Acupuncture

imageAcupuncture is an ancient healing technique which involves the insertion of fine, sterile, single-use needles into specific points on the body.  The needles direct the Qi, or vital energy, to flow freely throughout the body to promote natural healing and balance. 

The initial visit includes a thorough health history interview, physical exam and treatment as well as discussion/recommendations for lifestyle enhancements, nutritional recommendations and herbal formulas. Call or email for more details. 

 

Chinese Herbology

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.  Unlike Western herbology, Chinese herbology rarely uses single herbs, but instead, relies on combining medicinal substances into formulas which are carefully balanced to reduce side effects.  Herbal medicine can be used alone or as an adjunct to acupuncture care.  Herbal linaments, poultices and plasters may also be used externally for musculoskeletal injuries and other topical applications. Since each patient has different needs, a variety of herbs are carefully selected and combined that will synergistically blend together to achieve optimal results for your unique situation.  High-quality, professional-grade herbal medicines are prescribed in either loose form, granules, tablets or teapills.

Reiki

Reiki is a Japanese form of energy work that cleanses and balances the energy centers in the body. As a result, the body's natural self-healing mechanisms strengthen, helping to establish optimum health. During a session, the client relaxes on the massage table fully clothed. Reiki utilizes a gentle laying on of hands to remove blockages and release old energy patterns or beliefs that no longer serve, while balancing and restoring vital life force energy. The benefits of Reiki range from the release of habitual mental/emotional stress to alleviating chronic pain. Private Reiki classes/attunements are also available. Call or message for details.
