Four Seasons Acupuncture uses a blend of both Japanese style acupuncture and Chinese style acupuncture. Japanese style works on the principle that when the pulses are balanced then the body can heal itself. Chinese style acupuncture works on the principle of the flow of energy in the body, that when the energy gets blocked then there is pain and disease.
Japanese style acupuncture utilizes the use of six position pulse diagnosis and abdominal palpation based on five element theory. Six position pulse diagnosis is the placement of six fingers, three on each wrist. Japanese style is very gentle. It utilizes very shallow insertion. Japanese style works best for the root cause or the underline constitution of the person. It is extremely effective for balancing emotional well being by calming the physical and emotional response.
Chinese style acupuncture is more aggressive. Needle insertion is deep and stimulation is aggressive. One of the theories of Chinese medicine is meridian theory. The sick meridian is determined by the location of the pain or the signs and symptoms. This process works very well for headaches, neck, back and all types of pain. This is referred to as “chasing the pain”. Needling local points in conjunction with meridian theory or by themselves are also very effective.
Four Seasons Acupuncture also uses cupping and electro stimulation. Cupping moves the stagnated blood out of the muscles. There is great success with the use of cupping on people with sever chronic pain due to auto accidents or old injuries. Athletes who have extremely tight muscles due to over training have found cupping to be an effective method for healing. Electro stimulation is an aggressive treatment that is used it for more complex problems..
Four Seasons Acupuncture combines both Japanese and Chinese styles together by doing a root treatment in Japanese style to balance their pulses and doing a branch treatment in Chinese style to treat the symptoms. Japanese style is more effective in addressing the underline constitution of the person and Chinese style is more effective in addressing the symptoms. An integration of the two methods provides the best possible treatment for the patient, allowing for a free flow of energy that is balanced so the patient’s body can heal itself.
Yesterday I tried acupuncture for the first time. I was skeptical, but, went in with zero preconceived notions. I arrived for my appointment and filled out the concise paperwork and was taken back for my treatment. I found Ms. Wesley to be very through and professional in her initial consultation over the paperwork and put me at ease with all her layout of treatment.
As treatment began and progressed her professionalism and ability to put and keep me at ease came forth. I must admit I almost fell asleep I was so relaxed. After treating several areas she spent extra time on my back which I threw out a couple of days earlier………….I was amazed! She even put some medicinal pads on my back & foot to help in circulation and healing. She said they smelled a little, but, personally I liked the aroma! They felt great! Best of all my back improved 100% in one visit!!
I as the biggest skeptic must say I am impressed and will return for further treatment next week. I recommend her acupuncture for anybody and any age person and even called one of my friends who has had back surgery and told him he must seek her treatment for all his issues!
Margie Wesley has helped me tremendously! When I first went to Margie I could hardly walk. I had severe plantar fasciitis and was in extreme pain. Through the use of acupuncture and e-stem I am able to walk so much better. For anyone who has suffered from PF, the benefits of acupuncture are amazing. I highly recommend Margie Wesley for her skill and dedication.
Before I started seeing Dr. Wesley I suffered constant sever headaches and one to three migraines per week. Weekly massage therapy and chiropractic treatments were not providing lasting relief. I decided to give acupuncture a try and contacted Dr. Margie J Wesley. After seeing Dr. Wesley once a week for a few months my constant headaches were less severe and I suffered from fewer migraines. After continuing my treatment I now rarely suffer from migraines and I do not have constant headaches anymore. Dr. Wesley has made it possible for me to reintroduce activities into my life that I wasn’t able to participate in formerly.
