Acupuncture is a part of Oriental medicine (synonymous with traditional Chinese medicine) which originated many thousands of years ago in China. Acupuncture involves the insertion of hair thin, solid, single-use, sterile, stainless steel needles into certain points on the body. The insertion of the needle involves very little, if any pain and treatments are usually very relaxing. A patient sits or lays with the needles in for approximately 20-30 minutes. Other treatment methods that are part of Oriental medicine include: tuina (Chinese massage), cupping and guasha (scraping or suction techniques that increase circulation and can provide pain relief), moxibustion (heat therapy), diet and lifestyle counseling and traditional Chinese herbal therapy. Acupuncture and Oriental medicine can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions. The World Health Organization publishes a list of diseases and disorders that acupuncture has been shown to treat.

The Circle of Life Health and Wellness Coach can choose to work with individuals, families, groups, businesses or specialized populations using a process to assist participants to create a path for moving forward to self empowerment, self discovery and living to one’s potential through self-care. Research has proven that people who take good care of themselves, create health, wealth, love and life satisfaction, even during the most tremendous life changing times and events.

Studies have revealed that 60-90 percent of all medical visits are for stress-related problems and could be eliminated if patients had the skills and strategies to heal and recover. The Circle of Life coaching process is an effective tool to improve and change negative patterns in individuals, families, work environments and communities by encompassing all twelve aspects of one’s circle of life which includes exercise, nutrition, stress mastery, relationships, finances, work, play, health care, environment, life purpose, self esteem and spirituality.

If you are feeling overwhelmed, exhausted, missing joy and peace, or stuck with one particular challenge or area of your life, the Circle of Life coaching process will support you in taking action to achieve lifelong positive results.
