Classical Acupuncture / Moxabustion / Traditional Healing Methods:
Classical acupuncture and other ancient healing methods that address the multi-dimensional aspects of the person are blended as needed. Each treatment addresses the person in the present moment, offering insight and expanded possibilities to the body, mind, and spirit.
Five Element Acupuncture reinforces our constitutional strengths and helps us gain clarity about our life. We begin to feel more joy, creativity, comfort, trust, and connection. It is hard to describe and different for everyone. Examples of what is commonly reported are experiences such as these; “I felt like I belonged in my home”, “Everything looked brighter after the treatment”, “I felt reborn”, “I don’t remember ever feeling this good” and “I still saw the difficult circumstances around me, but I saw the beauty even more”. Feeling this kind of wellbeing helps us know we are on the right track towards greater health.
Moxabustion, the burning of carefully dried herb mugwort or moxa, on or near the energy points of the body, can give energy to the system and is especially great for people who need building or nourishment. It reaches the emotional and spirit level functions of the points, and the more substantive aspect of ourselves. Moxabustion is an integral part of Classical Acupuncture technique.
Acupressure, cupping, Reiki, Shamanic Journey, Sound, music, guided visualization and and other healing techniques gathered and tested from years of study and clinical experience may be used alone or in conjunction with the acupuncture treatment. Qi Gong or Qi Cultivation techniques are breathing and movement exercises which may be given as part of the treatment homework and lifestyle coaching. Treatments are chosen according to interest and as appropriate.
