How Does It Work?
Acupuncture looks at us as a Whole person, and when there are health symptoms or things about our life we want to change, we find what is out of balance and then correct it.
For example, to Lose Weight does not just mean we have to go on a diet. Acupuncture looks at the Qi of our digestive system to make sure it’s strong enough to break down – assimilate – and eliminate what we’re eating right now. Sometimes the problem is not eating too much, it’s strengthening our digestive organs which have probably gotten tired from too much stress or chronic improper diet in our past history. In this case it doesn’t matter how much we restrict our intake if we never do anything to make our Spleen/Pancreas/Stomach stronger.
In another example to Quit Smoking, two of the biggest ways Acupuncture helps is that it makes cigarette smoke taste HORRIBLE, and it starts to detoxify and strengthen our lungs. Imagine being able to give some love back to lungs that have been abused for years!
How Long Will It Take To Get Results?
Starting today with a good attitude and the huge amount of energy from the New Year is perfect!
What we’ll see with Acupuncture is not only a kick directly to the willpower caboose, but noticeable changes that take place with each treatment. It’s strong enough to tell, yet slow enough not to shock us into change that is uncomfortable. We stay with the Qi and grow, like graceful Tai Chi.
Some people will only need 1 course of 10-treaments, and some will need more – it really depends on a number of factors individual to you. All it takes is starting today and keeping your desire to continue moving forward until you look back and smile at what you accomplished. Imagine standing tall, saying YES - I DID IT!
Does It Hurt?
Most people really enjoy the treatments which we’ll describe below. And if you think it does hurt, then you deserve to get yourself an awesome relaxing massage after the treatment.
The Treament Process:
These Acupuncture treatments are done with very small needles inserted in the ears. The ears have nerve pathways that go directly into the brain and stimulate endorphins, hormones, and other chemicals very quickly and with a strong effect.
Our ears have over 200 acupoints that correspond to direct areas of the body and brain, just like Reflexology in the feet. Stimulation of these points is so strong that the Military uses a Pain Relief treatment for soldiers wounded on the battlefield that require immediate relief, and another special treatment is used in Addiction Clinics around the world.
Get set up today and get started. You can do this!
