Acupressure

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

by Dr. Martin Orimenko – Live Well Holistic Health Center, Ardmore PA

Acupressure and acupuncture are ancient natural healing methods that have been around for more than two thousand years. These natural modalities are based on the idea that stimulation of specific points on the surface of the body stimulates the flow of vital energy which moves through our bodies along pathways known as ‘meridians’, separate from the nerve pathways. This vital energy keeps us healthy and balanced. The acupuncture points occur along these meridian pathways which course through our bodies from head to toe, dipping in and back out of the vital organs, and affecting every physiological function.

Acupressure and acupuncture have been effective treatment modalities for thousands of people seeking an alternative and natural treatment, especially when the modalities they were trying previously were either not working or were to invasive or dangerous, such as surgery. The way acupressure and acupuncture works according to traditional Chinese doctors is that the stimulation of select pressure points on the body “moves stagnant chi” or life force energy. According to TCM (traditional Chinese medicine), any lesion or problem area in the body will have stagnation of the flow of chi, and stimulation of certain points will clear this stagnation, bringing life force energy to the area, facilitating the body’s natural healing mechanisms. According to western science acupressure/acupuncture increases the flow of blood through the area, again facilitating the body’s healing mechanisms. It also relaxes muscles and reduces pain and inflammation.

Stimulating acupressure/acupuncture points by various means can facilitate hundreds of different positive effects in the body. In ancient times the points were stimulated with simple finger pressure. Later the Chinese used bamboo slivers. Then, when the industrial age unfolded, stainless steel needles were created and have been used ever since. With the new technological age came the development of refined electrical instruments and lasers and use of these devices for treating acupuncture points has proven to be very effective. Dr. Martin Orimenko uses both lasers and refined electrical instruments in his treatments as well as the original finger pressure or ‘acupressure’. This approach is gentle, harmless and highly effective. Kids love it!

There also exists a wonderful system of acupuncture known as ‘auricular therapy’ or ear acupuncture. There is a very detailed map of the entire body in the ear, three times more detailed than in foot reflexology, than can be extremely effective for treating many health issues. Not only are the body parts represented, but there are also specific points for a wide variety of conditions such as allergies, depression, hypertension, skin conditions, constipation and addictions, to name a few. Needles are often used, but I prefer a special instrument that not only detects imbalanced, low-energy points, but also treats them with an adjustable micro-amp electrical stimulation.

Acupuncture / acupressure is a wonderful healing modality that has withstood the test of time and is a great alternative to more invasive or drug related medical treatments. Acupressure and acupuncture can be used as alternative healing methods for treating sports injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, headaches, migraines, allergies and asthma, hormonal imbalances, PMS/Menstrual Imbalances, High Blood Pressure, Digestive Issues, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Depression, Anxiety, Stress, Insomnia, TMJ, Children’s Health, ADD/ADHD and Fertility.

About the Author: Dr. Martin Orimenko is a Chiropractor, Naturopath and Nutritionist who practices a unique blend of different holistic modalities in treating patients of all ages for a wide range of health conditions. Dr. Orimenko is currently available for treatments at his MainLine natural health center, the Live Well Holistic Health Center in Ardmore, PA Acupressure and Auricular Therapy are just a few of the modalities that he employs to support health and wellness in his natural healing practice. Other modalities include kinesiology, nutrition and cleansing, neuro-emotional technique, ayurveda, and natural supplement prescriptions.

New Holistic Health Center Thriving in Ardmore

Thursday, June 30th, 2011

There are many reasons why people seek out holistic methods of healing. Some turn to these alternative therapies because they do not have medical insurance. Some believe in the healing power of the body and mind. Still others find it as a last resort to relieve chronic pain has persisted more traditional forms of treatment.

Whatever the reasons that bring you to the Live Well Holistic Center in Ardmore, Dr. Martin Orimenko will likely greet you, as he did for me. Patients there fondly call him “Doctor Martin.”

This story came about after several Main Line residents—unknown to each other, with various backgrounds and incomes, and under independent circumstances—spoke about their positive outcomes from treatment at Live Well.

Keeping in mind that there are some vocal, rather rigidly traditional physicians who take a dim view, in general, of holistic medicine and healing methods, we decided to focus simply on the experience, and report on it.

The atmosphere in the office is calm and comforting, and the open-air courtyard leading into the office sets the tone even before you enter the office. Once inside, Dr. Martin’s wife and co-founder of the center, Traci (who is also a holistic health counselor), welcomes you as if entering her home.

Empirical Point, LLC Launches “Healthy New Year 2011″ with Alternative Medicine

Tuesday, March 1st, 2011

Philadelphia Healthy Living Events, News and Patient Information Programs and Tips & Guidance Featured as Part of Campaign for a Healthier 2011

Empirical Point, LLC, a leading Philadelphia Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine practice, located in Chestnut Hill, has launched a “Healthy New Year 2011” campaign to give patients more hands-on information and real-world tips about how to live healthier in 2011. This new program kicked off in early February and started with a series of online information and news, which can be found at www.philadelphia-acupuncture.com.

“Along with resolutions and promises to improve our health, the new year also brings a renewed commitment to living well and living healthy,” stated Sharon Sherman, M.S.O.M., D.OM., L.OM and founder of Empirical Point in Philadelphia. “At Empirical Point, we are committed to providing patients with a Chinese medicine and acupuncture practice dedicated to improving their health. I don’t just treat patients. I work together with them to get to the root of their ailments and conditions and to then map out an interactive and holistic plan to improve their overall well being. This Healthy New Year 2011 campaign is just one more way for us to interact with our patients and provide the latest news and tips on how to be well.”

Healthy New Year 2011 kicks off with “Alternative Medicine – Not So Alternative Anymore” – a program that is looking at the growing use and success of alternative medicine in the U.S. Despite the fact that Chinese Medicine and acupuncture have been used for thousands of years, they are just beginning to really take hold in many Western cultures as effective medical treatments. Empirical Point is using its website, blog, social media and events at its offices to explore and provide information about the growth of alternative medicine in the Western world – and how these “alternative” treatments may be helpful for patients who may have not yet considered them for common conditions like stress or chronic pain.

Healthy New Year 2011 campaign will also address the following topics later this year:

  • Pain – How to Address and Relieve it with Chinese Medicine
  • Building a Strong Immune System…and a Stronger You
  • Stressed? How to Relieve Anxiety and Be at your Best

New Holistic Wellness Center Opens on the Main Line

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
by Traci Orimenko, Holistic Health Counselor

The Live Well Holistic Health Center is open for business in Ardmore, PA, and we’re very excited to be here in the heart of the Main Line, offering a natural approach to health and healing to the greater Philadelphia area.

Dr. Martin Orimenko, DC, ND, FIACA is both the director and one of the founders of the Live Well Holistic Health Center, and he is a Chiropractor, Acupuncturist and Naturopath.  Dr. Martin combines these modalities, plus nutrition, Ayurveda, and lifestyle counseling, neuro-emotional work, and Kinesiologic Analysis to patients in his comprehensive Holistic Health Visits.  We also offer massage and reiki therapy sessions at Live Well.

Dr. Martin has almost 20 years of experience as a holistic healer, and he has treated over 5000 patients at his prior practices in Sausalito, California (where for 7 years he had Sausalito Chiropractic www.sausalitochiropractic.com) and in St. Louis, Missouri (where for the 12 years prior he had The Healing Center). 

We moved back home to the Philadelphia area so we could raise our son Alex surrounded by a large and loving family and immersed in the culture and communities in which we each grew up.  We’ve really appreciated being back home, in touch with our roots, and the four seasons, once again. 

And it’s clear that people here on the east coast are looking for holistic natural approaches to common medical issues like digestive problems, allergies, blood sugar imbalances, cholesterol problems, hormonal imbalances, inflammatory conditions, skin problems, environmental sensitivities, chronic fatigue, as well as musculoskeletal problems,  headaches and general pain.  We are looking forward to supporting people in the Philadelphia Area with their health and vibrancy, using a natural approach to medicine.  We’ve found that this is almost always more efficient and effective, and also less expensive, than our traditional medical system with its costly pharmaceuticals and their long list of side effects.

What makes Dr. Martin Orimenko stand out from other holistic practitioners is that he employs a combination of each of these treatment modalities in each visit to treat the whole person.  

Gentle Chiropractic & Bodywork
Chiropractic adjustments align your spine, relieve pinched nerves and facilitate healing by freeing up nerve energy. Bodywork alleviates muscle tension, corrects tendon and ligament issues and supports good posture.  Various physiotherapies stimulate blood flow, relieve muscle tension and reduce pain.  We also have a massage therapist available by appointment.

Acupuncture & Acupressure
Acupuncture and acupressure remove blockages in the flow of blood and vital energy, and specific points address specific health issues. These ancient approaches energize and balance organs and glands, and optimize the functioning of the body systems.  

Nutrition and Cleansing
Through adjustments to your diet, gentle cleansing programs and prescribing specific nutritional and herbal supplements, we will correct deficiencies, support detoxification and stimulate healing, optimizing your wellness and longevity.

Ayurveda
We will support you in balancing your body and mind through lifestyle modification in the areas of diet, exercises and daily routine in accordance with your constitution type or dosha.  

Emotional and Lifestyle Counseling
NeuroEmotional Technique removes the charge on emotional issues that impact your health and facilitates you in accomplishing your goals.  We also have a Holistic Health Counselor to work with you in focused sessions over a six month period to help you reach your optimum health and vibrancy by making small accessible changes in your eating habits and bringing more balance into other key areas of your life.
 
Natural Supplement Prescriptions 
We stock supplements for a wide range of health conditions and general wellness. Dr. Martin will determine the optimum nutritional support for your needs.  He will work with you to develop a customized program to help you reach your health goals.

We are conveniently located at 16 East Lancaster Avenue in Ardmore,
PA. Our office hours are Monday, Tuesday and Friday 9-5 and Wednesday and Thursday from 1-7, or by appointment. Please call to make an appointment.
