   Hello, my name is Flora Freeauf, I am a licensed acupuncturist and Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner on the North Shore of Kaua'i. Every time I get a call, where a patient tells me they were referred from a friend, I get a little excited, wondering what I might be treating with the new patient. A lot of patients come to me for assisting in infertility, regulating menstrual cycles, reducing PMS and assisting in promoting a healthy birth just before labor. Today we are going to talk about ways to prepare your body for a healthy pregnancy.

   At the time of conception, it is extremely important that both parents are exceptionally healthy. This is very important, as the health of the child directly relates to the health of both parent...

Relax, breath and move in conjunction with your breath as instructed. That's all it takes. Practicing this ancient modality of self care has amazing effects on mental clarity, relaxation relieving stress, anxiety, depression, fatigue, tight muscles, body pains and also helps you become aware of ones that may need to be addressed if they have been ignored. Qi Gong means, using breath and movement to cultivate life force energy. The beauty of it is once you know an exercise well, you can tap in anywhere, anytime. For instance, if you are feeling anxiety, you can step into the bathroom or a closet and do 2 minutes of Qi Gong and you will be greatly relaxed in a matter of moments. These exercises are powerful. I have had so many patients that have w...

An amazing herb I’d like to tell you all about, I call Mountain Marrow

Known by some as “the nectar of the gods,” and by others as “the destroyer of weakness”, Shilajit is an herb that has been used for thousands of years by Buddhists and Sherpa’s as a daily dietary supplement.  It is said to increase stamina, strengthen and detoxify the body while it decalcifies the pineal gland for increased awareness.  This well kept secret has broken the surface of mainstream media where people are wondering, what is this herb and where does it come from?

Well, hidden away deep inside the Himalayan Mountains near Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan, this herb is a mineral substance preserved inside the rock that oozes out of the mountains, looking much like tar seepi...

Aloha, my name is Flora Freeauf L.Ac., Licensed acupuncturist and Chinese Medical Practitioner on the North Shore of Kauai, HI. I'd like to share with you about one of my favorite techniques for treating a variety of conditions from pain to organ disorders, called ear or auricular acupuncture.

The power of auricular acupuncture is quite spectacular. The entire body can be mirrored inside the ear; if you were to imagine an upside down body in the fetal position, the head anatomy is found at the ear lobe and the feet and lower body are found at the top. The neck found in the ear, starts low on the ridge called the scapha and the spine stretches up the ear to the lower back and hips. The organs can all be located in the deeper cavity called the co...

North Shore Kauai Acupuncture, Cupping and More..

-A patient off in the space between awake and asleep-

Here on the North Shore of Kauai there are several practitioners with different styles. Many have told me I'm very good at diagnosing a patient with my fingers, feeling the meridians and the stagnation within it. Following it and then finding a release point or several to free the blockage. Sometimes it can be as simple as glass suction cups massaging the skin and other times people need more. When a muscle has gone into spasm, I first will try to unlock it through distal points away from the sensitive area, as it is likely defensive. When I decide it's the optimal treatment, trigger point can be the one and only thing that will work... and it'...

North Shore Kauai Acupuncture, Cupping and more..

You're lying face down and the practitioner applies a home made herbal anti-inflammatory salve on your back incorporates a little "Chinese Tuina Massage" after she tells you the process of cupping. You can feel the strong suction of the glass to your skin as she removes the flame quickly creating immediate contact. She pulls the cups up and down your back pulling the skin away from the bones with just the right amount of suction. Several cups are placed around an old injury and slowly they start to stack up and before long, your whole back was covered.  It feels like all of this old icky stuff is coming out of the muscles and getting sucked out by the cups, like a octopus massage or some mystical...
