What does Acupuncture treatment feel like at Palos

PalosHills-Painful back

Acupuncture treats mind, body, heart, and spirit.

Acupuncture is performed by inserting very thin, disposable, sterilized, stainless-steel filaments into specific points located near or on the surface of the skin. Most patients report a feeling of calm and often fall asleep during treatment. After the first session, most people feel less pain, increased mobility, and sense of calmness.

Acupuncture is an effective technique that promotes natural healing and helps to re-establish the proper functioning of the body. It can enhance recuperative power and immunity, support physical and emotional health and improve overall well being.

Further Healing Methods Used by Ausra

Through her experience, Ausra came to recognize the vital energy inherent in all beings and that by activating and facilitating this flow of energy, the body’s ability to heal naturally is accelerated.

With further study and training in energy healing and dedicated practice in meditation, Ausra developed subtle energy cultivation. Using modalities such as Qi Gong, Reiki, Matrix Energetics and Chakra Balancing in conjunction with Traditional Oriental Medicine, Ausra is able to efficiently address all aspects of an individual’s health: body, mind and spirit.

Chinese Herbs


Chinese herbal for better health and healing…

Chinese herbs are as effective now as they were 2000 years ago. Herbs are mixed in combination to address the specific needs of each patient and to treat a wide variety of symptoms while stimulating body’s natural healing process.

Moxibustion – a form of heat therapy using therapeutic herb Artemesia vulgaris (mugwort), to warm the body, to nourish and move the blood and qi.

Cupping – specialized therapy to aid the body in increasing blood circulation, releasing stagnant Qi, alleviating pain and removing metabolic toxins from surface tissue.

Gua Sha – is a technique that involves stimulating the skin surface using a smooth – edged instrument. It is used to promote blood circulation, relax muscles and alleviate acute respiratory illness.

Chinese Medicine Origins

PalosChiropractic-FamilyexhaltingonbeachTraditional Chinese Medicine originated thousands of years ago through meticulous observation of nature, cosmos and human body. It is based on the concept of vital energy called Qi (pronounced ‘chee’), that flows through all tings.In the human body, Qi flows along the pathways, called meridians which can be compared to water flowing in the river. Any disturbance in the smooth and harmonious flow of Qi can result inillness or pain. The focus in Chinese Medicine is to correct the imbalances by clearing the obstruction and enhancing the harmonious flow of Qi, which promotes body’s natural ability to heal itself.

Energy Healing

Energy healing is a form of holistic medicine in which energy of life force from universe is used to adjust or balance the human energy fields. By means of energy work, an individual also becomes more in tune with physical body, gains mind clarity and heightened awareness. Methods used during energy healing session are: Qi Gong, Reiki, Chakra balancing and Matrix Energetics.

Acupuncture Testimonials

Couldn’t Turn Neck

Ausra, my acupuncture, has given me my life back. I have suffered from pain due to herniated disc for over ten years. I have tried everything: physical therapy, epidural shots and massage therapy. I would get some relief but the pain would come back. On my first acupuncture visit, I walked in unable to turn my head to the left side. Also, my finger on the left hand was numb. In one visit, I could turn my neck. I was amazed. That first visit was something I have never experienced. After few more treatments numbness in the finger was gone as well.

Ausra is very good at what she does. She takes time to listen. She is always on time. She is such an amazing person. Because of my pain, I was depressed; I am feeling so much better now. If you experience one visit with Ausra, You will be amazed and will want to continue. I can promise you that.

Chronic Shoulder Pain

After being physically assaulted almost 14 years ago my shoulder pain has slowly gotten worse, becoming chronic in June 2011. Cortisone injections and physical therapy abruptly stopped providing any relief. The pain disrupted every aspect of my life: sleeping, showering, and even carrying a cup of coffee! MRI’s showed that I have tendonitis, bone spurs, a slight tendon tear in my left shoulder and bursitis in my right shoulder. Due to severity of tendonitis and bursitis surgery was not recommended as it would further aggravate this condition. Specialists all agreed that medication and limited mobility for my pain management was now my only option.

A friend recommended I try acupuncture, I thought ACUPUNCTURE!? no way. But the pain got so bad I was willing to try anything. Thankfully I did! After three sessions I am now on NO pain medication and when any soreness arises Ausra taught me a breathing technique that relieves my pain within seconds.

Recovering from Cancer

I started acupuncture treatments when I was recovering from ovarian cancer/chemo. The reason that pushed me to go was because the doctors did not think I would ever be able to have children because my hormones were going into menopause. They said acupuncture may be my only option. I started seeing Ausra twice a week for about 2-3 months. I also took the Chinese herbs she prescribed. About 3 months in, I got my period – something the doctors didn’t think could happen. I credit this to lots of prayer and acupuncture.Since then I have been going almost weekly to maintain good health and calm my anxiety.

Ausra has been very patient with me and has listened to my fears numerous times. She’s not just an acupuncturist, that’s for sure. I highly, highly recommend acupuncture and have been so thankful for Ausra and her expertise. It has greatly influenced my life. That sounds over the top, but it is the honest truth of how great my experience has been.

Throat Issue

I had been to many medical Dr’s for the issues related to the lump-like feeling in my throat. I had been put through many tests and was prescribed medications with no results and this caused additional stress that made my throat condition even worse.

In July of 2010, i developed a jaw/face pain and tension. Once again, i had gone to various Dr’s and they were not able to figure out the root cause of my problem. My problems still weren’t resolved and this is when i decided to try acupuncture for the first time.

After a few treatments by Ausra, it was becoming apparent that the acupuncture, the energy work, along with the dietary advice was working. With every subsequent session, i was feeling better and i knew that i could only attribute this to Ausra’s expertise and patience. Ausra was able to get to the root cause of my problem by combining different acupunture points, performing energy work, prescribing herbs and taking lots of time to ask me the right questions.Show More

She was ultimately able to determine that my throat problem was the result of Qi (energy) stagnation in my throat due to the phlegm and the face/jaw issue was related to clenching, something that i would do during the day because of the stress and was wasn’t even aware of it. Ausra has made some wonderful suggestions with the regards to other aspects of my health, such as exercises you can do at home, when you experience anxiety or can’t fall asleep.

The other thing that i really appreciate about Ausra is that she will go an extra mile to help you, because she truly and genuinely cares about her patients. I have come to see her not only as my acupuncturist, but as a friend, who has helped me out greatly. If it wasn’t for her, i would still be taking medications, that i didnt relly need and i would be still suffering from depression and other problems. Ausra is great at what she does and i would certainly recommend her to anyone.”

I had a miracle!

Ausra is a super acupuncturist and a magical energy healer. My whole family is very thankful to her for the miracles she did on me.

I have a long history of painful periods which are believed to be caused by endometriosis. Sometimes the pain would last for 24 hours even on strong painkillers. One time the pain started while I was at work and it was getting worse, I knew I had to do something. I called Ausra because I heard that she can do distant healing. She asked me to lie down and breathe deeply. A few minutes after we hung up I felt energy running through my body and it felt very relaxing. Then a very soothing feeling landed on my chest and I started falling asleep. Twenty minutes later when she called me back the pain was gone. I was completely blown away.Show More

This past December I went to the hospital with terrible pain in my pelvis. Even before receiving ultrasound results the doctor said that I had a big tender cyst and scheduled a surgery to remove it. The cyst turned out to be 6 cm in diameter, but I was trying to avoid the surgery at any cost. Two days later, after the stress went down, I scheduled an appointment with Ausra. In the course of one month she treated me using acupuncture, energy work, moxa and prescribed some Chinese herbs. The pain went away after only two meetings with her and at the end of the month the cyst was gone. Looking at the ultrasound my doctor could not believe the results. She said she was sure I would be coming back with an even bigger cyst and that we would need to do the surgery.

I continue seeing Ausra regularly for overall balance. I have so much hope and faith in her healing powers. I am recommending her to all my girlfriends.
