Imagine that someone tells you that there is a type of medicine that can proactively help support your body in healing itself. In addition, this type of medicine can prevent illness from occurring. Imagine being told – you will feel better and build a foundation of health and wellness for your body.
This medicine does not involve taking any chemicals or synthetic pills. There are no gimmicks or false claims. It’s not a quick fix or a “one size fits all” medicine.
Imagine being able to achieve this while relaxing in a quiet room with soothing music, dimmed lights and warm bed underneath you. Imagine coming out of this room feeling refreshed and rejuvenated; knowing you have done something good for yourself!
What if someone told you that there are many different health concerns this medicine can address. From subtle issues like insomnia, fatigue or anxiety to more chronic health concerns like inflammation, autoimmune issues and cancer.
Are you wondering what this medicine is?
The medicine is Traditional Chinese Medicine and its most well respected tool – Acupuncture!
Acupuncture is an amazing healing modality! For those who are not familiar with how it works – It is an energy medicine based on the theory of Qi Energy – which is found within us and around us. Qi energy is thought to be an underlying force which allows our breath to happen, digestion to occur and underlies o thinking , feeling and movement within our body. Qi energy is within us and around us.
Qi energy protects us, promotes our body’s ability to heal and has the ability to support us in preventing illness from occurring! Think of your body as a house with a foundation. If the foundation is wobbly or unstable, it is more likely that the house will not be stable or survive the elements. Much like a house, we have our own foundation that we need to take care of. Qi energy is our foundation.
We cultivate and take care of our qi energy through the food we eat, the air we breathe, the supplements we take.
Acupuncture is a very important way to manage our qi as it promotes the balance of qi energy in our body. How do we know the qi is out of balance? By looking at symptoms – such as waking up in the middle of the night, feeling cold (or hot), bloating or irritability, we can begin to understand imbalances in our body. All symptoms are symptoms of qi imbalances.
Many people are fearful of acupuncture because of the “needles”. However, almost everyone who tries acupuncture realizes that the needles are so small, so gentle that they are often not even felt when inserted.
Wintertime is hard on our body. The cold weather outside effects the balance of our qi energy inside. Many people feel the effects of winter in subtle ways – such as feeling more tired, depressed, and slower digestion. Others find themselves getting sick more often.
It is easier than taking a pill, more relaxing that working out at the gym, simpler than waiting to get into a doctor’s office. If it is not on your bucket list – it should be! Try acupuncture! Why not! Why not now!!
