Common Reasons People Seek Treatment

Can Acupuncture and Craniosacral Therapy help my condition?

Everyone can benefit from Acupuncture and Craniosacral Therapy. Both can be used to relieve a great variety of symptoms and conditions, as well as to preserve health and increase well-being.

As holistic medical systems, the emphasis is on prevention and treating causes, not just suppressing symptoms.  The physical, mental and spiritual aspects of a person are considered closely interconnected and equally important approaches in treatment.

Just a few of the many common reasons people seek treatment:

Pain (muscular, skeletal, nerve etc.)

Headaches and migraines

Women’s Health and Fertility (OBGYN):

Digestive Disorders

Respiratory Problems/Frequent Colds/ Low Immunity

Stress, Anxiety and Depression

Pain:

Regardless of the location of the pain, whether it is in your low back, neck, knees, arms, legs, etc., both acupuncture and craniosacral therapy are highly effective means of offering relief AND more importantly of treating the root cause to ensure that the pain does not return. It has been shown that acupuncture in particular, can cause a release of natural steroids and endorphins, which serve to decrease inflammation, and reduce the sensation of pain. If you are living with pain, or are trying to mask pain with prescription drugs or over the counter medication, both forms of holistic treatment can help you in a safe, natural way, without negative side effects.

Headaches and Migraines:

  • Tension Headaches

  • Sinus related headaches

  • Trauma-Related Headaches

  • Frequent Headaches: top of the head, sides of the head, behind the eyes, all over the head

  • Migraines: with halos, light sensitivity, nausea, vomiting, excruciating pain

Headaches are common warning signals that the body is out of balance. Many headache and migraine medications may provide some relief by temporarily masking the symptoms, but do not address the root cause of the problem. Fortunately, there is an alternative to harsh medications and their side effects.

Both Acupuncture and Craniosacral therapy can both be effective in the treatment of many types of headaches in some of the following ways:

  • To correct hormonal imbalances that may be causing headaches

  • To release natural endorphins and steroids, reducing pain sensation and inflammation

  • To stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system to counterbalance stress with a relaxation response.

  • To help relax muscles around the face, jaw and neck that may be causing constriction and reducing blood flow in the head.

A careful health history and physical examination will help the practitioner determine the nature and appropriate treatment for your individual situation.

Respiratory Problems/Frequent Colds/ Low Immunity

Respiratory problems can be treated very effectively with acupuncture and craniosacral therapy. If you have a cold or flu, one or two treatments can help you feel remarkably better. If you get frequent colds every winter, or colds that drag on or lead to bronchitis, treatments can help to strengthen the underlying weakness so that you recover quickly and completely, and the colds do not return. Chronic allergies, asthma, and sinusitis can also be treated without the negative side effects like feeling drowsy, spacey, or that many people experience with over-the-counter medications.

Stress, Anxiety and Depression

Acupuncture and craniosacral can be a wonderful support for anyone who is going through a hard time, or suffering from the stresses of busy modern life. Both are safe and gentle treatments that work to address the underlying root cause of the emotional/ physical imbalance, and seek to restore proper equilibrium in the body.  Acupuncture has been found to stimulate the parasympathetic nervous system, as well as the release of natural endorphins.  Most people feel deeply relaxed, and sense an improvement in their mood and ability to focus almost with in 1-2 treatments.
