Acupuncture & Reiki


Unlocking the benefits of acupuncture and reiki

There are many holistic healing practices that have gained popularity in recent years, and among the most recognized are acupuncture and reiki. Both of these techniques have been around for centuries and originated from different parts of the world – acupuncture from China and reiki from Japan. While they may seem very different at first glance, many practitioners believe that combining these two powerful methods can produce even more significant benefits for the mind, body, and spirit.

One of the main reasons why acupuncture and reiki are often combined is that they both aim to restore balance and promote healing in the body. Acupuncture works by stimulating specific points on the body with thin needles, which helps to regulate the flow of energy or qi. On the other hand, reiki involves using hands to transfer energy to the body, promoting relaxation and reducing stress. Reiki is often used in hospitals with patients undergoing a multitude of treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation.

When used together, acupuncture and reiki can create a more comprehensive approach to healing. Acupuncture can help to release any physical blockages in the body, while reiki can work on an energetic level to clear emotional and mental imbalances. This dual approach allows for a deeper and more holistic healing experience.

Moreover, combining acupuncture and reiki can enhance the effectiveness of both techniques. Research has shown that using these two methods together can have a synergistic effect, where the benefits of each practice are amplified when used in combination. For example, acupuncture may help to increase blood flow and circulation, which can support the body’s ability to absorb and utilize the energy from reiki.


What are the effects?

One potential benefit of combining acupuncture and reiki is stress reduction. Both practices have been shown to promote relaxation and reduce stress levels. Acupuncture has been found to decrease the body’s production of cortisol, known as the “stress hormone,” while reiki promotes deep relaxation, which can help individuals manage stress and anxiety.

Another potential effect is pain relief. Acupuncture is commonly used to alleviate chronic pain, and studies have shown that it can release endorphins, which are natural painkillers. Reiki, on the other hand, can improve circulation and reduce inflammation, which may also contribute to pain relief.

In addition to physical benefits, combining acupuncture and reiki may also have emotional and spiritual effects. Both practices can help individuals release blocked emotions and promote a sense of inner peace and harmony. For those seeking a deeper connection with their inner self and a sense of overall well-being, this combination may be particularly beneficial.

Each treatment involves the insertion of tiny acupuncture needles into specific areas of the face, ears, neck, hands, feet, and legs to affect changes in the face as well as the whole body. On your first visit, we discuss your overall health history, including any physical, mental or emotional issues in your life that you feel you want to work on. We will evaluate what changes you would like to see in your face and skin as well as discuss your overall health goals, and then begin your treatment. Ultra fine needles are inserted while you are relaxing and lying down on a comfortable massage table. Once the needles are in place, you rest for 20-30 minutes. Facial acupuncture treatments are not limited to just acupuncture. They quite often include massage, jade roller and/or derma rollers, application of select herbal washes/toners/moisturizers appropriate for your skin type and tone, and end with a mask application if requested. In general, the treatments are very relaxing and take anywhere from 75-90 minutes.​
