An Introduction to Reiki and FREE Treatment!

No one likes to go into a doctor’s appointment with no idea what to expect.  We want to educate and inform our patients before they even come in the door–so they know what the treatment accomplishes, how it works, and what they themselves want to do before and after care in our clinic. Our newest provider, Jami Shetler, offers a service wholly new to BodyPoint Medicine, and we want our patients to understand our advanced and alternative treatment options.

Reiki is a Japanese technique that promotes healing by reducing stress, encouraging relaxation, and replacing low or unhealthy energy with healing energy. Reiki is a cosmic, “life-force” energy, and when that energy within us is low, sickness and physical pain often result, due to depletion.

What to expect:

During a session, the patient relaxes on a massage table while the Reiki practitioner administers Reiki with different hand positions, both on and above the patient’s body. The patient remains clothed, and relaxes with soft music, and often falls into a relaxed, meditative state during the session. The practitioner often uses crystals for their healing benefits around the patient’s body, and the aroma of essential oils to create a balance that is the most beneficial for the individual patient. The practitioner also uses Reiki symbols to break up foreign energy, and replace blockages with healthy energy. The patient may feel the practitioner’s hands grow very warm, or at times cold, depending on the energy needed in that area of the patient’s body. During the session, the practitioner will be in a meditative state, with her eyes closed most of the time, while she actively looks at the chakras and the alignment of the patient’s body, pinpointing areas of stress, foreign energy, and pain.

From Jami:

Jami Shetler Reiki Longmont, CO BodyPoint MedicineAs a Reiki master, I look past the physical to see where stress and foreign energy are plaguing the patient. Everything spiritual relates to us on a physical level, so often I see stress hitting a person on a certain area of their body, and the client will usually confirm that they are experiencing physical pain or problems in that area as well. Or, at times it’s something such as foreign energy in a throat chakra that makes it difficult for a person to express their truth to others. Or the patient has suffered the ending of an important relationship in their life, and their heart chakra is extremely wounded and vulnerable. Through treatments and the healing of the heart chakra, the patient can recover much quicker both emotionally and physically. Reiki breaks up the hindrances and refuels the patient with light, love, health and peace. When our spiritual bodies are balanced, we experience lowered stress, serenity and better health in our lives.”

 

 

Reiki treats the entire person, including the mind, the emotions, and the spirit. It has the capability to aid in the recovery of virtually any illness or struggle, with beneficial effects. It is not uncommon for a patient to report complete life changes and better moods feelings in general when keeping up Reiki treatments as a sort of maintenance. Reiki is safe and works well in conjunction with all medical and therapeutic treatments. It helps to alleviate side effects and promote healing.

 

On Thursday July 2nd, Jami will be offering FREE Introductory Reiki treatments all day!  

Call ahead to reserve your time, but walk-ins welcome!  

Facial Rejuvenation, the Natural Face Lift

Rachelle Lambert LAc Facial Rejuvenation BodyPoint Medicine Longmont, CO Facial acupuncture treatments are scheduled for 90 minutes. Facial rejuvenation is a special technique of acupuncture that improves the appearance of the face. Blood circulation is increased, resulting in a reduced appearance of facial discolorations, scars, inflammation, and a healthier glow. Even one treatment will improve the appearance of your skin.

 

Facial acupuncture is also known as acupuncture face lifting. A Chinese facial massage will be performed first, so make sure to come in without make-up. With this technique, the needles are placed under the skin of the wrinkle, to stimulate collagen production underneath. Over the course of ten treatments the skin plumps up below the wrinkle, filling in the line. Muscle tone is increased, lifting the jaw and chin areas.

 

Ten treatments spaced one week apart are considered one “face lift”, and although results vary, many people experience skin smoothing results similar to Botox treatments. There is zero down time and you can do all normal activities immediately after a treatment. Bruising happens rarely, but sometimes cannot be avoided due to the large amount of micro-capillaries in your facial skin. Make sure to plan your ten treatments around any public events where bruising is undesired (weddings, performances, etc.) Results do vary as each of us has a different body and as a result a different process of collagen metabolism. The results last for an average of five years with maintenance.

After becoming a Registered and Certified Massage Therapist in Colorado, Shevone relocated to Longmont to raise her two young sons. She enjoys gardening and working on her home renovations in her free time, as well as introducing her kids to the love of the outdoors. Shevone has studied many forms of massage therapy, and through her years of experience in treating a wide assortment of clients, from top tier athletes, to expecting mothers and chronic pain patients, has created her own unique brand of massage by mixing and matching varieties of massage to each individual client’s needs. Shevone utilizes

Hot Rock Massage
Deep Tissue Massage
Trigger Point Therapy
Swedish Massage
Reflexology
Sports Massage
Myofascial Release
Cranial Sacral Massage
Prenatal Massage
Geriatric Massage
Aromatherapy

She is an advocate in the treatment room, and encourages her patients to communicate what they are hoping to achieve with each of her body tune-ups. Shevone uses deep touch therapies to release trigger points without creating a pain reaction for clients by adapting range of motion movements into each massage. She prepares personalized pamphlets for each client to take home, filled with stretches and exercises geared towards each specific issue. At our office, we see many patients with spinal issues, some that have even required surgery, and these massages can help with ongoing pains or even scar tissue pain that can prevent people from having a full range of motion.
