“Acupuncture for many, is a painless, safe and effective alternative or complementary therapy to treat and address a wide range of physical and emotional disorders”


 An Acupuncture session is a relaxing experience which leaves the patient closer to their treatment goals, with a heightened sense of well-being.

 Scientific research into Acupuncture therapy has been very extensive and has proven the healing benefits of its techniques. The uses of acupuncture points for healing have been proven through consistent observation and practice for over three thousand years. During the past twenty years the existence of these points and channels has been confirmed by electromagnetic research.

Complementary Therapy for the Treatment of Serious Conditions

  Acupuncture is used to address the root cause of disease, as well as strengthening the immune system, and increasing the patient's body strength.   Acupuncture can be an effective complementary therapy for serious illnesses such as cancer, lupus, MS, and can counteract side effects of some medical treatments such as Chemotherapy.

 

Therapy in Emotional & Spiritual Work & Treating Stress

  Acupuncture addresses both the emotional and physical aspects of each individual in the healing of the whole being. Acupuncture therapy, along with its complementary therapies such as bodywork and herbalism, is inherently designed to treat the emotional and spiritual self along with physical symptoms.

 Emotional processing and healing, though very beneficial, can be hard on the body and on people close to us. Acupuncture can help the body re-balance, strengthen and center itself during the shifts that occur during emotional work or in the stressful times in life.

 

What is an Acupuncture Treatment Like?

 After their initial interview, the client

lies or sits in a relaxed, comfortable position for the treatment. Each person's treatment plan will be unique. The location of needling will vary, depending on each person's individual interview and diagnosis.

 Winona usually begins a session with massage and palpation to locate sensitive acupoints and assess the degree of tension in painful areas

 

Needling: Acupuncture should never be painful. During needling, you may notice a tingling or dull sensation. This is a sign that the proper effects are being achieved. Often no pain or just a minor pinch, like that of a light mosquito bite, is felt upon needle insertion.

 

Acupressure/ Electric stimulation: If the client has an aversion to needles, acupressure and other techniques can be employed along with some mild electric, tuning forks or magnetic stimulation.
