Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an energy-based medicine that uses thin needles to move qi (pronounced ‘chi’) throughout the body to facilitate healing. Qi can be seen as a vital life force, giving spirit to all living things. Traditional Chinese Medicine utilizes acupuncture points located along meridians, or energetic pathways, that run vertically over the body. These meridians are interconnected and allow practitioners to use local and distal points in their treatments to balance yin & yang. The free flow of qi brings harmony to mind, body, and spirit, and allows healing to begin on a cellular level.

Acupuncture benefits both physical and emotional imbalances including pain, sleep, mood, energy, and digestion. This ancient medicine takes a holistic point of view and treats the body as an organic whole. Yin & yang imbalances can be caused by stress, pollution, poor diet, emotional upsets, or infection. Many times, improvement in one area will begin a cascade of health benefits as the body synergistically works to achieve balance. Taoist views believe restoring balance between yin & yang strengthens the body’s resistance to pathogens as well as increasing blood flow and reducing pain. Esoteric acupuncture uses traditional acupuncture points in conjunction with the chakra system to clear blockages for vibrational alignment.

Every person responds differently to acupuncture – some will experience immediate results while others may need a standard course of treatment to achieve their goals. Every treatment plan is customized and may include other modalities such as herbals or cupping. Your practitioner may also advise you to make specific changes to your diet, such as avoiding spicy foods or alcohol. Food is believed to either ‘heat’ or ‘cool’ the constitution, making dietary changes an important part of the healing process.

I had a terrible cough for years after a surgery and none of the prescriptions my regular doctors gave me worked. Danielle made me a custom herbal formula after one of her acupuncture treatments. I had never tried herbs before, so I had no idea what to expect. My cough improved after the first week, and within 3 weeks, my cough was completely gone!! I have been using herbs ever since and recommend this kind of medicine to everyone I know.

I was skeptical at first, but giving myself the opportunity to get out of my comfort zone was one of the best things I’ve done. I deal with back spasms and constant stiffness daily. Not only has this assisted in alleviating pain, but I’ve touched my toes 3 times today with ZERO cracks. It’s flowing well enough to stack me with more energy now, too.

Danielle is amazing! I went to her hoping to release stress & treat my TMJ syndrome & joint pain. She performed a unique combination of acupuncture and sound therapy. It was SO relaxing & much needed! I left free of all my tension & pain, & I even noticed I’d slept better following the treatment. I felt so refreshed that I decided to treat myself monthly.
