September Deals @ BodyPoint Medicine

Hello Friends and Fans of BPM!

We are excited to bring you a new promotion for the month of September. We are very excited to have Rachelle Lambert and Jami Shetler join our healthcare team.

Rachelle Lambert LAc provides Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) as well as eastern style acupuncture and Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture. She works with local dermatology and plastic surgery offices to assist clients in revitalizing and maintaining their complexion, and reducing scars and blemishes.  Acupuncture is a form of Chinese medicine that has treated people for over five thousand years. Chinese medicine sees the body as working together as a whole organism. The whole person will be treated, not just the disease. We get to the root cause of your condition, and treat the cause versus treating symptoms. Other aspects of traditional Chinese medicine include herbal therapy, dietary therapy, and certain breathing exercises called tai qi or qi gong. The basis of Chinese medicine is on the concept of Qi/chi. A way of describing Qi is life energy. Qi runs through twelve channels (meridians or pathways) through the body. These channels run from the top of the head to the bottom of the feet. Physics have proven that everything is made of, and radiates energy. Acupuncture helps to mediate the energy flow in the body, resulting in decreased pain, increased blood circulation, strengthened immune system, reduced stress, balanced hormones and neurotransmitters, and a balanced nervous system.

Reiki Master Jami Shetler, has devoted her life to healing and the integrative field of energy medicine, treating a multitude of chronic and acute conditions.  Assisting individuals to heal on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual levels is an ongoing passion of hers. Reiki is the Life Force Energy which sustains and restores us, bringing us back to optimum health and balance. When the body becomes depleted of this healing energy, imbalances and energetic blocks began to occur. These imbalances and blocks are the root cause for most ailments. By restoring the body with Reiki, one’s energy begins to flow uninterrupted. Healing outcomes of Reiki are many; alleviation of pain and discomfort, emotional balance and peace, sharpened intuition and clarity of thoughts, connectedness to humanity and community, relief of stress and tension, deeper sleep and optimum potential, increased joy and a renewed love for life, and others. In essence, Reiki returns us to our desired state of being.

 

We want to help our patients relax and enjoy a higher quality of life, pain free and sleeping easy. So in September we will be offering discounted treatments with Rachelle and Jami for stress relief.  You can contact me, Carolyn Wrightam, to find out more information or to schedule.
