THE POWER OF ACUPUNCTURE

ANCIENT MEDICINE MEETS MODERN SCIENCE

Bridging the gap between eastern and western medicine, Dr. Jennifer Myers, LAc, DOM, found a love for holistic medicine with an emphasis in functional medicine.

Using her experience and knowledge, she believes in whole body personalized care to help restore her patient’s health.

Dr. Myers has special interest in Internal Medicine and Obstetrics and Gynecology treating a broad spectrum of illness and conditions to give her acupunture-background-image-1patients of feeling of being functionally well.

What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is a method of encouraging the body to promote natural healing and to improve functioning. This is done by inserting needles and applying heat or electrical stimulation at very precise acupuncture points.
The modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system.

The improved energy and biochemical balance produced by acupuncture results in stimulating the body’s natural healing abilities, and in promoting physical and emotional well-being. All conditions and diseases can benefit from acupuncture and oriental medicine.

What is Functional Medicine?

Here are 5 basic principles that define Functional Medicine:

1) Functional Medicine views us all as being different; genetically and biochemically unique. This personalized health care treats the individual, not the disease. It supports the normal healing mechanisms of the body, naturally, rather than attacking disease directly.

2) Functional Medicine is deeply science based. The latest research shows us that what happens within us is connected in a complicated network or web of relationships. Understanding those relationships allows us to see deep into the functioning of the body.

3) Your body is intelligent and has the capacity for self-regulation, which expresses itself through a dynamic balance of all your body systems.

4) Your body has the ability to heal and prevent nearly all the diseases of aging.

5) Health is not just the absence of disease, but a state of immense vitality.

Here lies the clear distinction and definition of Functional Medicine. Instead of asking, “What drug matches up with this disease?” Functional Medicine asks the vital questions that very few conventional doctors ask: “Why do you have this problem in the first place?” and “Why has function been lost?” and “What can we do to restore function?” In other words, Functional Medicine looks to find the root cause or mechanism involved with any loss of function, which ultimately reveals why a set of symptoms is there in the first place, or why the patient has a particular disease label.

Nutraceuticals:

Although we may feel that we are eating properly and receiving the proper amount of nutrients via our food, the unfortunate truth is we are not. The way our food is sourced, stored, and prepared has decreased the necessary amount of vitamins and minerals. With that said, the use of nutraceuticals is vital to obtain optimal health and wellness. Dr. Myers only offers the best quality products for her patients decreasing allergic reactions and emphasizing whole food, plant based products to ensure her patients receive exactly what they are deficient in without any artificial ingredients or fillers.
Pure Encapsulations offers a complete line of research-based supplements made with the highest quality ingredients, validated by third-party testing, and manufactured within strict hypoallergenic guidelines. Our products are free from hidden fillers, binders, magnesium stearate, and artificial ingredients. Our products are researched by some of the world’s leading medical institutions, including the Mayo Clinic and Stanford University.

Homeopathy:

Homeopathy, or Homeopathic Medicine, is the practice of medicine that embraces a holistic, natural approach to the treatment of the sick. Homeopathy is holistic because it treats the person as a whole, rather than focusing on a diseased part or a labeled sickness.
Heel is a pharmaceutical company specialized in developing and manufacturing medicines made from natural ingredients. Heel manufactures almost all its products in Germany, in accordance with the highest international pharmaceutical standards. Our laboratories and manufacturing facilities are certified by globally recognized institutions such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and adhere to validated standards like Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP).

Treatments are 1 hour long and are most effective in a series of 3 to 10 sessions.

ACUPUNCTURE “TUMMY TUCK”

Like all acupuncture, the acupuncture “tummy tuck” works from the inside out to revitalize and rejuvenate the body. If you have lost weight but are disappointed with the tone and elasticity of your skin, an acupuncture tummy tuck can help tone and lift loose skin. It can also help reduce adipose tissue, disburse cellulite, and in combination with exercise and dietary adjustments this treatment can help you quickly loose inches while at the same time, cultivating gastrointestinal health.

Treatments are 1 hour long and are most effective in a series of 3 to 10 sessions.

CRANIO-SACRAL THERAPY

This therapeutic modality is a gentle, hands-on method of evaluating and enhancing the functionality of discrete body systems via manipulation of the cranio-sacral system. Gentle pressure on the muscular and facial systems is used to adjust dysfunctions in the body that cause pain or illness. I often use cranio-sacral treatment in conjunction with acupuncture to address specific health and wellness issues.

LYMPHATIC DRAINAGE THERAPY

Lymphatic drainage therapy is a massage-like treatment that encourages lymph to flow more freely throughout the body. The lymphatic system is your body’s trash collector. Dead cells, excess vitamins, drug residue, and the rest of your body’s waste travels through this system to eventually be discarded, helping you to stay healthy and strong. This treatment is used in conjunction with Facial Rejuvenation treatments, and is also often used for edema and pain reduction.
