Hi! I’m MaryAnne Bachia!
There are many aspects of Chinese Medicine. You may know, acupuncture is useful for pain relief. What you may not know is that, in Chinese Medicine, stress and anxiety are considered painful conditions!
Nothing is more constant to the world than change. Lately, we have all been experiencing this on many levels. We are all going through changes, whether they are great or small, flexibility is a key to moving through these changes with grace, health and a positive attitude.
This is where Chinese Medicine comes in.
Acupuncture is the most recognized part of Chinese Medicine.
Chinese herbs are becoming more popular. Chinese Herbs have deep healing qualities, deeper than Western herbs. Many Chinese herbs are roots, like Ginseng. The root of the plant reaches the root of the healing.
Chinese Medicine addresses tension, from internal, physical conditions and external responses to everyday life. Stress effects your physical and emotional, body. Your immunity, your hormones, your metabolism, your digestion, are all effected. Your endorphins contribute to your happiness and sense of well being. Stress triggers cortisol. It also, plays an important part in weight loss. Chinese medicine addresses these imbalances. Your body relaxes. Your health expands.
Relaxation from acupuncture builds with weekly treatments. Your body builds strength, balance and flexibility. These qualities help you maintain comfort and peace of mind though stressful times. When you relax, you open creatively, with insight and imagination unfolding, adding perspective and wisdom to everyday stress. As your mind relaxes, your ideas unfold, your thoughts change, you are in touch with a deeper truth within yourself. This helps you change your mind, which is the first step to changing your life.
