“Characterized by the treatment of the whole person, taking into account mental and social factors, rather than just the symptoms of a disease,” holistic wellness is a common alternative to prescription medications and similar courses of mainstream treatment.
One of the most respected natural local businesses on Maui, Three Treasures is a beloved Holistic Wellness Center in the heart of Haiku, the rainforest-y, hippie-ish north shore gem on Maui. For travelers and/or locals seeking a new kind of treatment, we recommend a visit to their location.
In practice, Holistic Wellness takes on many forms for many kinds of ailments, most of which we’ve all dealt with at some point in our lives (or will). Through Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine and Eye Care treatments, Three Treasures has gained a loyal following of Mauians, which grows by the day as more and more people expand their ideas of treatment.
Below we’ll offer some facts you may not have known about the services listed above, and we hope to see you feeling healthier as soon as possible!
Quick Facts: Acupuncture
#1: While its most common use is for pain treatment, it treats much more.
Other common uses include insomnia, mood swings, emotional instability, infections, digestive issues, headaches, neuropathies, TMJ, tendonitis, respiratory problems, asthma, sore throat, tooth pain, menopause, morning sickness, carpal tunnel, arthritis, addiction issues, PMS and more.
#2 It’s approved by the World Health Organization.
It’s not just your yoga teacher that approves! Since Acupuncturists have to go through extremely thorough, high level training and certifications to work on people, and acupuncture has been a Chinese remedy since around 100 BC, it’s no wonder the WHO finally agrees on its effectiveness.
#3 You should do it more than once.
Acupuncture is a cumulative treatment, so talk with a Three Treasures Acupuncturist about your goals to get an idea of how many sessions they recommend for your specific situation.
Quick Facts: Eye Treatment
#1 Micro Acupuncture can improve eyesight in people with medically diagnosed degenerative diseases.
Developed in 1984 in Denmark by Dr. Andy Freddy Dahlgren, Micro Acupuncture has a 90% success rate for “meeting expectations for improved vision.” Using the 48 acupuncture points in the hands and feet, Three Treasures’ own Ricardo Molczadzki has been successfully implementing these treatments for years.
#2 Micro Acupuncture is recommended for those with macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, glaucoma, retinitis pigmentosa, retinal detachment, Stargardt’s disease, cataracts, optic neuritis, color blindness, etc.
Treatment length and frequency varies case by case, so we recommend a consultation with Ricardo for more information and specifics.
Quick Facts: Herbal Medicine
#1 Natural herbs contain tons of healing compounds.
Unlike pharmaceuticals, which can lead to unwanted side effects, herbal medicines concentrate the whole, medicinal parts of the plant, for their many healing benefits.
#2 They’re often ingested via tinctures, elixirs, herbal teas, ointments & oils.
Popular Tincture Formulas sold at Three Treasures include Bone & Arthritis Formula, Chronic Upper-Lower Back Pain, Liver Detox, Neck & Shoulder Support, Cramp Free Legs, Adrenal & Kidney Support and more.
#3 They’re also an affordable option.
While the Chinese formulas and tincture formulas are concocted with care and consideration, there is no major markup compared to their drug counterparts.
