Benefits of Acupuncture for Adults and Children
Acupuncture is the insertion of small, hair-sized needles into acupuncture points to correct imbalances in the flow of “qi” or life energy. Qi circulates through what acupuncturists call “channels or meridians” – these meridians communicate between the brain and the body’s skeletal structures and organs. Factors such as stress, trauma, inflammation and unhealthy lifestyle impede and upset this communication. For children, needles are not always used and there are a number of other modalities that are non-invasive and gentle. See Pediatric Acupuncture for more details.
The acupuncture points where the needles are inserted are small areas of increased electrical sensitivity. By stimulating these points, multiple biological responses occur throughout the body, allowing the body to regain the natural ability to heal itself and return to homeostasis.

Digestive: Gastritis, Irritable bowel syndrome, Hepatitis, Hemorrhoids

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture uses points on the body and the face to stimulate circulation and blood flow to enhance the appearance of the face and decrease fine lines and wrinkles. Our unique approach, that will not be found anywhere else, is that we combine our facial treatments with a 30 minute Hyperbaric Oxygen therapy treatment to oxygenate the body, hydrate the body and enhance the lasting effects. Treatments include a detailed intake, understanding the present state of the body, stress and health. Then using both Ayurvedic and Chinese principles, a treatment strategy is designed to achieve beauty and wellness inside and out. Clients are taught Qi Gong principles of breathing and exercises to help maintain their health and taught a number of self-care techniques that will help with achieving this healthy glow. Homeopathic, Chinese Herbs and Nutraceutical supplements are suggested for ongoing wellness. Options to do facial acupuncture without hyperbaric oxygen are available.
Acupressure and acupuncture are effective ways of stimulating the body's innate healing mechanisms - decreasing inflammation and pain, increasing organ function, and improving energy and digestion (just to name a few).
Unlike medications, there are virtually no side effects.
Hundreds if not thousands of studies have been conducted that are helping us understand the physiological mechanisms and beneficial effects of acupoint stimulation. I see the benefits in my clinic. Whether I'm using acupuncture needles or phototherapy (low-level light therapy) IT WORKS!
Phototherapy (low level light therapy) can be used on acupuncture points to elicit specific biological responses - without putting any chemicals or substances into the body. This technology, initially developed for the military, simply initiates the body's innate healing mechanisms. Phototherapy can have a number of benefits that are listed here.
Feedback I have received and first hand experienced includes significant improvements in my energy, stamina and sleep. I have patched individuals in the hospital to help with sleep, digestion and calming the nervous system. My children have benefited directly from the patches including decrease in fevers, reduction in cough/cold symptoms, increased immunity and much more. My clients have raved of their benefits and I have been able to advance the trajectory of healing with these patches.
AcuGraph Meridian Analysis
During your comprehensive acupuncture session, Anisa will use a special diagnostic tool called AcuGraph Meridian Analysis. It detects imbalances in the acupuncture meridians, which can be root causes of illness and chronic health problems.
The AcuGraph is a diagnostic tool that is the “gold standard” in objectively measuring the energy in the acupuncture meridians. It provides a fast and efficient exam, intelligent analysis, and the most advanced treatment options.
With the data from your exam, we can easily track your progress and make recommendations to enhance your treatments with acupressure, dietary changes, and herbal medicine. Acugraph is included in your regular session fees.
The InBody Test provides a comprehensive view of body composition balance. Body water, proteins, minerals and body fat, which are the components of the human body closely relate to the status of our health. Using the method of quantitative analysis, these elements of body constitution analysis provide basic information for assessing the status of the body. This is included at no cost in the monthly membership package.
Laboratory Recommendations, Analysis, Testing
To get to the bottom of chronic or more serious medical conditions laboratory testing is often necessary. The more information we have, the most targeted our treatment can be to help speed recovery.
We will discuss which labs we recommend and you will pay the labs directly for these tests. Once we gotten and analyzed the results, we'll schedule a 30-minute lab consultation to review them with you along with your new healing program.
