Acupuncture with Tuning Forks

Are you afraid of needles?

Tuning forks are a non-invasive, energy based approach rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Psychology, Science and Sound. Precision calibrated tuning forks are applied on or over specific acupuncture points. trigger points, or points and area of pain.  

The sound waves and vibrations of the tuning forks travel deeply into the body along energy pathways that have been proven to impact the physical and emotional body. The rich resonance and vibration of these tuning forks connects with and supports the body's natural frequencies, stimulates and balances the body's physical and subtle energy field, and promotes wellness, deep inner harmony.  

Dr. John Beaulieu, author of Human Tuning Sound Healing with Tuning Forks, "The sound of your nervous system is an indicator of your current internal state and carries a lot of information. If you’re very stressed, for example, it will sound more shrill and intense. If you’re relaxed, it will sound more flowing and soft. Once you become used to the sound of your nervous system, you can use tuning forks to help you retune your body. More advanced users are able to open the gateway to different states of consciousness. It’s a tool to help you get in touch with your inner landscape and live with more awareness and richness. If you have health issues, the application of tuning forks to pressure points stimulates the release of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is made inside the vascular, nerve and immune cells and is rhythmically released into the surrounding tissues as a gas. It participates in the healthy functioning of all main organ systems and acts as a signaling molecule and attacking molecule neutralizing viruses, bacteria, and other free radicals. We’ve even tested it in laboratory experiments demonstrating the healing power of sound."

Amethyst BioMat Treatment

Other Therapies - Moore Acupuncture Center   神 in Chelmsford, MA

It is so wonderful, to relax on the massage table and receive the benefits of Amethyst BioMat solely alone or with acupuncture or while enjoying a sacred sound immersion.

The Amethyst BioMat was developed by a highly skilled group of scientists, medical professionals and engineers. It is a unique medical device which was developed based on NASA’s findings on the benefits of Far Infrared Rays (FIR) and on Nobel Prize winning research on Negative Ions. It combines FIR, Negative Ions and Amethyst Crystals to produce deep penetrating light energy and heat for a maximum sense of well being and healing.

While resting on this “bed of amethyst” you will experience deep relaxation in a Delta state and receive a molecular level massage, increased blood and lymph circulation, maximized enzyme activity, superior detoxification and decreased acidity for a more beneficial pH balance in the body. Benefits also include boosted immune function, rejuvenation of skin, relief from stress and pain, and elevated energy & vitality. 

What are far infrared rays? Far infrared rays are part of the electro-magnetic light spectrum and are close to the light frequency of natural sunlight. However, far infrared does not contain any of sunlight’s harmful UV/UVB radiation. The beneficial properties of far infrared light have received particular attention from the scientific community in recent years, although the first research conducted on this part of the light spectrum was undertaken by NASA decades ago. Today, health practitioners from a wide range of disciplines agree on the beneficial properties of far infrared technology.

What are negative ions? An ion is a particle containing an electrical charge. An ion with a negative electrical charge is called a negative ion, and this type of ion is now considered to be integral to healthy cellular function.

What does the BioMat do and how does it work? The Amethyst BioMat is a high-tech Negative Ion and Infrared Ray treatment system which emits negative Ions and Far Infrared Rays, contributing to a healthy life. The BioMat stimulates ion channels by producing negative ions that deliver energy to the cells of the body. The topmost layer of the BioMat is constructed of superconducting channels of pure amethyst, which allow the far infrared rays and negative ions to penetrate the body as far as seven inches. Amethyst has healing qualities that help with physical ailments, emotional issues, and in Energy Healing.

How does amethyst quartz enhance ionic and far infrared ray therapy?  Amethyst’s healing properties have been acknowledged and celebrated for centuries by ancient scientists, healers and others. Now, modern science has confirmed the highly conductive properties of this remarkable mineral. Amethyst crystals offer the most consistent and powerful delivery of far infrared light waves, and ionic effects to the human body.

Aromatherapy

Moore Acupuncture Center   神 offers safe, effective Acupuncture in Chelmsford, MA

Nature's gift for Emotional Well Being 

There is a strong and important connection between emotional and physical health. Emotional stress, whether sudden or prolonged can have profound effects upon the body. Grief, depression and anxiety each take their toll on the immune system and can cause a range of illnesses from digestive problems to sleep disorders. Aromatherapy has many practical healing advantages and works in several different ways, but perhaps one of the most fascinating in the relationship that it has with emotional wellbeing.

I is a fact that aromas have a direct impact on the emotions, through the olfactory system. Certain aromas can stimulate the hypothalamus - the part of the brain that controls the endocrine system and many body functions. The hypothalamus can then activate the pituitary gland, which produces hormones that can affect both the physical body and the emotions. In addition to their many other functions, Hormones influence emotions and behaviour. This makes aromatherapy a wonderful means for emotional healing and rebalancing moods.

Science quantifies the effect of essential oils on the human body using frequencies. For example: Lavender vibrates at 118 MHx and Peppermint vibrates at 78 MHx. We have a profound emotional intuitive relationship to scent. We can smell changes in weather, seasons and when animals are nearby Science tells us that everything is energy. There is a subtle bio-energy that flows through all of life. Given the technology we have today, we are able to measure the effects of essential oils have on the body using frequency. Essential oils create signals causing the brain to release neurotransmitters like serotonin, which link our nervous and other body systems to provide a feeling of relief.

Auricular Acupuncture (Ear Acupuncture)

Did you know... The ear is a microsystem of the entire body and when you stimulate specific points on the ear it can illicit a response elsewhere in the body... Some people even think of auriculotherapy as reflexology,, but on the ear!

The roots of Auriculotherapy date back thousands of years, finding their beginnings in Traditional Chinese Medicine. However, the entire microsystem of the ear was expanded upon and studied in tremendous detail starting in the 1950's by a french physician, Dr. Paul Nogier. According to The World Health Organization, the ear is "perhaps the most studied microsystem" of the entire body!

Cupping for Pain, Immunity and Digestion   Link

James Harrison NFL and Cupping Link

 

Kimberlee Moore offers Acupuncture in Chelmsford, MA

Cupping is an ancient technique, used in many cultures, in which a special cup is applied to the skin and held in place by suction. The suction brings tension and toxins to the surface of the skin from deep layers. Cupping brings fresh blood to the area and helps improve circulation. Cupping is great for back pain, asthma, colds, and more. 

Electroacupuncture & TENS & EMS

Electro-acupuncture

Electro-acupuncture, the application of a pulsating electrical current to acupuncture needles as a means of stimulating the acupoints, was developed in China.

While electro-acupuncture may be used as a component of almost all acupuncture treatments, it is has garnered especially good results regarding the treatment of neurological diseases, chronic pain, spasms, and paralysis. Also, holistic sports medicine commonly uses electro-acupuncture for injuries. Electro-acupuncture has been proven to promote the flow of qi and blood, relieve pain, and warm the muscles, removing blood stasis (a blockage, or poor circulation)

Dr. Oz: Electro-Acupuncture Link

TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation)

Why use a TENS machine?

TENS machines works by sending stimulating pulses across the surface of the skin and along the nerve strands. The stimulating pulses help prevent pain signals from reaching the brain. Tens devices also help stimulate your body to produce higher levels of its own natural painkillers, called "Endorphins".

-Drug free pain management

Stimulates your bodies release of natural pain killers similar to morphine (endorphins and encephalins) which reduces your sense of pain.
Electrical impulses created by the TENS can block some of the pain messages travelling to the brain.

EMS/STIM (Electrical Muscle Stimulator)

The EMS machine stands for Electrical Muscular Stimulation sometimes also called STIM. This machine can treat muscular conditions and improve sports performance. The EMS strengthens weak muscles by electronically stimulating muscles to contract. It can also be used to tone and improve circulation.

 

 

 

Flower Essence Therapy

Moore Acupuncture Center   神 offers safe, effective Acupuncture in Chelmsford, MA

Flower essences are not essential oils.   They are water-based remedies that catalyze changes in patterns manifesting themselves at any level: physical, emotional, mental, causal and spiritual . Flower essences are used for the healing of emotional issues, as well as energetically and spiritually. We recognize that we all have an emotional body that has great impact on our health and wellness. Flower essence therapy focuses on the balancing and healing of the body, mind, spirit and energy bodies.

Flower essences are a kind of vibrational medicine that its essences treats more specifically at an emotional and spiritual level, which effects the physical level. they are natural, safe and side-effect free.
The key to taking flower essences is frequency and awareness. Each time the patient takes the flower essences, they not only are adding a vibrational medicinal to their physical body; they are also shifting their consciousness back to the changes they are making and to their own forward movement.

Flower Essence Therapy is a plant based system that holds at its foundation the premise that humans are deeply connected to Nature, and that our emotions and behaviors can be positively influenced by contact with the energies of specific flowers. Just as a single rose can enhance feelings of love and the state of being that goes with feeling love, and just as a daisy may spark happiness or a lily serenity, so can the energetic essences of many plants affect us for wellbeing.

A flower essence is a bioenergetic imprint of a flower that has been transferred and stabilized in water. It is the Qi or life force of the flower that has been captured by water. They work directly on our energetic system such as the acupuncture meridians and are used primarily to address issues involving our emotions, mind and soul and to support the healing of physical ailments. Flower essences are a primary treatment for Shen in TCM.


The practitioner using Flower Essences creates an individualized prescription for each patient that facilitates a transformation from the unnatural, discordant state causing illness, back to the inherent, natural state of physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual harmony and health. Flower Essences are used world-wide, and can safely be combined with any other form of medical care. As with Homeopathy, Flower Essence Therapy uses the energetic “signature” of the flower to affect change, and so differs from Herbal Medicine which uses plant chemical extracts to balance the body. lower Essences are compatible with any other treatment schedule and have no contraindications, making them a wonderful “cause no harm” complementary or alternative medicine.

“Both psychology and Chinese Medicine [and Bach Flower Therapy] regard a symptom as a signal of unattended, underlying issues […]. Symptoms are opportunities to examine one’s life, to reconsider one’s values and habits, to re-evaluate one’s personality and relationships, to expand awareness, and to change.” —
“Chi Po, minister to Huang Di, the Yellow Emperor, states that “in order to make all acupuncture thorough, one must first cure the spirit.” — Leon Hammer, Dragon Rises, Red Bird Flies: Psychology and Chinese Medicine.

Gua Sha

Link

Other Therapies - Moore Acupuncture Center   神 in Chelmsford, MA

Gua sha is a healing technique of traditional East Asian medicine. Sometimes called ‘coining, spooning or scraping’, Gua sha is defined as instrument-assisted unidirectional press-stroking of a lubricated area of the body surface to intentionally create transitory therapeutic petechiae called ‘sha’ representing extravasation of blood in the subcutis. Guasha is a gentle scraping of the skin (without breaking the skin) to get to the muscle tissue where the flow of oxygen and nutrients has been impeded by tension and blockage. It is a therapeutic technique that feels similar to a deep massage.
Modern research shows Gua sha produces an anti-inflammatory and immune protective effect that persists for days following a single Gua sha treatment. This accounts for its effect on pain and stiffness. Gua sha is great for back, neck and should pain. Link

Moxibustion

Kimberlee Moore offers Acupuncture in Chelmsford, MA

Moxibustion involves the heating of acupuncture points with smoldering mugwort herb (known as moxa). Moxibustion stimulates circulation, counteracts cold and dampness in the body, and promotes the smooth flow of blood and qi. This safe, non-invasive technique may be used alone, but it is generally used in conjunction with acupuncture treatment.
