Most people's overly-busy minds—chronically burdened with worry, stress and countless "to do" lists—need a compelling way to let go into active relaxation—allowing the whole person to return to optimum balance and well-being.
AcuShén℠ is a powerful and effective way to transform your stress-habits into health habits and achieve your wellness goals easily and gracefully.
Whether your health motivator is to improve sleep quality, reduce chronic pain, feel more balanced and energetic, quit smoking, eat healthier or simply alleviate anxiety and end insidious "hamster mill" thinking—AcuShén can help.
AcuShén is a community-based therapy with up to twelve participants forming each AcuShén group. Together each group shares a renewing and restorative wellness treatment in a supportive and welcoming environment.
The AcuShén treatment experience is holistic, and integrates two powerful healing modalities:
Relaxing Guided Imagery and Gentle Acupuncture together.
What is AcuShén Guided Imagery and how can it help my toxic stress symptoms?
Guided imagery is a program of specifically directed thoughts and suggestions by an AcuShén therapist, who gently guides your imagination toward a calm and relaxed, yet aware and focused state. It is similar to hypnosis, but potentially more effective due to your own conscious and controlled participation.
Guided imagery is rooted in the inherent connection between the body and the mind. By actively engaging all of your senses through the guided imagination—your body is easily and naturally facilitated in entering Parasympathetic Mode as regulated by the Central Nervous System (CNS). The Parasympathetic Mode is also more commonly known as the "Rest and Restore" function of the body, wherein the endocrine, nervous, and immune systems work together to flush wastes and toxins, while rebuilding new cells, tissues, and overall health and balance.
Scientifically, it has been proven that our bodies don't know the difference between harmful or healing scenarios that are either vividly imagined or have actually occurred.
The body experiences according to the messages the mind sends. And it simply responds accordingly.
The body responds as though a vividly imagined scenario is truly happening—and can provide destructive or restorative functioning to match. That is why our bodies and our health can be so negatively impacted by toxic stress.
The good news is that this is also how AcuShén Therapy works to powerfully and effectively alleviate the symptoms of accumulated toxic stress and provide deep healing relaxation and rejuvenation.
How can Gentle Acupuncture affect my mind to reduce negative stress?
Group Acupuncture easily roots the energetically restorative effects of Guided Imagery within each participant's physical body.
Stimulation of specific acupuncture points during a guided imagery session assists each person to access subtle, yet profound, mental-emotional centers within the brain. This allows each individual to receive the healing benefits of his/her own natural biochemical reserves: powerfully relaxing endorphins and balancing neurotransmitters.
Scientific imaging technologies such as PET scan (positron emission tomography), functional MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and SPECT (single-proton emission computer tomography have recently allowed non-invasive visualization of anatomical and functional effects of acupuncture stimulation in the human brain.
Based on current central nervous system (CNS) imaging studies, the following conclusions were made by investigators:
- The hypothalamus and the limbic system play a central role in acupuncture analgesia (pain relief).
- The significant overlap between acupuncture and CNS pain pathways suggests that acupuncture stimulation may affect pain signals processed in the CNS.
- Traditional needling and superficial needling activate two different central pathways and yet both provide clinical analgesia.
AcuShén combines the best of holistic Guided Imagery and Gentle Acupuncture to create an effective integrative therapy that can powerfully alleviate toxic stress, and change your mind to heal your body—resulting in rapid health and wellness transformation.
