Acupuncture

Acupuncture points are specific areas on the body just beyond the surface of the skin. They have high concentrations of nerve endings, mast cells, lymphatic vessels, and capillaries. When a single-use medical grade steel acupuncture needle is inserted into an acupuncture point, it stimulates the sensory receptor, which in turn stimulates the nerve, which then transmits impulses to the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal system.

 

This complex system of interactions (often called a “feedback loop”) between the brain, hormones, and glands is responsible for regulating a number of bodily processes. Because acupuncture helps to regulate the various feedback loops in your body, it actually allows your body to heal itself of whatever is wrong. This amazing trait is unique to nearly every other medical system, and has sustained acupuncture as a complete system of medicine for over 5,000 years.

Chinese Medical Herbs

Herbalism is at the heart of traditional Chinese medicine(TCM.) There are 5,767 medicinal substances currently in use, including plant, animal, and mineral substances. Anywhere from 4 to 20 of these herbs are combined to form various formulas for patients . At Soul Peaceful Acupuncture we do no use any animal products in our formulas and are aware of any cautions and contraindication of herbal usage with western pharmaceuticals. 

Traditional Chinese medicine uses thousands of years of observation and case studies to evaluate these herbs on how they affect vital fluids such as: blood, cerebral spinal fluid, ext; create changes in our organs; and fight pathogens.  The herbs used here at Soul Peaceful Acupuncture are considered top of the line and prepared in granule form so that they dissolve in water much like instant coffee.  Our herbs are fully compliant with the FDA, farmed using eco-sensitive farming principals, contain biodiverse and sustainable products without using endangered species, verified for authenticity using advanced laboratory equipment, and have over 20 laboratory tests performed on them to ensure their safety fom heavy metals, e coli, mold, and much more.

Testimonials

 

After working long hours on my feet as a hair stylist, i developed a horrible pain on the sole of my foot. I ended up seeing Damian Z. for treatment. He was very professional, brought over some diagrams and explained to me my condition after diagnosing me with plantar fasciitis.  Before treating me with acupuncture, he demonstrated some daily stretches that would improve my pain. Once the treatment was completed he applied an herbal plaster which he instructed to leave on overnight.

Thanks to Damian Z. I can walk again without excruciating pain.

I had pain in my knee and elbow for quite some time which prevented me from doing many things. After trying pain relieving ointments and pain killing medications, I decided to try acupuncture. After just one session with Damian, I knew I was in the right hands. Damian was very kind and professional, before each session he would ask me many questions about my health which allowed him too maximize the benefits of the treatments. During my second session, Damian used heat to warm up the needles which I feel like helped me even more. In addition to the effectiveness of his treatments, I appreciate his caring touch, holistic knowledge, and his ability to listen. Damian also recommended herbal supplements for me. His treatments helped me relieve the pain I had been feeling in my knee and elbow as well as made acupuncture a wonderful experience for me. I would recommend Damian to everyone.
