Acupuncture has been proven in Western scientific studies to treat a broad spectrum of health concerns. The World Health Organization acknowledges acupuncture as an effective treatment for health challenges, including joint injuries, knee/back pain, women’s health and pregnancy issues, headache, rheumatoid arthritis, and so much more. We like to say "If you can name it, we can help treat it"!
Whether you have sustained an injury playing sports, have gotten into a motor vehicle accident, are recovering from surgery, or have repetitive stress injuries from working at your desk, acupuncture can assist in relieving any pain you might be experiencing. Acupuncture works with your body to lower inflammation and allow the body to heal painful areas naturally.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine, we believe that there are rivers of energy that course through the body like rivers of water. When life serves up a stressful situation, be it emotional, mental, or physical trauma, that flow of energy becomes congested, blocked, or stuck and overflows into new channels. Acupuncture helps to re-establish good energetic flow by dilating blood vessels and allowing nutrients to go where they are needed. The goal of this process is to restore balance.
Our primary goal here at Elements Holistic Wellness, is to provide the ultimate in relaxation and body balance restoration. Healing energetic medicine if you will. We know you will be seeing us for more than one visit, as acupuncture is a cumulative medicine. This is why we have taken the time to create an intentional environment with Feng Shui, gem therapy, and aroma essentials, providing a nurturing private space for healing. Relaxation, revitalization, and restoration will be yours at the conclusion of your treatment.
