Benefits of acupuncture & Chinese herbal medicine
At Elements of Wellness we use Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs help to heal the body, mind, and heart. These modalities have been documented to effectively treat a variety of health concerns including; headaches, allergies, chronic fatigue, depression, asthma, digestive disorders, infertility, insomnia and other sleeping disorders, back pain, menstrual disorders, addictions and stress.
Acupuncture is also helpful for many chronic illnesses and complaints that lack an easily determined medical cause. Patients report that they are sick less often and recover more quickly, have increased vitality and stamina, have improved their general self-care, have more harmonious relationships, and are able to avoid costly medical interventions.
Healing the Body
Acupuncture can be used to effectively treat most physical symptoms and disorders.
Regular treatment can help heal musculo-skeletal, joint and nerve pain, asthma & respiratory problems, PMS, menstrual and infertility issues, poor digestion, allergies, insomnia, heart palpitations, fatigue, and many more. Acupuncture can ward off an oncoming cold or flu or shorten the length of illnesses in those already sick, and can help speed recovery time after surgery.
We also use acupuncture and herbs preventively for patients who want to maintain their health and prevent illness over the long term.
Healing the Mind
Acupuncture has a long tradition of healing mental and emotional conditions, including memory loss, lack of focus, depression, confusion, anxiety and stress.
It can also be helpful during transitional times such as divorce, illness, or the loss of a loved one. Our treatments help transform stuck emotions into healthier ways of relating to oneself and others.
Chinese Medicine used in conjunction with psychotherapy and medication can help speed recovery.
Healing the Heart
Manifesting one’s greater calling in life is a vital, often overlooked part of health. Many illnesses, especially ones that become chronic, originate from a loss of connection with what is most important to us, or a lack of aligning with our true purpose in the world. Sometimes dis-ease is our body’s only way to call our attention to these larger life issues.
Our highest calling is to support our patients’ healing on this deeper level of heart. For this reason, we say that the care we provide is “rooted in heart”.
