Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) emphasizes a holistic approach that treats the whole person, unlike Western medicine, which attempts to separate the disease from the person. The practice of Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is rooted in ancient Taoist philosophy which views a person as an energy system in which body and mind are unified, each influencing and balancing the other.
The ancient science and philosophy is based on the idea that Qi (pronounced “chee”), or energy, flows in rhythms throughout the universe. Energetic pathways, known as meridians, conduct Qi throughout the body. Stimulation of points along the meridians triggers endorphins, which are the body’s natural pain relievers, relaxes muscles, increases blood circulation and opens the energetic pathways. This heightens the function of all body systems and increases vitality and well-being. As the body’s energy becomes balanced, it can begin to heal itself and most conditions can be corrected or improved.

From a Chinese medical point of view the emotions play a big part in a person’s total health and well-being. There are five main emotions considered when diagnosing an illness – anger, joy, worry, sorrow/grief, fear and each emotion is connected to a particular organ system. The environments we live and work in also play a part in supporting our health.
Emotions have a way of affecting the way we feel on a physical level. For example, when we feel good our body releases endorphins, hormones and enzymes that boost our immune systems. The opposite is true when we are stressed, angry or ill. Have you ever considered the possibility that the thoughts you are thinking, not only effect you, but also the people around you?
When we are surrounded by toxic thoughts and negativity it can have a negative impact on our health and impair our body’s resistance to illness. Even excessive expression of a positive emotion such as “joy” can create an imbalance in our system. Emotions also have a way of “holding” illness in our bodies. In many chronic health conditions, there is often an emotional element combined with a physical trauma that has triggered the illness.
In this age of mass communication and computers we are faced with a whole different set of stressors than in earlier times. Through the media, everything going on in the world- the good, the bad and the ugly, is now in our living rooms. Every human being is affected by these events on an emotional level. Collectively as a society we are experiencing a range of emotions from anger to anxiety to even joy. From a biochemical standpoint, the hormones adrenaline and cortisol are released into the system when faced with stressful situations, putting the body into “high alert”. Over a period of time, this too can weaken the immune system and the body’s ability to heal.

The Indian Summer continues with our record heat, sudden showers and winds! As the month progresses, we make out way into the Fall season on September 22nd. The Fall Equinox is the counter point to the Spring Equinox where there are exactly 12 hours of daylight to 12 hours of darkness at the equator.
During this season, the temperature begins to cool, the light begins to change, and we begin the journey into the quieter times of the year. We have reaped the harvest and start the process of fortifying our stores for the winter. During this time of year, the energy moves inward and downward as we prepare for the resting winter months. Nature illustrates this beautifully as the leaves fall from the trees. It is time to let go of the old energy to make room for the next cycle of life.
Fall Seasonal Event
Be sure to join us on September 24th from 9am-5pm for our annual Fall Seasonal Acupuncture Event. The seasonal treatments are a great way to try acupuncture for the first time, boost your immune system, and to feel more balanced and in harmony with the energy of the season.
In Chinese Medicine, each season is connected to a particular element and organ system in the body. Fall is connected to the Metal element and related to the lungs and large intestine. The associated emotion is grief, the taste is pungent /spicy, and the color is white. During this time of year, Seasonal flare ups such as allergies, sinus issues, coughing, constipation, and skin rashes can become more prevalent. Be sure and get your Seasonal boost, and enjoy the energy of the coming months!
We will also be featuring intuitive readings, raffles, mini far- infrared bio-mat chair sessions, and inspirational gifts from our store! All store items will be marked down 10-50% off retail price!

The Amethyst Bio-Mat is a medical device that uses a combination of Amethyst stones and fabrics to generate far infrared rays that are then transferred to the body as heat. Far infrared rays warm the body on the inside, increasing blood circulation and lymph flow. Negative ions are also generated by the layer of natural Tourmaline stone, which help neutralize the harmful effects of Electro-magnetic pollution and relieve stress. The temperature ranges between 95 F- 158 F.
If our body maintains a temperature of around 97 F or above we will usually have sufficient immune function and healthy enzyme activity within the body. Studies have shown that if our core body temperature should drop by only one degree, our immune function will begin to decline. If we increase our core temperature by only one degree, the opposite is true. Enzyme production increases by 40 %, thereby strengthening our immune function.
