The goal of acupuncture is to wake up and support the body’s innate healing capabilities, to work with the natural processes that are imbued in the body without considering whether they’re there because of evolution, creationism, intelligent design, or any other reason.

It is known that the body has acu-pressure points called “tsubo” that can receive the pressing by the practitioner, the muscle gives way to the penetrating force to let it enter, rather than being pushed away by pressure. The result is an entirely different experience than mere finger-pressing. The practitioner is required to have the correct body position in relation to the recipient and be mindful of the technique being used.
Once you understand that Qi is a part of the body’s physiology, you can appreciate that an acupuncture treatment is a medical procedure that aims to correct an imbalance. If a patient comes in with foot pain, the acupuncturist will use needles to clear out the blocked meridians like a doctor will use a stent to clear a blocked blood vessel. If a patient comes in for anxiety, infertility, or any other issues that aren’t directly related to the musculoskeletal system, the acupuncturist is still going to follow the same logic, choosing acupuncture points that direct blood flow to certain areas of the body and bring the body back into balance.
AAT can help with a wide range of symptoms associated with allergies and sensitivities. These can include respiratory symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, or congestion, or digestive symptoms like bloating, reflux, IBS, or nausea, or even skin symptoms like rashes, eczema, or hives, along with many other symptoms.

AAT was developed from over 28 years of clinical research, and it does not rely on the use of medications, herbal remedies, avoidance or supplements. Instead, the therapy involves a series of gentle and painless treatments that are tailored to each patient’s specific needs. These treatments use a combination of acupressure and chiropractic principles that access the organ systems, calm the sympathetic nervous system and help to reprogram the body to longer react inappropriately to harmless substances.
Shiatsu can be performed while the recipient lies on a massage table allowing the practitioner access from all sides and the ability to apply pressure using body weight. No massage oils or lotions are used or needed because the practitioner does not slide along the body surface, but gives a series of presses along the meridian lines.
