RIPLEY — Acupuncture and Holistic Health has introduced two new therapies in her Ripley office.

Patricia Link, L. Ac., a licensed acupuncturist and oriental medicine practitioner, owner of Acupuncture and Holistic Health, recently remodeled two spaces in her office creating a Near and Far Infrared Therapy room and a Himalayan Salt Meditation room.

“The red-light portion of the light spectrum is very beneficial to skin, muscle, and joint health,” Link said. “It’s a safe and natural way to reduce muscle tension, improve circulation, and reduce pain and inflammation.”

Acupuncture is recognized by the National Institute of Health and the World Health Organization to be an effective treatment for a myriad of health ailments.

“At AHH, we synergize Eastern and Western medicines to heal the body, mind, and spirit,” Link said. “Acupuncture and other oriental medicine techniques are safe, effective, drug-free therapies.”

The Himalayan Salt Meditation room is a tranquil space with ocean waves and meditative sounds. While the ambience participants into a state of deep relaxation, the salt provides benefits to the respiratory, immune, lymphatic and nervous systems.

Salt therapy, also known as halotherapy, also is used to treat skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis because it is a natural disinfectant, is antimicrobial and antibacterial.

Additional services offered are massage, reiki, sound therapy and emotional freedom technique, also called “tapping, among others. The company offers virtual workshops including the popular Chai Tea and Tai Chi workshop where participants sample herbal teas and learn several tai chi moves.

Family and group meditation also is offered.
