AHT Conquers Harvey’s 5K in Downtown St. Pete

Acupuncture & Herbal Therapies’ Acupuncture Physicians, Massage Therapists, staff and friends conquered the Harvey’s 5K on Thursday, March 21st, a run held annually by the St. Petersburg Suncoasters benefitting the arts and music programs in Pinellas County schools.

You will usually find Sara Smiley biking or training for a half marathon, Adam Bailey practicing Kung Fu or Qigong, and Val Mirea swimming in open water or practicing Qigong, but all convened on Thursday evening to kick off the Honda Grand Prix festivities.

The 3.1 mile course weaved through the Downtown St. Pete area, beginning and ending at North Straub Park. For several at Acupuncture & Herbal Therapies, it was their first official race and for others, it was their first running experience, but all made an impressive effort. Four staff members even finished under 30 minutes. Keep an eye out for Acupuncture & Herbal Therapies members – running is addictive. This won’t be the last race!

Shonishin Pediatric Clinic Now Available

Acupuncture and Herbal Therapies window

Shonishin is now offered at Acupuncture & Herbal Therapies!

Join us for a FREE lecture on Thursday, December 20, 2012 from 6-7pm – Introducing Shonishin Pediatrics.

Once a month on Saturdays, Sara Smiley, AP, DOM will be offering a Shonishin Pediatric Clinic. Shonishin was developed over 250 years ago in Japan as a needleless technique used to treat children. This technique uses a series of special tools to stimulate acupuncture points and meridians by gently stroking, rubbing and tapping your child’s skin.

In general, Shonishin helps to maintain bodily balance and boost your child’s immune system. More specifically, Shonishin can help to treat:

Allergies and asthma
Coughs and colds
Eczema and other skin conditions
Ear infections- chronic and acute
Night terrors and bedwetting
Attention Deficit Disorder
Indigestion, constipation and diarrhea
Getting sick frequently
Failure to thrive
Colic and crying at night
And more!

The frequency, dose and strength of each treatment will depend on the age and general health of your child. The treatment itself is typically brief, lasting from approximately three to twenty minutes. Generally speaking, however, the older the child, the longer the treatment will take.

Shonishin is a safe and effective technique to restore balance and keep your child feeling healthy and happy! Children from infancy to age 10 are the best candidates for treatment.

The clinic will be offered Saturday’s from 10 am to 4 pm on the following dates:
December 22, 2012
January 19, 2013
February 23, 2013

Treatments on Shonishin Clinic Day cost $40 for a 25 minute treatment. Call 727-551-0857 to make your appointment today! Walk-in patients are also welcome.
