There are many ways to stimulate Acupuncture points for healing. As part of my treatment protocols, I can use various methods to stimulate points including an FDA cleared medical device and adjunct tools such as acupressure, gem therapy, Tei-shin and ear seeds.
As one of the most powerful and oldest holistic medicines to date --clinical evidence has shown that the exceptional restorative healing benefits of Acupuncture are usually achieved in a series of treatments.
Most conditions seen today require more than one Acupuncture session to achieve optimal results. We follow the method used in Chinese hospitals where a course of treatment (single sessions administered in a short period of time) are used for the most successful outcomes.
If you consider yourself “needle shy” or sensitive, I am pleased to share that I offer a signature Acupuncture whole body style of treatment, the A.N.N.A™ (Advanced Non- Needle Acupuncture) treatment, that uses a custom combination of traditional non-invasive tools and the most advanced and effective acupuncture technology, that provides the healing benefits of Acupuncture without causing you a single “ouch.”
The definition of aromatherapy is therapy using scent-- of which the scent of essential oils is the only scent used. The therapeutic use of essential oils in holistic healing has been well documented over thousands of years. Aromatherapy can also be considered the most concentrated form of herbal medicine, therefore it is extremely important to understand the complexity and potential side-effects of improper use.
Clinical aromatherapy is the systematic use of essential oils in the treatment of medical conditions. Please note: I do not diagnose medical conditions.
I only use organic, all natural or wild-crafted 100% pure essential oils to promote physical, emotional and mental well-being.
Pure essential oils have anti-fungal, anti-bacterial properties that can be extremely beneficial to promote respiratory health as well as being used topically to relieve muscular aches and pains when used in conjunction with massage.
In addition,I use the healing benefits of aromatherapy combined with other healing modalities such as massage therapy and Ayurveda to accelerate healing and promote over-all wellness.
Cupping is a traditional form of therapy used in Chinese medicine to remove stagnation and promote healing. It will leave a mark on your skin as seen on celebrities and world-class athletes that have had this therapy. Painless and effective.
Chinese herbal therapy is actually the largest branch of chinese medicine and is an effective way to treat internal medicine conditions such as women's health and digestive and can further support the efficacy of your acupuncture treatments. I only use clinically tested and verified formulas that are available only through health care practitioners.
