Our immune system is constantly working for us, whether to help kick a cough or cold, or to keep our body balanced. Acupuncture is a safe and effective method of mediating the immune system, keeping the body in a state of balance.
Allergies happen when the immune system feels threatened. It responds by working hard to get rid of the allergen, and mounts a defense against further invasion. Allergy medication can be extremely effective, but it can also cause side effects such as drowsiness, fatigue and dryness. Acupuncture, in conjunction with herbs and supplements, can significantly benefit those suffering with seasonal allergies without the unwanted side effects of medication.
We commonly see auto-immune disease in fertility patients, as well as those with arthritis, gut problems, anxiety and depression. Symptoms of auto-immune disease can be so varied that they add confusion. We use acupuncture, herbs and supplements to create a multi-faceted approach. Our first priority is always to get our patients to feel more comfortable in their own skin. Next, we address the root cause of the problem, mediating the immune system to restore balance in the body. The net result is a more easeful, sustainable way of living with auto-immune conditions.
Strengthening the immune system.
Keeping our bodies strong in order to combat colds and flu season is often a priority for anyone with school-age children, the elderly or those who catch every cold that goes around. In China, herbs and acupuncture are started months in advance of the cold season in order to get the body in tip-top shape. We use a similar strategy, working with herbs, supplements and acupuncture to help our patients navigate the winter season with as much ease as possible.
Angel has been great to work with on releasing tension in my back. This is the first acupuncture experience and she has helped me ease into it. The combination of cupping, scrapping, and acupuncture has worked well for me.
The acupuncture has given me such relief from the pain. I was able to sleep again and not feel the excruciating nerve pain. Anne Marie Deas has been so awesome treating my back pain, helping with stress, and overall making me feel better. Lokahi is a great clinic so peaceful and calming inside. I highly recommend Lokahi Acupuncture!!!
I’ve had many opportunities to have acupuncture here and in China. It’s been my experience that to have good results, you need to find someone really good, who knows what they’re doing! In the south bay area, I have not found anyone better than Lokahi acupuncturists!!
My experience at Lokahi has helped build a sense of confidence in myself that I can manage my condition and continue to live a very rewarding and pain free life. If you’re contemplating acupuncture services, I highly recommend Ann Marie, and Lokahi in general, as I’m certain everyone who works there is just as wonderful given the reviews I read.
I’ve been going to lokahi and to Angel a number of times for athletic muscular soreness, some joint pain, deep painful knots etc. I used to visit a chiro and sometimes that worked but was always painful during and many days after. Acupuncture doesn’t hurt and Angel has excellent touch. I don’t know how acupuncture works but it works so I keep going. Highly recommended.
