This ancient, highly developed and refined system of healing
At Deerfield Healing Arts, acupuncture includes but is not limited to the shallow insertion of sterile, high quality, very thin, single use, disposable acupuncture needles. Following evaluation that includes gentle palpation of acupuncture pulses and points, Lisa typically inserts very few needles in very precise locations according to the patient's needs.
Other methods of point stimulation include still or moving contact with fingertips (acupressure or tuina), contact with crystals or tuning forks, and moxibustion (traditional practice of warming points with burning cones or rolls of dried mugwort leaves). Lisa also uses a far-infrared heat lamp when addressing deep and/or longstanding injuries.
Zero Balancing promotes experiences of relaxation and well-being through gentle, noninvasive lifting, stretching and engaging contacts performed with clothes on. Like acupuncture, Zero Balancing (ZB) addresses energetic patterns, but focuses on bones and ligaments thereby addressing the deepest currents of body energy. As our skeleton is our most enduring tissue, ZB helps us to meet, live from, and heal the most enduring aspects of ourselves.
