Lennon Boggs, LMT (#MA74224): Licensed and Insured Massage Therapist in the state of Florida. Graduated in Massage Therapy from the Florida College of Natural Health. Graduated with a Master’s in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine from the Atlantic Institute of Oriental Medicine.

Modalities include acupressure massage (no needles) and auricular (ear seeds). Acupressure works by activating points on the body with pressure, along meridians to allow energy flow, and bring the body back to balance.

Auricular is a microsystem that works with the brain and has points on the ear that correspond to every part of the body. Specializing in overall wellness, homeostasis, pain, stress, and weight loss, etc.

The therapist will examine your medical history, and perform a brief intake with you, addressing your concerns. The client will be clothed at all times throughout the session (preferably shorts and a t-shirt). No lotion/oil provides for a less invasive, more hygienic, safe & professional environment.

 

Practiced for thousands of years in China, acupressure uses the same principles as acupuncture to promote relaxation and wellness. Acupressure is acupuncture without needles. Traditional Chinese medicine utilizes acupoints, or acupressure points, that exist along meridians, or channels, in your body. These are the same energy meridians and acupoints as those located in acupuncture. Through these channels flows vital energy, or a life force called qi (chi). These 12 major meridians connect specific organs or networks of organs, enabling a system of communication and function throughout your body. When one of these meridians is blocked or out of balance, illness can occur. Acupressure helps restore balance by activating points that have a specific function. The purpose of acupressure is to restore health and balance to the body's channels of energy and to regulate yin (substance) and yang (action). Acupressure not only helps the energy fields and body but also the mind, emotions, and spirit.
