Acupuncture Benefits

Acupuncture benefits include reducing emotional and physical pain by increasing the body’s own natural healing energy flow. Some of the most common acupuncture benefits include successfully increasing energy and improving well being, as well as boosting the immune system. Acupuncture lifts your mood, clears your mind, and opens your heart. The effectiveness of acupuncture is well documented and has been used successfully in Asia for thousands of years.

Treatments may include a variety of modalities. In addition to acupuncture needles, non-needle techniques include:

Heat treatments called Moxibustion or Moxa where a herbal remedy is heated and applied to either acupuncture needles or directly to the skin. This is used to treat nausea, pain and for late stages of pregnancy to stimulate labor.

Stimulation to blood circulation and detoxification with Cupping is another technique where cups are used to create a vacuum on the body. This treats respiratory conditions, arthritis, gastrointestinal disorders and pain.

Electrical stimulation, known as E-stem units, are also available to block pain receptors and stimulate the release of the body’s natural pain relievers, endorphins. Small clips are placed on the end of the acupuncture needles to help alleviate pain.

How Acupuncture Works

Acupuncture originated in China more than 5,000 years ago, and due to its proven effectiveness has been embraced throughout the world.

Acupuncture is a Chinese healing art that involves the gentle insertion of very thin, fine pre-sterilized disposable needles into specific parts of the body, which stimulate and activate the body’s own self-healing. The purpose of acupuncture is to activate the smooth flow of Qi (energy) in the body. It is believed that disruption in the flow of Qi causes imbalances, which may cause disease. Acupuncture releases endorphins to create a deep state of relaxation, reduce inflammation and pain, and boost the immune system.

Acupuncture is an organic healing process and the number of treatments depends on if your condition is chronic or acute.

Acupuncture Appointments

Receiving acupuncture on a regular basis is highly recommended as preventative medicine to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Acupuncture is an organic healing process which treats both chronic and acute conditions. Acupuncture benefits include increased energy and well-being, decreased physical and emotional stress and pain.

Best facial spot in San Diego! Jamie is incredibly skilled, and a generous and warm spirit. I have come back here repeatedly even after moving to the east coast. Her products are organic, smell amazing, she takes the time to explain the state of my skin and customize the facial according to my health and skin state. Normally I dread extraction but Jamie made it practically pain free. She also offers a great massage as part of the facial and was so generous giving me a home made lip balm she made at the end of the service. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a facial here!!!

A girlfriend surprised me with a massage by Jamie for my birthday and it was divine! She puts so much love and attention into your session. She preps the room, heats the table, and discusses the areas of your body that need attention. She cares about her clients!!

I had the absolute BEST facial here. Jamie seriously worked magic on my skin, and she’s truly one of the most knowledgeable, kind, and caring people I’ve met. I can’t wait to come back for more facials and massages!

I got a massage here this week and it was amazing. I told her my neck and shoulders were causing me pain and she was able to stretch my neck out and work out the knots, which felt amazing. I got the hot rock therapy which felt soothing and relaxing. I also got the aromatherapy add-on, which was wonderful and calming. I love this place.

If I could give 100 stars, I would! Jamie and her massage suite is my sanctuary! I can come here completely out of power and leave refreshed, happily tired and with the knowledge that I’ve done (or rather Jamie did to my body through her massage) something that my body will thank me for. It’s also not only the massage or facial but also Jamie herself! I am coming to Jamie now since about 5 years and are not planning to change massage places ever! Highly recommend you try it yourself!
