Acupuncture utilizes the insertion of tiny needles along the body’s energy pathways to restore natural balance and improve health.
Research shows that acupuncture can help relieve a wide range of physical and psychological conditions. It can increase the body’s ability to release its own natural painkillers; endorphins and serotonin. A course of treatment benefits many ailments including musculoskeletal pain, migraine headaches, stress, anxiety, depression, sleep issues, gastrointestinal disorders, allergies, skin conditions and asthma. Acupuncture and herbal medicine can also be used to treat autoimmune conditions, addiction, side effects of cancer treatments and to enhance fertility. Some even utilize acupuncture for cosmetic purposes!
Dakini Acupuncture’s intention is to provide comprehensive acupuncture treatment and herbal therapy to those who desire greater well-being in terms of physical, psychological and spiritual health.
It is also a community resource, educating about the benefits of maintenance and preventative healthcare. Patient care is gentle and compassionate and tailored to meet an individual’s current needs. Our bodies are viewed as an interconnection of many parts including the aspect of mind. Treatments consider a person’t underlying constitution and current imbalances to effectively target the root causes of dis-ease thereby restoring harmony and wellness.
What is a Dakini?
A dakini is a Tibetan meditational deity which represents the female embodiment of spiritual energy. She is a messenger of healing and wisdom. Acupuncture is a form of healing which addresses physical and emotional illnesses by balancing the body’s meridians – channels that conduct source energy. When there are disruptions in these energy flows, the body cannot heal itself. The resulting disease and discomfort needs to be addressed at the level of qi (life force energy that impacts all our bodily processes) to restore balance on all levels. This subtle and powerful holistic medicine supports a most thriving lifestyle.
