1. What is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture is the science of the body's own healing by self-balancing energy.

2. How does it work?

Acupuncture maintains the flow of energy or "Qi" (chi) through your body. To function, our bodies need a power supply or abundant and free flowing Qi. This life force is invisible like electricity and flows in a distribution network called meridians. Acupuncture and other gentle energy based techniques can help you prevent or reverse acute/chronic health conditions, especially those aggravated or caused by stress.

3. Does it hurt?

Sheryl practices Japanese style and uses extremely fine needles, similar to a cat’s whisker. Some clients feel a “mosquito bite” sensation; others feel nothing during needle insertion. Any discomfort associated with the insertion of a needle is usually due to the release of blocked Qi energy, similar to lifting a relief valve. Sometimes at the point of insertion there may be an "achy" sensation or “warm” sensation as your energy is balancing.

4. Are there other methods that do not involve needles?

Yes, many options and alternatives are available. Sheryl uses special techniques and tools made from wood, metal, horn, and stone. She also includes magnets, colored and far infrared light therapies, and a bio-energetic foot detoxifying technique.

5. How do I check my Qi?

Check how you feel. Aches and pains? Headaches or allergies? Cold or hot spots? Heartburn or anxiety? Insomnia, depression or lethargy? If you have symptoms, your body is asking for an energy tune-up.

6. I feel good, how could acupuncture help me?

Acupuncture provides an energetic nudge to support and maintain balance at your physical, emotional and mental levels. It helps you stay in "your zone" during major life events and changes such as: weddings, vacations, loss of loved ones, and the day- to- day hurdles. It can also assist in dental procedures, minor surgeries, changing of seasons and new assignments by preparing you at the body, mind and spirit level before the event and helps restore energetic pathways following the event. Facial rejuvenation, or cosmetic acupuncture, is a natural approach to help tone your face and neck.

7. Does Acupuncture really work?

Yes, acupuncture has been used successfully for centuries. Familiarity with this ancient art/science is growing in the United States as people get results. Many people have symptoms that many be addressed separately in the western medical model, the relationships of the same symptoms using the five-element theory of acupuncture can give a client valuable insight on the possible “root cause” and a path to return their systems to balance and health. Sheryl has used Kirlian photography to evaluate and monitor clients as more quantitative evidence of the body’s ability to balance energetically. Kirlian photography reveals the invisible energy field that surrounds the body and is a tangible map of progress with treatment.

8. What does the acupuncturist do?

Sheryl is an energetic troubleshooter, checking various locations on your body: abdomen, pulse, tongue and spots on energetic pathways. Using physical results combined with signs and symptoms, she develops a unique treatment plan for you and then uses gentle meridian therapy tools, colored light and/or needles to encourage your energy to balance returning you to "your zone".

9. What is a session like?

Every session is unique. Sheryl respects the individual's potential and combines acupuncture point stimulation with Shamballa, Reiki or Cranial Sacral Therapy during the typical hour session. This enhances the therapeutic effect and honors the client.

10. What is Sheryl Wookey's Philosophy?

Sheryl's role is to help facilitate the process of your journey to wellness, by empowering you where you are now. In youth, our energy is abundant. As we move into adulthood, the energy once used in development now deals with a constant challenge to remain balanced, dealing with the stressors of day to day living in the modern world. My role in facilitating healing is to help balance your energy and help the body relax. When relaxed, you are better able to focus energy on healing.
