Meridian Integrative Health & Medicine
One of my mentors once very eloquently described life to me as being "rhythm stacked upon rhythm," in other words we are a symphony of all the rhythms of life and biology, playing side by side. There is the rhythm of the heartbeat, the rhythm of the breath, the rhythm of our hunger and meals, and a rhythm to our sleep and wake cycle. There is a rhythm to our biochemistry, and hormonal cycles. In a grand sense, there are also weekly, monthly, seasonal, and yearly rhythms as well, such as how we start craving yummy savory foods around Thanksgiving, and setting our sights to new plans for the New Year.
Acupuncture can be a useful ally in helping to establish a new healing rhythm in your life. Acupuncture helps our bodies experience a therapeutic relaxation response. This response can be very helpful in allowing our body the space and resources to respond and recover from life’s demands and stressors. Acupuncture works best when utilized regularly and frequently, because just as the effects of stress are cumulative, so too are the effects of relaxation.
We are pleased to announce the arrival of Group Acupuncture Services at Meridian Integrative Health & Medicine. Group Acupuncture, also known as Community Acupuncture, is acupuncture provided in a group setting at a low and affordable cost. Group acupuncture helps make treatment more affordable and accessible to everyone, and as such people are able to come more frequently and regularly for their treatment sessions. By coming in frequently and regularly, people are able to receive a greater benefit from acupuncture for their health and wellness. In doing so, they help to establish a new healing rhythm as part of their lifestyle. I encourage you to explore the creation of your own healing rhythms in the New Year, and hope you consider reserving a space for acupuncture within the symphony of your life. Please call 732.994.7855 to schedule your treatment.
