The ancient healing practice of acupuncture is used for a wide range of conditions, such as pain, headaches, nausea, neuropathy and more. Acupuncture treatments are based on a Chinese system of healing that can restore qi (pronounced “chee”). A practitioner inserts needles at points along the meridians, where the energy pathway is close to the surface of the skin. Both the World Health Organization and the National Institutes of Health recognize that acupuncture can be a helpful part of a treatment plan for many illnesses.
Aromatherapy is the therapeutic use of plant-derived, aromatic essential oils to promote physical and psychological well-being. Aromatherapy is sometimes used in combination with massage and other therapeutic techniques as part of a holistic treatment approach. Aromatherapy can help alleviate symptoms such as anxiety, insomnia, nausea and pain.
Focused movement of the body, or movement therapy, can have a positive effect on body, mind and spirit. Movement therapy increases flexibility, relieves stress, strengthens muscles, improves coordination and reduces tension. Available mind-body classes include yoga, tai chi, singing bowls/meditation and mindfulness.
