Acupuncture is a 3,000-year-old healing technique of Traditional Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture works by improving the body’s functions and promoting our body’s natural self-healing process. Acupuncture achieves this by stimulating specific anatomic sites with the insertion of fine, sterile needles into the skin.
Traditional Chinese Medicine is based on an ancient philosophy that describes the universe — and our body — in terms of two opposing forces: The Yin and Yang (rhymes with “thin and long”).
When Yin and Yang are in balance, the body is healthy and functioning well. In a balanced body, energy — called Qi (“chee”) — flows along specific pathways throughout the body, known as meridians. This healthy flow of energy keeps the Yin and Yang forces balanced. But if the flow of energy gets blocked, this disruption can lead to pain, reduced function or illness. Acupuncture helps release blocked Qi in the body and stimulates the body’s own natural healing response
The World Health organization has found that acupuncture has proven deeply beneficial for a wide range of illnesses and issues, including:
We are all born with the ability to move the way we were designed to. Over the years, we can lose touch with our body’s natural motion — which can cause inflexibility and pain. The Feldenkrais Method uses gentle movement and directed attention to improve movement and enhance the body’s function. This method increases your ease and range of motion, improves flexibility and coordination and can help you “rediscover” your innate capacity for graceful and efficient movement. The Feldenkrais Method allows you to live your life more fully, efficiently and comfortably.
