Acupuncture, the ancient Chinese medicinal practice, has become a popular alternative to the many modern treatments that people are finding ineffective. These include expensive pills, ointments, suppositories, powders, bars, and more. At Whole Life Balance, customers can now reap the numerous benefits that come with acupuncture services while being treated by the — best-certified acupuncturists in Santa Monica.
"We work individually with our clients to help them achieve their health and lifestyle goals by identifying specific areas of need and focusing treatment on the root causes of their issues, not just the symptoms," said Shane Griffin, owner of Whole Life Balance and believer in holistic treatments like acupuncture. “The Whole Life Balance approach not only repairs the damages to the regions affected by nutritional neglect, but it also empowers the client, psychologically improving their self-esteem.”
Acupuncture involves the insertion of thin needles superficially into the skin to stimulate small wells of energy. These wells are acupuncture points and the energy itself is called Qi. Qi flows through the acupuncture points along energy channels, or meridians, and is sometimes translated as life-force energy, which animates, informs, and enlivens all living things. Through clinical trials, acupuncture has been proven effective in treating various medical conditions and its use has expanded into Western and more conventional medical practices.
“According to the World Health Organization, acupuncture is an effective treatment for countless health issues," added Griffin. "These include, but are not limited to, allergic rhinitis, dysentery, depression, facial pain, headaches, hypertension, renal colic, stroke recovery, morning sickness, and relief from pain in the knees, lower back, neck, and more. Acupuncture typically involves several weekly or bi-weekly treatments and most courses consist of up to 12 sessions. A visit to our acupuncturist will involve an exam and an assessment of your condition, insertion of needles, and advice on self-care.”
Whole Life Balance incorporates a variety of treatment protocols, including: Vitamin IV Drip Therapy, Nutritional Counseling, Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST), Massage Therapy, Acupuncture, Yoga, Pilates, Personal Training, and of course, Acupuncture.
