Traditional Chinese medicine begins with the concept of vital energy: the life force, called qi ("chee"). Qi flows through the body in specific channels, called meridians.
When Qi is out of balance, pain and other symptoms of ill-health and disease can develop.
The goal of traditional Chinese medicine is to balance the body's qi. The harmonious flow of qi restores health, increases vitality and enhances the ability to resist disease.
At The Birch Center for Health, both Melissa and David Sokulski are licensed to practice acupuncture by the Pennsylvania Board of Medicine. They each hold masters degrees in acupuncture from the New England School of Acupuncture, the oldest acupuncture school in the country, and both also studied Chinese Herbal Medicine there.
Acupuncture treats a variety of health conditions including (but not limited to) fibromyalgia, digestive complaints, PMS, menopausal symptoms, pain, colds and flu, and mental disorders such as depression and anxiety. Acupuncture can also greatly help with weight loss and aid people to stop smoking.
At the Birch Center, we also offer techniques such as cupping, gwa sha, massage and moxibustion. We offer the popular Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture, in which David was trained at the New England School of Acupuncture.
