As a Western trained physician, treating disease was the focus of most of my formal medical education. But my real love in medicine has always been exploring different energy systems to stimulate and improve the flow of energy (Chi) throughout the body/mind/spirit pathways. The Eastern medicine concept of treating the energy systems of the body, while still addressing lifestyle and physical issues, makes so much sense to me.
Lifestyle changes such as regular exercise, a clean diet, drinking more water, much more sleep, stretching, deep breathing, being grateful, releasing old emotional trauma, time in the woods, etc. improves health in large part by stimulating energy flow in and around the body. Clearly, energy flow is very important for good health.
These sessions are not intended to treat a specific illness or medical problem but rather improve energy flow throughout the body/mind/spirit matrix. Most individuals experience a deep relaxation response and many report major improvements in physical and emotional health issues. However, these sessions are not a substitute for regular health care by a primary care physician.
The 1 1/4 hour long program will take place at InStill Wellness, 5301 Forest Dr, Suite A, New Albany (next to the N/A Surgical Center). They are structured to accommodate two people at the same time allowing friends/family to share the experience while making the session more affordable ($70/person). You may also schedule an individual session ($120).
Starting in the fall, an hour program emphasizing chanting with the Himalayan bowls will be offered one Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 pm. each month. The cost will be $25/person with a limit of 7 participants each session.
All sessions will take place Tuesday afternoons, times to vary. For further information or to register, please call my office at 740-392-6098.
Important Notes: These sessions must be prepaid and are non-refundable. However, they can be transferred to another person by calling our office prior to the day of the session.
Individuals need to wear loose clothing so that pants and shirts can be rolled above the knees and elbows respectively. Acupuncture points in the legs, feet, arms, hands, face and ears will be stimulated with thin acupuncture needle insertion.
These sessions are very safe with few side effects, most of which occur with the initial insertion of the acupuncture needles. Most patients find the session deeply relaxing. Participants will be laying on yoga mats on the floor, so you need to be physically able to get down on the floor and up again.
Because of chemical sensitivities, please refrain from wearing perfumes, colognes or scents of any kind. Please arrive 15 minutes early so the session can begin promptly.
