Welcome to Mari Ane Anderson
Acupuncture is one aspect of treatment used by a practitioner of Chinese Medicine. Acupuncture involves the observation of Life Force Energy throughout the physical body, and subsequent treatment, utilizing the insertion of tiny needles into points along the body, to affect change in the patterns of Injury or disease.
Needles are small and relatively low in sensation. Occasionally you will feel a slight pinch, or a sensation of energetic flow, but for the most part acupuncture is safe, easy and very relaxing.
Moxibustion, or MOXA as it is more commonly referred to, is a therapy used in traditional Chinese Medicine that utilizes the burning of dried mugwort, (an herb)
on the acupuncture points of the body. It is used to warm the points of acupuncture and stimulate the circulation of blood, lymph and interstitial fluids. The increase in circulation assists in deep healing of tissue by way of increased distribution of the nutrients carried in these fluids, to the areas of the body that are in need.
The application of Moxa is warm and soothing and is a very comfortable treatment.
The infrared body wrap is used in this practice for the relief of pain, and for reducing the build-up of toxins in the body. Often the build-up of toxins is the cause of pain, so sweating out the toxins has the side benefit of reducing pain.
In the session, you will be wrapped in the infrared blanket for a period of time, usually between 30-50 minutes, at a level of light that is determined to fit your needs. Lower and Slower is the way we start.
You will be warm at first, for a number of minutes, then as your core temp rises you will feel hot, after the body has reached the elevation of temperature that will create a sweating effect, you will remain in the wrap for a number of minutes in this state to relieve the toxins through the skin.
The blanket is comfortable and you will be laying down and given water throughout your treatment. The time that you spent sweating can be a little uncomfortable, but the results are remarkable.
Cupping is a tool used by the practitioner of Chinese Medicine, that targets the relief of pain and deep aching in the muscle system and around layers of built-up connective tissue. Pain and aching in these systems are often a result of stagnation in the flow of blood and lymph, and can also be attributed to scaring from build up of connective tissue.
Cupping, by way of suction, brings the stagnation to the surface where it can be released, and the gentle action of moving the cups over the site of pain or injury, can break up scar tissue which enables a re-establishment of circulation to the areas treated.
Cupping is generally soothing and feels like a deep massage, but in areas of deep injury Cupping can be uncomfortable during the treatment process. There is always a payoff in the relief that it brings from age old chronic pain.
