Top 10 Reasons Why You Should Try Acupuncture

Acupuncture is an ancient Chinese modality that entails stimulating certain points on the body to alleviate pain, address various health conditions, and restore the body to balance and harmony. Most people are aware that acupuncture can reduce pain and treat musculoskeletal issues. They are often unaware however that acupuncture is a complete holistic medical model that treats virtually every medical condition, and is used as well to promote overall health and well-being and prevent disease from arising in the first place.

1. Promotes relaxation.

Interested in discovering what acupuncture can do for you?

On August 10th, join Dr. Frank Muscara, LAc, DACM for an afternoon of relaxation and renewal supported by acupuncture-enhanced restorative poses. You will be guided through a very slow, deeply therapeutic two-hour restorative yoga practice, during which you will receive two separate needling sessions. As you rest comfortably, needles will be inserted to gently access and move qi (life force or vital energy). The intention is to facilitate a deeper level of relaxation and provide a soft boost to encourage self-healing and restoration of personal balance. A community acupuncture model will be followed, and approximately 5-8 points will be selected from potential locations along the acupuncture meridians: arms/hands, legs/feet, face, or scalp.

To balance the dominant energies of late summer, fire (heart) and earth (spleen/stomach), this workshop will focus on heart opening and grounding poses and acupuncture protocols. Other benefits include stress reduction, physiological restoration and emotional balancing.
