Never had Acupuncture and want to feel better and smile more? This is where to start! Your health history will be reviewed, more questions will be asked in relation to history and related to channels of the body. An exam will be given; physical palpation of points will be performed to assess the function of the channels, tongue and pulses checked, and areas of the body that have symptoms will be palpated. During the exam if appropriate BEMER will be used to get the circulation moving. Needles will be placed and needle time allowed. After needle time they will be removed and adjunctive therapies will be applied as determined most supportive to your treatment. After the treatment a report of findings and treatment plan will be presented. Herbal prescriptions may be suggested if appropriate to support the treatment.
5 Element Acupuncture $250 -1.5 hours approx.
Your overall expression in relation to your reason for seeking treatment is determined during your exam and health interview using the elemental characteristics of Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal (known as the five elements). More specifically, 5E addresses physical discomfort or symptoms that have not responded to other treatment and may have an emotional connection to manifestation. Your health history will be reviewed and other questions asked before needles are placed. This treatment is designed to meet the patient where they are and set the stage of where they want to be.
Pulses will be felt and tongue observed. Physical palpation of points will be performed to assess the function of the channels. Five element treatments differ from Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) treatment in these ways; Seirin forty gage needles and gold plated needles as well as the Five Element point location are used.
Gua Sha Adjunctive therapy
Cupping Adjunctive therapy
Gua Sha is an ancient traditional Chinese medicine technique used to reduce inflation and pain caused by blocked or excess energy in the channels.
Usually preformed on the back, neck, buttocks, arms and legs. There is a gentle version preformed on the face. A rounded flat scraping massage tool is used to rub the slightly oil lubricated skin with short or long strokes in a downward direction. Pressure starts light then increases to what
is tolerable for each person. This stimulates micro-circulation, reduces inflammation, relieves pain and tension in the muscles braking apart scar tissue stretching the fascia promoting healing and the release of stuck blood that is in the tissue called Sha. This is the “red sand” looking marks that appears on the skin after gua sha. Sha will linger for a few days to a week. Studies found gua sha increases circulation to the area by 400% for 7 minutes returning to baseline after 2 days. This therapy warms and cools the body facilitating balance for optimal function and healing.
Cupping uses negative pressure created by heat allowing the cup to suction to the skin. Cups can be made out of glass, ceramic, plastic and bamboo. The suction penetrates up to five inches into the body loosening and lifting connective tissues. Cupping warms the body, promotes increased circulation and detoxification of tissues by bringing old stuck blood and lymph fluid to the surface to be removed by the body’s natural waist elimination processes.
Cupping is used to treat pain, relieves inflammation, sedates the nervous system, breaks up and expels congestion, stretches muscle and connective tissues, loosens adhesions, moves stagnation and drains fluids, deep tissue work and release without discomfort.
Tui Na Adjunctive therapy
Tui Na (pronounced “twee-nah”) is body work that literally translates as push (Tui), and squeeze or pull (Na). This modality is most beneficial in acute and chronic pain relief by focusing on specific areas. Using joint rotation, stretches, gliding, heat, tapping, friction, shaking, kneading, pressing, rubbing, acupressure point stimulation and other physical methods, Tui Na application directly affects the flow of qi (energy) in different meridians and muscles removing blockages and promoting healing.
Reiki $300 - 1-1.5 hours approx.
A Japanese stress reduction and relaxation technique that a Reiki practitioner performs for a client that is present or may be in another location. In a Reiki session the client explains the reason for coming so the practitioner has an idea of how they can help and how information that is obtained from the session relates to the client. Reiki is performed with clothing on and shoes removed. First the client is face up and Chakras are evaluated then balanced. The front side hand positions are placed on the body then the client rolls over to their back and the Chakras are evaluated and balanced from this side and the back hand positions are placed on the client. The client then rolls face up again and the aura is cleared, smoothed and sealed. Water will be given and a short session experience will be discussed.
BEMER Energy therapy :
Stands for Bio Electro-Magnetic Energy Regulation, the frequency emitted is similar to the electro-magnetic energy of the Earth. This frequency opens the capillaries of the body increasing the circulation of blood through the body for 12 hours. Increased circulation moves white blood cells around the body supporting immune function and detoxification of the body. All disease according to Chinese Medicine is caused by undetected circulation issues in the body. The BEMER increases the circulation of blood and energy on the body so it can heal and perform optimally.
Moxibustion – Moxa Balm Adjunctive therapy
A Chinese Medicine technique that involves burning the herb Mugwort to warm coldness. Meaning that it has the energetic properties that warm the body which moves stuck energy and builds the internal heat needed to digest food and protect the body from cold pathogens like virus and bacteria or muscle cramping and pain. The energy of cold is contracting causing it to lock in a virus or contract muscles. There are many ways to use Moxa. Externally and internally; stick Moxa, needle Moxa, indirect Moxa, smokeless and balm. A stick of Moxa is lit and a hot cherry stoked until it will stay lit. Warmth is then painted over the skin of the desired area of treatment, usually acupuncture points or channels. Needle Moxa is applied to tops of needles and lit. Indirect Moxa is placed on a piece of herb that is placed on the skin then lit. Amy uses a Moxa balm in combination with heat lamp and Tui Na massage is used in order to avoid the danger and smoke from burning Moxa.
Auricular and Ear seeds
Auricular uses the microsystem of the ear to access the entire body. Either body parts and or systems of the body are stimulated to promote their healing and optimal function. Specific points on the ear are either needled for treatment, like the NADA National Acupuncture Detoxification Association protocol and ear seeds applied to offer continued support for the treatment. Or as a needless form of treatment. Seeds are left in for 2-3 days. Seeds can be made of stainless steel, gold plated stainless steel or Vaccaria seeds.
Used in Chinese Medicine to support the Acupuncture treatment and treatment plan. Often referred to as internal medicine. Herbs can be used internally and externally to support treatment. Topical herbal patches or lineaments are used for pain and as a safe way to add support without ingestion if a patient is on a lot of medication. Patients taking medication are less likely to have herbal formulas in their treatment plan to avoid any complications. Amy mostly uses patent herbal formulas that are in tablet or capsule form because they are easier for her patients to comply with. There is no preparation needed and they travel easily.
