SUCH AS ACU-MENDING, ACU-FACIAL, ACU-TUINA, & ACU-ENERGETX
ARE BEING USED FROM THE ACUPRESSURE CAPACITY. WE DO NOT OFFER DEEP NEEDLE TREATMENTS/SESSIONS.
FOR THE REASON THAT MANY LADIES OUT THERE NEED A SOFTER APPROACH TO THE SAME MEDICINAL PROTOCOLS.
MY CLINIC OFFERS THE SAME APPROACH TO WHOLISM WELLNESS HEALING AS TCM & ACUPUNCTURE, BUT I DO NOT FEEL NEEDLING IS REQUIRED WHEN YOU CAN GAIN THE BENEFITS OF THE PRACTICES, USE THE SAME FORMATTING OF MERIDIAN POINTS AND USE THIS IN A PLATFORM OF ACUPRESSURE. SO THAT IS WHAT I USE FOR MY SESSIONS IN ORDER TO HELP THOSE WHO WANT THE BENEFITS OF ANCIENT SOPHISTICATED CHINESE HEALTHCARE BUT NOT THE INVASIVE NATURE OF NEEDLES.
THIS IS ESPECIALLY HELPFUL FOR THOSE RECOVERING FROM TRAUMAS, ACCIDENTS, ABUSE, AND/OR YOU HAVE ACUTE OR CHRONIC ILLNESSES AND REQUIRE SOME COMPLIMENTARY SUBTLE ENERGY HEALING TEAM MEMBERS. I WORK WELL WITH OTHERS AND HAVE SESSIONS AVAILABLE IN PEDIATRIC TUINA FOR CHILDREN WHERE I CAN HELP YOU PROCESS AS A MOTHER HOW BEST TO WORK WITH YOUR OWN CAPACITIES AND ADD TO THEM TO IMPROVE OVER ALL EFFORTS IN WELLNESS AND MAINTAINENCE WITH CHILDREN. MEANING ALL MY PEDIATRIC SESSIONS I WILL BE GIVING THE CHILD TREATMENT USING ACUPRESSURE TECHNIQUES, AT THE SAME TIME AS TEACHING YOU HOW TO PERFORM THE ROUTINES I PROVIDE, CUSTOMIZED TO YOUR CHILD, TO TAKE HOME AND PRACTICE YOUR OWN SELF. IN FACT I HAVE MUCH TO OFFER FOR TAKE HOME AND HAVE PLENTY OF FREE RESOURCES TO FURTHER SELF CARE IN ROTATION WITH IN CLINIC CARE TREATMENTS.
Defines=Acupressure as a form of touch therapy that utilizes the principles of acupuncture and Chinese Wholism Healthcare. In acupressure,the same points on the body are used as in acupuncture, but are stimulated with finger pressure instead of with the insertion of needles. Acupressure is used to relieve a variety of symptoms and pain.
Acupressure massage performed by a therapist can be very effective both as prevention and as a treatment for many health conditions, including headaches, general aches and pains, colds and flu, arthritis, allergies, asthma, nervous tension, menstrual cramps, sinus problems, sprains, tennis elbow, and toothaches, among others. Unlike acupuncture which requires a visit to a professional, acupressure can be performed by a layperson. Acupressure techniques are fairlyeasy to learn, and have been used to provide quick, cost-free, and effective relief from many symptoms. Acupressurepoints can also be stimulated to increase energy and feelings of well-being, reduce stress, stimulate the immune system,and alleviate sexual dysfunction.
One of the oldest text of Chinese medicine is the Huang Di, The Yellow Emperor's Classic of Internal Medicine, whichmay be at least 2,000 years old. Chinese medicine has developed acupuncture, acupressure, herbal remedies, diet,exercise, lifestyle changes, and other remedies as part of its healing methods. Nearly all of the forms of Orientalmedicine that are used in the West today, including acupuncture, acupressure, shiatsu, and Chinese herbal medicine,have their roots in Chinese medicine. One legend has it that acupuncture and acupressure evolved as early Chinesehealers studied the puncture wounds of Chinese warriors, noting that certain points on the body created interestingresults when stimulated. The oldest known text specifically on acupuncture points, the Systematic Classic of Acupuncture,dates back to 282 A.D. Acupressure is the non-invasive form of acupuncture, as Chinese physicians determined thatstimulating points on the body with massage and pressure could be effective for treating certain problems.
Outside of Asian-American communities, Chinese medicine remained virtually unknown in the United States until the1970s, when Richard Nixon became the first U.S. president to visit China. On Nixon's trip, journalists were amazed toobserve major operations being performed on patients without the use of anesthetics. Instead, wide-awake patients werebeing operated on, with only acupuncture needles inserted into them to control pain. At that time, a famous columnist forthe New York Times, James Reston, had to undergo surgery and elected to use acupuncture for anesthesia. Later, hewrote some convincing stories on its effectiveness. Despite being neglected by mainstream medicine and the AmericanMedical Association (AMA), acupuncture and Chinese medicine became a central to alternative medicine practitioners inthe United States. Today, there are millions of patients who attest to its effectiveness, and nearly 9,000 practitioners in all50 states.
Acupressure is practiced as a treatment by Chinese medicine practitioners and acupuncturists, as well as by massagetherapists. Most massage schools in American include acupressure techniques as part of their bodywork programs.Shiatsu massage is very closely related to acupressure, working with the same points on the body and the same generalprinciples, although it was developed over centuries in Japan rather than in China. Reflexology is a form of bodyworkbased on acupressure concepts. Jin Shin Do is a bodywork technique with an increasing number of practitioners inAmerica that combines acupressure and shiatsu principles with qigong, Reichian theory, and meditation.
Acupressure and chinese medicine
Chinese medicine views the body as a small part of the universe, subject to laws and principles of harmony and balance.Chinese medicine does not make as sharp a destinction as Western medicine does between mind and body. The Chinesesystem believes that emotions and mental states are every bit as influential on disease as purely physical mechanisms,and considers factors like work, environment, and relationships as fundamental to a patient's health.
