Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique® (NAET®)

The brain provides warnings to the body whenever blockages occur within the energy pathways. These warnings include illness, pain, inflammation, fever, heart attacks, strokes, abnormal growths, tumors, and various physical, physiological and psychological discomforts. If the symptoms are minor, blockages are minor. If the symptoms are major, blockages are major.

Once identified, minor blockages can be unblocked easily. Major blockages may take more treatments to unblock. Dr. Nambudripad's discovery, NAETĀ®, is an innovative and completely natural method for regaining better health with often permanent freedom from allergies and the diseases arising from those allergens.

In order for your treatment to be most effective, you may be "cleared" of a series of food allergens (protein, dairy, gluten and wheat, sugar, etc.) in a specific order before another specific allergen is addressed. Once your body's energy is restored when exposed to a particular allergen, you will likely not react to that allergen again. This is great news for individuals with life-threatening or lifestyle-altering allergies (e.g., gluten intolerance, peanut allergies, chemical allergies, environmental allergies, etc.)

All Acupuncture Associates of Maine practitioners
are skilled in Nambudripad Allergy Elimination Technique® (NAET®), which identifies and eliminates allergies to food,
animals, environmental compounds and chemicals.

Acupressure is an ancient healing art using the fingers to skillfully press key points, which stimulate the body's natural self-curative abilities. When these trigger points are pressed, they release muscular tension, and promote circulation of blood, and the body's life force energy to aid healing. Acupuncture and acupressure use the same pressure points and meridians, but acupuncture employs needles, while acupressure uses gentle to firm pressure.

As mentioned above, acupressure is an ideal solution for the treatment of children and others who may be uncomfortable around needles.

Chinese Herbology

The art of using of herbs to heal ailments of the skin and body was developed in ancient China concurrently with acupuncture. There are certain illnesses in which treatment by acupuncture is indicated, others in which Chinese Herbology is indicated, and a third segment in which a combination of treatments is most effective. Your acupuncturist may "prescribe" the use of herbs during your visit to assist in your healing and wellness.
