Acupuncture is originally from China and has been used for thousands of years. Acupuncture works to restore health to the body naturally by increasing the flow of blood, relaxing muscles, and increasing white blood cell production. Immunity is increased, relaxation is encouraged and pain reduced with acupuncture. Acupuncture Day is a great time to try acupuncture, for free, and see if it’s for you. Trust the providers at Integrative Acupuncture, with decades of experience using acupuncture for many different conditions.

Tai Chi

 

Tai Chi is a slow moving exercise practiced by all ages of people. It works with the small muscles in the body and helps to restore tone and strength. Partners from Montpelier and Williston with Sarah Norton, will be on site at Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day to demonstrate and provide information about this ancient exercise.

Tongue And Pulse

Chinese medical providers use the ancient diagnostic tools of looking at the tongues and feeling pulses to make a diagnosis. By looking at the shape, color, coating and size of the tongue, the acupuncturist can make an accurate evaluation of the health. The pulse is more then the rate of the pulse, but the quality of 18 different pulses felt at the radial artery. Using this ancient diagnostic skills, acupuncturists can evaluate all sorts of health conditions. Have your tongue and pulse evaluated at our Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine Day.

Medicinal Herbs thumbnail-23

Herba medicine has been a part of medicine for thousands of years. Many well known and effective medicines derive from plants, roots and barks originally. Herbs are safe when recommended by trained and licensed professionals, like the providers at Integrative Acupuncture. We work with your physicians and assure no contraindications with medications.

Integrative Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine has been providing acupuncture to the central Vermont community for the past six years. They work in collaboration with physicians of University of Vermont Health Network, Central Vermont Medical Center to provide complementary medical care for pain, stress, headaches, allergies and much more.
