Acupuncture

Acupuncture is one aspect of Chinese Medicine, a holistic approach that, includes nutrition, breathwork, movement, and massage. Chinese Medicine is a unique form of medicine as the connection among mind, body and spirit are ingrained in its principles and philosophy. When there is a misalignment in your body, it breeds dis-ease in its various manifestations. Just like anything in Nature, the holistic elements of Chinese Medicine can bring the body’s energy channels back into a state of homeostasis.

Acupuncture is applied by inserting thin, sterile, stainless steel needles into various energy points in the body. Metal needles are used as they are great conductors of electricity and heat.

Do acupuncture needles hurt? Not Really. Check out my blog on acupuncture needles.

Acupuncture needles are as thin as a strand of your hair. They are rounded at the tips, and the shaft is solid. They are not built to transfer fluids, hence not as large nor as sharp as syringes that doctors use. Acupuncture needles are tools to guide your body’s energy back into balance. It is a generally gentle and painless technique; but don’t worry, if you can’t get passed the needles, I’ll offer you several alternatives to get the energy in your channels moving.

By manipulating your acupuncture points with either needles, massage, cupping, essential oils or pressure, the energy (qi) of your body, initiating your body’s natural healing response.

How will I feel after my session?

Acupuncture causes the brain to release serotonin (our “feel good” mood- enhancer chemical) as well as natural endorphins. These chemicals relax your nervous system, allow more oxygen and blood flow into your organ systems and provide a sense of relaxation.

Your physical health and symptoms will improve with each session and your awareness (and love!) of self will grow as your commitment to your health continues. You will experience renewed energy throughout your days, significantly decreased stress, and you will have new and effective tools to confidently employ on your own if new symptoms arise.

Mayan Abdominal Therapy

The Arvigo Techniques of Maya Abdominal Therapy® are based on the ancient Mayan methods of abdominal massage. This gentle, external approach guides and supports each organ back into its optimal position, allowing for improved function and wellness.

Arvigo® Therapy is best known for addressing misalignment or congestion in the reproductive organs of both men and women, as well as many common digestive disorders.  The techniques effectively alleviate tissue congestion and organ constriction to improve the vital flows of energy, blood, lymph and nerves in the abdomen. During our sessions, emotional and energetic tension are released from the abdomen, assisting in the prevention of chronic disease.
