Awakening the Body’s Intelligence
Acupuncture is a complete Medical system used to improve well-being, prevent disease, and diagnose and treat illness. It is beneficial for Physical, Psychological and Emotional problems. Originating in China more than 3,000 years ago, its proven effectiveness has been embraced throughout the world.
Dr. Mindy Boxer utilizes Japanese-style Acupuncture based on the work of Kiiko Matsumoto and Kyoshi Nagano. They believe that like the pulse, the abdomen (and other parts of the body) are a template upon which life experiences are registered.
A new-born, or a totally healthy person, has a Buddha belly with no pressure pain anywhere. As we go through life, the various accumulations we carry are lodged in certain areas of our body, most prominently on the abdomen. All of these problems can be interfering with the healing process. This approach treats the earliest injury/trauma first, paving the way to addressing the patient’s current health concerns. Once the correct blockages have been cleared, the body will find its own way into health.
After Dr. Boxer palpates the body for imbalances, finding the areas of tension and tenderness, she then treats the appropriate points. Acupuncture needles, as fine as human hair, are left in place while the patient relaxes under a heat pack. Soft music is played and aromatherapy permeates the atmosphere.
