Here at AcuPUNKture, we are planning ahead in case we are not able to safely re-open our doors to the public in 2 weeks due to the COVID-19 outbreak and current need for quarantine and social distancing.

 

Over the next couple of weeks we will be preparing for and piloting Virtual treatments  in which existing clients can book tele-treatments with us and enjoy a guided treatment from the comfort of their homes. During these sessions we will communicate via phone or video-chat while I guide you through the treatment. Prior to this appointment I will send out an “At home Acu-kit” to your home with all the essentials needed for 4+ treatments.

 

If you have acupuncture coverage through insurance, you will be able to utilize insurance with these treatments as I will be guiding you on insertion points for applying press-needles along with magnets, essential oils, salves, gua-sha for myofacial release and more. Out of pocket price for treatment will be $70 and includes your at home Acu-kit. All modalities of payment currently used at the office will be accepted including flex-spending and HMO accounts.

 

This is what Japanese acupuncture is all about- Using all of our modalities and “tricks in our tool box” to achieve powerful treatments when we can only do minimal needle insertions!

 

During your 60 minute tele-consult & treatment I will also be available to answer any self-care questions and recommend any nutritional or supplementation advice. For clients that already have an at home cupping set or wish to purchase an inexpensive set for guided at home application this is available also.

 

Each kit will be customized and may contain: 
-A Gua sha spoon for guided myofascial/muscle release
-Mini essential oil bottles filled with Snow Lotus Organic essential oils tailored to the client’s specific/usual needs- we can discuss prior to sending out
-15 Ibuki moxa (stick-on moxa)
-One 10 pack of 800 gaus reusable acu-magnets (able to continue to wear after session and reapply later)
-Two 12,000 gaus reusable magnets (very strong for use only during session)
-20 Pyonex press needles
-20 Ear Press balls with picture reference cards of applicable ear points
-Small Gemstones appropriate for each client (if desired)
-1 Therapeutic Organic Essential Oil infused Epsom Salt packet for soaking
-1 roll of micropore tape for taping magnets and crystals to acu-points

 

We realize this type of treatment may not work for everyone and that is totally okay! We also realize that even if we are able to reopen our doors to the general public- our severely immune-compromised clients maybe not be able to physically come in to the office for fear of catching COVID-19 and therefore they can utilize this type of treatment in the future.

 

If you are interested in this new venture please reach out to us at bostonacupunkture@gmail.com

 

This is going to be new for everyone, including us, and there will be some kinks to work out both via the booking website, getting your your acu-kit in a timely manor and connecting via online in a HIPPA-compliant way, but we look forward to this new journey with you and helping to continue care for our wonderful clients while promoting love, light and healing during this unknown, dark and scary time.

 

Shamanic Energy Healer: Katie Nadeau now hosting weekly office hours at AcuPUNKture!

Katie Nadeau, Shamanic Energy Healer

katie nadeau

What is Shamanic Energy Healing? Explained by Katie:

A shamanic energy healing works to clear blocks in your chakras (energy centers) and fills them with healing, positive energy. Throughout life we hold on to emotions/traumas/limiting beliefs and push them aside without acknowledging or releasing them. These traumas/emotions/limiting beliefs stay within our energy bodies and continue to present themselves until healed. They can resurface as a physical aliment, fatigue, despondency, or many other forms. A shamanic energy healing can aid in clearing blocks from childhood, the present, past lives, and blocks passed down through the lineage all while you lay down and relax. While healing I am in connection with mine and your spirit guides. I use my intuition and their guidance to feel and move through your energy. At times I may also receive messages or information from the Divine, Archangels, and/or ancestors. Each person is unique and ever changing, therefore, each healing will be unique to the person and their energy. If your energy is calling for it I may incorporate different tools (crystals, oils, reiki, etc)  into a healing.  This can be done in person or from a distance. Contact me and we can set up an appointment.

“Kunzite is a powerful healer of the emotional body, particularly for those who have closed themselves off from life, or from others, to protect themselves emotionally. Kunzite opens the heart to the energies of love – love of self, of others, for humanity, plants, animals, the earth and all it contains.”

“Pink Kunzite crystals reflect the Light of the heart and love, and help stimulate the Heart Chakra. The Heart Chakra is located near the center of the breastbone and regulates our interaction with the external world and controls what we embrace and what we resist. It gives us the balancing ability to be ourselves within the environment, and helps in our relationships. Pink crystal energy is used to resolve blockages and to re-balance the heart chakra, helping us understand our own needs and emotions clearly.”
