Acupuncture sessions are an incredible way to heal yourself through many conditions. They are also a great path for “tuning up” your body, even when not faced with a particular condition. At the Oneida Holistic Health Center we make acupuncture affordable for you. You can come as often as you need to feel better at Community Acupuncture. Community Acupuncture is a small group setting. Dr. Miller uses acupuncture points below the knees and elbows. So just roll up your sleeves and pant legs and enjoy! The treatment room is peaceful, warm and very relaxing.

When we think of needing to shed some pounds we tend to automatically think “diet”. Diets can end up being only a temporary fix. Too often the weight returns and we find ourselves back at the beginning of our weight-loss journey. It can be a frustrating and disappointing struggle but wellness is always worth the effort! Don’t give up! YOU are worth it. There are Holistic Approaches that you can use to facilitate your weight loss goals and keep the weight off after you have achieved those goals. At the Oneida Holistic Health Center, our dedicated practitioners can help you on your journey to wellness.
Massage can make you feel relaxed and help alleviate stresses that often lead to binge eating. Did you know that it can aid in achieving your weight loss goals? Research has proven that massage can have a positive effect on muscle-building and fitness levels, which in turn increases your capacity to control or lose weight.
Acupuncture is also another proven aid for weight loss. According to a recent article in acufinder.com “We know that acupuncture needles inserted into specific points on the body and in the ear release endorphins which have a calming and relaxing effect that makes it easier to deal with stress, frustration and anxiety that can trigger overeating and bingeing on fattening foods. Also endorphins affect the digestive and hormonal systems so acupuncture can help rebalance the organ systems that are running too fast- or in this case too slow—i.e., the metabolism and the will power.”
Reiki is one way to achieve your weight loss goals. According to an article on Livestrong.com, ”When your body holds onto unhealthy weight, it often reflects stale or excess energy that you no longer need to carry with you. Using a few simple Reiki healing techniques, you can clear the two chakras or energy centers that relate to overeating and emotional baggage, offering yourself a firmer foundation for long-term healthy weight loss.
A Life Coach can work with you to develop the tools you need so you can handle life changes, and stress so you can achieve your healthy goals.If your actions are not supporting your goal to lose weight, you may find the support you need with a Life Coach. Our Life Coach is also a Meditation Instructor and can help you learn to stop, relax and then move on in the moment without going back to destructive eating habits.
Our Skin Care Therapist can help you keep your skin healthy and looking great during and after your weight loss journey. After all,one reason people want to lose weight is to feel more at home in their body. You want healthy, toned skin to improve your overall appearance and to show off your new body. Many people experience problems with their skin’s condition and elasticity during and especially following weight loss.
All of our dedicated Holistic Practitioners are available to answer your questions about weight loss techniques. Please feel free to call us at 860-467-6518.
