Heavenly Star Acupuncture takes its name from a poem from the Yuan Dynasty where eleven “miraculous” acupuncture points are identified which when used with the right heart and the right hands have the clinical effect of making health complaints disappear as quickly as splashing hot water upon snow.
Heavenly Star Acupuncture works with Chinese and Japanese styles of acupuncture.
We supplement treatment when necessary with acupressure, moxibustion, massage, movement and diet-related therapy. While we cannot promise instant cures, we do believe that the right points, the right diagnosis and an open relationship between client and practitioner allows the balance of a body to be restored. And when harmony in the body is restored, so, too, is health.
Acupuncture is a holistic treatment that adjusts and balances the body to improve circulation, organ function and general health.
It is used to treat a wide variety of conditions from stress, headaches and fatigue to digestive issues, stiff shoulders and torn muscles. To do this, tiny needles are inserted at specific points on the body. These acupuncture points lie on channels that were first mapped out in China over 2,000 years ago and whose relevance is being confirmed today through electromagnetic imaging.
Acupuncture can be used to treat specific complaints, to boost energy and well-being, and to encourage relaxation and sleep.
It can also improve energy levels and immune function before and during challenging periods and help with recovery from illness, accidents and surgery. The number of treatments required depends on the seriousness of a condition, how long you have had it and on your lifestyle and general health. Acupuncture treatments are covered by most health insurance policies with an alternative health package option. No referral from a doctor is needed.
