BOOK with Elena
Acupuncture is part of the traditional practice of Chinese medicine, dating back thousands of years and practiced all over East Asia, including Japan and Korea. Practitioners of Traditional East Asian Medicine utilize dynamic points in the body located along myofascial tracts to affect the body’s ability to resolve stagnation. These pathways are called meridians or channels, and are responsible for overall health. Disruption of proper flow can cause disease, as we know from our modern understanding of circulation, and in Chinese Medicine Qi (pronounced “Chee”) is one of those vital substances that must be circulated appropriately in the body to maintain health. Applying techniques such as acupuncture, (along with acupressure, moxibustion, and cupping) reinvigorates proper movement in the body, improving the flow of Qi and body fluids, thereby improving health. Elena is also trained in orthopedic approaches including trigger point needling, sports medicine, and neuroanatomical acupuncture.
