Traditional Chinese medicine is a powerful healing modality that originated in China over 6000 years ago.
Acupuncture, one aspect of Chinese medicine, is used effectively throughout the world, alone or in conjunction with nutritional
counseling and herbal medicine. It is based on the concept of balance and harmony among both physical and emotional
aspects of a human being. The art of acupuncture involves the stimulation of specific points located along channels which
traverse the entire body. These are gateways through which the practitioner exerts influence upon organs and functions, stimulating
and activating the body's self-healing mechanism. If one part of the whole is out of balance, this can result in disharmony
in apparently unrelated parts of the body. When patterns of disharmony occur, illness is evident. The great strength of acupuncture
and herbal medicine is their unique ability to maintain and/or restore the critical balance.
All recent treatments and recommendations from your Western healthcare providers will be discussed and
considered in determining a diagnosis and plan of treatment. We will then proceed with your acupuncture treatment using high-grade,
extremely fine, pre-sterilized, disposable needles.
Aromatherapy is one of the oldest methods of healing and is considered to be mankind's earliest medicine.
The earliest written records of essential oil use in China dates back over 6000 years, and of course, the Egyptians
were avid users of these precious oils in their daily care, as well as in their sacred rites and rituals. Therapeutic Grade A essential oils have a profound effect on our systems, promoting healing of body, mind, and spirit.
At Hudson Healing Arts, we offer a variety of treatments. They include:

Bach Flower Essences
Bach Flower Essences are a system of natural healing developed by the noted physician, bacteriologist,
and immunologist, Dr. Edward Bach in the 1930's. Composed of 38 plant and flower based formulas, plus the well known stress
relief formula Rescue Remedy, they can help manage the emotional demands of everyday life by bringing negative feelings and
attitudes back into balance and perspective. The essences are safe, non-toxic, and FDA approved. They are a wonderful complement
to many types of therapeutic treatment and will not interact with or interfere with medication, supplements, or food. The
system is suitable for adults, infants, and children, as well as animals.
A typical consultation lasts an hour and includes a thorough intake of the client's emotional state, life
challenges, problems, and personality type. Based upon this information, a personal formula of up to 7 essences is then suggested
for the client.
Craniosacral therapy is a gentle method of correction that encourages our natural healing mechanisms to
dissipate the negative effects of stress on the central nervous system. Preventively, it can benefit overall health and improve
resistance to disease.
The field of Energy Therapy, while new to the Western world, has its roots in the meridian system, mapped
out by the Chinese over 4000 years ago. While empirical evidence is still in its infancy, there are numerous studies offering
evidence of subtle energy flows that anticipate both illness and healing. The benefits of this treatment include: highly
portable techniques that are easy for the client to learn, a focus on self therapy, and rapid results that are sustained over
time. Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) and Thought Field Therapy (TFT) are two of the many branches of this treatment. They
balance the energy system through a tapping proceedure, designed to stimulate the desired meridians (energy pathways) and
corresponding thought patterns.

The origins of herbal medicine stretch back several thousand years to the beginnings of civilization.
All world cultures have their own distinct form and rich history of practicing this art and science. There are, however, common
principles and parallels that can be drawn from tradition to tradition. At Hudson Healing Arts, our herbalists are extensively
trained and board certified in Chinese Herbal Medicine and Western Herbology. The methods employed are extraordinarily safe
and highly efficacious in helping patients reach their maximum health potential.
Hypnosis is rapidly emerging as a highly effective science in problem solving and can be beneficial in
many cases as a therapy in itself. It works on a subconscious level and is regarded as a superb system of stress management.
Hypnosis can be used to reduce stress levels, change patterns of behavior, improve self-esteem, improve athletic performance,
address weight loss and smoking cessation, support the immune system, and provides a beneficial adjunct treatment for persons
living with illness.
Massage is not only a way to relax the body, but also a way to aid healing the mind and spirit. At Hudson
Healing Arts, we offer many forms of massage including:
* Swedish Massage - focuses
on client relaxation using broad flowing strokes of varying pressure, stroking,
gentle squeezing, compression,
lifting, tapping, and vibration to help relax muscles and calm the nervous
system. This type of
massage therapy is especially good for stress reduction, increased circulation, stress and
insomnia, and general relaxation.
* Deep Tissue Massage - is an advanced form of Swedish Massage using more focused pressure to deeper layers
of muscles. Deep tissue
massage helps very tense, knotted muscles to relax.
* Hot Stone Massage - incorporates
riverbed stones of various sizes that are heated to 125 degrees. The stones
are placed on the body,
as well as held in the therapist's palms during the massage session. The soothing heat
warms muscle tissue
quickly, providing both deeper penetration and relaxation. Hot stone massage is
excellent for sore,
achy muscles, and for those who wish to relax very deeply.
Reiki is an ancient form of energy medicine that brings the life force energy, known as Chi, Ki, or Prana,
into connection with the body's innate healing powers. Rediscovered by Dr. Mikao Usui, a Japanese monk educator, in the mid-1800's,
the origins of Reiki are found in the Tibetan Sutra, the ancient records of philosophy and cosmology. Reiki is a powerful
adjunct to many conventional therapeutic modalities, and helps to restore balance on emotional, mental, and physical levels
by enhancing and accelerating the normal healing processes of the mind and body.
