Acupuncture can be used to help with infertility of many kinds, anxiety, depression, fatigue, pain syndromes of all kinds, allergies, balance, vertigo, the common cold, and even autoimmune disorders. Acupuncture is a relaxing and holistic treatment that can be your first line of defense and an important wellness tool also.
(30 mins/ can be blended with other 60 or 90-minute treatments)
Cupping originated as a part of Chinese medicine - the glass or plastic cup is suctioned onto the body to help relax muscles and increase blood flow to an area with acute or chronic pain. This treatment is a wonderful aid in sports injury and recovery as well and is often used alongside acupuncture.
Craniosacral Therapy - CST
Craniosacral Therapy is a light touch, hands-on, deeply relaxing therapy that can relieve all types of pain syndromes along with a host of other physical and emotional concerns. CST works great for low back pain, shoulder pain, headaches, brain fog, degenerative disorders, TMJ - (temporomandibular joint) pain, stress, insomnia, and anxiety.
Reiki/ Theta Healing/ Medical Qi Gong
These 3 modalities are not entirely interchangeable but are all very similar and can be used exclusively or combined, hands-on or hands-off using light touch, with meditative breathing and visualization these treatments create a warm and safe environment for the patient to open up their energy system to the healing energies that are fundamental in the body and in the universe. This treatment is a wonderful adjunct to nearly any other and creates a deep sense of peace within the body and mind to facilitate healing and the removal of obstacles to healing. Energy work of this nature becomes vital at certain times in life when things seem stuck or the healing process needs revitalization. These treatments work great for pain, and emotional tumult, alongside nearly all cancer treatments, headaches, anxiety, and general well-being.
Essential Oil Acupoint Therapy
(30 mins and can be blended with other 60 or 90-minute treatments)
Don't like needles??? This is a wonderful, relaxing light touch treatment in which specific acupuncture points and oils are used in combination based on patient goals and using the Chinese medical theory to diagnose and treat. These treatment protocols were developed by a 30-year Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine veteran who now travels all around the world teaching these amazing protocols as continuing education to medical and wellness professionals.

Sound Bowl Healing Meditation
A wonderful passive form of meditation and healing where 7 individually tuned quartz crystal singing bowls are played while participants are laying on a table or the floor able to absorb the vibrations which resonate with the organs and tissues of the body as well as the Chakra/ Dantien or energy centers of the body to promote healing.
