Although it is only recently getting attention in the United States,
acupuncture is actually one of the oldest known systems of healing.
Though it springs from ancient knowledge, acupuncture has shown a
remarkable ability to adapt and remain popular. In fact, to this day,
more people are treated with acupuncture than any other medical system
in the world, including pharmaceuticals.
Studies have shown that with the insertion of acupuncture needles the body responds in certain ways. Once the needle penetrates the skin
the body responds by treating the needle as a foreign invader.This triggers the body’s injury response. Since the needles are so fine and sterile, and the skin is swabbed with alcohol there is no injury or risk of infection. The injury response will divert the blood flow to the needle and increase circulation to the affected area. Blood flow brings oxygen, nutrients,and the immune system and treats the problem locally. When the injury response is triggered, the body will try to sedate the patient by releasing endorphins. Endorphins provide the quintessential relaxation
and sense of well-being that acupuncture is known for.
Acupuncture can be adapted to treat limitless ailments.

Lyme Disease Flower Essence Treatment
A flower essence is a liquid sun infusion of a plant made from a flower. These liquids are energetic in nature. When ingested they tend to work very quickly.
This gentle, no needles treatment takes 45 minutes for the initial visit and 30 minutes for follow up visits. The average number of treatments is between 7-12, this number occasionally varies. The variables include: How long client has had the disease, how many antibiotics has the client had, age, how sick is the client, client's lifestyle and personality, diet and exercise, and are there any co-infections. Weekly treatments are recommended at first and then every other week when sufficient progress is noted. When the client feels a consistent shift in symptoms, Pat will teach a method of self-treatment.
This treatment works on animals, and works well with dogs and horses. Animals require fewer treatments and their recovery is more dynamic.
