Acupuncture is best known for treating ailments like pain, allergies or anxiety, but there has also been interest in using needles to enhance beauty. Every time a needle is inserted into the skin, the body sees it as a microinjury and increases circulation to the area involved. This is beneficial for something like an old injury producing chronic discomfort, but it also has implications for skin health and aging. Cosmetic acupuncture and microneedling are two of the most popular techniques that take advantage of this response, and they are each fairly different.

True food allergies

Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) can effectively alleviate these sensitivity symptoms, enabling you to enjoy your favorite foods once again, without the need for supplements, medications or avoidance. It’s important to distinguish food sensitivities from true food allergies. While true allergies involve an immune system response, sensitivities do not, though the symptoms may appear similar or identical. Symptoms stemming from food sensitivities are more common and affect a significantly higher percentage of the population compared to food allergies. According to medical evidence, true food allergies account for only about 3% to 5% of adults and 4% to 6% of children.

Circulation of Qi-energy

Consistent with the basic concepts of Traditional Oriental Medicine, Shiatsu is grounded in the theory that health problems are attributed to imbalances in Yin (Negative) and Yang (Positive), disharmonies between the internal organs, and blockage to the circulation of Qi-energy (life force energy) through the meridians.

In TCM, the body has a system of meridians through which Qi and Blood flow, and acupuncture aids in making sure the meridians stay clear and the body’s internal harmony stays balanced. Most people can accept the analogy of the meridian being like a blood vessel in which blood flows. If blood doesn’t flow smoothly through the arteries, veins, and capillaries, a blockage can cause serious complications like heart attacks and strokes. The concept of Qi is usually the hangup here.

Advanced Allergy Therapeutics (AAT) provides effective solutions to help you overcome your food sensitivities and regain the pleasure of eating without discomfort. Every day, millions of individuals in the United States experience the challenges of food sensitivities, which can manifest in a range of symptoms such as rashes, bloating, congestion, runny nose, headaches, aches and pains, fatigue, and mood swings. Identifying food sensitivities can be a complex task since symptoms may arise hours or even days after consumption. The prevalence of food sensitivities is significant, affecting a substantial portion of the population.

Meridian lines of Shiatsu

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.

The Goal of Acupuncture

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.

Try AAT to enjoy outdoors

AAT is effective in treating the many symptoms associated with environmental triggers. The AAT treatment is effective since it addresses the organ systems involved in the reaction to a harmless substance, thus reducing the associated symptoms. And the best part? AAT does not rely on the use of medications or herbal remedies, meaning no more grogginess or drowsiness from allergy medicine! So why not try AAT and see if it can help you get back to enjoying the great outdoors and spending time with your furry friends?

Shiatsu for Immune system

Shiatsu works directly to calm the autonomic nervous system, which has the effect of calming nervous distress and increasing resistance to stress. By promoting blood and lymph circulation, Shiatsu helps to maintain healthy muscle tone and internal organ functions, and strengthen the immune system.

Needles correct an imbalance

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.
