Acupuncture is an ancient whole system medicine treatng just about every ailment and disorder in the human experience. In modern western terms, acupuncture uses very thin needles, about the size of a human hair, to optmize the bodies natural bio-electrical communicaton, encouraging cellular communicaton within the whole body. Traditonally speaking, acupuncture brings balance and harmony to the natural fow of Qi (sounds like chi) in the body. All illness and pain stems from an imbalance (whether it is stagnaton, defciency, or excess) and manifests as specifc symptoms that can be treated more efciently when the cause of the imbalance is understood. Traditonal Chinese Medicine (TCM) not only consists of acupuncture, but also herbal treatments, Tui na (Chinese medical massage), cupping, moxibuston, and Gua sha (promotng healthy circulaton). In China, TCM uses herbs for about 80% of treatments and acupuncture about 20% of the tme. Here in the United States, those percentages are generally fipped.

Tui Na (sounds like twee na), is Chinese Medical Massage. Tui Na, along with acupuncture and Chinese herbal medicine, are the main components of Traditional Chinese Medicine. As such, Tui Na can be used to treat specific areas, or it can be used to improve the overall Qi or energy flow throughout the body. Because Tui Na is a complete system, the treatment often helps both these components at the same time. Tui Na is thought to be the oldest system of bodywork practiced today.

Lymphatic Massage

Well Living Massage

Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) is a gentle massage that uses light pressure to help encourage drainage of lymph that can accumulate in your lymphatic system. It helps detoxify your body's immune system, as well as stimulate it to help the system wrok more effectively. There are many benefits from MLD. The lypmhatic system plays a key role in the body's immune defense. Like blood in the circulatory system, lymphatic fluid is always moving. If it stops, swelling can occur, often in the legs and arms. MLD also reduces bloating, brain fog, tiredness, allergies, and digestive problems.

Reiki

Schedule with Laura at 
Harmony Hands Reiki

Reiki is a hands-on, natural, energetic healing using the universal life force energy. The term comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” which means vital life force energy that flows through all living things. Reiki, an abundant, gentle spiritual energy is not tied to any specific religion or nationality. At the simplest level, it appears that Reiki treatment helps lessen the impact of stress, releasing tension from the entire system. Not only does a person move toward their own balance in body, mind and spirit, the body's own healing mechanisms often begin functioning more effectively.

Cupping has been all the rage since Michael Phelps had cupping marks during the olympics in 2016. Cupping is actually an anceint form of bodywork used in multiple cultures for thousands of years. Traditional Chinese Medicine has been the culture to bring it into our current everyday use. It is a technique that uses suction on the body to move stagnant blood and tight tissue. It is common to have circular "bruise" or "hickey" marks left in the area the cup was. When used with massage, cupping can be a great adjunct to pain management. In Chinese Medicine, cupping can be used for boosting the immune system, reducing edema, and many other things alongside of pain management.

Moxa (short for moxabustion) is an important tool in Chinese Medicine. It is an herb in the sage family that is burned over the body bringing deep warmth and immediate comfort. Moxa is good for many different health issues. We most commonly use moxa it in the clinic for women's health and digestive issues. If you ever enter the center and smell a smokey essence, moxa and its amazing medicinal qualities is the source.

CranioSacral

Schedule with Laura at 
Harmony Hands Reiki

CranioSacral Therapy is an extremely gentle manual therapy that helps to release restrictions that impede the function of the membranes and fluids that surround your brain and spinal cord known as your craniosacral system. CranioSacral Therapy treatment may provide relief from a variety of symptoms including headaches, neck pain and side effects of cancer treatment among many others. A practitioner works with the bones of the skull and the pelvis, releasing tensions deep in the central nervous system so that every other system in the body can relax and self-correct. It helps you naturally free yourself from pain, stress, and discomfort. This affects, in turn, the deeper layers of membranes and cerebrospinal fluids in the spinal canal, the brain, and the spinal cord itself.

Myofascial Release

Schedule with Debra at
Red Cedar Healing

A highly specialized stretching technique used by therapists to treat patients with a variety of soft tissue problems. Fascia is a thin tissue that covers all the organs of the body. This tissue covers every muscle and every fiber within each muscle. All muscle stretching, then, is actually stretching of the fascia and the muscle, the myofascial unit. When muscle fibers are injured, the fibers and the fascia which surrounds it become short and tight. This uneven stress can be transmitted through the fascia to other parts of the body, causing pain and a variety of other symptoms in areas often wouldn’t expect. Myofascial Release treats these symptoms by releasing the uneven tightness in injured fascia.

Herbs are an important part of Chinese Medicine. In China, Chinese Medicine is 80% herbs and 20% acupuncture. An herbal consult with Emily can really help to get to the root of stubborn issues lingering in the body.

Electro-Acupuncture

Call to book an appointment with acupuncture 715-227-3486

Before the discovery of electricity, an acupuncturist was often expected to manually manipulate or twist acupuncture needles placed within their patient at various speeds (eg; 2 times per second). This often resulted in greater effectiveness of the treatment for certain cases. Now, we can use specially designed electronics to recreate and embellish those earlier techniques with greater accuracy and efficiency. Electro-acupuncture can be very effective in resolving chronic pain, chronic headaches, and other conditions.

Sacred Dance

The practice of sacred dance and movement is to tap into the body’s innate wisdom to heal itself through movement, dance and music. It opens your heart and frees your mind by allowing the body to move as it wants to be moved. It can increase physical vitality and reduce stress levels inspired by and through selected music. Classes provide a strong sense of community and a chance to be accepted as you are, moving just the way you do, while encouraging an opportunity for self-acceptance. The theory behind this practice is that when you put the psyche into motion, it will heal itself. Participants of all ages and abilities dance barefoot in comfortable, loose fitting clothing through a series of chosen music which begins slowly and introspectively progressing to faster rhythms encouraging release; ultimately returning to a slower rhythmic pace to allow for emotional and physical integration. Recommended donation of $12

Sound Baths

The use of sound for healing goes back to ancient times and in modern times is found to bring about profound states of relaxation and renewed well-being. The feeling aspect of sound is experienced through instruments such as chimes, singing bowls, and tuning forks—where applied sound is directed on the body for healing. Sound healing with tuning forks is a non-invasive, complementary therapy to help balance and harmonize the body’s vital energy centers.
