Stimulation of Life Energy, “Qi”
Acupuncture involves the flow of life energy, or Qi, inside the body. Wellness is directly related to the quality, quantity, and balance of Qi, which flows along specific pathways known as meridians. When Qi flows freely, we thrive physically, mentally, and emotionally.
But a Qi obstruction leaves us vulnerable to injury and illness. Acupuncture treatment stimulates Qi and promotes natural healing by inserting fine, sterile needles along acupoints on the body. Acupuncture is a holistic, energy-driven approach to health care based upon thousands of years of clinical knowledge.
Whether in Portland, Maine, or another part of the world, holistic healthcare is the most plentiful medicine on earth with more than a billion people turning to this unique, proven combination of science and art for healing body, mind, and spirit.
Traditional Chinese Medicine and acupuncture is rooted in the belief that the human body is incredibly resilient. It heals from the inside. Acupuncture goes beyond traditional medicine by focusing on the individual rather than the disease. This empowering and integrated medical treatment aims to restore your energy and balance, ultimately, leading to optimal health and enhanced quality of life. Acupuncture treats many medical conditions and it also boosts the immune system and enhances our overall well-being.
I cannot say enough good about Dr. Stein. He is incredibly smart, thoughtful and caring. I went to see him after an odd series of medical events that had my body all out of wack. He has been great at helping break all of the symptoms/issues down and working on them one by one. Helping find the rot cause, not just treating the symptoms. A++++
I was diagnosed with stage II breast cancer and started going to Rocky Coast Family Acupuncture a year ago to help with the side effects of chemotherapy. Jason Stein met with me on my first consultation and I immediately felt a connection with him, as if I had known him forever. I found it extremely easy to share my concerns and medical issues with Jason. Not only did he always come equipped with a variety of options to help me, it was evident that he genuinely cared about my health and well being. Whenever I would present him with a new issue, he would spend extra hours researching the best regimen to help alleviate my symptoms. Jason and his team go above and beyond with their patients to truly get to the root of the problem.
Most recently the medications that I am on have caused severe joint pain. It was to the point where I was potentially going to have to switch to something less effective in combating breast cancer recurrence. Jason provided me with a variety of natural supplements to help remedy post chemo side effects and work as natural cancer fighters. He provided me with supplements that are proven to naturally help with joint pain. After about a week I no longer experienced the severe joint pain that was a result of my medication and I was able to stay on the medication that has the greatest success rate. Additionally, knowing that anything I am given at Rocky Coast does not come with another list of added side effects has really kept my mind at ease.
Acupuncture has also played a large role in keeping my anxiety at bay during such a stressful time. I have always had anxiety but after my diagnosis this heightened quite a bit. Along with the anxiety associated with this diagnosis, I started to experience low energy and depression from the combination of medications I was taking. Acupuncture has helped me a great deal with these aspects as well. My medical team has been very aggressive with treating the disease but often times the emotional component in dealing with cancer can be overlooked. The team at Rocky Coast understands that there is a connection between the two. They focus on what is being depleted both emotionally and physically during a time when so many medicines are working in combination with one another.
If you or someone you know has recently been diagnosed with cancer, I would highly recommend starting acupuncture as soon as possible. Getting on a schedule of one to two appointments a week early on will help you to get ahead of the many side effects that come along with cancer treatments. Integrative therapies in combination with western medicine has been a huge contributor in feeling as well as I do today and I feel so lucky to be a patient at Rocky Coast.
