ACUPUNCTURE Small fine flexible needles are inserted at specific points on the body normalizing body function. This helps to bring the body back into balance thereby revitalizing health. CRANIOSACRAL THERAPY Craniosacral Therapy involves a very light touch. It also helps to open pathways in the body, but in a different way than acupuncture does. It is used in a variety of health conditions and is like acupuncture, is very relaxing. HERBS Herbs are plants with medicinal properties. While acupuncture works on a physical level, herbs work on a deeper, chemical level. When you ingest an herbal formula - whether in liquid or pill form - your body will absorb it and react to it chemically. By combining herbs with acupuncture, a deeper level of healing can be achieved. HOMEOPATHY Homeopathic remedies are diluted forms of plant, animals or minerals that help to stimulate healing mechanisms within the body. Homeopathy is based on the laws of similars, which is to say that like cures like. If you had poison ivy, the remedy Rhus Tox (a diluted version of poison ivy) would help the rash disappear. If in a healthy population a substance causes a specific set of symptoms, then in a population with those symptoms, they will find relief in a very diluted version of the same substance. MEDITATION CLASSES Meditation helps to bring inner peace. The simple act of sitting in stillness brings great spiritual awareness to the soul, helps one to focus and sparks the creative flow. It takes practice and patience to learn to meditate. At my ‘Acupuncture Happy Hour’ needles will be inserted in your ear at specific points to help bring a great sense of relaxation. While you have the needles in the ear, I lead a guided imagery meditation. When we are finished you will calm, relaxed and refreshed. NAET Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Technique This system helps to eliminate allergies from the body.

FACIAL REJUVENATION (MEI ZEN METHOD) This method of facial rejuvenation brings collagen and elastin back to the surface of the skin. It will make your skin glow and reduce fine lines and wrinkles.

CUPPING This ancient Chinese modality helps to open energetic pathways, releases muscle tension, activates the lymphatic system and helps the body to eliminate toxins. Cupping is done by placing a cup over the skin and by using either suction or heat creating a vacuum. The vacuum releases muscle tension and causing the release of toxins and the activation of the lymphatic system. FOOD THERAPY You can improve your health just by eating every day foods.
