Chinese Herbology

$90.00 per hour

Chinese herbal medicine is a 2,000 year old tradition using naturally occurring substances — including herbs — to enhance one's health and vitality. As opposed to Western medicine, the foundation of this approach is to support the body's natural self-healing mechanisms and abilities.

Since each patient has different needs, I carefully select and combine a variety of herbs that will synergistically blend together to achieve optimal results for your unique situation. I prescribe high-quality, professional-grade herbal medicines that are available only to qualified licensed professionals.

Moxibustion

$90.00 per hour

Moxibustion is a Traditional Chinese Medicine technique that involves the burning of mugwort, a small, spongy herb, to facilitate healing and health. Moxibustion has been used for healing purposes throughout Asia for thousands of years. The purpose of moxibustion, as with most forms of Traditional Chinese Medicine, is to strengthen the blood, stimulate the flow of Qi (energy), and enhance your overall vitality and health.

Among other benefits, a landmark study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 1998 found that 75.4% of women suffering from breech presentations before childbirth had fetuses that rotated to the normal position after receiving moxibustion at an acupuncture point on the bladder meridian.

Acupuncture

$90.00 per hour

Acupuncture is one of the oldest, most commonly used forms of medicine in the world. Originating in China more than 2,500 years ago, acupuncture is currently one of the most thoroughly researched, practiced, and respected forms of complementary medicine available anywhere.

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, your overall health is determined by the quality of the Qi (energy) flow through the natural pathways of your body (meridians). Acupuncture uses a variety of techniques, including placing very thin sterile needles into specific points on the body, to stimulate and improve your Qi flow. The many benefits of acupuncture include:

  • Pain reduction
  • Stress and tension relief
  • Increased energy levels
  • Stronger digestion
  • Relief from bad habits and addictions
  • Greater sense of overall health and well-being

Seitai Shinpo Acupuncture

$90.00 per hour

WHAT IS SEITAI SHINPO?

SEI – correct, proper, original

TAI – body, posture

SHIN – acupuncture

PO – method

Seitai Shinpo is a system of acupuncture developed by Daiichi Sorimachi in the 1970s. He was the first to discover that internal organ systems could be balanced through alignment of the spine with acupuncture and moxibustion. Seitai Shinpo has been most influenced by the acupuncture-moxibustion style of Sawada Ken and the structural therapy of Sotai Ho as developed Dr. Keizo Hashimoto. For more information about Sotai Ho click here.

Treatments vary between different practitioners, but generally speaking a seitai shinpo treatment incorporates a combination of needling the front and the back of the body and the application of moxibustion using a herb called artemesia vulgaris. Diagnosis and treatment is influenced more strongly by the observation of structural distortions of the body than the reading of pulses or tongue as in other styles of acupuncture.

Goals of Seitai Shinpo Treatment

1. Correcting distortions in skeletal structure by treating the soft tissues. And thus resolving disease through the alignment of the structure.

2. Increasing the body’s natural immune response through the use of moxa.

3. Harmonizing the sympathetic & parasympathetic nervous systems. (Balancing the “fight or flight” stress response with the “rest and relaxation” response.)

4. Relieving pain and numbness through the stimulation of the vertebral nerves and the release of endorphins, serotonin, and other “feel good” chemicals.

5. Strengthening adrenal activity and supporting the cardiovascular system.

6. Stimulating the lymphatic system.

7. Balancing the organ systems.

Please note: The goals above represent our aim for each Seitai Shinpo treatment, however  treatment results vary from patient to patient.
