Acupuncture

We utilize surgically sterile, single-use stainless-steel needles to realign the energetic pathways of your body - pathways that encompass nerve roots, blood and other bodily fluids, electrical impulses, and biomagnetic wavelengths.

Acupuncture needles are inserted into specific points, which are part of a comprehensive web that spans the entire human body. When the body is out of balance - physically, emotionally, or spiritually - the body's intricate workings can create a cascading effect of pathological health conditions.

herbal medicine

Herbal therapy has been utilized for centuries. Unlike the prescription process in Western medicine, herbs are used based on how the body is expressing the issue (what we call in Chinese medicine the ‘presenting pattern’). One patient coming in complaining of sciatica may be given a formula that is completely different from the next person coming in with the exact same complaint. In herbal therapy, it’s not a one size fits all approach: it’s individualized to meet the specific needs of the patient.

cupping

By eliciting a strong suction, tight muscles are stretched and relaxed.  The therapeutic benefit of cupping lies in the fact that when muscles naturally relax, there is a subsequent decrease in pressure on nerves, bones, joints, and connective tissues. 

TIGHT, SPASMED, AND PAINFUL MUSCLE DISORDERS CAN PUT A STOP TO DAILY ACTIVITIES, ESPECIALLY IF YOU'RE AN ATHLETE. CUPPING ALLOWS FOR GREATER MOBILITY AND LESS PAIN.

Coaching

Our actions don't lie. 

If your actions betray the way you feel inside, if you're not living your best life, if you feel dissatisfied and have an inkling that you have control over changing that feeling, then our question is:

why not do something about it? 

Coaching sessions are intense. We use the basic tenets of Positive Psychology in conjunction with the five element theory of Chinese medicine.

This combination has the propensity to bring about real and lasting changes to your behavior and thought patterns. 

Manifesting Miracles is our program to jumpstart a new life. It's is another tool to connect your mind to your body - and guess what results from that?

Positive change.

New thought patterns. More self-awareness. Clients have changed jobs, transformed relationships, booked long-put-off vacations. Why? Because the relationship with self changes. 

Breathwork

Breathing is intuitive, right? In relaxation, our autonomic nervous system takes care of it (the parasympathetic branch is in charge of rest-and-digest), and we don't even have to think about it.

But what happens when we get propelled into fight-or-flight mode?

This happens with perceived danger, which used to be lions and tigers and bears, oh my.

Now, perceived danger is as simple as being late for a meeting, sleeping through your alarm, stressed that you forgot to pack the right lunch for your child.

And yet our ancient bodies still respond the same way: breathing becomes shallow. Heart speeds up. Digestion slows.

Cortisol and adrenaline are released. 

Breathwork helps to calm the sympathetic nervous system in a really deliberate way. YOU are breathing. YOU are experiencing the emotions that arise. YOU are clearing the decks of old, crappy, stuck stuff. 

Are you ready for these dramatic shifts?

Mind/Body Eating

We’ve all forgotten how to eat and yet, we truly are what we eat. 

THE PREVAILING THOUGHTS IN OUR SOCIETY ARE THAT

we eat to stay alive,

WE EAT IN A SPECIFIC WAY TO HAVE A CERTAIN LOOK,

WE EAT BECAUSE IT'S WHAT WE DO WITH OTHERS.

And because we no longer have a connection with our food source, we move further and further away from the idea of true nourishment:

that food is nutrition, that food is vitality, that food is a source of change.

We focus on clean and whole foods because our focus is on clean and whole human beings. We are what we eat, and what is now provided to us by a for-profit industry is largely not whole and largely not clean. Encased in plastic, our food has gone from a birthright to something of which we need to be conscious consumers.
