Acupuncture is part of Traditional Chinese Medicine, originating approximately 4000 years ago. It is one of the oldest continually practiced medical systems in the world. This ancient art of healing involves the insertion of very fine needles into specific points on the body. Acupuncture works with the natural vital energies of the body to promote its ability to heal itself. The goal is to arrive at the root cause of the imbalance causing distress to the system. Once the block of energy is removed and the balance between the pathways is restored, the body will regain its harmony and issues will be resolved.
Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Japanese Healing Art which harmonizes the body, mind and Spirit. It utilizes a form of light touch on 26 specific locations on the body called Energy Locks. These energy locks tap into the 12 energy meridians. By selectively placing hands on the various sacred sites, we can harmonize or release the affected energy pathways. This will allow the body to reestablish balance and begin to heal at the deepest level of the system.
