Acupuncture is a component of the health care system of China that can be traced back at least 2,500 years. The general theory of acupuncture is based on the premise that there are patterns of energy flow (Qi) through the body that are essential for health. Disruptions of this flow are believed to be responsible for disease. Acupuncture may correct imbalances of energy flow at identifiable points close to the skin. Many Western practitioners view the acupuncture points as places to stimulate nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Some believe that this stimulation boosts your body’s natural painkillers and increases blood flow.

HERBAL MEDICINE

The Chinese Materia Medica (a pharmacological reference book used by practitioners) describes hundreds of medicinal substances—primarily plants, which are prescribed in various combinations to treat internal and external disharmonies. Different parts of the plants, such as the leaves, roots, stems, flowers, and seeds, are used in formulas as medicine. Greg prescribes from a line of formulas called “Health Concerns”. Your prescriptions may be filled most easily by working with the Integrative Village Pharmacy in Lenox.

ACUTONICS AND MAGNETS

This is a “no needle” treatment. Feel the vibrations from specially constructed tuning forks. These vibrations pass through your muscles, energy points, and tissues to achieve a relaxing and profound effect. At some point in the session, there is simply stillness and silence, as you receive healing energy and gentle therapeutic touch. Magnets are placed on specific points on your body to continue the healing effect of the session at home.

THERAPEUTIC QIGONG

A “no needle” treatment. Therapeutic qigong refers to the process by which a qigong practitioner directs or emits his Qi to a patient to move and balance energy from within the body’s tissues, eliminate energetic stagnations, as well as tone and regulate the internal organs, immune system, and energetic fields. The practitioner lightly touches areas on the person’s body and often a peaceful sense of spaciousness and quiet presence occurs like no other therapy. When patients are ill and their own level of Qi is very low or stagnant, receiving Qi from a qigong practitioner can prove to be a powerful stimulant toward recovery. Generally, however, people who receive external qigong from a qigong practitioner, simultaneously do their own internal practice. Therefore this therapy works best for people who are also receiving private qigong instruction.
