Illuminating the path to wellness
“A journey of a thousand miles
begins with a single step”
- Lao Tzu
Big Sun Acupuncture is a holistic health clinic nestled at the foot of the Black Hills in Rapid City, South Dakota.
We believe your body is your temple and we take great care to nurture and care for it as the sacred vessel that it is. Our highest priority is compassionate patient centered care - That means that we meet patients and clients where they are on their journeys, and help them identify and reach their own health goals. You set the destination, we help you get there.
Too often people think of Acupuncture and other complementary and alternative medicine practices too exotic, too expensive, and too risky of an investment (especially if you have been down many unfruitful roads before).
At Big Sun Acupuncture, we work to debunk these myths by offering:
* high quality, effective treatments performed by a nationally board certified practitioner *
* sliding scale fees options for those who qualify *
* an opportunity to ask questions before making a commitment *
* easy-to-understand answers to your questions (no big medical terms to decipher) *
* an opportunity to take an active role in your healing journey (you set the destination and the pace) *
Are you ready for something different?
The most well known of all East Asian Medicine practices, acupuncture involves the insertion of solid, very fine needles into the body at strategic "acu-points" to promote optimal Qi (pronounced "chee") movement. The "acu-points" are often located on or between meridians/channels which are like rivers and streams where Qi flows. By stimulating these points, the body is able to divert Qi from places of "excess" or "stagnation" to places of "deficiency", thus creating balance within the body's energetic/bio-electrical system.
Esoteric Acupuncture helps to align with higher energetic frequencies in order to bring into being a more heart centered approach to life and living. This unlocks potentials beyond a healthy body -- leading people to actualize their higher purpose, find deeper connections within themselves and their relationships with others, reach higher planes of consciousness, and live a more spiritually centered life. This is a system for those seeking wellness beyond the absence of dis-ease.
ASIAN BODYWORK THERAPY
ABT encompasses many modalities of manual therapy. At Big Sun Acupuncture, we primarily use:
acupressure: pressure to stimulate "acu-points"
cupping: suction on the skin to promote circulation of Qi + blood
gua sha: using friction or "scraping"
therapeutic movement: active + passive
Tui'Na: Chinese manual therapy that involves rocking, shaking, vibrating, patting + stretching
Consultations are available both in-person and via secure virtual platform. Offerings include:
lifestyle + dietary guidance
customized movement therapy routines
self-care + acupressure guidance
Consultations are also great for asking questions and identifying which treatment modality is best suited for a specific condition.
