Reiki Classes

Classes are Facilitated By Maxine Bornstein or Debra Avery

Reiki is taught in a series of levels, each builds on the knowledge and experience of the previous level. Reiki is simple to learn and use. It does not take a specific knowledge base or belief system. Class descriptions are below.

Acupuncture & Associated Therapies is fortunate to have two Reiki Master Teachers, Maxine Bornstein and Deb Avery, trained in the Usui System of Natural Healing.

Reiki works with our body, mind, and spirit. It is a gentle self-help tool to help us reduce stress and promote relaxation and balance. Learning it for self-treatments or for practitioner work can be done by anyone.

Class information will be listed below when there is one being offered. Check back again or join our newsletter to get updates!

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy - Offered by Lauren Fox, FNP, NC

Lauren is available to see patients for homeopathic consults and Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement evaluations at Acupuncture and Associated Therapies the first weekend of each month. Call her directly at 413.535.6022 to make an appointment.

Considering the use of bio-identical hormone replacement treatment? While it is natural for hormones to decline and eventually cease to be produced (in both men and women), it is NOT natural to replace them. However many individuals can benefit greatly from hormone replacement.

Lauren uses bio-identical hormone replacement when other complementary health methods have proven unsuccessful. Bio-identical hormones are hormones that mimic the body's hormonal composition and function; they are naturally extracted from plants, soy, and yams.
