Acupuncture  for pain relief, weight loss, anxiety and stress, hormones, fertility and more….

Relax Holistic has solutions for pain relief, weight loss, anxiety, stress, depression, fibromyalgia, infertility, headaches, joint pains, erectile dysfunction and all other ailments. Acupuncture is also an adjunct to medical treatments including cancer and chemotherapy.

Chronic pain may cause anxiety, weight gain and stress.

To make a diagnosis, the 12 pulse points on your wrists are evaluated , one for each organ in your body as well as your tongue.  The Acupuncturist will evaluate these findings as well as any other labs and a treatment plan is made. It may include herbal remedies and other modalities such as moxibustion or cupping or physical terapy.  The result of acupuncture is to achieve balance in the meridian organ systems. In other words, the body chemistry will become more balanced and symptoms will disappear.

The treatment session involves lying still while about five to twenty needles are inserted and left in place for 25 minutes. Most patients fall into  deep relaxation and wake up refreshed. Other recommended modalities may be infra-red light therapy, moxabustion, cupping, gua-sha, tui-na massage, ear seeds, muscle stim.

Acupuncture needles generally are so fine that they do not cause pain as associated with traditional western medicine.

Anxiety, Stress and Fibromyalgia

Pain, fatigue, tingling, and other fibromyalgia symptoms commonly trigger  panic attacks. The anxiety creates stress which has a powerful effect on the hormones in your body. This affects the immune system and triggers an inflammatory response to many allergens. Anxiety and stress cause more pain which creates more anxiety and the cycle continues. Acupuncture can break this cycle.

Treatments may help treat side effects of  medications, balance hormones and release endorphins to make you feel better.

 

NO Needle Acupuncture

For those who are afraid of the needles yet want the effects of acupuncture treatments, our Acupuncturists offer a no needle treatment. This consists of a traditional tongue and pulse diagnosis, an acupressure massage coupled with tuning fork meridian therapy, laser stim, cupping, tui-na or gua-sha muscle therapy.  Stimulation of the points in this way is just as effective as using  needles.

 

Arthritis

Acupuncture effectively  controls arthritis and joint inflammation when coupled with dietary improvements and massage therapy. With consistent treatment the immune system and circulation improves. Pain is reduced and flair ups are controlled.

 

Weight Loss

Acupuncture stimulates your body’s circulation and in turn, improves several factors known to contribute to obesity.  Studies show it can affect the part of your brain that feels hunger. Acupuncture reduces stress, releases endorphins and balances your body chemistry. The Acupuncturist will give at least 10 treatments to balance the systems of your body. The mind becomes more in sync with the body and abnormal food cravings are lessened. The Acupuncturist will make dietary and lifestyle suggestions and in many cases the weight starts to fall off.
