Acupuncture

One of the recip­i­ents of com­mu­ni­ty style auric­u­lar acupunc­ture in Oax­a­ca Mex­i­co. After receiv­ing treat­ments this girl improved in school, could do her work and was much hap­pi­er.

Acupunc­ture and treat­ing the merid­i­ans of Chi­nese Med­i­cine is the core of all of the work that Dr. Jeya prac­tices with her clients. With 24 years of expe­ri­ence, she has suc­cess­ful­ly treat­ed a large vari­ety of phys­i­cal and emo­tion­al issues, includ­ing many peo­ple who have come to her “as a last resort”.

 

Tra­di­tion­al acupunc­ture is based on ancient Chi­nese the­o­ries of the flow of Qi (Ener­gy) through dis­tinct path­ways through­out the body. These path­ways are con­nect­ed to the body’s organs. Ide­al­ly the path­ways are open and the Qi flows smooth­ly and even­ly through­out, like a riv­er. When there is a block­age in the path­way which can occur due to a trau­ma (injury), emo­tion­al rea­sons, poor diet or lifestyle imbal­ances, it is like the riv­er has been dammed. On one side of the dam there is the lake, an excess con­di­tion of stag­na­tion (such as pain), and the water (or Qi) is not able to move. On the oth­er side of the dam the water is reduced to a trick­le or a deficiency/weakness in the body. Through acupunc­ture, points are gen­tly stim­u­lat­ed, open­ing the dam to allow the riv­er, or Qi, to flow smooth­ly and be bal­anced on both sides restor­ing the har­mo­nious ener­getic bal­ance of the body.
