by Erica Honea L.Ac

Several of our patients mentioned having nightmares this week in addition to their regular health issues. Whether your dreams are personal or more globally focused, acupuncture can help calm the mind, ease the intensity of strong emotions, and allow the body to relax enough to make better sleep possible.

Seated Qigong

by Sean Honea L.Ac

Qigong Quote: Suzanne Friedman

Interested in learning about Qigong but worried about standing for long periods of time?Fortunately, it can be done seated in chair or on a cushion on the floor. Qigong is an accessible way to calm the mind and promote health, while moving your body in a gentle way. Our instructor Sean Honea, Licensed Acupuncturist and Certified Qigong Therapist, will be focusing on seated exercises for the rest of this year in his Wednesday and Friday classes. See our website for details. Beginners welcome.

Paying It Forward Board

by Sean Honea L.Ac

Ying Yang Candles

Since Summer, Southside Community Acupuncture (SCA) has been experimenting with a Pay-It-Forward or voucher board, which allows us to offer discounts or partial payment for those who cannot afford the lower end of our sliding scale: currently $40 for new patients; $25.00 for returning patients

How It Works: At your appointment select a voucher(s) located at the front desk and fill out SCA’s new patient forms. A patient can use multiple vouchers at the same time, and once a voucher has been posted anyone including the person who originally posted it can redeem it for a discounted treatment. There is no list to sign up for. No financial data is collected.

At SCA we believe that treatment sessions should be long, frequent, and affordable in order to facilitate better health and wellness. Our flexible group treatment model allows us to maximize the duration of each treatment; i.e. we never ask you to leave early to make room for another patient.

If you know anyone who might benefit from our program, please feel free to send them our way.

Qigong means "life energy cultivation" and has been used in China for hundreds of years to relieve stress, promote health, and relax the mind. Similar to yoga, Qigong involves rhythmic movement, focused breathing, and concentrated awareness. All levels welcome.

Intro to Acupuncture and Qigong

by Sean Honea L.Ac

Intro to Acupuncture Qigong SCA

Complimentary Intro to Acupuncture and Qigong
Facilitated by Sean Honea, Licensed Acupuncturist and Certified Qigong Therapist

Wednesday, September 19, 11:15am to 12:15pm

1st half: Learn principles of Chinese Medicine such as Qi, Yin and Yang
2nd half: Beginning Qigong Class

Several thousand years ago, East Asian practitioners discovered that the body forms disharmonies as a result of the various physical and mental stresses of life. Chinese medical theory explains these disharmonies as an imbalance of opposing forces. This imbalance disrupts the movement of the body's vital energy or Qi. Acupuncture restores the flow of qi by inserting and manipulating hair-thin needles at specific points. Similar to yoga, Qigong involves rhythmic movement, focused breathing, and concentrated awareness. Qigong consists of gentle exercises that increase energy, promote health, and relax the mind.

Please join us for this complimentary session!
