changes in Life Style that you have helped me with?”  Acupuncture generates a deep feeling of relaxation.  In a relaxed state it is easier to make choices and changes that will help you feel better.  Education regarding subtle flows of energy also help.  Nothing new ventured, nothing new will happen.

Acupuncture and the Season Change

Autumn has arrived in the Northern Hemisphere.  Even though the temperatures are still warm, the days are noticeably shorter, the air heavier.  The light, especially around sunset has a special quality.  This time the Natural Energy, — in acupuncture we call this Source Qi or Source Energy —  turns inward, toward the Yin aspect of our being, away from the outward Yang aspect.  Acupuncture helps balance this transition as well as harmonizing whatever else is stressful, bring great ease and relaxation. Harmony.

Acupuncture and Healing the Emotions

When someone is not feeling well, it is typical from a Western Medical point of view to look to physical causes.  However, we also have an energy body.  The energy body is intimately linked to our emotions.  We emote our feelings energetically.  Most physical illnesses have links into the energy body; especially chronic conditions and those not resolving in a timely fashion.  A skilled acupuncturist, trained in the 5-Element tradition can help heal the emotions, re-establishing the abundant energetic flow leading to vitality, healing and relaxation.
