Many adults and children of all ages are coping with some level of anxiety and stress. Sometimes, they don’t even realize it as we’ve been conditioned to accept stress as “normal.” Our collective busyness and drive to survive and thrive can contribute to our sense of feeling out of balance and incomplete. Information overload can also contributes to our stressful lives.
Acupuncture and Chinese medicine have been used for thousands of years to help people regain balance and enhance wellness.
It’s based on the interplay of natural life forces known as yin and yang. The goal is to balance these forces to foster optimal energy. Achieving balance enhances our health while reducing our risk of illness.
Every aspect in life requires balance.
It’s one of the keys to our health, success, and happiness. Acupuncture helps to release pathogens and blocks to allow the body to function more effectively. It’s like peeling back the layers of an onion. I have witnessed renewed strength and hope in first time patients and more so with ongoing patients.
Many people have told me they felt an improved ability to cope with stress after one treatment.
The treatment options available include:
- Electrical Stimulation
- Chinese Herbs
- Tuina Massage
- Percussion Massage
- Laser Therapy
- Whole Food Supplements
- Health Counseling.
These treatments are not magical, and they require follow up care and a sense of focus by each patient. Each treatment of 30-60 minutes is tailored to the individual according to their needs. Many patients are so relaxed that they end up enjoying a refreshing nap.
Prolonged stress can lead to insomnia, anxiety, fear, depression, and the weakening of our immune system. By nourishing and balancing our internal organ systems, the treatments from Traditional Chinese Medicine promotes healing, enhances mental cognition, and supports proper sleep.
Good nutrition and sufficient clean water are also important to nourishing the body. They support our vital circulation system that feeds our brain and other organs. In Chinese medicine, we don’t separate the body parts and target only one area.
We treat the entire body and brain (root and branch) as a whole so that it can function at its highest potential.
It’s a reminder that true holistic medicine is much older than many people realize.
