with the Penny George™ Institute for Health and Healing, Piper Breast Center
offers aromatherapy, acupuncture and guided imagery services.
Acupuncture is the insertion of very thin, sterile needles into specific points on your body. Part of an ancient medical system called Traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncture stimulates the bodies natural healing mechanisms and promotes well-being.
Aromatherapy uses essential oils to maintain and restore
health. The essential oils are taken from specific plants known for their
abilities to provide health benefits. At Piper Breast Center, we use lavender
for anxiety, stress, insomnia and pain. It can help you relax.
Guided imagery uses words and images to help move your
attention away from worry, stress and pain, and help you find your own inner
strength and creativity to support healing. It can have a positive effect on
heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and oxygen rates, brain waves,
temperature and hormone balance.
Talk to your care provider at Piper Breast Center if you feel you could benefit from these services.
