Acupuncture Orlando in a nutshell - the healing concept, application, benefits and risks

In general terms acupuncture, including acupuncture in Orlando, it is a natural medicine modality that aims at improving health and decreasing pain. This medicine modality has been known for thousands of years and has had many followers ever since. The technique is based on the energetic balance principle; the acupuncturist assesses the energy flow in your body and stimulates carefully identified acupoints - in order to positively influence the flow of energy in the patient's body and hence significantly improve his or her wellbeing. Traditionally, it was performed purely via acupuncture needles that were the stimulants of the acupoints. Today herbs, magnets, lasers and low currents are used to enhance the traditional puncturing technique of acupuncture in Orlando.

Non-invasive body contouring Orlando - more effective than you think!

Author- Dr. Michelle Plummer Published-July 26th 2017

Non-invasive body contouring Orlando is more effective than you think!

Body contouring - including body contouring in Orlando offered by Annshellay Health SPA & Fitness, can be generally referred to as a procedure that alters the shape of the human body. However, it is different to the mainstream methods of cosmetic surgery, which are usually very invasive - involving a lot of post-procedural risk and requiring the patient to meet strict conditions in order to qualify for the treatment. Therefore it is always prudent to look for healthier alternatives. Body contouring techniques, however, can be considered non-invasive. So if you dream of improving your body shape effortlessly and with minimum discomfort - Annshellay’s body contouring in Orlando is for you!


Body contouring Orlando - how does it work?

Annshellay’s body contouring treatments are procedures that eliminate or reduce excess fat in a variety of trouble spots including the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, upper arms and back.

Let’s start with the good news: some doctors say traditional liposuction procedures are rarely performed these days because of the great results of non-invasive body contouring treatments such as body contouring in Orlando. A client should expect their first visit to be a consultation where the physician or nurse will take measurements and assess what the right treatment method would be for the case. When doing body contouring for weight loss the client will undergo painless treatments using radiofrequency to tighten the skin, ultrasonic cavitation which uses sound waves to melt fat and vacuum suction to push and drain the fat and fluids into the lymph nodes after the fat has been broken down. This treatment is gaining popularity because results can be seen in just a few session and the client did not have to go under the knife to achieve it.


Body contouring Orlando - who is it recommended for?

We recommend this particular body contouring procedure especially for patients with fairly small trouble areas, such a fat bulge around the abdomen area. Because the technique is so effective, if only needs to be performed on the fatty, protruding part of the skin. At Annshellay Health SPA & Fitness you will always receive a professional consultation before any treatment commences. We will advise which of the treatments will be the most effective in treating your trouble area. Annshellay Health SPA & Fitness offers several professional non-invasive body contouring treatments including body contouring Orlando, laser lipo Orlando and skin tightening Orlando.


We invite you to get in touch with our friendly and professional staff who will answer your questions and suggest the healthiest body contouring treatments depending on your body type, skin condition and the results you desire.

Acupuncture Pine Hills - if you care about your health this information is for you!


March 15, 2016

Acupuncture Pine Hills - if you care about your health this information is for you!


Acupuncture - including acupuncture in Pine Hills - is a natural medicine therapy known globally and recognized for its positive therapeutic effects. It is an ancient technique of inserting very fine but durable needles into certain points of the body. Such points, called acupoints, are never random - they are carefully mapped throughout the human body. This chinese medicine modality became famous thanks to its pain relieving properties; various somatic and psychological conditions has been proven to be treated with acupuncture - including acupuncture in Pine Hills. Nowadays, acupuncture is the most frequently chosen natural medicine modality because of its efficacy and benign treatment procedure.


Acupuncture in Pine Hills - how does it work?

Traditional Chinese medicine explains acupuncture as a technique for balancing the energy flow or life force that is believed to flow through pathways (called meridians) in your body. Acupuncture - including acupuncture in Pine Hills - is performed by inserting very fine needles into specific, carefully allocated points along these meridians in order to stimulate them. Experienced acupuncture practitioners whom you will find at Annshellay Health Spa and Fitness believe that your energy flow will re-balance if the treatment is performed with due precision and paying attention to minutiae. Gentle but precise puncturing of the acupoints or pressing of the receptors on one’s body (acupressure) unblocks those energetic channels and regulate the energy flow throughout the body.


Acupuncture in Pine Hills - does the treament hurt?

At Annshellay Health Spa and Fitness we care about our patients’ comfort during all therapeutic treatments but we also want our patients to be well informed about procedures, stages of the treatments and the sensations that may accompany particular treatments. Normally, while undergoing acupuncture in Pine Hills, you will not feel any pain or discomfort during the needle insertion, but you may sometimes feel a formication sensation. During one session only 12 needles can be used and an experienced acupuncturist will know the exact acupoints that need to be stimulated and the number of needles that will give optimal results. During an average acupuncture session the needles will stay in your body for 15-30 minutes and it is a time for you to relax, unwind but remain still so the needles can stay in their initial and ideal position for the duration of the treatment.


Acupuncture in Pine Hills - How do I know if it’s right for me?

At Annshellay’s we will always offer a consultation before giving advise about the most effective therapy for your condition. It is important that you provide us with as much information about your condition and symptoms as possible because the right diagnosis determines which acupoints our therapist will focus on during the therapy. Different acupoints play a role in treating different conditions. This is why you should always make sure you inform Annshellay’s professional acupuncturist about any health conditions or issues you may have.

At Annshellay Health Spa and Fitness we combine the renowned accomplishments of chinese natural medicine with achievements of contemporary Western medical sciences and offer you professional approach to acupuncture in Orlando.


2. The word ‘acupuncture’ originates from the late 17th century and derives from Latin acu ‘with a needle’ + panura ‘to puncture’. 


3. Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years with safe and effective results in the treatment of illnesses and pain. The National Institutes of Health and the World Health Organization (WHO) recognizes acupuncture as effective in treating conditions such as: addiction (alcohol, drug, smoking), anxiety, arthritis, asthma, chronic fatigue, depression, fatigue, headache, indigestion, menopause, migraine, pain, PMS, sleep disturbances or stress.


4. Chinese medicines states that there are almost 2,000 acupoints on a body. So far over 400 of these acupoints have been located, identified and described. Before performing acupuncture in Orlando session our experienced acupuncturist will identify the acupoints which are most relevant to your particular illness or condition.

SUGAR and its hidden agenda

March 15, 2016

Females are to only consume 6tsp (24g) of sugar per day and men 9tsp (36g). When looking on a label you will see sugar in grams. To change it from grams to teaspoon all you have to do is divide by 4. For example, vitamin water contains 32g of sugar 32/4 =8tsp. All ready just from one drink you are over the recommended amount of sugar if you are a female. For the people that count calories remember 1 gram of sugar equals 4 calories.

Antioxidants

Author- Dr. Michelle Plummer Published-July 7th 2015

Free radical damage is constantly occurring in the body for various reasons.

A few big reasons oxidation occurs

Excessive sweets

  • Exercise
  • Metabolism
  • Too much sun
  • Smoking
  • Inflammation
  • Environmental pollution and toxins

To make a long story short free radicals are unstable molecules that are highly reactive because it is missing an electron.

It is important to consume antioxidants on a daily basis to prevent and minimize free radical damage in the body. Fruits such as berries and grapes have a lot of antioxidants and can also be energy boosters.


Constantly I am bombarded with people wanting chemical peels, dermabrasion and other services to help achieve a glow or reduce wrinkles. The bottom line is, if lifestyle and eating habits don't change the skin will look bland and have wrinkles from poor lifestyle choices causing free radicals.

Starting today I want to challenge everyone reading this to eat at least 1 cup a day of berries. Antioxidants prevent and/or help conditions such as cancer development, Alzheimers, Autoimmune and degenerative disorders.
