Neuro-Linguistic Programming And Acupuncture

Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), created by Richard Bandler, is a behavioral method which can empower you with a set of guiding attitudes and principles about behavior. NLP can be combined with acupuncture to create an effective approach to mind and body. NLP places an emphasis on the relation between thoughts, language and behavior. Techniques used in NLP teach people to modify beliefs, reach personal goals, eliminate addictions, and improve communication with others. By adopting more successful ways of using the mind, negatives can be changed into positives. “Often, I only need to see people a couple of times to reprogram their thinking and give them a whole new outlook on life, success and happiness,” says Bandler. “I don’t look at where people went astray, what they did or why. I teach them to get back on the rails and not to look back.” Once people realize that they create their own internal beliefs, memories and experiences, they become aware that they have the power to change their behavior and health. There are now more than 3,000 NLP institutes in 70 different countries, using Bandler’s techniques to cure everything from phobias and lack of confidence to traumatic association from past events. NLP benefits: • Allows you to shape your future. • Provides optimism about the present. • Teaches how to use determination and calm in adverse situations. • Improves personal and professional decision making. NLP and acupuncture treatment combine the powerful mind techniques of NLP with the body and meridian work of acupuncture to promote mental and physical health. Many health conditions have mental and physical components that can be effectively treated by integrating NLP with acupuncture therapy. … Read More

Acupuncture For Unexplained Symptoms

Attending frequently with medically unexplained symptoms is distressing for both patient and health care practitioner and effective treatment options are limited: One in five patients have symptoms that remain unexplained by conventional medicine. A new study examines traditional acupuncture as a treatment for people with unexplained symptoms. The study from the Institute of Health Services Research, University of Exeter, assessed 80 such patients to investigate their experiences of having five-element acupuncture added to their usual care. Findings indicate that acupuncture has a significant and sustained benefit for these patients and can be added safely to conventional therapies used by practitioners to treat patients with unexplained symptoms. Patients were divided into a group receiving 12 acupuncture treatments over 26 weeks or a group which received the same number of treatments beginning 26 weeks later. The acupuncture group reported a significantly improved health survey score compared to those not receiving acupuncture immediately. The acupuncture group maintained their improvement up to 52 weeks, and the second group, now receiving acupuncture, showed a ‘catch-up’ improvement. Participating patients had a variety of longstanding symptoms including chronic pain and fatigue. Patients reported that their acupuncture consultations became increasingly valuable, and that they appreciated the holistic nature of the sessions. As a result many patients were encouraged to take an active role in their treatment, resulting in cognitive and behavioral lifestyle changes, such as a new self-awareness about what caused stress and how to manage it, and taking their own initiatives based on advice from their acupuncturists about diet, exercise and relaxation. Benefits of acupuncture: • Reduced dependency on medication. • Increased energy. • Balanced mental-emotional states. • Reduced fatigue.

Acupuncture For Fibromyalgia

Music therapy combined with other relaxation techniques based on guided imagery significantly reduces pain, depression and anxiety, and improves sleep among patients suffering from fibromyalgia, according to University of Granada researchers. Acupuncture can be an effective therapy for symptom management of fibromyalgia. The researchers applied a relaxation technique based on music therapy and guided imagery to patients in a series of sessions. Patients were given a CD to listen to at home. Then, a number of variables associated with the main symptoms of fibromyalgia were measured—pain intensity, quality of life, impact of the condition on daily life, sleep disorders, anxiety, depression, self-efficacy, and well-being. Afterwards, patients were allowed to participate in their treatment. Findings indicate that music therapy and guided imagery are significant in the symptomatic treatment of this condition. The low cost, easy implementation and the fact that patients can get involved in their treatment at home are some of the many advantages. These two techniques also enhance the well-being and personal power of patients with fibromyalgia. In addition to music therapy and guided imagery, acupuncture can aid in the treatment of fibromyalgia. The National Institutes of Health has issued a statement concluding that acupuncture may be helpful as an adjunctive therapy for fibromyalgia. Benefits of acupuncture: • Treats muscle pain. • Regulates sleep disorders. • Reduces stress. • Minimizes fatigue. Traditional Chinese medicine views fibromyalgia as a condition caused by body imbalances, poor nutrition, sleep disorders, excess strain, and mental and emotional stress. Your acupuncture physician will complete a full assessment to determine which imbalances are at the root cause of your fibromyalgia. … Read More

Acupuncture For The Knees

For years, studies have offered conflicting opinions on whether exercise is good for knees. A new report from the American College of Sports Medicine provides evidence that exercise is, in fact, good for the knees. Acupuncture can also improve knee health by relieving pain and strengthening joint function. “Several studies have already examined the impact of physical activity on the knee as a whole, but none have looked at the effect of physical activity on individual parts of the knee,” says Flavia Cicuttini, M.D., of the Monash University in Australia. “As it turns out, exercise affects each part of the knee differently, which helps explain why there have been conflicting reports for so long.” While exercise is linked to osteophytes, or bony spurs, there are no detrimental changes to joint space, the place where cartilage is housed. Exercise has beneficial effects on cartilage integrity, with evidence of greater volumes and fewer defects. Acupuncture can be beneficial for individuals with knee osteoarthritis. Acupuncture can decrease symptoms and improve quality of life when integrated into routine care. Acupuncture is most effective for individuals with symptomatic knee osteoarthritis who have moderate pain despite conventional medical therapy. Acupuncture for knee osteoarthritis: • Decreases swelling. • Reduces stiffness and pain. • Improves functional ability. • Reduces dependence on medication. Acupuncture & Massage College’s Community Clinic offers acupuncture, herbal medicine and massage for the treatment of knee osteoarthritis as well as a wide range of other health conditions. To schedule an appointment call (305) 595-9500. For information about AMC’s Oriental Medicine and Massage Therapy programs ask for Joe Calareso, Admissions Director. … Read More
