Acupuncture works with the channels of energy that run through the entire body called, meridians. Meridians are like rivers leading to the ocean located in the center of the abdomen. Hair fine needles are inserted at specific points along the meridians to unblock stagnant qi (energy). These acu-points correspond to different organ systems and are formulated in the treatment to bring your particular deficiencies or excesses back into balance. Acupuncture is actually quite relaxing and can relax a stressed out person within just a half an hour.
Dr. Judith was trained in Traditional Chinese Medical theory including, pulse taking and examination of the face and tongue as well as, thorough questioning to gather a comprehensive picture of the patient. She combines this information and her years of experience to determine the best treatment plan for each person seeking help.
By placing a combination of acupuncture needles in key points, the Qi and blood are stimulated, optimizing the bodies communication system and creating a more balanced and peaceful mind and body. The entire person is looked at as a dynamic being in nature constantly moving in and out of the five elements as such, wind, fire, earth, metal and water. This approach respects the complexity of an individual and what they are experiencing. Dr. Judith understands that there are many factors not only influencing the individuals’ health and well being, but many tools to use to bring them back to a healthy peaceful place.

Cupping is a therapy where plastic or glass cups are attached to the skins’ surface to relieve local blood and qi stagnation. This occurs through negative pressure created by a flame in the cup or from a suction pump.
Dr. Judith primarily uses heated glass cups first applying oil and then moving the cups on either side of the spine and up around the shoulders.
Cupping promotes the free flow of Qi and blood in the meridians, dispelling cold dampness, diminishing swellings and pain.
Bi-syndrome is trapped wind-damp and is common in the northern climates, such as pain of the low back, neck, shoulders, and legs. It is also used for gastrointestinal disorders and lung problems like bronchitis and asthma.
Slight to moderate bruising may result and the doctor will check in with you about this before she begins. The bruising disappears within a couple of days as the body cleanses and the blood toxins are released leaving you feeling more free and relaxed.
This technique, which incorporates the burning of a Chinese herb called Mugwort or Artemesia Vulgaris over acupuncture points in the body, opens up channels and promotes energy flow in the body that is due to stagnation, cold, or deficiency. The warming of specific acu-points on the body is a welcome comfort to individuals with these conditions.
