& Eastern Medical Arts
It is All About Healthy Blood Flow
According to eastern medical theory, stagnant blood produces pain, restriction, and disease. Most simply put, the Seitai Shinpo Japanese Structural acupuncture practiced at Good Hearth Eastern Medical Arts is about nourishing and moving healthy blood throughout the body to restore and maintain health.
Without soft-tissue restrictions, the bones can move freely in their proper locations, circulation and nerve impulses flow in a more balanced manner, and the immune and endocrine systems function at their peak. Furthermore, the proper spinal alignment that results from continued treatment creates space in the body cavity for the organs to function properly.
Each treatment focuses on acupuncture points along the spine that have been biomedically proven to relate to nervous system control of the major organs. By shifting the body-mind from the “flight or fight” or sympathetic mode to the “rest and digest” parasympathetic mode, Setai Shinpo allows the internal organs to heal.
Chinese herbal formulas, massage, and other manual therapies (cupping, gua sha, Sotai Ho), as well as nutritional and lifestyle counseling are also available at Good Hearth.
Tobey's Mission: To help you rediscover what it feels like to move freely without pain and to know that your body is built to heal itself.
I had an fantastic experience with Tobey who eliminated a chronic back pain issue in just a couple of treatments. Tobey is both professional and pleasant with excellent beside manner. I felt very comfortable in addition to his expert skills in structural alignment work. There aren't many acupuncture treatments that go as in-depth as Seitai Shinpo acupuncture. Beautiful!!
