Essential Health Acupuncture Rauchelle Meschke Dipl.Ac Alyse Kern Dipl.OM

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture Therapies for your health and wellness. Experience the beauty of balance. Rauchelle Meschke, MAOM, Dipl.Ac., L.Ac. Alyse Meyers, MAOM, Dipl.OM, L.Ac.

Many Disciplines. One Patient. In the spirit of Traditional Chinese Medicine, a primary goal of Essential Health Acupuncture is to provide my patients with a broader understanding of health and a more lasting sense of well-being. Instead of a disease-centered focus, Traditional Chinese Medicine applies a patient-centered approach that addresses the whole person rather than simply his/her symtoms. Essential Health Acupuncture combines the disciplines of modern science with the wisdoms of ancient healing and takes advantage of the knowledge of several therapies including; acupuncture, tui na, cupping, diet/nutrition guidance, Chinese herbology along with physical, mental and emotional health. Other medical modalities, that are being utilized, are also taken into account to provide the utmost care for an individual. What this means is that patient and provider work together to develop an integrated diagnostic and therapeutic plan that will best address the whole patient.

Thank you to all the Veterans for their service. We have had the great pleasure to get to know you and to help you over the years!

John Bellaimey explains why we all cont...

#Yinyang Yin and Yang is as the fundamental categories of all phenomena.

In medicine, the concepts of Yin and Yang are generally used to categorize both anatomic parts and physiologic functions. For example, the back is Yang and the abdomen is Yin; the six bowels are Yang and the five viscera are Yin; Qi is yang and blood is Yin; agitation is Yang and depression is Yin. Similarly, diseases may be categorized according to Yin and Yang. @lilianrochareal

Well now, this is a great step forward! I do have to clarify that this is in the early stages, study research only! So that means maybe in the next year or two actual coverage will be offered!

National Coverage Analysis (NCA) Tracking Sheet for Acupuncture for Chronic Low Back Pain (CAG-00452N)

This is information in support of Medicare Coverage that will be decided on in October 2019 for Acupuncture Coverage. Take a moment and read the proposal and make a comment by following the link provided. We are in very exciting times. Acupuncture is gaining more and more well deserved popularity and mainstream acceptance. Expanded coverage through Medicare and insurance can make acupuncture more accessible to more people. But to make this a reality we need to make our voices heard. We have an opportunity to do just that! The process of this potential change begins with a "30 day public comment period' where we have the chance to show how many people are wanting coverage for their acupuncture treatments.

Please go to the link below and show your support for acupuncture coverage.

Some suggestions for comments by patients:
1.You can leave a comment by telling your story of how acupuncture treatment by a licensed acupuncturist has helped relieve your pain.
2.You can leave a comment stating that the total cost of acupuncture by a licensed acupuncturist is much less than current conventional treatment which is covered by your insurance.
3.You can simply say that acupuncture treatment helped you and you support Medicare coverage. Use this page to view the details for the National Coverage Analysis (NCA) Tracking Sheet for Acupuncture for Chronic Low Back Pain (CAG-00452N)

ROSEHIP (Rosa rubiginosa) The Gentle Powerhouse.
Rosehip oil is nourishing, restorative, clarifying and brightening. The astringent quality of Rosehip oil enables it to deeply penetrate the skin, carrying along with it vitamins, essential fatty acids, and antioxidants. Gamma-linolenic acid protects the skin against environmental stressors. Vitamins A and C brighten and clear the complexion. Antioxidants lycopene and phytosterals help to restore devitalized skin and lock in moisture. Rosehip seed oil absorbs easily, leaving skin moist and balanced without an oily finish.
