Many common illnesses are caused by physiological blockages (known as stagnations) and relative states of ‘excess and deficiency’ that eventually lead to more serious diseases. These imbalances and stagnations can provoke symptoms such as: allergies, digestive issues, headaches, infertility, pain and much more. This state of dis-ease and blockage causes other bodily functions to go awry and enhances the compounded aspects of life changing illnesses. The art of acupuncture aims to recalibrate and rebalance health by promoting the smooth flow of energy and other key substances in the body in order to support and nourish organs, glands and tissues.
A little bit of history…
An ancient Chinese medical technique, acupuncture has been refined for over 3,000 years and has been widely used in the USA for decades.
With a multitude of modern applications in comprehensive medical facilities across the world today, it is used to treat a wide variety of physical, mental and emotional ailments. It is also used as a preventative medicine.
How it’s done…
During your treatment, super fine, painless needles (the width of a few strands of hair) are inserted in to specific points on the body to create a therapeutic effect by stimulating your own innate healing capabilities. Acupuncture helps to remove excesses, replenish deficiencies and unblock stagnations by redirecting energy, known as ‘Qi’ in Chinese medicine.
Esoteric Acupuncture is a form of acupuncture that combines Sacred Geometry, the Chakra system, the Kabbalah, the Taoist meaning of the acupuncture points, and guided visualization. It was developed by Dr. Mikio Sankey when he was deep in meditation up at Mt. Shasta, and brings an influx of cosmic energy to activate and align different layers of the energy system. These treatments balance the chakras, subtle and astral bodies, and strengthen our connection between heart and head, soul and body.
The Definition of Qi (ch-ee)
Qi is identified as a vital circulating life force, and is essentially what keeps blood flowing smoothly through our veins. When Qi is not flowing properly we experience pain, discomfort and other common conditions. The good news is that all of these imbalances can be realigned, unblocked and nourished by acupuncture, herbal medicine and other accompanying modalities (link to modalities).
