What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a meridian based healing method that relies on understanding the flow of healing energy in each person and how that energy gets stuck and where blockages to healing exist. Like nerve energy flow along nerves and blood flow in arteries and veins, qi energy flows in channels or meridians. Blocked energy flow manifests as mental confusion, organic disease, muscle trigger points, pain, or numbness. Acupuncturists like Dr. Oskardmay utilize small needles inserted along meridian acupoints to restore qi flow. The result is relaxed healing and reduced anxiety.

Anxiety afflicts many people in times of stress and can impair sleep, digestion, and mental clarity. Dr. Oskardmay begins each healing session with an examination to determine where energy stagnation and channel disruption exists to cause anxiety or other disorders. Acupuncture examination includes history taking, palpation of specific areas of pain or discomfort, pulse taking, and other aspects. Dr. Oskardmay creates a healing program unique to each patient with acupuncture point stimulation as the central component to balance qi flow along meridians and reduce stress and anxiety. She will incorporate massage techniques such as cupping, transverse friction massage, and percussive massage to reduce stagnation in irritated tissues and enhance healing blood flow to deprived areas.

As part of each treatment, Dr. Oskardmay educates each person regarding exercises and other ADL they can do on their own at home to improve their health naturally. The patient can review many of these activities on the office you-tube channel. Additionally, she will help patients understand the role of nutrition-related to body-mind health and make suggestions regarding local foods to incorporate to enhance well being and reduce anxiety.
