While the pressures and stresses in life may not change, the way you deal with them can. It begins by making fundamental changes that will create more balance, energy, and strength both mentally and physically.

ACU:

Whenever there is a disruption in the flow of your qi (the vital energy in your body that is essential for good health) it leads to disease and disharmony. When your body exhibits any kind of symptoms ‚Äì like headaches or bad digestion or insomnia for example ‚Äì it is communicating that there are imbalances in the body. 

Acupuncture (the insertion of fine, disposable needles into specific points in the body) is a way of communicating with the body to signal healing. Qi is highly responsive to this natural and ancient medical practice that dates back over two millennia.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nIn the initial treatment, our acupuncture sessions include a thorough evaluation and intake to determine the Root Diagnoses or Root Causes of the body’s disharmony. Based on these Root Diagnoses, the practitioner will pick points in the body to balance out and harmonize this root disharmony. Because this is a full service treatment, your practitioner may also incorporate adjunctive therapies such as guasha, cupping, moxibustion, and more to assist your body in healing.\r\n\r\n&nbsp;\r\n\r\nOur practitioners don’t just offer you a quick fix; beginning at the initial appointment, you will be taught how to be preventative and maintain balanced health with herbs, nutrition and lifestyle counseling. They also offer meditation and breath work training to help modulate stress levels and maintain balance outside of the treatment room.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text][/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]<strong> </strong>[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text="Laser Acupuncture" use_theme_fonts="yes"][vc_column_text]Low-level laser cold therapy is <em>not </em>like lasers used as scalpels in surgery; rather, CLT uses light emitting diodes (LEDs).  The laser penetrates the skin and is conducted through the same meridian points used in acupuncture, depositing energy into the cells. Recent studies show laser acupuncture has similar effects as a needle on the brain-stimulated when acupuncture points are targeted.

 

Acupuncture is an ancient medical practice that dates back over two millennia and focuses on correcting imbalances in qi, the vital energy that is essential for good health. Acupuncture facilitates the flow of qi through the insertion of fine, disposable needles into different points in the body.\n\nWhenever there is a disruption in the flow of your qi, it can lead to disease and disharmony in the body. When your body exhibits symptoms, like headaches, bad digestion, or insomnia, it is signaling that there are imbalances in the body. We use acupuncture as a way of communicating with the body to signal healing and bring you back in balance.\n\n<strong>How is acupuncture different at Source Healing?</strong>\n\nAt Source Healing, we go beyond the traditional practices of Asian Medicine, providing a more modern take on acupuncture. We carefully evaluate every client and ask ourselves, ‚ÄúWhat does this person need?‚Äù Teaching responsibility for one‚Äôs health and a holistic approach to life is integral to our treatments. Beginning with the one-on-one consultation, our acupuncturists tailor each treatment to your specific needs.\n\nYou will embark on a healing path that teaches you how to care for yourself and live a vibrant, fruitful life. Life is full of transitions and each has its own effect on our body and well-being. At Source Healing, we use acupuncture as a tool to help you learn how to let go and successfully navigate through all of the changes and challenges you experience.\n\nOur clients develop a lasting relationship with the acupuncturists. In fact, we know all of our clients by name. At Source Healing, you‚Äôre coming in for the quality service, for the personal relationship you build with your acupuncturist, and the high quality of care.
