Wendy uses a combination of energy medicine techniques that she has trained in either within her acupuncture training at school or from certification classes held outside of acupuncture school. Wendy’s intuition and experience guide her to use the proper energy technique as an adjunct with the acupuncture treatments.
Reiki: Certified 3rd Degree Usui Reiki Practitioner including Master Symbol Training
Reiki is a form of treatment that uses the energy within the universe to make changes within the body to improve health. Like acupuncture, there are many theories as to how it works with no concrete evidence but it does seem to work well. It is accepted in Western medicine hospitals, as the patients request it due to its beneficial results.
During a treatment, the practitioner’s hands are placed in certain positions on the clothed patient and held there for a non-specific amount of time before moving on to the next position. There is usually a pattern that the practitioner follows as far as locations treated on the body, but if the practitioner feels a different spot needs more work, they will break the pattern. Treatments are individualized to what the patient needs at the time. The patient will feel warmth coming from the hands of the practitioner and feel energy moving during the treatment. It is a genuinely relaxing treatment and is used as an adjunt to the acupuncture treatment.
Cranio-Sacral Therapy: 3rd Level Practitioner
Craniosacral therapy works with another facet of the body called the Cranial Rhythmic Impulse. There is a “normal” rhythm that functions in the whole body consistently. This rhythm can be altered because of illness, physical and emotional trauma, nutritional deficiencies and more. Practitioners can feel this impulse anywhere in a patient’s body. Through palpation and gentle movement, most of the time the movements are minute, the outcome of a session is a basic re-boot of the body’s rhythmic system to work properly.
Wendy may use Craniosacral Therapy to loosen tight or inflexible joints, relieve headaches, open the sinus cavities within the head for better flow as well as other conditions. The patient is fully clothed during this procedure and is used as an adjunct to the acupuncture treatment.
