New Essential Oil Therapy at Thrive family Acupuncture
Thrive Family Acupuncture now incorporates custom blends of essential oil with acupuncture for the therapeutic treatment of patients. Essential oils maintain a highly energetic quality that resonates well with acupuncture points to enhance treatments for people that cannot take herbs internally or are too weak to receive acupuncture needles. It also improves results from treatments in everyone else.
Each essential oil has a unique set of properties that makes it good for treating certain imbalances. Jamie Szybala, LAc, MSTOM, chooses the appropriate oils based on the patient’s constitution, much like creating an herbal formula. The oils are then blended and applied to specific acupuncture points with a function similar to that of the oil. This creates a strong therapeutic effect, allowing the patient to improve their condition between treatments. Because the oils are blended in a carrier oil, their scent is kept to a minimum so that even people with sensitivity to fragrance can typically use them.
