Redmint Acupuncture Holistic Healing

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a core component of TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), a holistic system of health and wellness that has been around for thousands of years.

TCM theory suggests that health is influenced by the flow of vital energy (Qi) through meridians in your body. Disruptions in the Qi flow are believed to contribute to illness; while the balance of Qi can be used to treat a wide range of health conditions.

Acupuncturists insert sterile, hair-thin needles at specific points along these meridians. This stimulation triggers the body's natural healing mechanisms, restore the flow of qi and as a result promote health and wellbeing.

Science shows that everything in the body is made of constantly moving elements that radiate energy (Qi). Inside of you is an intelligent, powerful and vital energy network that maintains health and essential balance. Acupuncture works to activate this energy system as the natural self-healing ability of the body, which can strengthen and harmonize your internal system to address root causes of symptoms and achieve optimal health with lasting benefits.

HERBAL MEDICINE

Herbal medicine and acupuncture are the two most important therapeutic modalities of TCM. In fact, when both are employed holistically, the powerful combination is the best solution for enhancing wellness and maintaining overall health.

Over thousands of years, TCM herbology has evolved into an art form all its own.  Ancient herbal information has been gathered, compiled, formulated, tested, and handed down from generation to generation.  All TCM herbs are classified according to their energetic qualities and functions – as well as the various organs, meridians, and disharmonies they best address. Individual herbs are combined in order to enhance their actions and effects upon the body; when combined, a unique, synergistic formula is created. This combination increases the benefits of a particular herb – and minimizes any side effects. 

Herbal medicines are used to expedite the healing process and strengthen, support and tonify the body.  Herbs have the capacity to address the underlying root causes of many health concerns.  When applied topically, these herbs can facilitate the skin regeneration process, resulting in optimal skin health for a natural, healthy looking radiance. Herbal medicine is the ultimate, tried-and-true superfood for your body, soul and glow.
