SOUTH SHORE ACUPUNCTURE
Acupuncture began in China over 6,000 years ago. It is a technique of inserting extremely fine sterile needles very superficially at specific sites on the body called Acupuncture points. These points are located along energetic pathways called Meridians. The body’s Vital Energy or Qi (Chi) flows throughout the body in these invisible vessels. To maintain good health, there must be a balance of Qi in every part of the body. If the flow of Qi becomes blocked or out of balance, illness will result. Acupuncture needles are like “keys” that have the ability to open the doors, windows and gates of the body which may be blocked or closed by internal stagnations and thus influence the flow of blood and Qi throughout the entire body. Healing results when the flow of blood and Qi are re-established. Acupuncture is used to treat many common conditions including: headaches, back pain, hip pain, sciatica, neck pain, shoulder pain, knee pain, plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel syndrome, arthritis, infertility, menstrual disorders, digestive disorders, anxiety, depression, insomnia, allergies, sinusitis, asthma, and nausea. It is also used as an adjunctive treatment following chemotherapy and radiation therapy, improve circulation and to promote a general feeling of well-being and deep relaxation.
Reiki is a Japanese energetic healing technique used to balance and restore the body, the mind and the spirit. The system of Reiki was developed by Mikao Usui in 1922. Reiki is effectively used to reduce stress, promote deep relaxation and encourage healing.
Over 800 hospitals across the U.S. offer Reiki as a regular part of patient services, including the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, MA, Massachusetts Brigham & Women's Hospital, Boston, MA, Yale New Haven Hospital, New Haven,Connecticut, California Pacific Medical Center, San Francisco, CA, John Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, MD and George Washington University Medical Center, Washington, D.C.
Qigong (Chi Gong) is also a form of energetic healing. Qigong literally means to cultivate the vital energy. Medical Qigong is the application of cultivated Qi, with or without touch, to heal the body, mind and spirit. It was developed in China thousands of years ago and has been used to reduce pain, alleviate stress, release constrained emotions, quiet the heart, normalize the blood pressure, enhance mental focus, calm the mind, elevate the mood, improve circulation, move energy blockages, promote deep relaxation and elicit a profound sense of well-being.
