Acupuncture is the stimulation of specific points along the skin of the body involving thin needles, heat, or pressure and corrects imbalances in the flow of “Qi” [chee] through channels known as meridians. Qi is similar to substances found in the body such as blood, nerves, and lymph. It flows throughout the entire body and organs. Acupuncture manipulates the flow of Qi, bringing the body into a natural balance.

In Japan, parents bring healthy children to the Shonishin clinic on full moon days to boost their immune system and maintain good health by stimulating acupuncture meridians. We would like to bring this important tradition to Vashon by offering low-cost clinics once a month for monthly “tune-up” treatments on or around the full moon. A variety of safe and gentle treatment modalities are used including “shonishin”, which involves using a series of tools to scrape, tap and rub acupuncture points and meridians. Other forms of treatment include the application of tiny magnets, herbal medicine, and sometimes the insertion of thin needles. Together these techniques can be used to treat a variety of acute and chronic conditions, including things like ear aches, frequent colds and flus, sleep problems, bedwetting, and behavior issues.

Qi Gong (pronounced Chee Gung) is a powerful system of healing and energy medicine from China. It is the use of breathing techniques, gentle movements, and meditation to cleanse, strengthen, and circulate the life energy (qi). Qi Gong practice leads to better health and vitality and a tranquil state of mind. The slow gentle movements of most Qi Gong forms can be easily adapted, even for the physically challenged and can be practiced by all age groups.
