Acupuncture: Encouraging the body’s natural healing powerAcupuncture involves using the insertion of fine needles into specific points to stimulate and rebalance the body’s flow of Qi, encouraging the body’s natural healing power. The additional use of essential oils on these points potentiates the acupuncture technique.
The use of acupuncture therapy can support our best aspirations for ourselves and create a sense of well being. When we are at ease, we are able to stay connected to what has heart and meaning for us – instead of reacting or reverting to old patterns. When the obstructions or tensions are released, there’s more energy available to respond to what’s truly important.
