What problems is auriculotherapy good for? Auricular Therapy is good for acute painful problems alleviating pain almost immediately or within 24 to 48 hours. Auricle therapy is good for chronic degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and other chronic painful conditions like spinal stenosis and other chronic central nervous system conditions such as multiple sclerosis. Other conditions include diseases and dysfunctions of the gastrointestinal, genital urinary and cardiovascular systems. Auricular therapy should not take the place of acute orthodox medical care in life threatening situations. What Is Auricular Therapy? Auricular therapy is one of the most important components of traditional Chinese acupuncture. It is a specialized form where the auricle (ear) is used to stimulate various organs and meridians in the body. The ear represents a fetus in the womb but in an inverted position. It is a microcosm of the macrocosm: the ear represents the entire body.
Ancient Chinese herbal formulas are as effective now as they were when first introduced more than 2,000 years ago. Most formulas consist of two to eighteen different types of herbs. Formulas treat a wide variety of symptoms while stimulating the body's natural healing process. Hospital studies prescribing individualized complex herbal formulas have demonstrated excellent results with patients who fail to respond to conventional pharmaceutical treatments. Chinese herbology often incorporates ingredients from all parts of plants, the leaf, stem, flower, root, and also ingredients from animals and minerals. Herbology is traditionally one of the more important modalities utilized in traditional chinese medicine (TCM). Each herbal medicine prescription is a blend of many herbs tailored to the individual patient. 30 to 50 minutes Chinese Herbal Consultation, Cost $125 (this price does not include the cost of the herbs)

Reiki reduces stress and relieves tension. Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa in Phoenix has been providing Reiki sessions since 1988. Suddenly Slimmer's therapist experience and skills with Reiki energy healing have been beneficial to the many clients, who describe it as "energizing" and "relaxing."
Reiki, developed in Japan, enjoys large support in Asian societies and is currently used by many Western medical practitioners, nurses and hospitals as a complement to their traditional treatments.
Although widely respected as a "complementary" therapy, Reiki should not be considered as an alternative to traditional medical intervention. Scientific research into the benefits of Reiki have been inconclusive, partly due to the difficulty of separating out the "placebo" effect. That is, the "healing" feeling that clients perceive cannot be accurately identified as coming directly from Reiki. Clients do, however, report Reiki as being beneficial, especially regarding general well being, relaxation and stress and tension related issues.
