Acupuncture works through the activation of "points" along pathways called acupuncture meridians. If you think of an acupuncture meridian as a conduit, similar to that of a blood vessel which transports fluid, it may be easier to understand. There are twelve primary meridians which flow throughout the body covering all major areas of the torso, arms and legs. The meridians flow one into the other, with the last one then circling back to connect with the first. These paths ensure an even flow of a substance called “chi” throughout all areas of the body. The term chi translates as energy or “Life Force”. When the chi is flowing freely the body is healthy.
Cupping is the inverse of massage. Rather than applying pressure to muscles, the suction uses pressure to pull skin, tissue and muscles upward. We often combine cupping and acupuncture in one treatment, but it can also be used alone. There are five meridian lines on the back, and these are where the cups are usually placed. Using these points, cupping can help to align and relax Chi (Life Force Energy), as well as target more specific disorders or imbalances. Cupping has numerous benefits — it can help remove toxins from the body and stimulate the flow of fresh blood, lymph, and Chi to the affected area and throughout the body. It often works well for patients with the flu, colds, coughs, back and muscle pain, poor circulation, anxiety, red itchy skin conditions, allergies, fevers, aches and a myriad other pains.
Wound Healing, Detoxification, Plantar Fascitis, Low Back Pain, Breaking-up Scar Tissue, Weight-Loss, and Tight muscles all respond well to electrical stimulation. Microcurrent and Microlight work to relieve blockage and pain, similar to acupuncture, by clearing stagnation and poor circulation of blood and Chi (vital energy). Another effect of microcurrent is the reduction of electrical resistance in the areas and pathways of the body where it is applied. Patients often present with a complex mixture of pain, internal disorders, emotional and reactive symptoms which are often aggravated by an overload of chemical toxins in the body. Also, patients are usually seeking therapies which produce faster results. Microcurrent, light and/or sound therapies are some of the most powerful therapeutic methods which offer these kinds of results. Applying these energies through well-selected acupuncture points enhances the effects.
Moxibustion is a traditional Chinese medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing. Moxibustion has been used throughout Asia for thousands of years. The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of traditional Chinese medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of Chi, and maintain general health.
Esoteric Acupuncture is designed for those seeking to heal on the Soul Level. Esoteric Acupuncture defines a “way of life.” This way of life emphasizes the awakening and expansion of our spiritual center. It includes the importance of understanding the vibrational frequencies of the foods and drinks we ingest. Everything we eat and drink shapes our multiple energy fields. In esoteric teachings, obelisk can also mean a temple. Puncture means to pierce. Therefore, we are piercing your “temple” (your physical body) to activate or to reach something esoteric within. This esoteric “something” is the alignment, strengthening and refining your Heart Center. This Heart Center is the field which opens up infinite possibilities for your journey on planet Earth.
This is an excellent treatment option for Children and Adults with an aversion to needles! Coming from the field of modern biophysics, Acu-Color Meridian Therapy combines concepts of acupuncture with the latest research on the way light functions in the body. Colorpuncture achieves this by introducing vibrational information into the body in the form of different colored light frequencies via the meridian system. For these treatments, a hand-held aculight pen with insertable colored glass tips is used. The tool emits incandescent light and is battery-operated. Each colored tip is precisely set at a specific frequency within the frequency band for each color. Colorpuncture treatment consists of particular sets of points treated in sequence with specific colors. Treatment points are derived from traditional acupuncture. Microcurrent and Microlight works to relieve blockage and pain in a similar way as acupuncture by clearing stagnation and poor circulation of blood and Chi (vital energy).
