Minimally Invasive Oriental Medicine Alternatives

When prescription medications fail, or if medications are not a viable option for you, try ancient Oriental medicine that has been successful for several centuries. This is not an approach based on one technique, but a concept that combines acupuncture, herbs, nutrition, exercise, and ways to balance the energy and harmony within the body to heal. There are many conditions and ailments that are treated in this manner.

How Acupuncture Works

This healing technique utilizes very fine needles to access and unblock energy channels within the body. The focus on the surface of the body, which is referred to as “yang”, has several benefits. Obstructions in muscles and nerves are removed, the nervous system relaxes, the release of hormones are regulated, and the flow of oxygen-rich blood and lymph fluid is controlled.

The placement of the needles are based on the diagnosis or area of pain. Most people achieve a calming dream-like state during sessions. This is due to the release of endorphin by the body and the alpha waves transmitted through the brain as a result of internal energy sources being tapped. The practice can be completed alone, but is more effective when combined with other healing methods.

Holistic Approach

Needles treat the surface, while herbs and other techniques focus on the “yin” or disharmony deep within the body. Reiki, for example, is a Japanese technique that uses the universal force of life to align the energy centers of the body. These centers are called chakrus. Shamanic healing is a technique that is believed to eliminate core issues that keep the soul trapped in the past. Both of these techniques, along with others, are non-invasive.

The experience of a holistic approach is used to treat a wide variety of conditions, from the common cold to pain management to infertility. Stress and depression, gastrointestinal issues, obesity, and fatigue are also treated. Full descriptions of each technique, along with a complete list of conditions treated can be found at People can also set up an appointment at Satori Holistic, view pricing information, and shop the store online.

A Comparison

Techniques in combination operate much like phrase match anchor techniques do in online content. One component, the keyword or phrase, provides a link to a website which is the secondary component. Both have a specific target area, but become so much more when used in combination. A more concrete comparison is the combination of a warranty and preventative maintenance to keep a vehicle well protected and running smoothly.
