Lifestyle Counseling & Behavior Modification

Every Treatment Session at Mend includes some form of counseling because it is impossible to separate the body from the spirit. If there is something amiss physically, there is probably something amiss emotionally! However, sometimes a more in depth Counseling session is needed. 

Nutrition – Acupuncturists have extensive training in Nutritional Counseling. Let's sit down for an in-depth discussion about how your present eating habits need to be tweaked to fit your health and lifestyle goals.

Emotional Freedom Technique - EFT utilizes acupuncture theory and stimulates certain meridian points on the body by tapping on them with our fingertips. It is a wonderful adjust therapy to acupuncture as the patient can learn to perform EFT on their own at home, in between Acupuncture sessions. Properly done, EFT appears to balance disturbances in the meridian system and thus often reduces the conventional therapy procedures from months or years down to minutes or hours. The basic Tapping process is easy to learn, can be done anywhere, and can be used to provide impressive do-it-yourself results. EFT is effective for PTSD patients, anxiety issues, as well as for pediatric patients who want to warm up to acupuncture slowly. 

EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) is a therapy treatment that alleviate the distress associated with traumatic memories. EMDR facilitates accessing and processing traumatic memories without reliving the trauma. After treatment with EMDR therapy, distress is relieved, negative beliefs are reformulated by making new associations to the traumatic memory. These new associations result in new information processing, elimination of emotional distress, and development of healthier cognitive insights. Used in conjunction with Acupuncture, EMDR is a powerful tool for anxiety and PTSD.
