Laurel, Md. – Maryland University of Integrative Health (MUIH) is now offering complimentary virtual acupuncture telehealth visits to Maryland residents. There is always a need for individuals to focus on their health and wellness, and the need is even greater during this pandemic. MUIH is stepping up to address this need by offering free virtual acupuncture telehealth visits.
A typical acupuncture in-person visit includes treatment with needles but there is much more that occurs and these other aspects can be provided via telehealth. Part of the underlying wisdom of traditional Chinese medicine is its focus on self-care and health promotion. MUIH acupuncturists are educated in movement therapy such as qi gong and T’ai chi. They can impart dietary advice, lead people through breathing exercises and body awareness techniques, and some also suggest herbs. Additionally, they can guide clients through self-applied acupressure treatments. The free telehealth services will be provided by MUIH students under the supervision of a licensed practitioner.
Patients who pursue ongoing treatment for maintenance and promotion of good health report: staying well longer and recovering from illness more quickly; improved stamina and vitality; improved capacity to positively influence their health; reductions in long-term health-care costs and less frequent visits to physicians; and deepened and more harmonious relationships with others.
“We are committed to providing the community with uninterrupted care, holistic health tools, and relationship-centered attention to our clients,” said Michelle McNear, Ph.D., Director of the Natural Care Center at MUIH.
