ACUPUNCTURE

Acupuncture Helps relieve pain, indigestion, breathing issues, nerve conditions, cardiovascular problems, PMS, menopausal symptoms and so much more. Also a great way to curb cravings and quit smoking.


WHAT IS ACUPUNCTURE?
Acupuncture is a complex branch of ancient Chinese medicine, but its practical principles and methods are easily understood:
1. Fourteen major energy channels called meridians course through the human body.
2. A subtle energy called Chi (pronounced chee) circulates via the meridians to all parts of the body.
3. Chi is the vital force, the presence of which separates the living from the dead. Its balanced, unimpeded flow is critical to sound health.
4. Any misdirection, blockage, or other derangement of the amount, flow, or balance of Chi may result in pain, dysfunction, and ill health.
5. With acupuncture needles, or other means, the acupuncturist stimulates certain points (acupoints) along the course of the meridians. Such stimulation helps restore the normal balance and flow of Chi so organs and bodily systems can work together in harmony as intended. This sets the stage for the body to repair itself and maintain its own health.

GROUP ACUPUNCTURE HELD TUESDAY EVENINGS AT 6PM ($25 Fee cannot accept class packages or unlimited for this service.)

SHONISHIN

More commonly known as pediatric acupuncture, Shonishin literally translated means sho for little, ni for children, and shin for needle (though typically no needles are used and nothing actually penetrates the skin).

Tracing its roots back to 17th century Osaka, Japan (and ultimately to ancient China), the specialized acupuncture technique was developed specifically for babies and children up to the age of seven. Practitioners insist Shonishin offers a viable alternative to pharmaceuticals in the treatment of childhood health problems-everything from behavioral and emotional to many physical conditions. It has been used with some success in treating infants and children afflicted with a wide variety of conditions, including colic, indigestion, GERD, constipation, and diarrhea. It has even shown some success in the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), allergies, asthma, eczema, hives, bedwetting, and stuttering. Children as young as one month old have been effectively treated.

Acupressure and a Japanese technique Shonishin can be used to treat children without needles. This technique can be used for children as young as 6 months old to young adults (or even adults who are afraid of needles).
