Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2, 500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere. It is an effective form of medical treatment that has evolved into a complete holistic health care system. Practitioners of acupuncture and Chinese medicine have used this noninvasive treatment method to help millions of people become and stay well.
Acupuncture promotes natural healing. It can enhance the body's recuperative powers and immunity, support physical and emotional health, and improve overall function and well-being. It is a safe, painless and effective way to treat a wide variety of medical problems.
Auricular Acupuncture uses the ears as a microcosm. Through careful diagnosis and treatment, an acupuncturist can address various physical and emotional conditions using specific points on both ears to target specific conditions.
Often this style of acupuncture employs tiny needles, ear seeds, or ear tacks. This allows for a gentle stimulation of auricular points. Ear seeds and tacks may be left in the ears after treatment to apply continuous stimulation to the points.
My approach to the therapeutic massage session involves a holistic integration of modalities drawn from Swedish massage, deep tissue, stretching, and reflexology, while also incorporating therapeutic-grade organic essential oils that contain the highest quality for the body, mind, and senses when necessary. Each session is tailored to your specific needs.
Therapeutic Massage can be used to treat specific physical or stress related conditions. It uses a combination of techniques, including, but not limited to, Swedish, deep tissue, Craniosacral, Neuromuscular, Myofascial, and/or medical massage. When physical symptoms are the result of stress related issues, a Swedish massage becomes much more than a feel good massage. It becomes therapeutic!
Accident, repetitive actions, and everyday stresses can cause problems that may seem to take up permanent residence in a person's body. A gentle, effective therapy, massage can relieve pain and help heal certain conditions and prevent their return.
Research shows that massage decreases muscle tension, increases circulation, and calms the nervous system. The result is a cascade of physical and mental benefits that can help alleviate a wide variety of conditions.
Reflexology is a science based on the premise that the entire body (glands, organs, systems) is mirrored on the bottom of the foot (as well as hands and ears) . The method of relaxation techniques along with specific finger and thumb pressure is applied to corresponding reflex areas on the foot.
What an awesome lady that knows exactly how to heal through Chinese traditional medicine and well being! Thank you Leona! You did great job on helping me!
I think her technique is amazing and I always leave feeling relaxed. I would recommend her to everyone I know !!
Love it. Can't live without it. Has made me feel so much better.
I have had feet problems my whole life leaving me in a lot of pain. Someone suggested that I try acupuncture. So after looking on the internet, I found that Leona does this in Jesup. I have been going to her twice a week for about 4 weeks now and I can say that I do not have any pain in my feet whatsoever. Not only has she helped my feet, but one day while I was there for treatment, I mentioned that I had a slight headache. After treatment I was so relaxed and had no pain from the headache. I will continue acupuncture just to be pain free with my feet and feel healthy all over. Leona is one of the sweetest ladies you will ever meet and always makes you feel like she has all the time in the world to give just to you and your health.
