Classical Five Element Acupuncture

2017-05-13 14.30.48.jpg

An ancient system of medicine rooted in the Taoist tradition. This system uses small needles and moxibustion (burning Chinese mugwort) to clear blockages in the energy to activate and enhance health. Each treatment includes a discussion, an exam and an acupuncture treatment which can last 1-2 hours.

Recommended treatment frequency is determined on a case-by-case basis by working with finances and schedules. However, due to the research on the nature of the brain it takes about 6 weeks or 40 days for old habits to dissolve.  Building up momentum with treatment during this 6 week period can create the most lasting changes. Sometimes treatment twice per week is appropriate, but in general once a week is recommended until symptoms subside, at which point frequency can be spaced out.

Typical ailments for treatment include: 

Uro-genital Disorders & Gynecological Disorders, such as stress incontinence, urinary tract infections, and sexual dysfunction. irregular, heavy, or painful menstruation, infertility, uterine fibroids, impotence, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), vaginitis, morning sickness, induction of labor and premenstrual syndrome (PMS).

Respiratory Disorders, such as emphysema, sinusitis, asthma, allergies, allergic rhinitis, hayfever, colds and flues, and bronchitis.

for Animals
 

Acupuncture research has shown to be very effective in treating animals. The most common issues I come across are physical and emotional issues. Behavioral problems can often occur from physical pain or trauma, where the animal is unable to express this in any other way. Acupuncture and bodywork is extremely successful for resolving many issues, chronic or acute, in young, middle aged, and elderly pets. Owners have reported the animal is easier to be around, likes/trusts people more, has less anxiety, increased appetite for life, and has an improved way of going. Increased appetite, regular bowels, and increased immunity have also been reported. Treatments take place at the home of the pet, in a private/quiet area. Sarah has trained in Masterson Method, and TTouch which are used in adjunct with the acupuncture for a holistic approach. Call for more information.
