Rooted in Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture is a modality that can address virtually any imbalance in the body, even if there is no Western diagnosis. Acupuncture points are selected based upon a Chinese Medicine diagnostic model, which considers all aspects of health, lifestyle, and emotional well-being. The classical Chinese explanation is that channels of energy run in regular patterns through the body and over its surface. These energy channels, called meridians, are like rivers flowing through the body to irrigate and nourish the tissues. An obstruction in the movement of these energy rivers is like a dam that backs up in others. The acupuncture needles unblock the obstructions at the dams, and reestablish the regular flow through the meridians. Acupuncture treatments can therefore help the body’s internal organs to correct imbalances in their digestion, absorption, and energy production activities. The modern scientific explanation is that needling the acupuncture points stimulates the nervous system to release chemicals in the muscles, spinal cord, and brain. These chemicals will either change the experience of pain, or they will trigger the release of other chemicals and hormones which influence the body’s own internal regulating system, acting as a wake up call to the natural healing potential within.

Reflexology is an ancient, natural healing art. It is based on the principle that there are reflexes in the hands, feet and ears that correspond to every part, gland and organ of the body. Through application of pressure on these reflexes, reflexology relieves tension, improves circulation and promotes the natural function of the related areas of the body. In ancient times we stimulated reflexes naturally by walking barefoot over rocks, stones and rough ground, or by using our hands more often to climb, build or work. In today’s modern world we have lost much of nature’s way of maintaining a balanced and healthy equilibrium. Reflexology helps to restore this balance and promote natural health and vitality. At Macri Wellness Center, Reflexology is conducted on the feet.

Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) is a system of medicine at least 23 centuries old that aims to prevent or heal disease by maintaining or restoring balance. TCM makes use of herbs and herbal formulas to strengthen organ function and support good health. An understanding of the functions of various herbal components gives the TCM practitioner a way to create a custom formula for each patient’s specific condition. Those who are trained to prescribe Chinese Herbs have a 4-year Master’s degree and are nationally board certified in Oriental Medicine. We utilize a pharmacy that ensures high quality herbs and manufacturing standards. In TCM, herbs are often combined in formulas and given as teas, capsules, liquid extracts, granules, or powders.
Reiki is an energetic therapy used to to relax and strengthen a patient’s wellbeing. It can be used for many issues including reducing pain, facilitating anxiety, reducing side-effects of medications, and support recovery after injuries or surgery. The Traditional uses of Reiki are that of facilitating Mind/Body balance. Reiki is a great integrative therapy to try because people generally start feeling better very quickly. As symptoms and pain lessen, and people feel hopeful about regaining their health, they feel more able to incorporate other needed health interventions or make needed lifestyle changes.

ELECTRICAL MUSCLE STIMULATION
Electrical Muscle Stimulation is an exceptional way to help the body in the healing process. This is accomplished by sending a very small electrical current into the affected soft tissue injury or muscle spasm. The therapy utilizes this current in an effort to help reduce swelling and release trigger points that may have the muscle locked up. It does this by helping the body to release natural relievers of pain often referred to as endorphins.
This is a great therapy if there is a spasm in a back or neck muscle. It works well in relaxing the muscle and allowing it to return to its normal state rather quickly. Short therapy sessions are excellent at facilitating healing from acute and chronic pain.
