Chasity Brown, owner of Essence Acupuncture & Wellness, tells Fox 29 News, San Antonio, “We’ve definitely seen an increase in people that are looking for their immune system to be balanced.” Essence Acupuncture & Wellness provides essential services that are exceptionally safe, even in the face of COVID-19.
It would not be an exaggeration to say that many of the following services can be considered almost as important to health maintenance as staying home.
- Acupuncture – This ancient Chinese practice aims to assist people in achieving balance by providing relief for multiple ailments and maintaining optimal health. By stimulating the central nervous system acupuncture influences the activity of the immune system. An in depth biological study provides compelling evidence of “the impact of nervous system and immune system interaction on the fine balance between human health and disease.”
Albeit being only slightly invasive acupuncture is relatively painless, acupuncture triggers the release of immune mediators to the nervous system to amplify local immune responses. This facilitates pathogen clearance and relief for many ailments.
- Moxibustion – Moxa improves the overall blood and lymph circulations and the capacity to produce antibodies. Moxibustion is known to increase the production of white blood cells, which help the body fight disease and infection.
- Massage – Massage therapy is not just for relieving stress. It facilitates the release of physical tension and toxins while spurring blood circulation and expediting the body’s healing process. When used in conjunction with acupuncture lifestyle care, it can help you achieve optimum health.
- Infrared Sauna – Far from your average sauna, infrared saunas not only offer immune support. They are also seven times more effective at detoxifying the body than a traditional sauna.
- Chinese Herbal Medicine & Dietary Nutrition – Maintaining a diet tailored to your individual needs is a powerful preventative health tool. This ancient practice provides holistic, herbal solutions for most conditions. Treatment plans for this service are prescribed based on your individual diagnosis.
