Floral Acupuncture is a gentle and nurturing treatment that employs flower essences rather than the insertion of traditional Acupuncture needles. The functions of the essences and in some cases gem elixirs are matched to the function of the traditional Acupuncture point. The essences are directly applied to the appropriate points to treat the presenting condition. Once applied to the traditional Acupuncture points, the essences work with the natural intelligence of the body and within the extensive network of meridians and corresponding points. This method of treatment is wonderful for children and patients who are needle sensitive. In my practice, treatments of Floral Acupuncture are also supported by gem light therapy.
