Acupuncture & Moxibustion
Have you been faced with a difficult diagnosis? Been through the ringer with lots of different doctors and been told that you will only get worse? Classical Acupuncture, a comprehensive system of healing based on the classical texts and practice of Chinese Medicine, contains the capacity to effectively treat any illness, whether acute or chronic, to stop and even reverse the progression of disease. It includes the use of the Primary Channels and all of the Complement Channels: Sinew Channels, Luo Vessels, Divergent Channels, and Eight Extraordinary Vessels. Channels and vessels are synonymous, they are meridians or pathways of energy within the body. To read more Classical Acupuncture, click here.
Five Element Acupuncture
Are you feeling out of balance or disconnected from who you are at your core? Five Element Acupuncture brings people back into balance and initiates profound healing by treating the patient’s Elemental Constitution, based on Five Element Theory and the Five Elements: Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, and Metal. The natural world is comprised of the Elements and each Element is an archetype deeply personified in the human experience. Their movements and characteristics can be observed within both nature, the human body, and the psyche. To read more, click here.
Moxibustion is used in both Classical Acupuncture and Five Element Acupuncture. Moxa, Artemisia Argyi, is an herb with medicinal properties that is rolled into tiny cones and burned on acupuncture points or painful areas. It is supplementing and warming but also articulating for a deeper activation of the point.
