With an undergraduate degree in Athletic Training, from Purdue University, Carleen has worked with athletic injuries in various sports.

"Acupuncture Promotes Natural Healing and Balance"

Acupuncture in New Jersey

Acupuncture, rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine, has a rich history dating back thousands of years. In the United States, it is commonly used as an alternative or complementary approach to healthcare. While not considered a primary treatment for medical conditions, acupuncture can be the key to achieving optimal health and wellness.

The Essence of Acupuncture

The essence of acupuncture lies in balancing the flow of Qi, the life force, through meridians or pathways in the body. These meridians can be likened to highways, starting in the hands or feet and extending throughout the body. By using acupuncture points as gateways, the flow of energy is brought back into balance, promoting healing and well-being.

Carleen’s acupuncture services are offered in a personalized and private room setting. During the initial consultation, lasting one hour, a treatment is administered. Subsequent follow-up sessions, which last 45 minutes, continue to focus on the individual’s unique needs and progress.

For those seeking accessible and affordable treatment, Carleen also offers Group Acupuncture sessions. The collective energetic field established in a group setting enhances the effectiveness of treatments. Whether it’s auricular acupuncture for anxiety, emotional eating, or smoking cessation, or body and scalp acupuncture for wellness and pain relief, these group sessions provide a supportive environment for healing and balance.

At Body Positive Works, we understand that every person’s journey to health is unique. With Carleen’s expertise, compassionate care, and a commitment to integrating Eastern and Western approaches, our acupuncture services go beyond symptom relief to foster a holistic sense of well-being.

Understanding Acupuncture: A Simple Guide to Its Benefits and How It Works

Acupuncture is a healing method from Traditional Chinese Medicine. It’s thought that when the body’s energy, or qi, gets blocked, it can cause health problems. Acupuncturists put thin needles into special spots on the body to fix the energy flow and help you heal and relax.

Acupuncture might work by making the body release endorphins, which are chemicals that reduce pain. It could also affect the nervous system, which controls breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure.

People use acupuncture for many health issues like anxiety, arthritis, pain, depression, sleep problems, headaches, nausea, stress, and even skin problems. While some people might feel a bit of pain when the needles go in, it’s usually not too bad. Acupuncture is safe when done by a trained person, but like all treatments, it can sometimes have side effects.

Mostly, acupuncture helps balance the body’s energy and can make you feel better. If you have pain or other health troubles, you might want to try it. Just talk to your doctor first to see if it’s a good idea for you.
