Auricular Acupuncture/Ear Seeds
There are as many as two hundred acupuncture points on the outer ear, each point named generally after areas of our anatomy, i.e. knees, hips, shoulders, liver, heart etc.
The outer ear acts like a switchboard to the brain. Each acupoint on the ear, when treated, triggers electrical impulses, from the ear, via the brain, to the specific area of the body that is being treated. Therefore if someone had a painful knee, for example, by treating the ‘knee’ acupoint on the ear, it would help alleviate the pain.
Auricular seeds may be placed on specific points and retained after patient receives a treatment, and staying in place for up to five days.
Common treatments are for drug rehabilitation, stop smoking, and weight loss (used in combination with body acupuncture).
This provides electrical stimulation to two to eight acupuncture needles. Can be used for pain relief and muscle pain.
Also very effective in increasing circulation for weightloss acupuncture, and excellent for use with drug addictions.
Pain and other illnesses stem from the stagnation of circulation in the muscles and body tissues. Cupping improves the circulation in these areas and pain is alleviated and underlying health issues are often helped.
Cupping involves applying glass cups to the body. This is done by waving a burning cotton ball, that has been soaked in alcohol, t
hrough the cup quickly to create a vacuum. You do not feel the heat, but you will feel the cup pull up on the skin. Once attached, the cups will be left on between 5-10 minutes, and removed by pressing down on the skin to let the air out. They may leave a mark on the body, which could last between 2-12 days depending on the condition. This is a useful diagnostic tool! Depending on how dark the mark is, it indicates how much stagnation there is within the muscles.
Cupping helps such issues as generalized pain, injuries of the back/shoulders/neck, herniated discs, disc degeneration, arthritis, and other conditions such as asthma, colds and flus, insomnia, detoxification, weight loss, and many other concerns.
Vibrational Tuning Forks
We use vibrations from precision-calibrated tuning forks that access and travel through the body’s meridian and chakra systems. It uses the same philosophies as acupuncture, but is non-invasive because there are no needles involved. Each fork is tuned to the orbital frequency of a specific celestial body. The vibrating forks are placed on acupuncture points and/or directly on the pain source to treat a wide variety of physical, emotional/psychological, and psycho-spiritual issues.
