Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine

AcupuntureAccording to Oriental medicine, the body is governed by energy and divided into meridians. When Energy is deficient, in excess or stuck, pain and illness happen. There are 12 major meridian channels, each corresponding to a specific organ system and flows in a specific direction and has divergent meridians. Acupuncture and herbal formulas work to balance the energy flow in these meridians and therefore the organs they correspond to.

Dr. Dawn has used traditional acupuncture for over 30 years and studied Qi energy therapies alongside this traditional approach. Each acupuncture session is enhanced with Qi Gong energy to assist the body in rebalancing itself to a healthy set point.

Acupuncture sessions involve the insertion of very fine sterile needles into acupuncture points to activate & open energy channels enhancing your own healing power.  Your body will balance energy as it’s intelligence guides the work to unblock energy and tonify various organs that need assistance. Treatments usually take  20-30 minutes and are gentle and relaxing.
