Acudetox | Cherokee Bodywork | Reiki
Many people interested in therapy for mental health support also seek a spiritual connection or alternative modalities that can be used as an adjunct to traditional therapeutic services. Nspire Today is happy to offer the following optional modalities for clients who seek this additional level of support:
Acudetox is another word for auricular (pertaining to the ear) acupuncture. It is one of the world's oldest medical practices, having been around for over three thousand years. It has no side effects and works as an adjunct to existing treatments or therapies.
Chinese medical science holds that there is an extensive and complex energy system that flows throughout the human body. When this stream flows freely, the body is in balance and healthy. Interruptions and blockages in this normally free-flowing energy stream cause stagnation, illness, dis-ease, and discomfort. Simply stated, acupuncture is a technique that helps get the energy flowing freely and restores balance to the body, including emotional and psychological conditions.
Auricular acupuncture has many benefits and can be beneficial in assisting in the treatment of:
Stress and tension
Sleep disturbances and insomnia
Attention deficit disorder (ADD & ADHD)
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
The Cherokee people of North America have a long history of being well versed in body therapies and energy healing, having developed a comprehensive, sophisticated bodywork system that encompasses a form of osteopathic massage and manipulation, breath, and energy work.
Central to this hands-on bodywork technique is the alternation of deep pressure and gentle rocking release of the body. The breath is also used to reanimate the body and “draw spirit” into affected areas to support healing and overall wellbeing.
Reiki (Master Level/Trainer)
Reiki is an ancient energy healing modality, often beneficial in support of one’s spiritual evolution or healing journey. This technique is based on the principle that the therapist can channel energy into the client by means of gentle touch, and often no touch at all, to activate the natural healing processes of the patient and restore physical and emotional well-being.
Reiki treats the whole person including body, emotions, mind, and spirit creating many beneficial effects that include relaxation and feelings of peace, security, and wellbeing.
While Reiki is spiritual in nature, it is not a religion. There is nothing you must believe in order to experience the benefits of Reiki. In fact, Reiki is not dependent on belief at all and has been shown to work whether clients believe in its spiritual connection or not.
