Acupuncture is one of the most effective ways to unblock energy flow and restore the body to a state of balance and harmony. Fine needles are inserted into the body at very precise points along energetic channels. The number of needles utilized, type of needle and length of time they are used for varies depending on the client’s individual case. Acupuncture has been used for nearly every form of disharmony known. As patients heal during treatment, they often describe profound feelings of peace, clarity and self-awareness. At this time, Pulse does not have an acupuncturist on staff.
Amma Therapy is a specialized form of bodywork that combines energetic, rhythmic massage to the energetic channels with precise pressure to specific acupressure points based on client’s needs and assessment. Where the acupuncturist sets needles on the points the Amma Therapist relies on the strength and sensitivity of their hand to access points. These treatments are energizing while calming and improve balance and health. Amma Therapists are trained in the principles of Holistic Nutrition and the use of Chinese herbs. $65-85
Chinese (Asian) Medicine
Chinese (or Asian) Medicine is an ancient system of healthcare made up of several therapies including Acupuncture, Asian Bodywork (Amma Therapy), herbs, and holistic dietary recommendations. These therapies are all based in the concept of Qi (pronounced chee). Qi is all around us and makes up everything, all movement and all form. In the body, Qi helps to regulate the person’s spiritual, emotional and physical well-being and is a part of all bodily functions. Disharmonies and disease occur when our Qi is out of balance. Using the assessment tools of Yin/Yang theory, 5 Elements, 8 Principles and tongue/pulse diagnosis your practitioner can identify your patterns of disharmony and thereby treat them at the root of their cause. Presently, most of the practitioners at Pulse Holistic Health practice Chinese medicine. $65-85
Holistic Nutritional Counseling
Dietary habits are the simplest, most profound change that we can make in taking responsibility for our health. The key is using moderation; there is no ‘perfect’ diet and our nutritional needs shift with the seasons, life stages, and times of illness. By understanding the energetic principles of food and modern food wisdom, the practitioners at Pulse Holistic Health can help carve out a nutritional regime that will help you to optimum health. A daily requirement we must partake in, our relationship to food should be one that nourishes mind, body and soul. Whatever your particular dietary concerns, the practitioners at Pulse Holistic Health can help you ‘balance your diet’. $65-85
Herbal medicine has been effectively used for more than 3000 years in China and worldwide. Herbal recommendations are specific to the client and can only be made after an Asian Medicine evaluation by appointment.
