Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been an essential part of medicine for thousands of years in the East. Approximately 2,000 different acupuncture points lie along the body’s meridians.  Stimulating these points with acupuncture needles relieves obstructions in the flow of energy, enabling the body to heal. In a Western view, acupuncture is explained by stimulating the central nervous system (the brain and spinal cord) to release chemicals called neurotransmitters and hormones. These chemicals dull pain, boost the immune system and regulate various body functions.  Acupuncture requires patients to think about health in entirely different ways, there is no biomedical equivalent for qi or meridians. It will remind you that there are multiple ways of seeing the world. The driving idea behind acupuncture is that we’re already in possession of everything we need to be well. Acupuncture does not add or subtract anything. Rather, it prompts the body to do what it already knows how to do. It reminds you that you have the power to heal yourself.

Cupping

Cupping is a safe, non-invasive, and inexpensive technique.  It is used by practitioners of Chinese medicine to treat colds, lung infections, as well as muscle and joint pain, particularly in the back.

Guasha

This ancient method of promoting  energy and blood circulation as well as the removal of toxic heat, stagnant blood and lymph fluid from the body. It is an extremely important, almost miraculous method of improving one’s health. It involves no needles just the scraping of the skin with a Guasha tool.  If you suffer from chronic pain,  excess systemic toxicity,  poor circulation,  lymphatic congestion, inflammation,  fatigue,  infections, or reoccurring soar throats you will greatly benefit from guasha.

Testimonials

“Dr. Ashley made me a total believer in Eastern Medicine! I am someone that has always been prone to throat infections that completely debilitate me with fevers and exhaustion, and was always treated with all sorts of antibiotics as a kid.  Now, as an adult, I have tried to distance myself from antibiotics and focus more on preventative measures, sure as eati…ng better and taking multivitamins.  Although, I am a self-proclaimed baby when it comes to pain tolerance, I wanted to try out going to an Eastern Doctor.  I went to Ashley one day when I felt my throat beginning to itch and hurt.  She treated me with acupuncture and cupping and sent me home with a prescription of “drink lots of water.”  When I woke up I was floored with how much better I felt!  For good measure, I went back to her the next day.  I felt 100% better after only 2 treatments!  For me, I appreciate her educating me to about the tools to heal my body, as opposed giving me tons of prescriptions to treat symptoms (usually temporarily anyways).   Since then, she has treated me any time I have had a cold coming on and even for my menstrual cramps!  Even now that I live in Miami and she lives in Tampa, I travel to be treated by her!  She is EXTREMELY gentle and has a wonderful calming presence about her.  She is so knowledgeable and takes the time to explain what she is doing and why.   I have never felt healthier or stronger.  Thanks Dr. Ashley! “-Megan Palmer
