Natural forces within us are the true healers of disease. ~ Hippocrates

Najah A. Salaam, L.Ac.

Najah Abdus-Salaam's love for Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine began fifteen years ago with her first acupuncture treatment.

It was so profoundly powerful that she decided right then and there to become a healer. She graduated with her BS in Marketing and Advertising from Kean University in New Jersey and after working in her field for a number of years and not feeling fulfilled,

Najah holds a Masters in Traditional Oriental Medicine from Pacific College of Oriental Medicine in San Diego.

Najah completed her externships at San Diego's Center at St. Lutheran Church, and the San Diego Cancer Research Institute in Encinitas. Her passion for assisting the elderly population and those affected with terminal illness is paired with her compassionate nature as a gentle healer with a conscience ability to hold a safe space for her patients.

"Your experience with Najah is a combination of the therapeutic benefits of acupuncture, healing herbs, crystal energy, and moxbustion with sound therapy."

When working with Najah you'll benefit from her grounded nature, love and knowledge of crystals and gemstones, her love for food as medicine, meditation, classical Feng Shui, and her knowledge for alternative ways to heal body, mind, and spirit.

Crystals and sage to heal the soul

Deep-Soul Level Healing with Crystals and Gemstones

We are energetic beings. Crystals and gemstones are energetic beings too. When these vibrations meet, they create resonance, bringing harmony to the body, mind and spirit. This is why healing with gemstones works, and it is very powerful. Each Deep Soul Healing Session begins with a consultation, where I ask you specific questions that guide me to the deeper reasons you may be experiencing discomfort. In our session, I will do a Chakra reading, and use crystals and gemstones to open certain meridians that speak to you on the level of the soul. This treatment is for anyone who feels like they are stuck in a cycle that they can't seem to get themselves out of. This can be physically, emotionally, or spiritually. Click here to learn more.

What Is Acupuncture?

Acupuncture works by balancing the energies of the body's internal environment in order to bring the body into a state of health and harmony. Acupuncture uses hair-like needles inserted into the body at various points where energy concentrates. Each point has a specific function, that when combined with each other, create a symbiotic effect in the body that allows the body to heal and repair.

What can Acupuncture Treat?

Headaches, Migraines, Seasonal Allergies, Asthma, High Blood Pressure, Digestive Issues (SIBO, IBS, Ulcerative Colitis, Crohns, etc.), Fertility and Postpartum, Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Post-Surgery, Side Effects of Chemotherapy, Trauma caused by accidents, Depression, Stress, Anxiety, and A LOT more.

What can I expect to experience in my first Acupuncture treatment?

You can expect a full initial consultation so Najah can address your immediate concerns and use her experience to assess and diagnose best treatment options. You can expect a fully relaxed experience along with an explanation of the hair like needles that are used and any gentle sensations you can expect during the treatment. We recommend wearing comfortable and loose-fitting clothing. Since acupuncture can lower the blood sugar, it's recommended to enjoy a light snack prior.

What other therapies can be done?

Gua Sha loosely translates as 'scraping', where a tool is used to scrape the skin to relieve congestion. In Chinese Medicine, 'Where there is stagnation, there is pain.', is a commonly used phrase. Therefore, using gua sha is helpful in cases of muscle strain or spasm, where the area may not be getting proper blood and energy flow.

Gua sha is also very helpful to relieve the common cold, fever, stiffness, nausea, and even chronic internal organ disorders.

Moxibustion (Moxa) is the use of heat to heal the body in various ways. Traditionally, the herb used in moxa treatments is Mugwort (Ai ye). Mugwort is know for its extreme high heat that is harnessed in various ways to heal the body. Chinese Medicine, heat is what heals the body, by either putting heat (energy) into the body, or in some cases, using the heat of Mugwort to pull heat out of the body.

Moxa can be used above the skin, directly on the skin, or even on top of needles. It feels so good, heating certain areas, you'll become a big fan of moxa.
