Wellness

"Wellness is more than being free from illness, it is a dynamic process of change and growth. "...A state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

ACUPUNCTURE

What is Acupuncture? 

Acupuncture originated in China over 3,000 years ago. Based on the ancient Chinese concept of Qi, vital life energy, it is believed that health is created by a balanced flow of Qi. Qi is circulated in the body along 14 energy pathways, called meridians, each linked to specific internal organs and organ systems. There are over four hundred acupuncture points within the meridian system that can be stimulated to enhance the flow of Qi.

 

How does Acupuncture Work? 

Following diagnosis, thin, disposable needles are inserted into the body at specific acupoints along the acupuncture meridians to stimulate the body’s healing energy or Qi. The process of acupuncture revitalizes balance and health in the body.

 

Benefits of Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a natural anti-inflammatory that reduces pain, inflammation, stress, and aids blood circulation and healing. It can be integral too in the treatment of those struggling with fertility and many common pregnancy ailments. 

 

The World Health Organization (WHO) of the United Nations has cited 104 different conditions that acupuncture can treat successfully; including, migraines, sinusitis, the common cold, tonsillitis, asthma, eye inflammation, addictions, myopia, duodenal ulcer (and other gastrointestinal disorders), trigeminal neuralgia, sciatica, migraine headache, Meniere's disease, tennis elbow, carpal tunnel, neuropathy, bell’s palsy, sprain or strains, paralysis from stroke, speech aphasia, sciatica, osteoarthritis, and more.

 

PELVIC FLOOR PHYSICAL THERAPY

Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy is a specialized type of therapy that addresses common conditions and symptoms when there is muscle weakness in the pelvic floor. A weakened pelvic floor could be muscles that are hypertonic, or can’t relax. This would be indicative of very specific treatment whereas kegels, or true pelvic floor exercises, would be contraindicated. The pelvic floor also could be weak with hypo-tenacity, where the musculature needs some strengthening. This lack of tone could be a signal that there is also a lack of energy or a stagnancy in this chakra. Our pelvic floor also could be weak with hypotenacity, where the musculature needs some strengthening. This lack of tone, could be a signal that there is also a lack of energy or a stagnancy in this chakra. This sacred part of our body, and yes men have pelvic floors too, is essential to our health and well-being, yet generally neglected in our overall healthcare. Our pelvic floor enables healthy and pleasurable sex, is a major factory in the quality of birthing and is the hammock of muscles that support our reproductive organs. 

The ways in which these weaknesses may manifest physically include: 

 

  • Constipation

  • Frequent Urination

  • Trouble controlling your bowels or urine, leading to leaks

  • Pain during sex in women

  • Erectile disorder in men

  • inorgasmia

  • Excessive sex drive

  • Compulsive behaviors

  • Difficulty controlling emotions

  • Tail Bone and Pubic Bone Pain (pubis symphysis dysfunction)

  • Fertility issues

  • Menstruation issues

We believe that especially as women, particularly pregnant people, making pelvic floor physical therapy an essential part of our sexual and reproductive healthcare would have such a significant, positive impact on women’s health and happiness. Our pelvic floor is our root chakra, which provides us with our sense of safety and security. When there is an imbalance physically it could be reflective of what’s happening in our lives.

HYPNOTHERAPY

 

REIKI

Reiki is a universal healing energy that brings the body, physically and energetically, back into balance enhancing our own natural way of healing. The ability to heal is as natural as the ability to breathe. It’s a gift that we as people have disconnected from. Reiki can restore us to our sense of oneness with all that exists in the world and to connect with the knowledge that all life is created from and nurtured by the same source. In Reiki, this source is Universal Healing Energy. In Japanese “Rei,” means universal, and “ki,” means life-force energy.Ki, (also know as Chi in Chinese and Prana in Sanskrit), means the nonphysical energy which creates and maintains balance in the body and mind. Reiki helps to release blockages of energy, aiding in the healing of past emotional pain. The receiver is not actually healed by the practitioner, but by the universal life energy itself and its balancing effects. Since energy is a natural life force energy, it can not harm anyone and is gentle yet powerful. By simply placing the hands on or above various positions on the head and body, for several minutes each, the energy flows through the body restoring it to health.
