Treatments

Acupuncture

You will enter a clean, cozy room with soothing music and heat lamp. While the hair - fine needles are in place you will often experience a deep relaxation that is different than sleep. I loving call it "Aculand." Often, at the end of the treatment you will feel so relaxed that for several minutes you wish you could return to the restfulness. 

Chinese Herbs

In my style of practice I most commonly discuss the basic building blocks to wellness as the initial approach. Then, if a case is more complex and not responding to general nutritional supplementation and lifestyle adjustments, I then prescribe Chinese Herbs as a part of the patient's treatment plan. Always I follow my mantra that less is more.

 

Cupping

I, and most of my patients, love cupping therapy. I believe in it as a use for most any symptom presented. I have long used it successfully for releasing toxins in the skin, improving skin circulation, lung congestion, digestive stagnation, menstrual disorder and a wide range of pain complaints and structural rebalance, unlocking our "gristle." 

Gua Sha

Gua Sha is a fantastic home care therapy that I like to educate my patients on, and use in areas cupping can't reach. It is similar to a more modern therapy you may have experienced in physical therapy called Graston, Astym, etc. It is a technique to apply friction on the skin and muscle tissues to improve tissue health and movement. 

Mindful movement

This is a large undertone to my teachings as a healer. From a young age we were taught to ignore many of the signals our central nervous system (brain/mind)  communicates to us about basic needs, body posture and stress. Disconnecting ourselves from those messages often results in pain and poor life quality by the time the message is shouting at us to pay attention.
